Managing Pet Allergies the Natural Way

Next to obesity, veterinarians report skin and ear-related concerns are the most prevalent conditions they see on sick-dog visits.

Allergic reactions can show up at any age, though the vast majority of cases occur between two and six years. Yet few dog owners realize that these often-painful allergy symptoms may be remedied simply with the right nutritious food. A limited ingredient diet is designed to manage allergies naturally, by removing additional proteins, carbohydrates, fillers and additives. Since its successful introduction in 2004, Wellness® Simple Food Solutions® formula has helped thousands of dogs in need find relief from allergy symptoms and broaden the scope of healing.

Simple Food Solutions is the only limited ingredient diet that features fresh meat in all of its flavors and varieties. It combines one novel animal protein source, like duck, plus one easily digestible carbohydrate source, like ground rice, with a short, yet complete list of key ingredients. Nothing extra. We are happy to share our new complete line of Simple Food Solutions. In addition to Simple Food Solutions® Rice & Duck dry formula, we offer Simple Food Solutions® Rice & Lamb and Rice & Salmon, as well as a line of cans to complement each dry formula in Lamb & Rice, Salmon & Rice and Duck & Rice varieties.

Our three flavors allow you to pick a formula best suited to your dog’s needs and Simple Food Solutions cans are perfect for a dog who prefers moist food or as a complement to your dog’s dry diet.

The limited ingredients in Simple Food Solutions® are carefully chosen for their quality, nutritional value and their ability to nourish with simplicity:

  • Ground Rice – With the bran layer removed, it is easy to digest. There are no additional carbohydrates.
  • Duck, Lamb or Salmon – These are “novel,” high quality alternatives to common proteins due to their unique amino acid profiles.
  • Canola Oil – High quality fat source is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids to help dogs maintain healthy skin and coat from the inside out.
  • Tomato Pomace – Rich in the antioxidant lycopene; an excellent dietary fiber source.
  • Vitamins & Minerals – A complete blend of everything a dog needs for daily wellbeing.

How to Get Your Dog Certified As A Therapy Dog

Therapy dogs provide an important and rewarding job for both the dog and the owner. If you are interested in your pet becoming a certified therapy dog you first need to make sure your dog is best suited for this type of work. Therapy dogs should be well trained and friendly. The dog should not be frightened of strangers or new situations and should enjoy going out and visiting new and unfamiliar places.

For certification, your dog will need to be in good health and up to date in all vaccinations. You should receive a health certificate from your veterinarian. Of course, make sure that your dog is well trained. Good therapy dogs need to be able to sit, lie down and stay on command and to walk on a leash without pulling. Read the rest of this entry »
