The 2016 Kosher for Passover Dog Food List

“This post contains affiliate links, and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.”


April 22nd begins the observation of Passover, an 8-day Spring  celebration of the freedom of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. Through certain rituals, modern day Jews have the ability to relive and experience the true freedom their ancestors gained.

From the evening of April 22 through the evening of April 30, in recognition of the unleavened bread that the Israelites ate when they left Egypt, Jews do not eat – or keep in their possession – any chametz, or  grains that can become chametz. This includes any food or drink that contains even a trace of wheat, barley, rye, oats, spelt or their derivatives.

Because dogs are family members, sharing our homes and mealtimes, joining us in celebrations, and because Jews cannot be in possession of these grains during Passover, we’ve compiled this list of Passover-approved dog foods that are highly recommended for quality, healthfulness, and taste.

Please note. There are many other dog foods that do not contain grains in them. This is the only HEALTHY Kosher For Passover list. We have eliminated companies with a history of recalls or products that include corn – which although permitted in dog food on Passover – is not ideal for your dogs.

There are other Passover-friendly dog foods available in addition to this list. Look for grain-free options or those with rice as the only grain. While corn is an acceptable grain to feed during Passover, it is proven to be an unhealthy ingredient for dogs and should be avoided. The Passover-approved dog foods on this list would all make excellent choices for feeding your dog year round, too.

Don’t forget to find gluten free and grain-free treats for your furriest family members, too! We love Wellness’s Pure Rewards Dog Snacks for the perfect Passover dog treat.
