In our pack we have dogs allergic to certain grains and dogs allergic to certain meats, interestingly most of ours with issues are allergic or intolerant to grains than they are to meats.
We have seen genetic inheritance in allergies and intolerance to food types, so knowing the health history of parents, litter brothers and sisters can help when choosing the right diet for your dogs. Always ask the breeder if there are any issues you should know about. The right diet could save you a lot of money on vet bills.
The good thing about most of our kibbles is the fact that they are SINGLE SOURCE PROTEIN. No chicken or beef (meat or fat) hidden in our Salmon recipes. No Salmon or Salmon Oil in our Chicken or Turkey recipes (not all dogs are allergic to chicken!), it is what it says on the label. This makes it very easy to eliminate Protein Allergies and Intolerance.
Also our selection of Super Premium Hypoallergenic and Grain Free Recipes make it easy to eliminate Grain Allergies and Intolerance.
Finding the right food for your dog to thrive is not as difficult as you think:
1 Know what is in their food
2 Know what symptoms to look for:
Itching (aka pruritus)
Scaly and/or oily skin
Leathery skin texture
Secondary yeast or bacterial infections (aka pyoderma) of the skin or ears
Urine infections and cystitis
WHAT WE DO:
If your dog has symptoms begin to eliminate ingredients.
Firstly we recommend: Super Premium (Hypoallergenic) Salmon & Potato. Here you have eliminated Wheat, Rye, Barley and Gluten.
Still got symptoms try: Super Premium (Hypoallergenic) Duck and potato. Here you have eliminated Wheat, Rye, Barley and Gluten. Plus switched to a new protein source.
Still having issues: Try Grain Free Turkey, Sweet Potato and Cranberry. Here you have eliminated all grains, gluten and switched to a new protein source.
NB if you dog was originally experiencing symptoms while on a Turkey based recipe try one of the other flavours, we would recommend trying one of the fish recipes:
From here you can keep switching Protein Sources between the Grain Free Flavours to find one best suited to your dog…….. or like us just keep switching flavours to keep your dogs interested in their food and avoid the body developing Allergies (for us we avoid beef as one of our girls is allergic).
PLEASE NOTE: All our Grain Free Recipes have a less than 5% Legume Content
PS dont forget to check your dog treats for the ingredients you are trying to eliminate.
PSS Remember that some proteins can be found in vegetable so when doing an elimination diet we must also cut out all vegetables as treats.
Lastly we have the Super Premium Hypoallergenic Rice Recipes. These recipes do contain some grains but no Wheat, Rye and Barley, hence they are gluten free. Here you have eliminated all Potato and Sweet Potato, Wheat, Rye, Barley and Gluten.
We also sell Super Premium Hypoallergenic and Grain Free Cat Food.
