Hypoallergenic Products For Dogs
Is your dog very sensitive to food and grooming products? Dogs with special dietary requirements and sensitive skin often require hypoallergenic products instead of normal products to help prevent allergies or further irritation. It can be difficult if your dog has a severe sensitivity to find the right products and make sure your dog is getting the right care. If you suspect your dog might have certain allergies then speak to your vet about what treatment you can give them and what products to use. Here are some common hypoallergenic products that you can buy for your dog.
Normal shampoo’s can really irritate dogs with sensitive skin and potentially flare up another allergic reaction. Some dogs are allergic to certain shampoos or respond better to milder shampoos with beneficial ingredients such as aloe vera and tea tree. If your dog has a skin condition or you think normal shampoos might irritate their skin then go for a hypoallergenic shampoo instead. Hypoallergenic shampoos are free from harmful chemicals and contain products that will help to soothe your dog’s skin. Try Johnson’s hypoallergenic shampoo
Hypoallergenic Dog Food
Dogs can be sensitive to different types of food, some common foods that cause allergies in dogs include dairy, beef, wheat, soy and yeast. If you are struggling to find a dog food that doesn’t upset your dog’s tummy then try a hypoallergenic dog food which contains ingredients that are less likely to cause an allergy.
As well as dog food you can also get special treats for sensitive dogs. There are so many different types of treats out there, it can be hard to choose which ones to go with. If your dog has digestion problems then it’s probably best to go for natural or hypoallergenic dog treats.
You can also buy anti allergy bedding for your dog. Some materials can irritate dogs with skin conditions and allergies. Some beds that aren’t made from natural products can cause allergies and make itching and scratching worse.
