How to Cure Dog Food Allergies


If your dog has symptoms that are abnormal for a healthy dog, one of the most common causes may be dog food allergies..


Allergies in dogs  are often associated with the following symptoms


  • Hair loss 
  • Dry skin 
  • Loss of appetite 
  • Itchy skin 
  • Inflammations of the ear 
  • Hot spots that are persistent 
  • Chewing on  paws, legs or other parts of the dogs body 
  • Lack luster, dull coat 
  • Upset tummy and or diarrhea 
  • Itchy Anus 
  • Rubbing Face   


There are in fact many different kinds of allergies such as those caused by fleas, bacteria, inhalant and contact allergies. But the most common allergy is a dog food allergy and that is the one that we’ll discuss here.


Dog food allergies are indicative of a problem in the adequacy of the nutrients in your dog food. There may be a lack of essential fatty acids and a sensitivity to the dog food that you are feeding. 


Your dog may be allergic to a variety of different foods, and perhaps more than one dog food.


Some common food culprits for dog food allergies are:


  • Corn 
  • Pork 
  • Preservatives and Additives 
  • Beef 
  • Chicken 
  • Dairy 
  • Eggs 
  • Wheat and Grains 
  • Fish 
  • Whey 
  • Oats 
  • Soy 
  • And even Lamb !

If your dog shows any of the symptoms above and her food includes any of the possible suspect ingredients listed, you may want to consider a home made natural diet, eliminating the potential allergen. 


You will be certain that no hidden ingredients masked as something else are present that may be causing a dog food allergy.  You must remove the potential source of the dog food allergy for up to 30 days in order to see any possible improvement.


One of the best resources for a natural homemade diet can be found at


If you opt for a commercial dog food make sure that you understand and read carefully the ingredient list on the label Just because a dog food says that it is hypo allergenic does not mean that it is.


There are very few regulations as to what can be printed on a dog food label. Don’t trust  dog food company propaganda. Read the ingredient list carefully. For more information on this go to:,-industry-claims.html

Finally, while a dog food allergy may be the most likely culprit in your dog's symptoms, there could be more serious underlying problems.


You should always consult with your veterinarian who can help you with a proper diagnosis and with a selection of a diet that is most appropriate for your dog. Don’t just guess when yourdog's health is at stake.


My small 8 year old dog had skin allergies, suddenly became ill and no vet could isolate the cause. She died after enduring 2 weeks of pain and misery on Mother’s Day morning.  Don’t let anything happen to your  best friend. Find out what is in the dog food you use at
