What food should I feed my dog with allergies?
The best dog food for allergies would have to be low-glycemic, single-ingredient diets, or a raw dog food diet.
When beginning an elimination diet with your dog, we typically recommend our Bold by Nature Pure Pork or Pure Duck formulas, as they only contain meat, bone, and organ. This way you’re starting with a simple one-protein blend that contains nothing but a few nutritious ingredients.
Once you’ve tested one of the proteins and everything is going swimmingly with your dog, you can move on to a similar formula, only this time with vegetables. For example, if you’ve been feeding our Pure Duck, you can try feeding Mega Duck for dogs after the elimination period to see if your dog has any sensitivities to kelp or veggies.
Both of our formulas are low glycemic, but our Select formula does not contain any vegetables. This being said, our Select formula contains beef tripe, so if your dog has a beef allergy, it is best to avoid this option.
Again, the best dog food for allergies contains a limited ingredient, all-natural diet. Each raw recipe is formulated as nature intended, but the benefits of raw dog food go beyond just the essential nutrients they contain.
