Image result for Food AllergiesIt can be a quite complicated task to locate what the best food for your dog with allergies is. Every dog with food allergies may have a completely different sensitivity to different foods. The simple answer is that there is no best food for dogs with allergies, but there may be a best food for your dog. There are a few simple ways to locate it.
First you need to understand what exactly your dog is allergic to. There are many different ingredients that are common in the dry dog food we commonly feed our pets that may be causing the problem. The discomfort your dog is experiencing probably has come from a relatively small number of ingredients however. The main things to look out for are dairy products, meats, and grains. Beef seems to be a major cause of allergies. You will read in some places it is the preservatives and coloring that is causing the problem, luckily you don’t need to worry about them. They can cause health problems, but allergies isn’t one of them. You also need to avoid feeding your dog human food even in small amounts. It may be fine for a dog without allergies but for one with allergies it can be destructive to their health.
An elimination diet is how you locate what your dogs allergies are. This is a very simple process. First you need to look at the food, or foods, that your dog is currently eating. Note the ingredients in them, especially the ones you believe may be causing the allergies. You then must switch your dog to something totally different. Many people suggest cooking your dog food, such as a meal of rice and venison, but switching to a different food should be fine. I would go with a hypoallergenic dog food made with ingredients you know your dog has never tried.
