Can Raw Dog Food Cause Allergies?

Not likely, however, there are some external factors that can cause triggers. Raw and real food is the most natural nutritional and biologically appropriate buildings blocks for your cats and dogs.


Most vaccinations require some form of animal protein, typically beef or chicken, to grow in. During the production process of the vaccines, sometimes the antigen or antibody “get’s dragged over” with a protein molecule bonded. If this happens, the protein source then cause the allergic reaction. True food allergies involve an adverse immune response, which causes cells in the body to release histamines or compounds that lead to many allergic signs. True food allergies involve the immune system attacking a food protein. Anything the body perceives as xenobiotic (meaning foreign), it will try to expel.

In this case, the raw animal protein source is not the cause, but the result, of this trigger. In most instance these triggers dissipate over time and the “allergy” clear.
