Hypoallergenic dog food is food that is designed to be less likely to cause an allergic reaction in dogs. Food allergies are most common in young dogs and can cause a variety of symptoms, including itching, skin problems, digestive problems, and respiratory problems.
There is no one-size-fits-all hypoallergenic dog food, as different dogs have different allergies. However, most hypoallergenic dog foods are made with a limited number of ingredients, including a novel protein source that is not commonly found in commercial dog foods. Common novel protein sources include duck, venison, fish, and kangaroo. PURELUXE has formulas with these novel protein sources like our Salmon Dog formula.
Hypoallergenic dog foods can be effective in reducing or eliminating the symptoms of food allergies in dogs. However, it is important to note that hypoallergenic dog food is not guaranteed to prevent an allergic reaction in every dog. It is also important to feed your dog a hypoallergenic dog food that is nutritionally complete and appropriate for their age and health needs.
Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing a hypoallergenic dog food:
- Look for a food that is made with a limited number of ingredients, including a novel protein source.
- Avoid foods that contain artificial ingredients, fillers, and unhealthy fats.
- Choose a food that is nutritionally complete and appropriate for your dog’s age and health needs.
If you are unsure whether your dog has a food allergy or which hypoallergenic dog food is right for them, talk to your veterinarian. Visit pureluxepetfood.com to see our options.
