If you suspect a dog food allergy you might want to try an elimination diet.

If you suspect your pet has a dog food allergy then you must pinpoint the ingredients by using the elimination diet to find the ingredients your pet is allergic to.

An elimination diet is really simple but tedious. If done correctly it  will identify the foods that are causing the allergy.

If you are cooking for your pooch you are already half way there.  Check your ingredients and then start feeding each ingredient by itself and watch for any allergies reaction.

I would first pare down the recipe to the protein and see if your dog is allergic to the protein in the food.  I was using Turkey as my protein source and my dog kept throwing up.  As soon as I eliminated the turkey, he got better.  Same with pork.  He could not eat it so out it went.  He did tolerate the chicken really well so that stayed in the diet.

I also tried lamb and found it was much to greasy for my pet’s stomach so I tried to keep the protein to the lean varieties and choose the ones that were holistic or hypoallergenic which means no hormones, antibiotics or steroids injected into the meat source.

Next I fed him a vegetable to see if he tolerated it (broccoli).  Next I tested for carrots.  All was fine.

Do you get the idea?  Feed each food and watch for a reaction.

If your dog throws up, scratches, looks dull and feeling down then you’ve identified a bad food that your dog is allergic to.

Always try to find a good hypoallergenic food for your pet
