It ain't rare that food allergies doesn't come along with environmental allergies."Years of studies confirm that some people who are allergic to pollen, especially grass, birch and ragweed, can have an allergic reaction to foods that have the same or similar protein. This has been labeled "oral allergy syndrome" and the body shows specific IgE to prove it. There is no reason to believe that a dog's reaction would be different. In fact, one case in Japan found that a dog allergic to the pollen from Japanese Cedars had oral allergy syndrome after ingesting tomatoes.There are some pollen and food cross reactivity connections that are good to keep in mind. For example, if your dog is allergic to grass and/or birch pollen, you probably don't want to feed legumes, nuts, apples, melon, stone fruits, celery, carrots, soybeans or strawberries. An allergy to ragweed would make you want to stay away from bananas and chamomille (including any shampoo or rinse with chamomile in it). It works the other way around as well. A dog that react to the foods noted above may also have an environmental allergy".Source: The Allergy Problem. Making Sense of Allergy Problems and Solutions for Your Adult Dog (booklet).
