Food allergy and my Chocolate Labrador Retriever

Subject: Food allergy and my Chocolate Labrador Retriever

From: Shelley (Canada)

Labrador Retriever Name: Colt

I received an e-mail from Shelly letting me know about skin problems with her chocolate Labrador Retriever. Shelly went on to explain about food allergies and what she found to help alleviate the problem.

Reader's E-mail - Shelly Writes:

I have a 1 year old Labrador Retriever who started to have skin problems, we were taking him to the vet every month because his fur would fall out and he would dig.

After a while we decided to try different things and we found out that it was a food allergy. I think that he was allergic to chicken and wheat so we are feeding him a new food that is oven baked and has fish in it, no chicken. His skin has never looked better and his fur looks amazing. I am so glad that we found something to help our dog. He is part of our family and I only want him to have a happy healthy life, and he loves this food.

Hello Shelly,

Thank you for visiting All About Labradors and for your e-mail. I'm glad you found out the possible cause of his problem. I would like to post your letter to the blog, but would also like to ask you a couple of questions.

What kind of food are your feeding him?

Are you using any other supplements with the food?

What is your Labrador Retriever's name?

What color is your Labrador?

Looking forward to your reply.

We are feeding our chocolate Labrador Retriever, Colt, Oven Baked Tradition and that is all he gets nothing else. That way if his skin starts to get bad we know what it is. He loves this food,and he never liked any other dry kibble before.

My 8 month old lab gets all the symptoms of food allergies, we've tried rice and lamb, (no wheat) salmon sweet potato and he gets hot spots, dry mouth, shortness of breath, itching and is prone to every kind of infection.... my vet put him on hill science ultra allergen free food. he has smaller bowel movements with this food and gets gas a lot. Have you heard anything about this food or have any suggestions.. is he getting all the nutrition he needs?
