What is the procedure for finding a hypersensitivity using TROVET Unique Protein in dogs?
The diagnosis of food hypersensitivity will be done by your veterinarian with the help of a so called elimination diet. For 6 to 8 weeks your dog has to eat a special composed diet. This diet consists of one (unique) protein source and one carbohydrate source. When the hypersensitivity reaction of your dog decreases during this period, it is safe to say your dog was hypersensitive to a specific ingredient.
For these cases TROVET has developed a special PURE MEAT range with unique protein sources, called TROVET Unique Protein. These products consist solely of meat and are guaranteed free of additives such as scent, colour, and taste enhancers. Unique Protein is not a complete food.
TROVET Unique Protein can be given as a sole food source for 6 to 8 weeks. After this period, the diet needs to be made complete with a carbohydrate source and a vitamin and mineral supplement (TROVET Balance).
TROVET Unique Protein is available with the following protein sources:
• TROVET Unique Protein (Lamb)
• TROVET Unique Protein (Rabbit)
• TROVET Unique Protein (Venison)
• TROVET Unique Protein (Turkey)
• TROVET Unique Protein (Horse)
• TROVET Unique Protein (Quail)
