The Difference Between Grain-Free and Gluten-Free

Gluten is a protein found in many different types of grains, including wheat, barley and rye. As these grains are common ingredients in dog food for carbohydrates, many dogs have developed gluten allergies or intolerances. 

However, your dog may be allergic to all grains, not just gluten. Therefore, many gluten-free gains can trigger a reaction, including rice, quinoa, soy, buckwheat, corn, flax, sorghum, and tapioca. Our gluten-free dog food is also grain-free, and we have sourced alternative carbohydrates to protect your pup from multiple allergens.

Food Allergies in Dogs

Whilst the jury is still out on whether or not dogs can suffer from coeliac disease as humans can, there is evidence to support the presence of gluten intolerance in dogs. It typically begins to affect dogs early in their life, often between three and six months old. However, an intolerance can develop at any time. Our dog food is gluten-free and suitable for pups over two months old, meaning it can support them throughout their lives, even if they develop an intolerance in their golden years.

Symptoms of Gluten Intolerance

You should look for symptoms to cater to your best friend’s dietary needs. Slowly and safely transitioning to our gluten-free dog food can reduce the severity and frequency of these issues, though you should always consult a vet for allergy testing, diagnosis and treatment. Monitor your dog’s behaviour for the following symptoms:

Stomach Distress

The most common symptom of gluten intolerance is stomach trouble, including vomiting, diarrhoea, gas and mucus in stools.

Dry or Sensitive Skin

Dry, flaky skin, rashes and bumps can indicate food allergies or intolerances. However, they are also symptoms of seasonal allergies, so you should consult a vet for comprehensive testing.

Weight Loss

Intolerances disturb digestion and prevent your dog from absorbing essential nutrients from their food. If your pup is losing weight quickly and their diet has not changed, a gluten intolerance could be to blame.


Scratching comes hand-in-hand with skin conditions, as a result of either a food intolerance or a flea allergy. A vet can test your dog to confirm.

Chewing Paws

Intolerances often lead to inflammation of your dog’s paws. This agitation can be very uncomfortable, and your pup may lick or chew their paws for relief.

Dull Coat

If your pooch’s coat is dull or shabby, a gluten intolerance may hinder their ability to absorb the nutrients required to maintain it.

Chronic Ear Infections

When a dog consumes large amounts of gluten, yeast can build up, leaving dark waxy deposits in their ears. As a result, they may shake their head excessively.

Our Gluten-Free Dog Food Recipe

We only use sustainably sourced natural ingredients, setting us apart from other gluten-free dog foods. It is made in the UK using wonky produce from British farms to reduce food waste and avoid the excess fossil fuel consumption of imports.

Instead of grains, we include potato and sweet potato as our carbohydrates. They offer additional vitamin A, B6 and C, iron, magnesium and fibre to promote healthy immune systems and digestion. Our cold press manufacturing method retains more of these nutrients than traditional hot techniques, delivering more nourishment into every meal. Discover our recipes and their nutritional values:

Protein 28%, Fat 11%, Fibre 5%, Ash 7%

My Patterdale Terrier has been eating Bug Bakes for over 12 months now - he is full of energy, has a shiny coat & looks fit & healthy.
It makes me feel better that I am helping the environment too.
Thank you

My cockapoo loves grain-free bug bakes. We stumbled across the brand when trying to find alternatives to meat and fish-based dog food, initially feeding a half and half mix for a couple of months. My dog is now on a fully bug bakes diet and is thriving - she is full of energy, her coat has become softer, and I love that her diet is now much more climate-friendly. Highly recommended.


Cannot fault this food, I have been giving this to my chihuahua for some time now and he loves it. Great customer service experience and super fast delivery, very happy customer
