Hypoallergenic Dog Food

Just like their human companions, dogs suffer from food allergies as well. So it is important to research and find the right foods to accommodate their food sensitivities. Hypoallergenic dog food is not a new concept but has seen its popularity soar over the last few years. Let's look at what hypoallergenic dog food is and if your furry companion could benefit from it.

What is hypoallergenic dog food

Hypoallergenic means less likely to cause allergy. Hypoallergenic dog food is all about reducing the potential risk of food-based allergies or intolerances. As dogs have different dietary requirements, there is no ‘one size fits all’ however the basic principle is eliminating higher-risk ingredients.

The most common food allergens in dogs are proteins, especially those from beef and chicken. Soy and wheat gluten are also common allergens and this has influenced a growing trend towards ‘grain-free’ diets. Each time a pet with an allergy or intolerance eats food containing the trigger substance, the antibodies react with the antigens, and symptoms occur. Almost any food ingredient can produce an allergy. However, meat proteins are the most common culprits.

Given that virtually anything may act as an allergy, the fact that a meal claims to be hypoallergenic does not always indicate that it is appropriate for your dog.

How do I know if my dog has allergies?

Common symptoms that could indicate that your dog has a food allergy or intolerance may include excessive scratching, dandruff, dry skin, or a dull coat. Licking paws or showing signs of irritated ears. Gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhoea, vomiting, gas or bloating. A loss of appetite and disinterest in food. Any of these issues should be accessed by your veterinarian.

Your vet may recommend an elimination diet for a period of time which will restrict some of the ingredients found in your dog’s current food. 

Novel protein diets for dogs

A novel protein is a protein source that your pet has not eaten before. Many diets contain common proteins like chicken and beef, a novel (or new) protein might include duck, wild boar, turkey, venison or salmon. The body is less likely to have a negative allergic response to an animal protein they’ve never eaten before, so novel proteins can be a good option for pet owners that are seeking hypoallergenic solutions to combat allergic reactions and digestive issues.

Naturea Naturals single protein diets for dogs

A single-protein diet for dogs is a food in which there is only one source of animal protein. Naturea Naturals recipes are single-source protein formulations, and this makes them an ideal option for dogs that need to avoid specific protein allergens. The Naturea range also includes novel meat sources like wild boar, Iberian pork and tuna.

Hypoallergenic dog treats

Now we all know how much our little companions love treats, so it's only fitting that if a dog is on a specific hypoallergenic diet, hypoallergenic dog treats accompany them. Your dog will thank you for it! Naturea Semi-Moist treats for dogs are single-source protein, grain-free and 100 percent natural, making them an excellent choice for pets that suffer from food intolerances.

Our gourmet sausages for dogs are limited in ingredients and single-source protein. A complete and balanced diet, Tribal dog rolls can be fed as a main meal or diced and used as a soft and meaty training treat. Dogs love it!

What foods to avoid for dogs with allergies?

Your veterinarian will be able to guide you through an elimination diet if this is deemed the best option for finding the source of your dog's food allergy or intolerance. Avoiding foods that contain common proteins, such as chicken and beef, may be advised, and switching to a diet that excludes other common allergens like soy, wheat, and peas could also help to improve the digestive health of your dog.

Does hypoallergenic dog food help with coats?

Yes, if your dog has an allergy or intolerance to a protein or ingredient in its current diet, then switching to a hypoallergenic dog food could help to improve its overall skin and coat condition. Any severe skin issues should be referred to your vet for treatment and advice.

Are there options for hypoallergenic puppy food?

If your veterinarian has recommended a hypoallergenic diet for your young puppy, it's important to select a diet that has been developed specifically for puppies to ensure it will meet the needs of a growing dog. Puppy diets are formulated with extra protein and nutrients to help support the growth and development of young dogs.

Is hypoallergenic dog food the same as grain free?

Grain-free food is exactly that: grain-free. However, not all grain-free dog foods are hypoallergenic (frequently containing beef and poultry), and not all hypoallergenic dog foods are grain-free.

Why is chicken fat used in some hypoallergenic dog food?

Chicken fat is a highly digestible animal fat source and has high levels of linoleic (Omega-6) acid. Chicken fat not only provides a natural source of Omega fatty acids but also makes food taste great.

If you’re worried that your pet could have an allergic reaction to chicken fat, you should know that food allergies are an immune response to protein. A dog with a true chicken protein allergy will usually react to the protein in the chicken. Because pure chicken fat contains no protein, it should not trigger the allergic reaction that chicken meat (or chicken meal) would in a pet who is allergic to chicken. We recommend consulting with your veterinarian for more information.
