Best Allergy-Resistant Dog Foods

September 29, 2021

The best dog diets for allergies come in one of two basic varieties:

Diets with few ingredients

Dog foods that are hypoallergenic

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

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.
