Dog Allergies In 5 Minutes.

Dog Allergies in 5 minutes.

Allergies in dogs, like in people, are a relatively novel concept. There enough allergy symptoms to make you very confused. However, you should take the time to understand allergies.

To be honest, allergies are very rare. Most ‘’allergies’’ are just intolerances. When one is allergic to nuts, the consumption of nuts can be fatal. This is (thankfully) very rare, also with pets.

Most ‘’allergies’’ are just food intolerances.

Common Symptoms:

  • Itchy, flakey skin. Recurring sore spots.
  • Obsessive paw biting and licking.
  • Very soft, smelly poos.
  • Anal gland issues.
  • Ear and eye conditions.
  • Poor flakey coat, loss of hair.

You have probably tried a range of things, maybe after a few vet visits where the diagnosis has been varied. Pollen, sand, grass, colitis…

You’re probably tired of spending time and money on it. Even ‘’hypoallergenic’’ foods do not work.

Any condition ending with ‘’itis’’ is mainly an irritation.

Guess what commonly causes irritation? Sugar.

A high amount of carbohydrates in your dog’s food converts into sugar, causing inflammation and fuelling all these conditions.

Commercial foods typically cook meat at high temperatures, diminishing its nutritional value and killing any Omega-3 fatty acids (anti-inflammatory).

The solution to these problems isn’t to endlessly prescribe the dog treatments. Is to solve the problem with food first.
