Chow Chows are a Chinese dog breed that may be the oldest breed of canines in existence. Their distinctive furry mane, aristocratic demeanor, and thick-muscled frames make them very popular show and guard dogs. A clean and generally healthy breed, Chows tend to deal with moderate health conditions like eyelid entropion, hip dysplasia, allergies, and thyroid problems.

A healthy diet is one of the optimal ways to fortify your Chow Chow’s naturally strong immune system.

Key Nutritional Considerations
For Chow Chows

Allergies

Compared to many other dog breeds, Chow Chows are far more prone to allergies, especially food allergies. Knowing this, most vets recommend that you avoid regularly feeding your Chow any of the following foods:

Beef, Corn, Dairy, Eggs, Pork, Soy, Wheat

Digestion

If your Chow eats food that causes an allergic reaction, the first place this manifests is usually in the digestive system. Adverse digestive reactions will likely result in discomfort and symptoms such as nausea and anorexia.  

Skin Condition

Chows don’t sneeze when they have an allergic reaction. Instead, the allergens cause their skin to itch and burn. Typically, this reaction in Chows will show up on the feet, belly, ears, and skin folds. Common symptoms include:

Hair loss, Rashes, Scratching, Itching

Happy Chows

As Eddy aged, I was concerned he wasn’t getting all the nutrition he needed. I knew his energy would lower as he got older, but I wanted to do as much as I could to give him all he needed for a healthy, long life. I have been hearing a lot about bad dog foods on social media and luckily found Lucy Pet from Brandon McMillan. Eddy LOVES the salmon flavor and I am happy that he is getting a GOOD food!
