Dog Food Recipes for Dogs with Allergies

Dogs with allergies need special consideration and part of that is a change in diet. This can be easily accomplished by a simple search for dog food recipes for dogs with allergies.

Dogs that have allergies in the large part have a serious sensitivity to commercially prepared food, which is the food that is generally available for a fairly low cost in your local supermarket.

Although commercially prepared dog food may be convenient, there is actually very little that the manufacturers take into consideration when it comes to your dog’s health and need for a nutritious food.

Dog food recipes for dogs with allergies tend to be a more healthy choice for several reasons.


  • The ingredients that are used in these recipes are usually whole or fresh foods, or foods, lean meats and broths for flavoring. There are no added preservatives or fillers. Fillers are added to commercially prepared dog food to increase their bulk and weight, but provide absolutely no nutritional value whatsoever.
  • You can control exactly what goes into dog food recipes for dogs with allergies by choosing the recipes that you deem appropriate.
  • Large batches of these recipes can be prepared and then divided into individual serving sizes which can be frozen for future use.


Many dog owners find that dog food recipes for dogs with allergies are readily available in many popular sources.

You may go to your local bookstore and purchase a book, download one online or even find recipes for free. The recipes in themselves are great; however, you will need to supplement the food by adding minerals and vitamins to ensure that your dog is getting all of the nutritional value that he requires daily.

There are many ways to prepare dog food recipes for dogs with allergies.

The best thing to keep in mind is that you want to prepare large quantities of the recipe as mentioned earlier, so that you do not have to prepare it repeatedly throughout the week. You may wish to prepare enough for several weeks, and you also may wish to prepare more than one recipe to give your dog some variety.

Eating the same thing day in and day out can become very mundane, as you are probably quite aware. In addition, if you are supplementing, be sure to keep the vitamins and minerals separate from the recipe, adding it in only at the last moment in order to ensure optimum benefit from a fresh supplement.

Once you stop feeding your dog a commercially available food and begin feeding him a restaurant quality home recipe dog food (restaurant quality when compared to the garbage available for purchase in a bag). You will begin to notice many changes for the better.

Your dog will probably stop scratching, hot spots and dog skin irritation will disappear, there will be no more paw licking and his skin will begin to become less dry. Your dog deserves to be healthy and happy and you have a responsibility to feed him as best as you can, while also ensuring he is receiving the proper nutrition.

Following dog food recipes for dogs with allergies is a simple and cost effective method of enhancing your pet’s general well being.

  3. In the old days dogs were fed just to keep them alive. Today this is a different story, at least in developed countries. Nutritional science continues, the market changes, new dog food ingredients are developed and dog food recalls and environmental awareness change the dog food landscape.

    Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention. My friend has a Maltese who recently began incessantly knowing at the top of her paw. Someone mentioned that it is due to fungus dogs pick up from outdoors grass/vegetation. It was suggested that she use vinegar to sooth the itch and curb her habit. My friend feeds her dog food from a bag. So I must ask you: could the commercially prepared food she buys in a bag be causing the dog’s condition and do you think switching to naturally prepared food will help? I care for her dog and would appreciate your advice.

    I can’t believe I never thought of this myself. My dog has really bad allergies, he scratches all the time to the point of having bald spots, he bites himself etc. even the skin on his stomach has turned black and smells sometimes. I have switched his food to stuff that is supposed to be more natural for him. I have taken him to the vet, I have given him allergy pills to no avail. But not once did I consider making him his own food from a recipe so I would know exactly what was in it. I would do that for my kids why not my dog. I feel so stupid.

    Would a diet of lean hamburger, eggs and rice be good for a dog with allergies, (well unless he is allergic to eggs), or should I use Ground Turkey instead. Would that have enough omega 3 fatty acids in it or should I use some kind of fish? His skin and coat aren’t really dry but doesn’t he need the oils so his itching will stop? I have tried everything even oatmeal bathes and sea salt bathes to no avail, I will try his diet and hope it works for him because I know he is miserable. Thanks for the great advice.
