Pet Health Issues

Has your pet been medically diagnosed with allergies?

Choose this meal package if your pet has:

Contact Dermatitis: is when a substance in the environment comes into contact with your pet’s skin and causes an allergic reaction. The most common cause is from certain types of grass such as buffalo, couch and kikuyu and other ground covers such as wandering dew, as well as plants both inside and outside your home. Other causes of contact dermatitis can be topical flea and tick control, pet shampoos, carpet deodorisers, floor cleaning chemicals and herbicides (such as weed killer) in your garden.

Symptoms usually appear within 4-72 hours after your pet has been in contact with the offender and include severe itching accompanied with a red rash, usually on the belly and under the armpits where the dog has come into contact with the offender.

Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic Dermatitis is also a reaction to the environment and causes an allergic reaction when you pet inhales an airborne substance such as pollens from grass or plants, dust mites, or even mould.

There is a myriad of symptoms, however the common ones are itching (particularly around the eyes, muzzle, ears, groin, paws and armpits), chronic ear infections, inflamed skin including skin infections (usually from biting and licking the itchy areas), a greasy skin and coat.

Some breed dogs are particularly prone to atopic dermatitis (such as Labradors, Staffies, German Shepherds, French Bulldogs, Beagles).

The best way to distinguish both a contact and atopic allergy is with a Specialised Veterinary Dermatologist who will perform a patch test.

Please note, if the allergy is food related, this can only be determined through an elimination diet. Refer to my Itchy Skin Hypoallergenic Customised Raw Meal Package to assist with this.

Why do allergies occur?

Allergies are an over-the-top reaction of your pet’s immune system. Genetics do play a role in the development of allergies; however, it is the environment your pet is exposed to, including the food your pet eats, that will ultimately decide to what degree the allergy is expressed.

When the allergy is environmental, you may or may not see symptoms improve, but implementing my 8 week skin allergy diet is going to give your pet a great foundation and starting point to heal the gut and boost the immune system. After 8 weeks if there is improvement, other proteins may be introduced back into the diet which we will address together before moving to the next stage.

About the Package…

Your pet is free from illness, such as heart, liver and kidney disease, cancer, diabetes and arthritis. Your pet may have other health issues that I offer in my additional meal packages.

Your pet must be an adult, 12+ months for dogs and cats or 18-24 + months for large and giant breed dogs.

You may already be a raw feeder and want to ensure your pet is receiving a balanced diet, or you may be new to raw feeding.

My meal packages offer the traditional BARF style of feeding for cats and small dogs and a BARF diet with a twist suitable for medium to large breed dogs, or dogs of all sizes with a healthy appetite. A BARF diet consists of whole or minced raw meaty bones, muscle meat, fruit & vegetables, offal and a range of natural food supplements to enhance the diet. The diet is simple, convenient and easy to follow without compromising on your pet’s health.

You make the food yourself, so you know exactly what your pet is consuming. I always recommend human grade ingredients because if you can’t eat the food, then your pet shouldn’t either!

Once your pet has reached their health goal, you maintain it with the raw diet provided for the rest of their life.
