Hypoallergenic dog food
Hypoallergenic food can support dogs with food hypersensitivity.
Allergy or intolerance
Food hypersensitivity is a collective term for an abnormal reaction to ingredients in the dog food. This can manifest itself and become a food allergy or food intolerance. We speak of a food allergy if the dog's reaction to the food is accompanied by allergic symptoms, such as itching. This involves the immune system. In all other cases we speak of a food intolerance. Think of an intolerance to lactose or gluten. The immune system is not involved and the symptoms usually consist of gastrointestinal issues, such as vomiting and diarrhoea.
In both cases, a hypoallergenic diet can provide support. These foods often contain 1 unknown protein source, or a hydrolysed protein source, meaning your dog's body will react less quickly to this food. The food is also often grain-free.
Here you will find our complete assortment of hypoallergenic dog food. Always consult your vet about the most suitable food for your dog.
