In some cases, allergies to pet food ingredients can become apparent in the form of itchy skin or gastrointestinal upsets. After discussion with the veterinary team, a new feeding plan may be implemented to help investigate these issues.
A diet elimination trial may come in the form of a hypoallergenic wet or dry food, or in the form of a “novel” protein food roll. A novel protein is a protein which your pet has not been exposed to previously – like crocodile.
If you are concerned that your pet may have an allergy, make an appointment with our friendly team at the Belmont Vet Centre.
