Allergies And Skin Things!; natural ways to help dogs with allergies

Allergies And Skin Things!; natural ways to help dogs with allergies

Most skin problems and allergies are attributed to too much of the wrong foods and not enough of the right ones. Foods as the saying goes you are what you eat, contain vitamins and minerals which your body absorbs to survive. Foods contain often not enough minerals or vitamins for healthy pets. A healthy animal should not ba attractive to parasites,ie; fleas, worms, mozzies, mange.
For healthy skin, copper is needed. Lack of copper can be seen in rusty coat colours, a slight curl on the ends of the coat and uneven colour. Also lack of copper is the main reason for internal parasites.
a lack of iodine is seen in a dandruff coat, and interestingly enough, in a litter having the females die and not the males as females need more iodine than males.

Copper, sulphur,zinc and keratin are the main components of the skin, without them foot and skin problems occur.
Eczema has been linked to a zinc deficiency, as zinc is needed for healthy skin and eyes.
So adding kelp powder and a tiny pinch of yellow suphur powder will go a long way in helping with skin problems. But feeding processed foods do not help at all. Feeding a raw diet with all the nutrients in tact and not damaged by cooking goes hand in hand.
The problem is, as breeders it will take a few generations to right the mineral imbalances so that the future puppies have no suceptability to skin problems whatsoever

Dog skin allergies are extremely common and can come from food, bugs or your dog's environment.

Most of us are familiar with the common allergy symptoms seen in humans such as sneezing, watery eyes, an itchy throat and skin rashes, just to name a few.

And those that suffer are quite familiar with the frustrations that allergies can cause.

Similarly, your dog can show symptoms of their allergies in many ways, and skin reactions are a big one.

Let's practice the first step in dealing with dog skin allergies.

lots of the things that affect the dog also are things we use around the house. cleaning agents.for instance my wife clean the back yard(conctrete) with soap and bleach 3 times a week. one of my dogs always break out small rash on skin droopy eyes.
another thing we just found.
chicken..
we no longer feed anything that contain chicken as the protein source...we did a study and realize they was always sheding  had to bathe them like 2 week.and stool wasent solid.

we now feed ACANA. dog from its a exellent food made in canada. we feed the ranchland beef bison and lamb. and we give a good source of vitamins to add to the food. every dog is different. but now we dint even had a rough transition when we switch doog food.the dogs stool hard solid.

so monitor what you feed. and evaluate whats causing the dogs breakout.
