MY DOG SUFFERS FROM SEVERE ALLERGIES TO CORN

June 10, 2014

I purchased a bottle of your Healthy Skin and Coat formula because my breeder highly recommends it. My dog suffers from severe allergies. I noticed one of the ingredients is corn germ meal. My dog is allergic to corn. His allergies seem to be worse lately. Is it from this ingredient?

Hi Monica,

We have fed the formula to other dogs allergic to corn and have not seen any reaction. Most often it is not the germ portion on the corn causing allergic reactions. To test this take your dog off the product for 3 weeks, evaluate the allergic reaction at that point, and then put the dog back on the product and reevaluate the condition in about two more weeks. PLEASE let me know of the results.
