What is an elimination diet?
An elimination diet is where a nutritionist or veterinarian places a dog, or cat, on a ‘novel’ single protein meat diet for a period of 8-10 weeks (or as directed). If the dog’s indications have improved, the expert will usually challenge the dog or cat with ingredients to see if they react to the protein to identify an allergy. After this time, the dog should only have proteins that they do not react to.
