The objective of the present study was to compare the efficacy of a commercial limited-antigen diet (Eukanuba Veterinary Diets Response Formula FP/Canine, The Iams Company) with home-prepared diets in the diagnosis of adverse food reaction in dogs. The study was conducted in two phases. The first phase utilized 28 dogs fed a home-prepared diet to enable a diagnosis of adverse food reaction. Dogs diagnosed from this phase were entered into the second phase in which these dogs were fed the… 

Tables from this paper

A retrospective analysis of case series using home-prepared and chicken hydrolysate diets in the diagnosis of adverse food reactions in 181 pruritic dogs.

It is indicated that the chicken hydrolysate diet may be a valuable alternative to home-prepared diets in the diagnosis of canine AFR and cross-over studies are warranted to confirm these findings.

Identification of undeclared sources of animal origin in canine dry foods used in dietary elimination trials.

Assessment of twelve canine dry limited antigen diets for potential contamination by ingredients of animal origin not mentioned on the label found no discrepancies between the results obtained by PCR and/or microscopy analysis and the ingredients listed on pet food packages.

Dietary trials with a commercial chicken hydrolysate diet in 63 pruritic dogs

The owners of 63 pruritic dogs were instructed to feed them a chicken hydrolysate diet exclusively for six weeks as part of diagnostic investigations into non-seasonal pruritus, including four which found the diet unpalatable; however, its palatability was reported to be good or excellent in 48 of the dogs.

Study of the chemical and nutritional characteristics of commercial dog foods used as elimination diet for the diagnosis of canine food allergy

It is suggested that the differences observed in the fatty acids composition may be attributed to fish proteins addition, but not to fish oil, in H pet foods production.

Efficacy of hydrolyzed soy dog food and homemade food with original protein in the control of food-induced atopic dermatitis in dogs

Soy hydrolyzed dog food has proved effective to partially control clinical signs of food-induced atopic dermatitis; however, it is not effective for the complete control of the disease.

SMALL ANIMAL PRACTICE Hydrolyzed Protein Diets for Dogs and Cats

The term hypoallergenic diet is discouraged and should be reserved for diets that have at least been demonstrated to possess a substantial reduction in antigenicity and have preferably been shown to be tolerated by the most patients known to be hypersensitive to the intact source protein.

International Science Symposium : Nature , Nurture , and the Case for Nutrition Diagnosis of Adverse Reactions to Food in Dogs : Efficacy of a Soy-Isolate Hydrolyzate-Based Diet 1 , 2

The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of a diet containing soy isolate hydrolyzate for the diagnosis of adverse reaction to food in dogs in a multicentric field study.

Prevalence of adverse food reactions in 130 dogs in Italy with dermatological signs: a retrospective study.

The prevalence of AFRs in the study population was higher than most reported values and its possible association with perianal fistula and other potential markers is questionable.

Immunologic responses against hydrolyzed soy protein in dogs with experimentally induced soy hypersensitivity

High serum concentrations of soy-specific IgE and positive results for the intradermal test were observed for the 9 sensitized dogs after completion of the sesitization process, and Sensitized dogs challenge exposed with hydrolyzed soy protein had a reduced inflammatory...



Diagnosis of food allergy in dogs.

Findings indicated that the recommendation of a 3-week elimination-diet trial for diagnosis of food allergy was adequate for only 25% of the dogs, and it is recommended that test diets be fed for at least 10 weeks before a food allergy is ruled out.

This study records the use of a proprietary dried fish, corn and soya-based diet for the investigation and maintenance of food allergic dogs when fed initially as a restricted allergen diet and then as a maintenance diet after challenge.

Diagnostic testing of dogs for food hypersensitivity.

The commercial diet, skin testing, and anti-IgE ELISA cannot replace an owner-prepared food elimination diet for food hypersensitivity testing in dogs, indicating a lack of true- and false-positive reactions.

Results of a Hypoallergenic Diet Survey of Veterinarians in North America with a Nutritional Evaluation of Homemade Diet Prescriptions.

Most (90 per cent) of the homemade elimination diets were not nutritionally adequate for adult maintenance based on currently available recommendations and were evaluated for their nutritional adequacy.

Food hypersensitivity in 30 dogs.

Food hypersensitivity was diagnosed in 30 dogs, with pruritus, erythema, and papules being the most common signs, and none of the owners could relate the onset of clinical signs with a recent change in diet.

Food allergy and food intolerance--what is the difference?

Many cases of food allergy to proteins may be misdiagnosed as food intolerance due to a low sensitivity of the tests used, because of the great variability in diagnostic sensitivity and specificity reported in the literature.

Food Allergy In Dogs And Cats. A Review and Report of 43 Cases.

Clinical aspects, diagnosis and aetiology are emphasised and compared with published data and 33 cases in dogs and cats, seen in Aquitaine, France, are described.

Food allergy

Opinion statementAlthough many emerging therapies demonstrate theoretical and practical promise, strict elimination of the allergenic food remains the only proven therapy for food hypersensitivity.
