Dog food allergies can lead to a host of dog allergy symptoms which are created from a dog food intolerance.
And food intolerance symptoms can resemble other allergies, so you will have to look at the whole scope of possibilities.
Dog allergy symptoms can be a very simple way to look for clues as to what is going on with the health of your dog.
However, it may be difficult to tell if your dog is suffering from dog food allergies or some other type of allergy just based on physical signs.
One of the main dog allergy symptoms is itchy skin and you will have
to rule out if it's from a dog food intolerance or from being allergic
to say its shampoo.
The symptoms of dog food allergies can come and go. And dog allergy symptoms can also pop up overnight.
Sometimes, it's because an ingredient in your dog's food has changed or your dog has finally developed food intolerance symptoms to its pet food.
Dog allergy symptoms are sometimes caused by chemicals such as preservatives and pesticides in the food rather than the food itself.
It is best to avoid all chemicals!
One way to find the source of dog allergy symptoms or food intolerance symptoms is to try an elimination diet.
This involves removing all of the foods your dog normally eats for a period of time - this allows the dog allergy symptoms to go away.
Then you can start to reintroduce the possible dog food intolerance foods one at a time until previous dog allergy symptoms reappear.
This way you'll really know if your dog is suffering from food intolerance symptoms and from what food source.
