Do you know that a food allergy may be what’s causing your pets skin problem. To find out what food or ingredients is the culprit, you need to commit to the diet trial using a hypoallergenic food.
Switching your dog`s food to another brand of pet food does not work because many pet foods include the same ingredients. Besides, it may not be your dog`s food that’s causing the problem. It could be anything – like table scraps, treats.
That’s why you need to follow the diet exclusively and make sure all the family members and friends know he’s following a special diet. The trial won’t work if the diets not followed as directed, which, means your dog will be uncomfortable for an even longer time.
Please don’t get discouraged. Diet Trials take time and work. You’ll most likely have to change a lot of your routines. For example you may want to keep your dog out the kitchen so he doesn’t eat any dropped food. If you normally hid pills in his food, you’ll need to hide them only in the prescribed diet now. It may take six to eight weeks before you see any improvement in your dog’s skin, but his welfare is well worth the wait.
