A question from one of our website visitors:
“I have a dog who is constantly licking his paws. I heard that this might be caused by a food allergy. What in dog food would most likely cause this? What is the best kind of food that I should give him instead?”
The best food is one that he is not allergic to.
I don’t mean to sound silly, but an allergy could be caused by ANYTHING. The fact that he is licking his paws indicates to me that it is more likely to be a contact allergy, i.e. something he walks on that his or her paws come in contact with.This is known as an environmental allergy. But don’t guess you need to see your Vetrinary to find out what type of allergy your dog has.This is of primary importance for your dog’s well being. Also be aware changing your dog’s food is a big deal. For more information on this please take a look at the free guide on the home page we put together to help you help your dog.
