Food allergies

Dogs and cats can have food allergies just like people, but their reactions may be different. Other pets may respond by chewing, scratching or rubbing, resulting in secondary infections from bacteria, yeast, or fungus. Food allergies may also result in hair loss. Food allergies in some pets can cause vomiting and diarrhea.

Share what you know regarding diet, activity, medical history and environment with your veterinarian.

Your veterinarian may recommend a strict dietary protocol to help determine which foods your pet is allergic to. It may take several weeks and careful attention to detail, but it's just as important as any prescribed medication.
