As pet parents, we want to see our four-legged companions live their happiest, healthiest lives. Yet, when our dogs struggle with issues like itchy skin and digestive upsets, it's only natural for our hearts to ache. In this guide, we explore common food sensitivities our dogs face and how we can better support them through a single protein diet. 


Identifying Common Food Sensitivities

Food sensitivities in dogs can manifest in various ways, from digestive issues to skin problems and even behavioural changes.



Food Sensitivities: Signs and Symptoms

To identify if your dog is suffering from food sensitivities, keep an eye out for the following signs:

  • Digestive Issues: Vomiting, diarrhea, flatulence, increased number of bowel movements, bottom scooting or constipation.
  • Skin Irritations: Itchy skin, excessive licking, yeast infections, hot spots, or ear infections.
  • Behavioural Changes: Lethargy, hyperactivity, aggression. 



Single Protein Diets for a Healthier, Happier Dog

Adopting a single protein diet can be a game-changer for dog owners navigating food sensitivities. Single protein diets (SPDs) feature a single animal protein source, like chicken, beef, lamb, or fish, with a limited selection of other ingredients. Feeding your dog an SPD can eliminate common allergens, helping pet parents pinpoint and manage their dog's specific sensitivities more effectively.

At Prime100, we specialize in creating single protein diets with the following features and benefits:

Single Protein Formulas: Each Prime100 SPD Fresh Roll is made using a single source of animal protein, minimizing the risk of triggering sensitivities and making it easier to identify specific allergens. We also offer formulas featuring novel protein options, such as our Kangaroo & Pumpkin SPD Fresh Roll and our Salmon & Tapioca SPD Fresh Roll.

Grain-Free: Our recipes exclude common allergens like wheat and corn ensuring a gentle and easily digestible meal for your furry friend.

Limited Ingredient Recipes: We prioritize simplicity without compromising nutritional value, offering limited ingredient formulas for sensitive stomachs.

 High-Quality Ingredients:  Each SPD Fresh Roll is made using premium ingredients with purpose to support overall health and well-being, ensuring your dog receives the nutrition they deserve.



Choosing to feed your dog a single protein diet is an excellent option for dog owners seeking to give their sensitive pup a healthier, happier life, free from the troubles of food sensitivities. Remember that if you suspect your dog is suffering from a food-related allergy or sensitivity, it's always best to speak to your veterinarian to examine your dog and resolve any existing infections.
