In the last few years, the drum beat signaling the need to compare protein sources in the dog and cat food that we purchase for our pets has grown louder. Avoiding those pet foods that add poor sources of protein such as wheat, corn, soy, rice, and meat by-products has been stressed a great deal. However, little emphasis has been given to the health benefits of a high quality single protein as the basis for a dog food that maximizes nutrition for dogs with food allergies or intolerances. A single protein dog food that combines veterinary and nutritionists-recommended proteins from animals that are free-ranging will eliminate the possibility of toxins such as antibiotics and other pharmaceutical residues that can cause these chronic inflammations. While most single protein dog food choices that utilize a traditional high quality muscle meat source such as from beef, chicken or lamb can form the basis of good nutrition for many dogs, it may not be the best choice for those dogs suffering from food allergies or intolerances. A single protein dog food that utilizes ocean fish as its protein source has been proven to eliminate the causes of most food allergies while being highly enjoyable for the pet. In the creation of our single protein dog food line, we have utilized ocean fish, which is rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Fatty acids have been scientifically proven to have a positive effect in terms of autoimmune conditions, allergies and inflammation among others. By ensuring that our single protein dog food utilizes deep water ocean fish that is free of toxins, dogs that suffer from food allergies or intolerances can get a high quality protein source that also caters to their food sensitivity.

Hydrolyzed protein diets often feature chicken or soy as the protein source, with soy often preferred since few dogs have likely consumed soy protein as part of their former diet, so they are unlikely to be allergic to the soy protein. These proteins are usually paired with potato, rice or cornstarch as the carbohydrate source as these are less commonly used in commercial dog food production than other carbohydrates like whole kernel corn or wheat.Chicken is a common food allergen among dogs. This is why we choose duck, fish, turkey, lamb and kangaroo in our hypoallergenic formula of single source-protein and carefully selected fruits and vegetables. Our recipes are inspired by nature, and only use the highest quality animal proteins that work with your dog’s digestive system.Proteins actually cause more food allergies in dogs than grains. In fact, showed that beef was the most common allergen in dogs, followed by dairy. Dr. Radheshwar says, “An individual is just as likely, if not more likely, to be allergic to the protein source in the food versus a grain.” If your dog has signs of allergy such as dry skin or upset stomach, consider the protein source first. Limited or single-ingredient protein sources will help you narrow down any potential sensitivities. A relative newcomer to the dog food aisle, duck dog food (which is made using duck meat as the main protein) has been gaining popularity, often in diets created for dogs with food sensitivities. Considered an alternative protein source, duck meat is one of several of the more exotic proteins you might find listed on dog food labels.
