Linda Kubilius on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods My Teddy Bear has allergies too. I tried him on home cooked chicken & rice with special herbs & vitamins to find out he was alerigic to chicken. Got hot spots from it and broke out so bad. So I need a food for pancretiatitis and allergies to chicken! And now my vet wants me to feed him this dry dog food,,which he has little teeth that's called Purina HA Hydrolyzed chicken flavor????? So, I'm kinda freaking right now. Don't know what to feed him at this point. Oh, and first ingredient in…March 6, 2015 7:00 pm

Kirk on Dog Food Allergies Eliminate all other treat items too? Yes, tried that.March 6, 2015 6:42 pm
GSDsForever on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods Perhaps you could post this in the forums section, as it seems to be about specific health problems other than allergies (and not hypoallergenic diets)?
I'm confident you would get some good help & advice there, as there are a lot of tiny dog people on DFA & who raw feed. (Your vet is referring to "salmonella" in relation to raw.).
Unfortunately I am not very knowledgeable about Yorkies/tiny dogs, pancreatitis, tooth loss & decay in toy breeds, etc. to be much help to you.March 6, 2015 6:40 pm
GSDsForever on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods Nature's Variety has insisted to me that there is no soy in any of their formulas.
I explained that that is precisely the problem & have now sent an email of the journal article, Journal of Animal Physiology & Animal Nutrition (also cited in Muller & Kirk's Small Animal Dermatology), showing a contaminated formula from NV, with SOY.
I will await the email back from NV addressing what happened and how it will be prevented in the future.March 6, 2015 6:34 pm
Linda Kubilius on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods My Yorkie will be 12 in June, and he had pancretitis about a half a year ago. Well, the vet put him on Hills prescription diet I/D low fat. His pancreatis level were 680 now there 730. So... I guess that's not working??? I've run out of food and home cooked food and everything I could do for my little man. I told my vet I was going to do the raw diet and he said he can get semenilla??? Ugggg,,,, Im lost, can anybody tell me what I can feed my little man. He has a lot of teeth loss, so has to be…March 6, 2015 6:33 pm

GSDsForever on Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods Thanks, aimee.
So far I have not heard back from Great Life, but will post when I do from either GL or Nature's Variety.
I can only recall people on DFA critical of Great Life for not listing the meat ingredient as dried/dehydrated (vs with water weight) on labels. But I don't know -- playing the skeptic here, as well as giving a company benefit of doubt -- that that is something required and understood to be required. Apparently human foods including whole eggs do NOT have to list them as…March 6, 2015 6:27 pm
ali on Pure Balance Dog Food (Dry) I posted 9 days ago about how great my beagle mix was doing on PB but please do not give your dog this. My dog started to dirrahea blood and vomit blood and is now at the ER and was diagnosed with HGE. Now that I see the reviews from others I am saddened bc I was only trying to help my dog and I almost killed her. Will only be making my dogs food from now on.March 6, 2015 6:26 pm

LabsRawesome on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) That would make me think that pork fat might be one of the ingredients occasionally, but not exclusively. Because if they were only using pork, they would say pork fat, instead of animal.March 6, 2015 5:28 pm
sandy on Off Topic Discussions You want to look for the AAFCO nutritional adequacy statement usually on the back of the bag. Some will say if a dog food is formulated for a certain life stage. Some will say that the dog food has been substantiated using feeding trials for certain life stages.
And then you might want to research feeding trials.March 6, 2015 5:16 pm
Tanya Mitchell on Best 5-Star Dry Puppy Foods I am a first time puppy owner of a 2 month old yorkie. The food she was eating when I got her made her poop smell really bad so I took her to the vet. The vet said she is healthy and recommended royal canin specifically for yorkies. Unfortunately, her poop is still really strong for a puppy that is only 1.9lbs so Im starting to think royal canin may not be as good as they said.March 6, 2015 4:53 pm
Melanie on 4Health Dog Food (Dry) Actually some nice lady named Sandy deleted it for me. You guys are all so nice on this site.March 6, 2015 4:43 pm
aimee on Are Dogs Carnivores — or Omnivores? I haven't read the full texts but from the abstracts of papers published by the authors: "a habitual diet based on home-made food (rich in beef and pork, and poor

