If after inputting the food allergy test results all commercial diets are ruled out, this means based on the information supplied by the pet food manufacturers, all of the diets on our database contain either protein or carbohydrates this dog has shown either an IgE or IgG response to. You may wish to consider; a home cooked diet based on the dog’s dietary history and serological testing results, additional testing with Cyno-Dial to try and identify a suitable diet or seeking advice on the suitability of an extensively hydrolysed prescription diet for this case from the manufacturers.

There is increasing evidence that many related foods contain similar proteins, which may be cross-reactive. Should reactivity be shown to one food, it is advisable that all other related foods also be avoided where possible. For example, if an IgE hypersensitivity response is seen to mammalian proteins beef, lamb and milk, it would be preferable to avoid other mammalian proteins such as pork, venison and rabbit. Using an avian or fish protein source for the exclusion diet would be a better choice if this is compatible with the animal’s dietary history.
