Let me start out by saying that dogs can potentially be allergic to many different things they eat. So I’m not going to list off all the different foods that can potentially make your dog itch (or get an upset tummy).
Food Allergies can be a very frustrating problem for your dog, you and your Veterinarian. They are a frustrating problem for a number of reasons:
1. Food Allergies can cause serious itchiness.
2. Food Allergies can flare up at any time in your dog’s life. Food allergies can develop after a dog has been eating a particular food for a long time.
3. Food Allergies can present like numerous other dermatological problems.
4. Food Allergies can occur at the same time as other allergies. And, to make matters worse, concurrent allergies make each other worse.
Therefore, as you may guess, it takes time and expertise to get to the bottom of why your dog is itchy. Numerous visits to the Vet, medications and diet changes are all likely to be needed.Erin Coomer - Veterinarian
