Allergy or intolerance?

If a dog does not tolerate its food, there may be an allergy or intolerance. Both terms are often mistakenly used as synonyms.

In the case of an allergy, an overreaction of the immune system occurs due to repeated ingestion of substances (food components) that are harmless in themselves.
The immune system begins to fight the allergenic substances that the dog does not tolerate - defensive reactions such as diarrhea, itching or inflammation can be the result.
Food allergies occur less frequently in dogs. Intolerances, on the other hand, are much more common and are steadily increasing.

In the case of food intolerance or intolerance, the dog's own defense system is not involved.
Here, the dog's organism is simply unable to process, break down or even absorb certain food components.
In contrast to allergy, small amounts of the allergen can be tolerated. Food intolerances usually occur very delayed and can also manifest themselves with diarrhea or itching.
