We’re often asked if our recipes are hypoallergenic. It’s a term that’s quickly become used (or at least recognised) by most pet parents, but properly understood by very few. So if you’re thinking “yep, that’s me” or ‘WTF is hypoallergenic” you’re in the right place. Today we’re giving you the low down on hypoallergenic dog food. We’ll explore what hypoallergenic actually means in regards to dog food, if food allergies are common and how to make the right food choices for your dog. Before we get into the nitty-gritty we want to clear two things up. Firstly the difference between an intolerance and an allergy, as the two are very much separate terms but often (and wrongly) used interchangeably.
An allergy is normally in response to a protein, where the protein triggers an immune system reaction. The reaction can vary in severity from minor itching to more severe, and even life-threatening reactions. Thankfully these are very rare and dogs are much more likely to suffer from intolerances. An intolerance is where something doesn’t quite agree with their digestive systems, but there isn’t an immune system response e.g. lactose. For dogs with allergies or intolerances, feeding a hypoallergenic diet can be helpful BUT only if that diet avoids your dogs’ specific allergen, as hypoallergenic recipes differ. For example, if your dog is sensitive to beef, choosing a “hypoallergenic recipe” with beef as the main protein source is probably not a good idea.
