Could My Pet Be Having an Allergic Reaction to Her Food?

Adverse reactions to food are difficult to differentiate from “atopy” in the dog because presenting symptoms are typically identical for both conditions.

Additionally, although food reactions occur as a non-seasonal dermatitis, many instances of atopy will similarly demonstrate no seasonal pattern. One factor that may be helpful for differentiating these two conditions is the observation that many dogs with food reactions will demonstrate skin lesions localized to the ears only. Therefore, dogs with recurrent ear infection even in the presence of bacterial or yeast infections should be considered suspect for a primary adverse food reaction. On average, adverse food reactions account for up to 10% to 30% of hypersensitive conditions in the dog, and of these, 80% of dogs with adverse food reactions will have a concurrent condition of atopy (refer to the previous section for more information on atopy).

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
