STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • If your dog is itchy year-round vs. seasonally and also has chronic or intermittent digestive issues, there may be a food intolerance behind her “sensitive stomach”
  • Food sensitivities in dogs may be the result of an abundance of foreign contaminants found in the vast majority of processed pet food on the market
  • If you suspect your dog is sensitive to something in his diet, it’s important to determine the specific food(s) he’s reacting to
  • Once the problem food(s) have been identified, a 2-to-3-month novel diet should be introduced; for most dogs and especially those with super-sensitive stomachs, it’s best to avoid all processed pet food in favor of a homemade diet
  • Because each case of food intolerance is unique, it can be extremely beneficial to work with an integrative or holistic veterinarian who can design a custom formulated healing protocol for your pet
