A Randomized Controlled Trial of the Benefit of Royal Canin Anallergenic Veterinary Diet in Dogs with Spontaneous Pruritic Chicken Hypersensitivities.


Food allergies are common cause of itch and atopic dermatitis is dogs. The aid for diagnosis or treatment of food allergy is a feeding of the affected dog with a novel protein diet or, recently, with a diet composed of hydrolyzed proteins with lower antigenicity. Indeed, hydrolyzed milk has been used for decades in babies with allergy to mother’s milk.

The goal of this study is to determine the clinical allergenicity of hydrolyzed chicken feather diet, Anallergenic, in dogs with proven chicken-induced cutaneous adverse food reactions. The results will be compared to the allergenicity of another hydrolyzed chicken diet (Hill’s z/d Ultra dry) in the same population of dogs.
