I thought that it would be cool to start a food thread for the dogs with food allergies. What foods work for you guys?

Storm is having great luck with Wellness Super5Mix Lamb formula. It isn't a single-protien (it has fish in it, too) but he is itching far less and he actually eats it regularly!

Hi Storm, thanks for starting the thread.
I have tried several. I am back to Hill's Z/D allergen free. It's what works best for me. I can get it dry and in a can. I have tried Lamb and rice....it makes me itch and I have tried venison and potato and it made me sick. I eat the Hill's well and it really is yummy not to mention mommy can make my good girl cookies from it as I can not have treats. It really has helped cut down on the itching. Of course with Spring here I am itchy anyway.

I'm doing GREAT with Purina Benefel Healthy Radiance (the one for healthy skin). I have a before picture (before I got on Beneful) posted on my personal page (it's my last picture). It's quite a difference from my newer pictures!

Tuesday, I've tried a few as well. My Person switched me over from the Iams that my foster mom was feeding me to Royal Canin Maxi as soon as I was home - but I was still itching because of the chicken. I then tried Natural Balance Duck and Potato, which helped a little, but I was still itching/licking a bit and the food gave me a funny smell. That's when we switched to the Wellness food I'm on, which is entirely poultry-free.

Daisy - what were you on before you tried Purina?

Well, my mommy and daddy are far from rich, so we got real cheap food.

I was on Old Roy, and then they switched us to Dad's. Both were bad, Old Roy being the worst though and gave us all really bad stinkies.

Food can really make a BIG difference. How are you doing on your new food?

Hi Guys,

I have been tichy too! and have yuk in my ears ALLERGIES! I am still a pup, but Mom is trying to find a food to suite me. Today we bought a small bag of the Natural Balance Duck&Potato. I see that Storm said that it makes him stinky???? I'm just hoping that I like it and that it sits well with me...I'm a little bit of a picky eater too. My allergies aren't bad (pretty mild so far), but we would rather find a solution early on.

Hey, Zero!

I know that different foods can affect different dogs differently - especially when dealing with allergies! Go ahead and give it a shot - it may be your miracle food. smile

Tuesday, was that question to me? BOL!

So far, so good. He's having no problems with his back and butt - no more open wounds! - and, despite our previous vet's doubts, his anal glad problem has gone away due to the food change...

I do still see him scratching around his ears a little more than I'd like, though. I don't know whether I'm being overly sensitive but, thus far, my instincts haven't steered me wrong. I read somewhere that wheat allergies can lead to ear problems. Have you (or anyone else here!) heard of that?

Merry- Christmas!

Have I heard of that? I can't be for certain but I do get ear infections about 1 a month. The vet thinks it's allergies. But I will say, I haven't have one in a couple of months. I have also had tonsillitis! Again they think from allergies. My vet says no wheat, no whey, no flour & try brown rice products not white rice. Of course that leaves pretty much nothing!! I'm doing okay. I saw him today, I got a shot mostley becasue of things in the air....you know seasonal stuff. Anyway, he said I looked great and compared to some of his poor doggies I don't even look like I have allergies at all. So I really feel bad for you all that are so terrible, miserable and....bleeding. Yikes! I can't imagine.
