Help! I Think My Dog Has Allergies

You’ve noticed your dog is rejecting his food, itching incessantly, or having major digestive issues. Logically, you think, “something must be wrong with the food I give my dog!”

There are many reasons why your dog might be presenting some of the symptoms and behaviour we described above. One of the first places that many pet owners look is into allergies. A common place to start looking into your dog’s allergic reaction is with their food or something or their environment.

Everything You Need to Know About Raw Dog Food

Everything You Need to Know About Raw Dog Food

A raw dog food diet is just what it sounds like. Your dog eats meals made of real, minimally processed, uncooked food that consists of muscle and organ meat from animals, vegetables, fruit, eggs, prebiotics, probiotics, and healthy oils.

Vitamins Play an Important Role in the Health of Your Dog

If your dog eats processed food most of the time, he only receives artificial vitamins made in labs. Natural nutrients get destroyed when food is processed, so makers of kibble and similar food have to add synthetic vitamins. Unlike natural vitamins, the artificial ones are hardly absorbed by the body, which makes them less efficient. How these vitamins exactly react with the body isn’t clear; what we do know is that synthetic vitamins can increase the risk of various health issues and even cancer.
