Best Dog Food For Allergies
A dog suffering from allergies is a common concern for pet owners. Not only does the pet owner stress over what to do in order to give their dog some relief, but the dog is in constant discomfort. The unending itching also leads to constant scratching, which can damage the skin and turn into many other more severe issues.
Bathing your dog might provide short-term relief, but it will only cover up the symptoms. You’re not dealing with the underlying issue, the allergy itself. Veterinarians are also quick to prescribe various medications when a dog suffers from allergies. The pills might offer some relief but are often costly and might have their own side effects to deal with.
The best way to provide long-lasting relief for your dog suffering from allergies is to provide them with a healthy and natural diet. Our Rick’s Dog Deli food is made with USDA inspected ingredients. It might be food for dogs, but we still use all human-grade quality ingredients. The food is prepared in our kitchen and then frozen to lock in the freshness.
Our Allergy Relief dog food is the best food for dogs with allergies. It was specially made to protect against both environmental allergens and food allergens. If your dog is suffering from environmental allergies, a proper diet will help strengthen the immune system, thus helping to alleviate symptoms associated with seasonal allergies. Allergy Relief contains approximately 790 calories per pound. Use our Custom Meal Builder and select “Other” to calculate the amount of food your dog needs.
Limited Ingredient Diets
Our Allergy Relief dog food contains the following ingredients:
- Green Beans
- Calcium Carbonate
Allergy Relief dog food is available either with or without grains, and the only protein we use is goat meat. Since most dogs in the United States have not been exposed to it, goat meat is a great starting point for determining if your dog is suffering from a food allergy and which protein they are allergic to.
The Goat Meat Protocol
We recommend following the Goat Meat Protocol, which can help identify allergies to common proteins or grains. We start by switching your dog to our Allergy Relief dog food, which uses goat meat for its protein.
Limiting your dog’s diet to the Allergy Relief formula will help remove other proteins from your dog’s body. Once this has happened, we can slowly introduce new proteins to the diet one by one.
After adding a new protein to the diet, we wait and see if your dog has a reaction. If there is no reaction, we can determine that the protein is safe. If a reaction occurs, we can safely determine that your dog is allergic to the newly introduced protein.
For information on the Goat Meat Protocol, contact a Deli associate at 407-505-2839.
Custom Hypoallergenic Dog Foods
If you notice an ingredient in any of our formulations, including the Allergy Relief food, that your dog cannot tolerate please contact the Deli and arrange to have a custom allergy formulation prepared for your dog. Pricing for custom orders varies by ingredients. Contact us to discuss your options.
There’s no limit to what can cause an allergic reaction in your dogs. Many random allergens found in the wild can give your dog’s immune system an issue. And dogs can be allergic to practically any ingredient found in their food.
But there are still some common allergens that will most likely be the culprit if your dog is dealing with allergies. Proteins are the most common food allergen for dogs. These proteins include chicken, beef, lamb, dairy products, and eggs.
Environmental allergens include tree pollen, dust, mold, grass, and even some weeds. Symptoms could occur either when these allergens are breathed in or when they make contact with your dog’s skin.
Whether your dog is suffering from environmental allergens, food allergies, or both, a healthy diet will boost its immune system to help them live a happy and healthy life without the constant itching and scratching.
