Just like humans, dogs can have allergies too. That’s why at Rick’s Dog Deli, we make sure we cater to any specific dietary needs a dog may have. Our Rick’s Dog Deli food is made with USDA inspected ingredients. It’s food for dogs but fit for humans. The food is prepared in our kitchen and then frozen to maintain freshness. If your dog suffers from allergies, they will appreciate the fact that our products are free from all the things that cause them discomfort.
What Is a Grain Allergy?
A grain allergy is when a dog is allergic to things like wheat, oats, rice, barley, corn, quinoa, and even some beans. It’s difficult to find commercial kibble without one of these ingredients so as a dog owner you have to make sure to find ‘grain free’ dog food. Symptoms associated with a grain allergy are skin inflammation, repeated scratching and itching, skin or ear infections, inflamed paw pads, and constant licking of the paws. At Rick’s Dog Deli (unless you have a diagnosed allergy from a vet) we recommend trying our regular allergy diet food before our grain free version. We have found that most owners who believe their dog has a grain allergy find out that it was another ingredient in their commercial food and not actually the grain. When you’re looking for the best dog food for dogs with allergies, it’s best to consult your veterinarian on what ingredients your pup needs to avoid. You can also reach out to Rick’s Dog Deli and we can come up with a formula that is perfect for your dog.
Custom Grain Free Dog Food
Customizing your dog’s food has the added benefit of not only avoiding any potential allergens, but you can put whatever wholesome ingredients you’d like in it. For example, if your dog prefers beef over fish, we can cater to that. If at any time you see an ingredient in our foods that you wish to avoid, we will happily talk you through some options. No two dogs are the same and they all deserve the best.
We use goat meat in our allergy diets since most dogs in the United States have not been exposed to it and most likely will not have an intolerance to it. Our Allergy Relief Formulation is available with and without grains. 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 Grain-Free has approximately 463 calories per pound. We recommend following the Goat Meat Protocol which can help identify allergies to common proteins or grains. For information on the Goat Meat Protocol contact a Deli associate (call or text) 407-505-2839 or visit the “information for vets page” on our website If you notice an ingredient in these formulations that your dog is allergic to please contact the deli (call or text) 407-505-2839 to have a custom allergy formulation prepared for your dog. Pricing for custom orders varies by ingredients.
