There is no notable difference in the nutritional value of flash-processed and ultra-processed food for dogs. However, research shows that ultra-processed food may cause health problems such as skin allergies in dogs, as this video explains. Every diet can change the gene expression of any animal. If one feeds a dog a bad diet, many problems can result. Watch this video to know more about a dog’s diet.
How does ultra-processed food cause allergies in dogs? Ultra-processed food is prepared at high temperatures. A combination of Protein and carbohydrates prepared at a high temperature tend to cause an unwanted chemical reaction called Advanced Glycation End product (AGEs). Preparing the food at a higher temperature produces more AGEs. And, the more AGEs produced, the harder it is for a dog’s skin to heal from the allergy.
What then is the best diet for dogs with allergies? Between raw and dried food, balanced raw food is the best diet for dogs. However, if one has to feed a dog ultra-processed kibble or canned food, they should mix it with raw or minimally processed food. That can help the dog produce antioxidants and anti-inflammatory effects that help keep the dog’s skin healthy.
