Allergies reduce the quality of life significantly! Unfortunately, allergies cannot be cured. Therefore, it is very important to identify the cause of the allergy properly and avoid it. What are the main causes of allergies in dogs? Let’s find out the types of dog allergy snacks together.
Causes and Symptoms of Dog Allergies
causes of dog allergies
There are many different causes of allergies in dogs. Food (fruit, meat, fish, grains, etc.), pollen, dust, mites, etc. are the causes. Among them, protein in meat or fish is a representative cause of allergy.
Therefore, if you suspect an allergy to your dog, you need to limit the type of food you feed and find out what is causing the allergy.
dog allergy symptoms
Dog allergy symptoms are mainly skin and digestive symptoms. Increased tear production, tear marks, skin redness, skin itching (chewing or scratching the skin), diarrhoea, vomiting and gas are typical.
Although less common, acute allergic symptoms such as anaphylaxis can lead to serious symptoms such as facial swelling, difficulty breathing, and shock.
3 Types of Dog Allergy Snacks
1. Hydrolyzed Snacks
As explained earlier, the representative cause of dog allergy is the protein in meat and fish. The process of breaking this protein into very small pieces is called hydrolysis. The size of the protein is so small that the body cannot recognize it, and an allergic reaction does not occur.
However, depending on the dog, an allergic reaction can occur even after hydrolysis. As such, hydrolysis products are not a perfect way to avoid allergic reactions. It is recommended to find the root cause of an allergy as much as possible and avoid it.
2. One protein snack or LID
A single protein snack that uses only one type of meat or fish is called a single protein snack. LID (Limited Ingredient Diet) means that the number of proteins is limited, and it means a product that uses only one or two proteins.
As these products are low in protein, they can help you find the cause of an allergy or avoid an allergic reaction.
3. Insect Protein Snacks
There are also dog treats that use insect proteins such as mealworms and beets. Allergic reactions mostly occur from commonly encountered protein sources, but it is known that insect proteins are very unlikely to cause allergies in dogs because they are new proteins.
