The role of dietary management in canine food allergy is to provide a proper balance of total nutrients while meeting the special dietary needs of the patient. Nutritional management of food hypersensitivity involves the identification and avoidance of the offending antigenic proteins. Providing a diet with a limited number of novel protein ingredients may be helpful in the management of dogs with allergies to more common proteins. Omega-3 fatty acids may also be beneficial in reducing the inflammation associated with allergic dermatitis and other inflammatory skin conditions.
Diets with these nutritional modifications have been recommended for dogs with some forms of the following conditions:
• Food allergic dermatitis
• Other inflammatory skin conditions
• Pruritis associated with atopy
