Food allergies in dogs is a topic that is proving to be a rising concern for many dog owners and it’s something that as owners we need to be mindful of.
A food allergy occurs when a dog’s immune system mistakenly identifies a particular food ingredient as harmful, which therefore causes defensive antibodies to fight the invading enemy, in this case, the food!
Whilst there are different symptoms associated with different conditions, common symptoms of an allergy can include the following:
- Skin Rash
- Paw Biting
- Obsessive Licking
Most hypoallergenic dog foods are designed to avoid the use of ingredients that are most likely to provoke an allergic reaction but remember, it is always best to consult a veterinarian if you suspect that your dog has a food allergy and before feeding your dog any form of hypoallergenic dog food.
Finding the best dog food for allergies can be challenging, but it is disheartening to see your pet friend sick and when you’ve established that this is due to his diet, trying to find a remedy as soon as possible will be something that will be at the forefront of your duties as a loving owner.
