I think my pet has food allergies! I need a brilliant solution!

This is a basic description of popular dog foods based on cost and marketed as advisable for dogs with food allergies. At the cheaper end of the market Chicken Soup dog food has a higher level of fruit and vegetable in their recipe including potatoes, carrots, peas, apples, tomatoes, blueberries, cranberries and spinach.

Avoderm is manufactured from avocados to promote healthy, glowing, beautiful skin and coat. Vegetarian options are also available.

Eagle Pack offers a Holistic selection that costs a little bit more, but it is comprised of antioxidants, probiotics, prebiotics, and protein rich recipes. There are no hormones in the chicken and the fruit and vegetables are fit for human consumption.

High protein, whole grains, veggies and fruit constitute the ingredients of the blue dog food or the Blue Buffalo dog food, which is based on what humans eat. Dogs are less likely to be allergic since these foods contain unusual ingredients such as sweet potato and brown rice, and dogs have not developed sensitivities to these foods yet. These food varieties are available in the market as dry and canned; however some of their products were recalled from the market in 2007.

In the same way, Pinnacle's Canine Holistic Allergen-Free Formulas for dogs use unusual foods in recipes such as trout and oats to which dogs are less likely to be intolerant. Nature Recipe dog food is beef, wheat and corn free as these are common allergy-promoting foodstuffs. Inova dog food manufacturers make EVO, a high protein diet with veggies and raw fruit.

Life's Abundance dog food does not contain by-products, corn or wheat, chemical preservatives, artificial colors or flavors. Typical ingredients include chicken meal, fish meal, carrots, apples, spinach, celery, alfalfa meal, ground brown rice, antioxidants, live probiotics and chelated minerals.

At the top end of the market the Abady dog food company make frozen raw diets for dogs containing fewer "nasties" such as soybeans, beet pulp etc. They make dry and canned formulas with quite a hefty price tag.

IVD dog food ,known at present as Royal Canin, manufacture recipes which are breed specific, and special recipes like Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Canine Hypoallergenic HP 19 that is a lactose and wheat gluten-free recipe.

Simply using these recipes might solve the problem quickly, but if you think your dog has food allergies, it is best to find the culprit and remove it.

Your veterinarian can guide you if needed, and if your dog is showing signs of food allergies, it is best to have him looked at by a professional.
