Your Dog and Allergies.  How much does your dog’s food play a role?

It’s always a sad scene.  Your dog is sneezing and they’re constantly scratching an itch.  You know they’re uncomfortable but how do you help them?

Although allergies in dogs is something complicated, and often needs to be addressed with a veterinarian, you can make good progress by providing your dog with the best food possible.  The reasons for this are a bit surprising though.

Think of your dog and how much time they spend indoors.  If they’re like most dogs, they spend a good deal of time there.  Then, think about how often your air conditioner or heater turns on.  If you live in a typical home, it probably turns on often, and, as a result, your dog could be suffering from dry skin.  That’s why PURELUXE makes sure to include ingredients like coconut oil, pumpkin seeds and flax seed to combat the dryness and nourish your dog’s skin with essential oils.

Then, we need to get the meat of the matter – literally.  Some forms of meat protein are more associated with food allergies than others.  That’s why PURELUXE avoids beef meal and limits the use of chicken meal as these sources of protein are some of the most common sources of food allergies in dogs.  Also, as many dogs can develop allergies from grains, PURELUXE eliminates all grains from their formulas.  This even helps those humans with celiac disease as they don’t want to be handling any food with grains.

So as you can see, food allergies in dogs can come from typical sources or sources you might not expect.  Take a look at your dog food ingredients and see if they’re up to snuff.  At PURELUXE, we’re proud to say that our pure ingredients help your dog avoid allergies.
