LIMITED INGREDIENT DIETS
Just like humans, pets can develop allergies or intolerance to certain foods and ingredients. Food allergies can develop any time. When pets eat something that its allergic to, their immune system goes into overdrive and produces antibodies against the particular food or ingredient. Allergic reactions include hot spots, hives or itchy, irritated skin. Gastrointestinal issues and infected ears also are a telltale sign of a food allergy.
When a pet is suffering from food allergies, one popular course of action is to get the pet on the right diet. Limited ingredient diets are typically crafted to reduce the number of ingredients a pet is exposed to with the purpose of avoiding an adverse food reaction.
For some pets, a limited ingredient diet is the solution to their health problems. Some pet parents also might choose a limited ingredient diet to follow a “clean eating” lifestyle. There are no set regulations for how many ingredients are in a limited ingredient food, so it’s important to know what’s actually in the pet food recipe. And it’s importance that retailers work with their customers to match the appropriate dietary solution that most benefits the pet.
