Article name: Dry food or raw? Diet affects skin gene expression in both healthy and atopic dogs

Researcher: Johanna Anturaniemi from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Helsinki.

Raw food appeared to activate the skin’s immune system as well as the expression of genes that increase antioxidant production or have anti-inflammatory effects.
