Hypoallergenic dog treats for dogs with a food intolerance
Nutriment’s absolute main priority is animal health and happiness. Our in-house canine nutritionists are dedicated to formulating recipes which support your dog’s nutrition to enable them to live long and active lives.
Just like humans, dogs can suffer from allergies, with symptoms being uncomfortable, irritable, and develop into conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, depression, flaky skin, and weight loss, to name a few. Fortunately, Nutriment has a wide variety of hypoallergenic dog treats specifically formulated for dogs with food sensitivities. This means that you can safely feed them to dogs with allergies or intolerances.
Nutriment only uses high-quality, biologically appropriate ingredients with simple processes when creating raw, hypoallergenic dog treats. Designed for all sizes, ages, and breeds, our hypoallergenic dog treats are a great way to support your dog’s health and nutrition whilst minimising the risk of allergic reactions.
Understanding what hypoallergenic means
The common term ‘hypoallergenic’ refers to a product being much less likely to cause or exacerbate allergic symptoms. Some common allergic reactions include rash, skin itchiness, flaky dry skin, coughing, sneezing, wheezing, fur loss, and digestive issues. All of these symptoms can be highly uncomfortable for your dog.
Food allergies are fairly common for our canine friends. Dogs can be allergic to certain grains, food additives, preservatives, dyes, flavourings, and some types of meat. For example, beef and chicken intolerances are prevalent, whereas lamb and rabbit are two types of meat that dogs with allergies might tolerate better than chicken or beef. Other food items include dairy products and nuts.
Be aware that sometimes, food labels refer to ‘novel’ proteins as being hypoallergenic. This simply means that dogs usually have not eaten it before and therefore have not developed common intolerances.
Can dogs with allergies eat ‘regular’ dog treats?
If your dog is prone to allergic reactions, it’s best to avoid ‘regular’ dog treats that contain the aforementioned ingredients, as they are more likely to irritate those allergies. Nutriment provides some great hypoallergenic dog treat alternatives which will support your dog’s digestive and oral health whilst providing great mental stimulation.
The benefits of hypoallergenic dog treats
There are several benefits to hypoallergenic dog treats. First and foremost, it is a great alternative to processed dog treats for dogs with a food allergy because they relieve your dog of uncomfortable symptoms, such as itchiness and an upset stomach. These symptoms can decrease your dog’s happiness and overall well-being, however, choosing hypoallergenic dog treats will help:
Improve the quality of life
To ensure the comfort of your pet, make sure you are aware of common behaviours that might indicate an allergy. These may include excessive scratching in one location, chewing legs or paws, developing sores, raised bumps, rashes, loss of fur, runny eyes or noses, loss of energy, or behavioural changes. Keeping your dog on a hypoallergenic raw diet, including raw hypoallergenic dog treats, can improve your pet's comfort and overall quality of life.
Support digestive health
Just like humans, your dog can develop gastrointestinal symptoms like vomiting, upset stomach, loss of weight, belching, passing gas, loose or constipated stools, and stomach pain due to allergies. A natural-based diet with raw, hypoallergenic dog food and treats can relieve many of these symptoms. So, remember always to avoid additives and known irritants if your dog suffers from allergies and food intolerances.
Boost energy and stamina
Avoiding ingredients, you know your dog may have an intolerance or allergy to, can aid in his or her digestive process. When your dog is fed hypoallergenic ingredients, the body digests them much more easily and effectively, leading to an increase in energy and stamina levels. This results in healthy activity levels, which encourages strong bones and muscles.
Help prevent further serious health issues
Dogs with untreated allergies often develop some serious health issues later in life. Sinus symptoms can turn into deeper lung infections like pneumonia, and skin irritations can cause open sores that can get infected. The use of hypoallergenic dog treats can help to relieve and even prevent serious allergic reactions and the development of more intense physical symptoms. The more natural, raw ingredients your dog consumes, free from allergy-causing additives, the less their allergic symptoms will affect their health.
What types of hypoallergenic treats are available?
With choices like sprats, turkey, lamb, and chicken, you can get delicious hypoallergenic dog treats for all large and small dogs. You can even explore a variety of chew sticks and super nutritious treats with glucosamine, which is great for strengthening an older dog's tender bones, joints, teeth, and muscles. Among our range of award-winning snacks, you will definitely find something for your dog to enjoy.
So, explore our range of hypoallergenic treats at Nutriment and find your dog’s new favourite flavours. Our dog treats are a favourite among dogs as well as dog owners.
