Food allergy in dogs is a problem frequently encountered by owners. It is an abnormal reaction of the immune system to normally harmless proteins. It is to be differentiated from food intolerance, which does not involve immunity and only concerns a difficulty in digesting a food. Dogs with allergies usually suffer from skin and digestive problems. The origin of allergies is difficult to pinpoint, but it is possible to say that the quality of the diet, the combination of various foods and genetics are largely responsible.
Some veterinarians and other pet professionals agree that allergies have increased in recent years. It is probable that food plays an important role in their appearance, and in particular the especially the foods that are mostly marketed nowadays, this having for cause:
the strong presence of allergenic and poorly digestible plants such as wheat, soy, legumes (peas, lentils …)
by-products, processed products and other components are not of first quality
the intestinal flora is depleted by a dry and inadequate diet composed mainly of hydrolyzed proteins, i.e. proteins undergo a transformation, making them almost invisible for the immune system.
The BARF diet makes it possible to control the presence of each ingredient in the dog’s diet, but also to ensure their quality. To start the BARF diet, each food is introduced little by little over a short period of time in order to accustom the animal’s digestive system and to detect any possible allergic reaction or intolerance.
Compared to to those present in foods cooked, hydrolyzed, The components of a BARF diet are less numerous, but their nutritional value and quality are much highermaking them much more assimilable. The diversity of the meals and the right proportion of each ingredient allows a sufficient intake to cover the dog’s needs for a long time.
Recent studies reveal that the intestinal flora (microbiota) plays a major role in the performance of the immune system. A poor quality and unsuitable diet leads to a depletion of the microbiota. Thus, the immune system is weakened and dysfunctional. A natural diet will be perfectly adapted to the balance of the microbiota and will and will thus reduce the risk of allergies.
