Allergies in Dogs – Organic and Natural Food Can Help
By Dan Buchman
Many dogs experience allergies. Allergies are caused for a variety of reasons. Allergies can be seasonal and triggered from grasses, weeds, and trees. Seasonal allergies are usually inhalant or flea allergies. Allergies can also be triggered from your dog's diet. In either case, having your dog tested by your vet is always recommended. If your dog is diagnosed with food allergies (which sometimes can be difficult to diagnose), there is good news, changing your dog's diet to a raw food diet or an organic natural diet may be helpful.
What are some of the signs that your dog may have allergies?
The problem has been recognized with the recent scare of the tainted pet food in the news, pet owners are more aware today than ever before. The good news is that are many replicable companies that have been researching and developing high-quality organic and natural pet foods. Most of these companies market and sell through the internet leaving the commercially produced pet foods for the grocery and retail stores. Make sure to do your homework first.
Research the pet food carefully before buying. Check out the specialty web-stores instead of the retail outlets. Look for the following type of information when conducting your research: What is the health philosophy of the company; What type of information literature do they have available about their products; What is their stated manufacturing controls; Are they endorsed by or affiliated with a veterinarian. These are all good areas to discover when researching for a good pet food company. The pet food companies all have a good story to tell about their research conducted, why their products are better or higher quality than commercially purchased pet food, make sure you feel comfortable that their claims are backed up by reliable literature. One last thought, not all organic dog food taste equal. Your dog may or may not like the taste. Make your initial purchase in a smaller quantity; make sure your dog likes the flavor before purchasing too large of a quantity.
