Hypoallergenic Dog Food:

Prevent Dog Skin Allergies - Get the Right Food for Your Dog

Dogs with food sensitivities need hypoallergenic dog food. Dog skin allergies are linked to food. Prevention is a good dog allergy treatment: try a hypoallergenic food like California natural dog food



The best dog allergy remedy treatment is prevention: don't feed your dog commercial dog food that has chemicals, fillers, by-products and preservatives that are unhealthy for your dog and can cause dog skin allergies and digestive issues.

One of the best known hypoallergenic dog foods is California Natural Dog Food. This dog food product contains only high-quality protein, fat and carbohydrate ingredients. Additionally, for those dogs with specific allergies to grains, California Natural Dog Food has grain-free food products.




What's in Hypoallergenic Dog Food?

Hypoallergenic dog foods are protein-rich: for example, fish, lamb, chicken, venison and more. Some vitamin and mineral supplements may be added such as calcium, potassium, vitamin A and C, and more.

Brown rice is considered one of the 'safest' of the grains for dogs; but never give your dog too much of any grain or starch (such as sweet potatoes) because a dog's digestive system is not built to process large amounts of starches.

If you are buying commercially prepared hypoallergenic dog food make sure that you buy food with limited and specific ingredients, especially if you are trying to find out what triggers your dog's allergies.

For example, buy lamb and brown rice natural hypoallergenic food or salmon and sweet potato, or chicken and brown rice. Don't buy mixed proteins or mixed starches, it becomes too difficult to find out what your dog is allergic to if you feed your pet too much food variety.

The best hypoallergenic food is homemade dog food. If you prepare the food yourself you will know exactly what is going into the food your dog eats and you can try to eliminate a food type one at a time until you isolate the cause of dog skin allergies or other allergic reactions.

Always talk to your veterinarian about the food that you feed your dog. Your vet knows the breed and may be able to much more quickly identify the foods the breed is known to react to, as well as tell you what the best food is as a dog allergy treatment, and prevention.

All dog breeds need good nutrition for oral and dental health, a good skin and coat, bright eyes and overall good health. You can find high quality commercial dog foods with the necessary nutrients for optimum health but you will have to look for them. Not all dog food brands are created equal; we like California Natural Dog Food in particular but there are other good hypoallergenic dog foods available (and the best is to make your own).




Dog Allergy Treatment

Many dogs have food allergies; it seems like this is an ever-growing problem. Allergies can not only be uncomfortable for your dog, they can be life threatening. Please make sure that you feed your dog hypoallergenic food that is natural and healthy and that has no additives, fillers, chemicals or preservatives.

Either buy a good natural and organic dog food or make homemade dog food that is good for your pet. If your dog is recovering from dog skin allergies, we do recommend PetAlive Allergy Itch Ease.

This is a herbal remedy that will temporarily relieve skin allergies and itch, while you try to find out what your dog is allergic to and eliminate it. Discuss allergies and dog allergy treatment with your veterinarian before starting to use natural remedies.
