Do you have dogs with allergies?

Allergies can effect many different breeds (although small dogs in particular seem to suffer with them). These can be seasonal – effecting the eyes and causing sneezing – or food related skin conditions. Many dogs are allergic (or sensitive) to wheat and corn.

It is important to firstly check if you pet has any of these dog food allergy symptoms – if so, then taking grains out of their diet will often work wonders.

Trying to help my dog with allergies is what prompted me to put together this website. Switching my dog to a grain free raw dog food diet has made him happier and healthier. The constant itching has gone and he now has lots more energy (not sure that is a good thing!).

But it isn’t always itching that is the problem. A reader sent me these holistic homemade dog food recipes that he used to cure his German Shepherd mix of tummy troubles.

If you think your dog is suffering then I hope the information on this site can help.

Dogs With Allergies — 2 Comments

  1. We rescued a German Shepherd/Alaskan Malamute cross 2 years ago and he was seriously underweight – Hes a huge dog (we’ve yet to meet anything bigger) but weighed just 26kg and had constant diarrhea (which the rescue centre had been unable to stop). We experimented with loads of different foods and it was a long and pretty messy process. Eventually, we found that excluding any products containing gluten worked a treat! His first “good” poos were a source of much elation in our household! He now weighs 52kg and our vet says he’s in perfect shape and condition and a real credit to us – although, he also says that there is no such thing as gluten allergy in canines! (we disagree!). We do still have the odd “bad” day – usually when he’s found something to eat in the hedge or on the beach but, on the whole, his gluten free diet has transformed his (and our) life. Finding gluten free “treats” (for training) is the hardest thing and it frustrates me no end.

    • What a great story. I am so glad you found a diet that works for him. I think more and more people are finding their dogs do best on a gluten free or wheat free diet so I am sure manufacturers will start to develop more treats eventually! In the meantime, I hope you find some of the recipes on the site useful.
