A good friend of mine had her dog tested for allergies and she came back with allergies to

Barley, Lamb, Brewers Yeast, Rice, Carrots, Poultry, Corn and Eggs. Feeding raw is not an option for my friend. Any good foods that you know of that this little girl can eat?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Eagle Holistic - all have rice

Premium Edge - has barley

California natural - has barley

Fromm Family Foods - has barley, rice and eggs

 

I'm at the end of my brainstorming. I'll need to go review the latest Whole Dog Journal to review more manufacturers. But it might be easiest to home cook for the dog. There are some great articles in Whole Dog Journal. PM me your email address and I can send you a copy of it.

 

I am surprised we have come up with 3! That is an awful list.

I know! If the dog doesn't like fish, she's really out of luck.

 

Also, if you have difficult finding these brands in your area. Contact the manufacturer directly to find out which distributor carries their product, then contact the distributor to determine if this distributor makes deliveries to a local store near you and see if you can get the local store to let you order the specific brand of food you want through them. The distributor won't sell to you directly, but if they know their customer (i.e. the stores) then they should be able to get you in touch with the store owner that would be open to the idea of special ordering the food for you.

 

Good luck!

Thank you all very much. Also hitting myself up against the head because I get the WDJ and didn't think to look there.

I will pass your information on to my friend.

Thanks again,

Sheila

Venison, Beef and/or buffalo. someone makes kangaroo I think. um....potato for carbs. even sweet potato - more fiber over regular potato. Mind you all the brands that make these escape me right now...

Even though the list says "poultry" (don't they give you specific proteins in the allergy test results?) I would be tempted to try duck. It's a dark meat and very different from chicken and turkey, which were specifically bred to be white and mild tasting for human palates. So the dog may have a different reaction to duck than chicken/turkey.

Wow, that is tough. I think if it were me I'd be going with something home-cooked but even that would be hard!

That's a tough list. The rice makes things especially hard--I know because of Edie.

 

Anyway, I don't know if your friend can find it where she lives, but there's a Canadian brand called Go Natural; the Salmon + Oatmeal would work Site:

 

Salmon Meal, Salmon, Oatmeal, Whole Oats, Canola Oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols (vit. E), Oat fiber, Inulin (FOS), Mannanoligosaccharides (MOS), Yucca Schidigera, Vitamin A Acetate, Cholecalciferol (vit. D3), dl Alpha Tocopherol Acetate (vit. E), Ferrous Sulfate, *Zinc Proteinate, Zinc Oxide, Ascorbic Acid (vit. C), Niacin, Calcium Pantothenate, Copper Sulfate, *Copper Proteinate, Manganous Oxide, *Manganese Proteinate, Riboflavin, Calcium Iodate, Thiamine Mononitrate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (vit. B6), Folic Acid, Biotin, Sodium Selenite, Cobalt Carbonate, Vitamin K, Vitamin B12

 

Also, prescription foods like IVD's Potato and Venison, which Minnie was on until the company stopped selling it in Canada.

 

ETA: I have all my girls on Go Natural Salmon, and it seems to be an excellent food.
