Chappie dog food is one of those iconic dog food brands that everybody has heard of. It seems to have been around forever. In reality, it’s over 60 years old so the chances are anybody who’s had a dog in the past 40 or 50 years will have heard of, fed or encountered Chappie dog food at some point.
Chappie dog food is manufactured by Mars, who are the brand-owner of many other pet food brands including Pedigree and Pal.
Chappie Dog Food For Dogs With Allergies
There is a mystery surrounding exactly why a food ingredient causes the symptoms of food allergy.
But one thing we do know is that many vets often suggest their clients try their dogs on Chappie dog food as and when a skin condition may rear its ugly head.
Some animal specialists suspect that abnormal amounts, or certain types of protein particles from food, are absorbed into the bloodstream from the digestive tract.
This releases antibodies and inflammatory chemicals from the cells of the digestive tract and skin, which is a process commonly called “hypersensitivity”.
The skin and the digestive tract may then become sensitive to food that contains that particular ingredient. The offending item is a ruthless one and a dog that has a sensitive reaction, such as itchy skin, vomiting or diarrhea may start to suffer from these within minutes, although they can occur up to a few days later.
Chappie dog food, whilst being one of the lower cost tinned foods, contains fish. Fish is very often a superb source of protein that doesn’t tend to be implicated in allergies in dogs.
If your dog is suspected of being allergic, see your vet and ask them whether they would recommend trying the dog on Chappie for a trial period.
