Purina HA Hypoallergenic Canine Formula

The role of dietary management in canine food allergy is to provide a proper balance of total nutrients while meeting the special dietary needs of the patient. Most common food allergens are proteins with a molecular weight of 18,000 to 70,000 daltons. Protein modification is a process which alters the physical characteristics of protein molecules, reducing the antigenicity and rendering them less able to elicit an immune response. By reducing the molecular weight of the protein molecule below 18,000 daltons, this process can result in a protein that is truly hypoallergenic.

Food allergies in pets can develop at any time, even under one year of age and even after years of eating a food without problems. The cause of an allergic reaction is usually due to a protein source, such as a beef or dairy ingredient. Adverse food reactions account for 10-15% of all allergic skin disease in dogs.

Food Allergy or Food Intolerance generally appear as:
Gastrointestinal (GI) Upset - vomiting, diarrhea, excess gas, weight loss
Intense Itching and Scratching - involving the ears, face, feet, tail and stomach

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Panama City, FL United States  
A vet in California recommended Purina HA for our Westie about 10 years ago.  Our Westie was chewing his paws, had hot spots, generally red skin, and would vomit about once per week.  He is our 5th Westie and all have had similar symptoms to a vastly lesser degree.  Vet suspected our Westie had more than one type of allergy but the vomit was an indicator of possible food allergy.  The vet said if we could control one of the allergy types (food in this case) then our Westie might be able to tolerate his other allergies.  Since we were traveling in our RV we couldn't stay in that town for the usual 6-8 weeks (or more) to try with the vet's assistance to eliminate which food(s) might be the problem.  We have fed our now 13-year old Westie Purina HA for about 10-years without further allergy problems.  
One suggestion if your dog seems to choke on the dry kibble, add a small about of water to the dry kibble about 15-minutes before feeding; the moisture will prevent the choking.
