What Are Dog Food Allergy Symptoms?

The most common dog food allergy symptoms are:

  • constant itching and scratching of the skin
  • pawing at the mouth area
  • swollen mouth
  • licking at paws constantly
  • hot spots
  • diarrhea
  • gas
  • You may want to try feeding homemade dog food — where you will have complete control over the ingredients your dog gets. If so, I recommend the Canine Nutrition Guide to help ensure you provide adequate nutrition.
  • Change to a premium or super-premium dog food — sometimes it is just the inferior ingredients and a lot of grains used in many commercial dog foods that cause the allergy or intolerance. See my article on how to read your dog food ingredients label to figure out if your current dog food is any good.
  • If you are already feeding a good quality dog food, you may want to try adding digestive enzymes and probiotics to improve your dog’s gastrointestinal system.
  • beef
  • dairy
  • chicken
  • corn
  • wheat
  • soy
