Are there alternatives to commercial dog food?

Food Allergies

Yes, dogs do get food allergies. They can also be allergic to pollen, plants, fleas, and food. Many experts believe that only five to ten percent of the allergies that dogs get are actually caused by foods.

If your dog has inflamed skin around his feet, face, ears, armpits, or groin area, that may be a sign of a food allergy. Occasionally, a dog vomits as a reaction to a food allergy.

If you think your dog has a food allergy, your veterinarian can help you determine what the source is. You'll usually have to go through a process of elimination to see what foods, if any your dog is allergic to.
