The right food for allergy-prone pets

Scratching an itch? A better diet could help

Scratching an itch? A better diet could help

Human dietary requirements are complex, as too are food allergies. The same can be said for pets with both dogs and cats being affected.

And it’s estimated that 10% of all allergies in dogs are relating to food.

Allergies and intolerances are different things – one causing itching and the other, the inability to keep food down resulting in diarrhoea or vomiting. This can be an extremely anxious period for pet owners while they try and ascertain the cause.

While elimination diets have become commonplace, many owners find great benefits from feeding foods targeted specifically to the problem – be this dry skin or excessive ear infections. But it is vital to recommend the right foods. On the next page, you’ll find some products to help your customers get the best products to suit sensitive-tummied terriers and allergy-prone poodles.

Benyfit Natural – Meat Feast

A recent convert to Benyfit Natural, Sara Mason whose dog Harry suffered from yeast intolerance and was cured completely by switching to the Meat Feast recipe said, “I was beside myself with worry to see Harry with such sore skin from excessive scratching. Nothing I tried seemed to cure the problem until I found out about Benyfit Natural’s Meat Feast. I am very happy with the food Harry is now on, he is full of life and it's been a great help with his skin. “

 

Expert quote:

Dave Latham, the England Retriever Team Captain and his wife Stefanie who is also an international gundog competitor.

“We have been breeding and training Labradors for over 25 years and no food we have ever fed has given us so much benefit for our dogs than Sneyd's Elite Fish & Potato. It is fantastic for bringing up young dogs , even the ones with the most sensitive stomachs can deal with Fish & Potato like no other food we had so far. They have shiny coats, firm stools and lots of our customers and breeder colleagues are feeding their kennel now on Fish & Potato and have had the same experience we did.”
