Two approaches in clinical dermatology to approaching food allergies:
1. EXCLUSION DIET PRINCIPLE:
These types of foods take special precautions to avoid being crosscontaminated. These include lamb and rice, venison and rice, and rabbit and tapioca. Instead of giving corn and chicken, you may use the above ingredients as replacements. This is usually the first step in ruling out allergies.
2. HYDROLYZED FEEDS:
Hypoallergenic dog foods may also be hydrolyzed, meaning that they go through a process of breaking down proteins on a level so small that they can no longer be “seen” by the dog’s immune system body to recognize them as allergens. This is often a prescription dog food, so you will need to talk to your veterinarian about this as an option for your dog. It is a fattening diet ration in that dogs with this level of protein digestibility may precipitate undesired weight gain. Therefore it must be transitioned to another prescription that is not associated with allergies to avert weight gain. This diagnosis maybe verified or supported
by Intradermal skin (IDSTI) testing for specific allergens. In the early phases of the diagnostic procedures, the removal of the suspected food allergies is key to make informed inferences on the most likely allergen. Reintroduction of the suspected allergen in the diet and inducing the same allergic dermatoses is proof that indeed we have nailed the culprit ingredient. While some companies sell over-the-counter foods that claim to be good for allergies—and some may contain supplements that can be helpful in controlling environmental allergies—these foods are not ideal for treating food allergies. Allergies can still happen with any and every kind of food ingredient, be it lamb, chicken, beef, fish, rice, wheat, oats, or even tapioca. Dog food allergies are a tricky business. Fortunately, they're also the type of allergy If your dog is showing signs of allergies, talk to your vet before making any changes to his or her food. Even if it turns out that s/he does have a food allergy, changing his or her food without a vet's supervision could make it more diffult to diagnose. It is also a common mistake to diagnose or ascribe all dermatoses as allergic reactions. There is a term apt for all suspected and anecdotal allergies: "over-diagnosis." Here are the three diffinitions: 1. The diagnosis of "disease" that will never cause symptoms or death during a patient's ordinarily expected lifetime.
2. A side effect of screening for early forms of disease. 3. ! # $ a disease is diagnosed correctly, but the diagnosis is irrelevant in that it is not dealt with appropriately and ends % & $ nowhere. (https://www.google.com.ph/search?source=hp ! nition&oq=overdiagnosis&gs_l=psy-ab.1.4.0l10.204)
