People who have celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity are allergic to the gluten proteins found in grains such as barley, wheat, and rye. For these people, eating gluten results in inflammation of the digestive system and, potentially, other issues.
Dogs, too, can experience this type of allergy. If you find that your dog is overly flatulent or experiencing loose stool, skin rashes, or ear infections – they may be allergic to the brand of food you’re feeding them. This might be a gluten sensitivity or some other food allergy, so get in touch with your vet for their advice and recommended food formulas.
It’s important to know that some breeds are more prone to food allergies than others. Boxers, Collies, Pit Bulls, Golden Retrievers, Dalmatians, Schnauzers, and Terriers are all known to exhibit food allergies to commercial brand dog foods. Of course, every dog is different–so again, consult with your vet if you notice your dog having issues with their food.
