Dog Information - Recipes for Dogs with Allergies

Not only do dog allergies refer to our allergies to dog hair and dander, but also to dog's allergies to things in their environment, such as chemicals, pollution and food. Dog allergies can manifest themselves in skin problems, like itching and hair loss, and in more advanced cases, loose bowel movements and vomiting.

Dogs are not always born with allergies, and these can manifest themselves over time and continued exposure. Your dog could find itself allergic to food that he has previously had no trouble with. If you suspect that your dog's symptoms may be caused by allergies, it is best to visit your vet for a check up and dog information on how to treat them.

We can avoid the symptoms, and possibly even prevent the allergies from manifesting in the first place, we must be aware of what ingredients are going into our pet's food. Grains like corn and wheat are unnecessary for dogs, and can cause allergies. Find good dog information on possible causes, then eliminate them one by one from your dog's diet. A good organic dog food could be the answer to these allergy problems, as it contains no chemicals that could be causing allergies and other health issues.

The best way to feed a pet, and especially one with allergies is to make your own dog food. Many websites and books contain dog information on dog food recipes and home made dog food. A good home made food should contain a meat protein, vegetables, a starch, like potatoes and bone meal for minerals.

Here's one dog food recipe that your pooch is sure to love. Take one pound of turkey meat and sautee in olive oil. Then, add another pound of cooked, mixed vegetables. Add potatoes (1/2 to 1 cup) and bone meal or a dog vitamin supplement.

When fed right, you will soon notice improvements in your dogs' coat and eyes, and even his moods. These are the most obvious benefits of an organic diet, or a home made one without chemicals and substandard probucts. However the overall benefits to his health and well-being outweigh even these.

Dog allergies sometimes manifest themselves over time, triggered by components in dog food, and environmental factor. By feeding your dog organic dog food and preparing home made dog food recipes, you can avoid some of the possible allergy triggers, which include grains, and chemicals used in commercial dog food preparation. Remember to consult with your veterinarian for dog information on allergies and nutrition
