Does your pet have recurring or constant ear or skin trouble, such as redness, itching, or infection? Those are just some of the signs that can be associated with food allergy in pets. Learn more about common food allergies in dogs and cats and how they are diagnosed and treated at the UF Veterinary Hospitals from Dr. Ursula Oberkirchner, a board certified veterinary dermatologist.
