Do you have a dog that is always going to the vet clinic for recurring ear infections?

Maybe your dog or cat responds to the medications but as soon as you stop the meds, the itching and scratching comes right back?

Have you ever wondered if your pet’s itchy skin may be related to the food they’re eating?

Hot spots, ear infections, and itchy, irritated skin are some of the most common problems that dogs and even cats experience throughout their life. More and more pets are becoming itchier at an earlier age. There are even studies that show that dogs are more likely to develop allergies if the mother was fed a kibble diet while pregnant.

Nutrition can either quell or fuel inflammation.

You must know how to read a pet food label to make sure you’re not adding ingredients that are making the inflammation worse in your pet’s body.

Ideally, avoiding artificial ingredients, grains, carrageenan, soy, and other inflammatory foods while reducing carbohydrate content is essential if your pet is dealing with allergies.
