Does my dog or cat have a food allergy?

Unfortunately, there are no blood tests or other tests to find out if your dog or cat has developed a food allergy, instead you have to go by the symptoms. Allergy in dogs manifests itself as a skin disease, the most common symptom in dogs that develop allergies is itching in areas such as the skin. face, ears and groin, also recurrent ear infections, problems with the stomach and intestines, as well as stomach and intestinal problems can be caused by allergies.

Also in cats, food allergy manifests itself as skin problems, the most common symptom for cats with food allergy is itching and other skin conditions, usually localized on the cat’s head or neck. Also, problems such as vomiting, diarrhea and panting can occur separately or together with itching and other skin conditions in cats with food allergies.

Elimination diet – try a different feed

If you suspect that your dog or cat has developed a food allergy, after ruling out other causes of the problem such as parasites or skin infections, you can try an elimination diet in consultation with a vet.

In an elimination diet for dogs, the dog is fed a special diet for about two months. Then the dog is allowed to eat its normal diet again, if the dog’s symptoms got better while it was on the special diet, and then worse again on its normal diet, then it can be concluded that the dog was allergic to something in its normal diet.

Majstor’s dog food normally contains only one animal ingredient, which makes it suitable for use as an exclusion diet because you can exclude other animal ingredients that your dog normally eats. Test this in consultation with your vet.

Even in the case of a suspected food allergy in cats, an elimination diet can be tested where the cat is only allowed to eat protein and carbohydrate sources for a period of time that it has not previously consumed through its normal diet.
