Does your dog have a food allergy?
Many dogs are allergic to beef, chicken, fish, lamb and pork. Why? It can be many things, it can just be in their genetics. The tell-tale signs are excessive licking or itching, skin infections and bald patches. Knowing exactly what your dog is allergic too is often complicated, also for your vet. Some will recommend an allergy test, others may choose for an elimination diet. By means of a food trial: feeding your dog a novel (i.e. one) source of protein and carbohydrate for 12 weeks.
