Did y’all know that food allergies are the third most common allergy in dogs and cats? Irritated itchy skin is a common symptom in dogs, as well as cats. Y’all know we have had our share of run-ins with Sallie and her severe allergies. Sallie’s allergies appear in the form of severe itching, which turns into hotspots and sores. This in turn leads to infections and requires antibiotics. It is an endless cycle!
We know Sallie has all kinds of allergies and has always been treated for allergies, but now we are starting to think she is allergic to something in her food also! This led me to start researching common food allergies and symptoms in pets. While searching, I came across this infographic from Petco! It suggest the most common food allergies and the symptoms to watch for. If you have an itchy allergic pet that is having skin issues, ear problems, etc. it’s definitely worth looking into.
