How to Cater to Dogs with Itchy Skin

When your dog is suffering from inflamed or itchy skin, you can take a few steps to treat it and get them back to their happy, healthy self. Try these steps:

Try an elimination diet and track the foods that make their skin itch

When you need to identify allergies, an elimination diet is often the best option. By running through the list of common dog food allergies and systematically eliminating each one from their diet, you can pinpoint the intolerances and avoid those foods in the future.

Choose food with a novel protein to avoid beef, chicken, pork and diary

Opting for a new source of protein, such as insects, offers the same nutritional value as traditional meat alternatives whilst being unknown to your dog’s immune system, dramatically decreasing the likelihood of an allergic reaction. It is also far kinder to the environment.

Choose a grain-free food to avoid wheat and other grains

Wheat is one of the leading food allergies in dogs, though many kibble brands continue to use it as a source of energy. Instead, go for our grain-free alternative. It has carbohydrates from potato and sweet potato with the added benefit of additional vitamins A, B6 and C and iron and magnesium.

Avoid additional food like treats, dental chews and especially table leftovers

Additional food is tough to monitor. When you give your dog scraps from the table, they can react to any number of ingredients we put in our meals. Our food reduces the build-up of plaque and tartar and it includes all the nutrients your dog requires, eliminating the need for dental chews or additional treats. Plus, it tastes delicious.

See a vet for allergy testing and dietary advice

The best way to identify and cater to allergies and intolerances is to see a vet. They will run comprehensive tests and recommend diet changes. Alternatively, if they discover another underlying condition causing the sensitive, itchy skin, they can treat it.

Prompt delivery, good communication before the delivery, easy to access my account and change order if necessary. Feels good to feed the dogs on insect protein and encourage this industry. Can we have human food next? The dogs are thriving on it, full of energy, lovely glossy coats.

What are the most common food allergies affecting dogs?

Dogs are often allergic to everyday food sources, such as beef, pork, chicken, wheat, grain, dairy, eggs and soy. Many dog kibble recipes include these ingredients, and choosing a food for dogs with sensitive skin can cater to these allergies.

Apart from food, what causes allergies and itchy skin in dogs?

Food is one of the least common allergies that affect dogs. Fleas and environmental allergies to things like dust and pollen are more prevalent. 

How do food allergies and food intolerances differ?

Food allergies are immune system reactions to particular foods and subsequently have more severe life-threatening symptoms. Alternatively, intolerances are digestive reactions with milder symptoms.

How are the symptoms of dog food allergy and intolerance different?

Intolerances typically produce digestive issues, including gas, bloating, nausea, diarrhoea and vomiting. An allergy usually has symptoms of red skin rashes, itching, licking, hives, paw biting and occasionally digestive problems like nausea and vomiting.
