Food Allergies and Intolerances Can Weaken Immunity In Pets

Many pets have food sensitivities and allergies and owners may not know. In some cases, a pet may have overt signs such as vomiting or digestive problems but most of the time, the signs may seem unrelated. For example, skin problems such as scratching and itching, chewing, licking and hair loss (once fleas and mites are ruled out) are often due to food allergies. Other examples: chronic UTIs, upper respiratory infections, asthma and even seizures can be triggered by food allergies. If your pet is getting one infection after another or has health concerns that come and go, take a look at your pet’s diet. Just as you are what you eat, the same applies to your pet.
