Guide to Hypoallergenic Dog Food•
Posted on September 27 2018
'You are what you eat' is an adage that is as relevant to dogs as it is to humans. So, if you want your pet to thrive, feeding them high quality food is the best action you can take as an owner. When it comes to caring for man’s best friend, we need to make sure we’re giving him a good quality food that contains all the nutrients they need to live a happy, healthy life. It doesn’t matter if your dogs are show dogs, working dogs or pets - first and foremost, they deserve the best at mealtimes. We strongly believe different dogs have different needs and one size doesn’t fit all. Your dogs might have sensitive skin, digestion problems or another health condition that’s aggravated by other brands of dog food. That’s why we chose to develop our five different ranges: 80/20, Sensitive, Rice and Wet. We even have a fully certified Organic option in the wet food.
We want to help your dog’s look and feel great on the inside as well as on the outside. Allergic reactions in dogs can take many forms, from a minor skin irritation to gastric distress and vomiting. The mixture of nutritional ingredients we use means that we have more of a chance of avoiding common foods that are more likely to cause an allergic reaction in your dog. It can be difficult to ascertain exactly what your dog is allergic to if it has a skin irritation or something similar, but by reducing the chance of it being the food, you reduce the chance of the reaction.
What is Hypoallergenic Dog Food?
Designed for dogs who cannot tolerate normal dog food, it is made with no artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives - as all of these can be harmful for their health. It is also completely free from allergens which can affect their skin, coat and stomach. There are no specific ingredients that make a food hypoallergenic - however, dry foods should be high in natural sources of protein, whether meat or fish, for a tasty dish!
