Did you know that your dog may have been experiencing food sensitivities without you realizing it? With food intolerances in dogs seemingly on the rise, it is as important as ever for pet owners to be aware of the warning signs so they can find solutions for improving their pet’s dietary health.

Here are some of the common warning signs that your dog may be struggling with elements of their diet:

  • Excessive paw licking or chewing, with paws often turning red as a result
  • Chronic or recurrent ear infections
  • Fur loss
  • Itching and rashes, especially around the dog’s face, feet, ears, forelegs, or armpits
  • Vomiting and diarrhea (which can develop over time, when feeding the same food, therefore should be closely monitored)

If your dog is experiencing any of the above symptoms, it could be a sign that they have a food intolerance. Switching their food may be an option. GO!  SOLUTIONS SENSITIVITIES™ LIMITED INGREDIENT recipes are one option for dogs with food sensitivities and specific dietary needs. The recipes are carefully prepared using a single source of animal protein with all the nutrients your dog requires and as few ingredients as possible.

Knowing the warning signs is the first step towards understanding whether your dog is suffering from a food-related intolerance. Careful consideration of the food you feed your dog can help prevent unwanted food intolerances that can disrupt their digestive system.
