  • Hypo-allergenic, natural, containing wholegrains such as brown rice or wholegrain maize
  • A simple recipe with a single protein source
  • Lower in protein and fat
  • Free from additives
  • Highly digestible (less waste)

More tips!

  • Check with your vet to rule out other possible causes.
  • Undergo an elimination diet to rule out certain ingredients
  • Keep to the same diet for around 12 weeks unless we advise otherwise.
  • Avoid beef, wheat and dairy – 70+% of food intolerance in dogs.
  • Look for novel ingredients- ones your dog hasn’t eaten before.
  • Feed sparingly, overfeeding can cause upset tummies.
  • Avoid treats, dental chews and table scraps – vegetables are OK.
  • Every dog is an individual,  a food may suit one dog but not another.
