Diets with Few Ingredients

Limited ingredient diets have fewer components... making it easier to identify the precise ingredient (also known as an allergen) to which your pet may be allergic.

Limited ingredient dog diets are available over-the-counter... without a vet visit.

Dog Foods That Are Hypoallergenic

Hill's Science Diet Dry Dog Food, Adult, Sensitive Stomach & Skin, Chicken Recipe, 30 Lb Bag
  • This adult dry dog food promotes digestive health while nourishing skin
  • A source of prebiotic fiber to support a balanced gut microbiome in your grown dog
  • This dog food is formulated to be highly digestible for optimal nutrient absorption & easier stool pick-up
  • Packed with vitamin E & Omega-6 fatty acids to help your grown dog get a lustrous coat and healthy skin
  • Made in the USA with global ingredients you can trust

Although hypoallergenic dog diets are often prescribed by veterinarians, pet owners can also obtain them directly online.

Many are produced from proteins that have been chemically "divided" (hydrolyzed) into their basic amino acid building components... making the original allergen almost "invisible" to your pet's immune system.

As a result, your dog is less likely to have an allergic reaction to the food.
