In recent years, cats and dogs seem to have become more sensitive to a wide range of substances that they come into contact with, either in the environment or through their food. Dogs appear to suffer from food allergies more than cats and in these cases changing to a natural feeding regime, to reduce the additives given, has proved helpful. For contact allergies the only real way to solve the problem is to identify the cause and restrict the animal’s access to it, although this can prove difficult in practice. Many food allergies in dogs present themselves as a skin irritation and this can cause a minor infection which should be treated with Garlic & Fenugreek tablets to treat the infection and Mixed Vegetables tablets tablets to reduce the irritation, both at the treatment dose.
