Food allergies in dogs account for up to 5% of all canine dermatoses. Signs are predominantly associated with skin (including ear infections) and/or the gastrointestinal tract. Several studies have shown that some ingredients are more likely to cause food allergies than others. In order of the most common offenders in dogs are beef, dairy products, fish, corn, wheat and soy. (Source: The Complete Textbook of Veterinary Nursing – V. Aspinall)
