Why is my dog itching and scratching?

If your dog is suffering from itchy skin, dandruff, a dull coat, dry skin, red/inflamed skin or hair loss then he may have a food allergy or intolerance.

Determining which ingredient your dog is allergic to is a tricky business and one which is a case of trial and error. However, there are ingredients which are more commonly known to cause problems such as wheat gluten, corn, beef, dairy products and artificial preservatives.

Zinc helps to repair and maintain healthy skin.

No Nasties!

No artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives which are all known to cause allergic reactions amongst dogs.

Limited ingredients and fixed formula

We don’t use unnecessary fillers which increase the likelihood of an allergic reaction and we use a fixed formula so you know our ingredients won’t change batch to batch.

Many dog foods use 'animal derivatives' as a description within their ingredients; because this can consist of a variety of animal parts such as heads, feet and intestines, and can come from a variety of animals such as cows, sheep, and horses, it is very difficult to keep a consistent formula and your dog may have a sudden reaction to a food despite having no reaction previously.
