Food Allergy

Food Allergy

There is a growing incidence of food allergy in dogs and cats with skin and bowels-upset problems. When asked about an itching dog, many owners are quick to say that they only feed lamb and rice or grain free diet and assume that their pet now could not be allergic to food. Contrary, many pets can be truly allergic to ingredients like beef, milk, eggs, corn, wheat, soy or intolerant to certain other additives, food additives or colors and even preservatives. Regardless of the type of Adverse Reaction to Food, your pet may suffer from skin rash, hair loss, excessive scratching, diarrhea or other symptoms of gastrointestinal upsets. Surprisingly, you may need to prepare or feed your pets foods containing protein sources such as rabbit, venison, potato, kangaroo, sugar beet and yam? These foods are commonly available as new means to manage food allergies in our hospital. Diagnosis of adverse reaction to food can be difficult but we at Garfield Animal Hospital carry many Prescription Diets by Purina, Hills & Royal Canin. For more Info? Call 562-630-2082
