What is the truth about grains in pet food?

Grains are often blamed unfairly for allergic reactions in pets. But did you know that less than 10% of pets with allergic conditions have adverse reactions to food? And 68% of reported adverse reactions to food are from beef, wheat and dairy. Frequently, other grains like corn and rice are mistakenly included in this group. While we certainly understand that some pets, like people, can have a sensitivity to some foods, simply eating a grain will not cause an allergic reaction.

If you are concerned about your dog or cat having an allergy to their food, speak to your vet about the symptoms you are seeing. They will be able to assist you in finding the source of these symptoms. In the meantime, read up on some of the signs and symptoms of dog skin conditions to see if you recognise any of these on your pet.
