Most dog foods contain 2%-5% Fiber. That is more than enough for your pet to stay healthy and happy.
In most cases.
However, there are times when you need to increase the fiber in your pet’s diet. Sometimes your vet will recommend it. Or, you may be here because you pet is suffering from irregular bowels or straining and you want to go ahead and try food with more fiber.
Probably the most important reason is that a dog with a healthy digestive system is going to have a stronger immune system.
Dogs that do not have regular bowel movements are going to deal with constipation, bloating and fat gain — all three being very real problems that can be costly to treat.
Finally, dogs with a poor diet may have impacted and smelly anal glands.
Plenty of fiber can help with that.
