Food Allergies in Dogs

It seems that allergies are becoming more and more common in dogs, and foods are one of the main triggers. With so many types of foods and treats out there, you have to read the labels to understand exactly what you’re feeding your furry friend.

High-quality, natural, and easily digestible foods should be at the top of any ingredient list. But some dogs are allergic to specific items regardless of their quality—such as certain protein sources, or grains like wheat and corn—and need to steer clear of foods or treats containing these allergy triggers.

The good news is that there are many new products on the market that address allergy issues, but before you spend a lot of money on new foods and treats, be sure to talk to your veterinarian about your dog’s nutritional needs. Consider eliminating one food ingredient at a time, and make sure you do your homework!
