Allergy Free Dog Treats
Allergy free dog treats are available for those dogs that have allergic reactions to common food ingredients such as wheat. These treats are also called "hypoallergenic dog treats." Food allergies are at the root of about 10% of allergic reactions in dogs, so they are not rampant.
Typically the dog will have itchy skin and a dull coat. Wheat allergy is one type of food allergy in dogs. Many dog biscuits are made with wheat flour so it is an ubiquitous ingredient. Wheat flour is not only economical, but easy to work with.
There are other flours that are not implicated in causing allergies, but require some knowledge of how best to use them in baking.
Some dogs, just like people, develop a sensitivity to certain ingredients. Your veterinarian will be able to help determine if your dog truly has a wheat sensitivity or intolerance and will need wheat free dog treats.
