Does your pet suffer from any of these symptoms?

  • Itchiness
  • Hives
  • Swelling of the face, ears, lips, eyelids, or earflaps
  • Red, inflamed skin
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Sneezing
  • Itchy ears
  • Chronic ear infections
  • Itchy, runny eyes
  • Constant licking

If this sounds like your pet, it’s possible they may suffer from either food allergies or food intolerance. Dogs and cats who eat the same food for an extended period of time can be more likely to develop sensitivities or allergies.

One way you can help keep your pet’s nutrition balanced is by feeding them a rotational diet. By feeding your pet 3 or 4 different brands of food with different sources of protein in a slow rotation, you can help reduce the likelihood that your dog or cat will develop a food sensitivity or allergy. It also helps them receive a wider range of carbohydrates and nutrients. Once you’ve found 3 or 4 formulas that your pet tolerates well, you can transition their diet through each formula gradually so that every 2 or 3 months they’re eating something new. This can also help keep your pet from getting bored with their dinner!

Perhaps your vet has already helped you determine there are certain ingredients you should keep out of your pet’s diet. In that case, there are Limited Ingredient Diet choices in many brands of food, as well as formulas that cater to pets with sensitive stomachs or skin.

You may be saying to yourself, “Sure, all this sounds great, but are there really that many options? Where would I even begin to look?

Good news! You may only have to look right down the road from your house!
