Satisfying the Itch

By Stephanie Minturn


You’ve heard it before, Raw Diets can help eliminate those pesky allergies that haunt our pets! But why? How can we eliminate this issue with something as simple as a diet change? Well, allow me to explain.

When your pet is itching and digging at their skin, your first instinct is to treat the symptoms of allergies to relieve your pet. But this will only mask their symptoms rather than treat the underlying cause, leaving you to pay hundreds of dollars in Vet bills and prescription medications.

Symptoms of dog allergies include:

  • Itchy, red, moist or scabbed skin Increased scratching
  • Itchy, runny eyes
  • Itchy back or base of tail (most commonly flea allergy)
  • Itchy ears and ear infections
  • Sneezing
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Snoring caused by an inflamed throat
  • Paw chewing/swollen paws
  • Constant licking

These symptoms can lead to some very serious health problems, including infections and a variety of intestinal disorders. If your pet is suffering from any of these symptoms, the answer could be in their food. Pet allergies became more common as the popularity of “convenient” grain based diets began to consume popularity. Luckily, more and more folks are catching on to this trend and are returning to Raw diets to rescue their pets from this potential harm.

Food allergies can arise when a protein is misidentified as an invader in common pet foods and triggers an immune response in the body. This accounts for the inflammatory symptoms that plagues your dogs and is the body’s way to protect itself from the invader. A Raw diet mimics your dog’s natural diet, normalizing and strengthening his digestion and immune system naturally. Containing a good balance of essential fatty acids, active enzymes and other immune-normalizing and strengthening nutrients, the Raw diet reduces stress on the body, while allowing a natural reduction of inflammatory conditions and a lower risk of infection.

Even if you’re sure that your dog’s allergies arise from pollens and other environmental allergies, a Raw diet is the answer to your issues as well! A Raw diet is so easy on the dog’s digestive system and thanks to its immune system strengthening properties, it allows your dog to handle the load of environmental allergies much easier. Many times, allergic responses are caused by an extreme overload to all of these allergies and a weakened immune system.

A natural, Raw diet takes your dog back to his roots. Back when allergies were obsolete. No more cortisone shots, no more prescriptions, no more antibiotics. Just a healthy and vibrant pup, thriving without the constant nagging of allergy symptoms!
