A diagnosis of food allergy was made in eighteen dogs after they were fed on a hypoallergenic diet of lambs meat and rice. The skin complaints returned after the dogs were challenged with the original food. A commercial hypoallergenic diet was given once the skin complaints had disappeared after refeeding of the lamb and rice diet. Six of the eighteen dogs developed skin complaints (pruritus, scaly skin, and erythema) on the commercial diet.