Kim Benson-Custard on Are Dogs Carnivores — or Omnivores? I honestly never intended to start much of a discussion here. I just wanted people to recognize that dogs can survive and thrive on a veg diet. I have one dog who will eat anything, and one very picky dog. They love when I add beans or lentils to their food. They get excited about broccoli, and love peanut butter sweet potato snacks. They are far from deprived, and always get great check-ups. That's all I'm going to say because not only am I not a debater and I'm used to the world…March 6, 2015 3:15 pm
Storm's Mom on Dog Food Allergies Some dogs (like mine) are just fine with chicken fat (I've fed many different brands with chicken fat), but I give him anything with even a bit of "chicken" or chicken meal (as I inadvertently did on one occasion after we discovered his trigger) and he's a scratching, scooting mess :-( Other dogs can't even have chicken fat without triggering a reaction. Hence the "disagreement" that GSDsForever mentioned (although, it's not so much a difference of opinion as it is of having a different…March 6, 2015 2:50 pm
Crazy4dogs on Best Dry Grain Free Dog Foods Dori & the BCnut are right. Kibble can't be made without carbohydrates. It's the binder that holds kibble together. I know from past feeding that Evo used to be one of the lowest carbohydrate foods. The problem was that by the time you got towards the end of the bag it would be mostly crumbs. Feeding a fresh or raw diet would probably be your best choice. I rotate my dogs and often give them fresh human meat and mix it up with some Honest Kitchen, Grandma Lucy's or Sojo's premix. That…March 6, 2015 2:37 pm
GSDsForever on Best Dry Grain Free Dog Foods Thanks, Mike!
As I've said I greatly appreciate all the time consuming and hard work that goes into this site, which is such a great resource to all.
I know nothing like this would ever be intentional. I treat everything from you as produced/written in good faith. (And I would advise others visiting DFA to do the same.)
Hey, thanks for the info on the contact us/new formula form. I had no idea! Cool.March 6, 2015 2:35 pm
GSDsForever on Dog Food Allergies I went through this food allergy stuff with a dog before, where one simple switch from from chicken formula to fish, same brand, worked. Re-challenged any tiny amount of chicken caused allergic reaction.
Now I may have to try a novel protein/novel carb limited ingredient diet with a dog that has pretty much had everything out there, making it a bit more challenging. And we're not even sure she does have a food allergy! It's been a process of eliminating other possible causes for her symptoms.…March 6, 2015 2:29 pm
Mike Sagman on TimberWolf Platinum (Dry) Thanks for your comment. I have responded to your comment on the Best Dry Dog Foods thread. Just click the following link to read it:
Please take a moment to visit the "Contact Us" page and send us a message to report any recipe change you happen to find on any review on this website. That…March 6, 2015 2:25 pm
GSDsForever on Dog Food Allergies You're welcome. Then in this case, where a dog might have multiple allergies or intolerances or you are unsure, your best bet would be the novel protein/novel carb limited ingredient diet.
You need to specifically pick a meat/protein and a carb that YOUR dog has not eaten before. Those listed above were the most common allergies when studied, but primarily reflect being the most common foods fed to dogs. And ingredients change . . . now peas/other legumes for example are becoming more common…March 6, 2015 2:23 pm
GSDsForever on Best Dry Grain Free Dog Foods My humblest apologies, Mike.
I know how hard it can be to keep up with all the dog foods out there covered by this site and appreciate all the work that goes into it.
I wasn't intentionally or knowingly making any assumptions.
I just happen to visit the website often (same for other foods I like) and have bags on hand often. It's just not something I've seen missing in my own visits or been unable to find before when looking. But who knows? I would certainly grant benefit of the doubt to…March 6, 2015 2:09 pm
Kirk on Dog Food Allergies Thanks for the info. Using a limited ingredient dry food now (Lamb & Brown Rice), and still having problems, so was looking for something completely without the common
allergy causing ingredients.March 6, 2015 2:02 pm
GSDsForever on Off Topic Discussions I don't believe -- someone correct me if I'm mistaken -- that is one of the criteria DFA/Mike uses to evaluate, categorize, and rate foods here or tracked.
But it can be part of your criteria, and I know that for example Timberwolf and Fromm (for just two examples I know for sure) as 5 star foods have.March 6, 2015 2:00 pm
Mike Sagman on Best Dry Grain Free Dog Foods As Storm's Mom remarked, this is only a tagging error. In order for any product to show up on any sorted list, it must first be tagged. We sometimes inadvertently fail to add an appropriate tag to a review.
Also, as I have stated many times before, we do not monitor every one of the more than 4,100 recipes maintained in our database.
Since pet food companies rarely let us (or anyone else) know when they make changes, we must also rely on tips we get from readers.
In any case, it is our goal…March 6, 2015 1:58 pm
Dori on Are Dogs Carnivores — or Omnivores? Aimee. Was that study dry beef diets vs dry poultry diets? Just curious. I'd love to read it if you can post the link. As you may be aware Hannah was diagnosed with bladder cancer and a mass on the lobe of a lung. Thanks much.March 6, 2015 1:49 pm
GSDsForever on Dog Food Allergies There is disagreement here over all of that.
The recommended course when the allergy is not known is a novel protein limited ingredient diet.
When it is known that a dog has a chicken allergy, as mine had, I was advised to avoid ALL chicken ingredients and I did, with great success. To me that seemed to be the most sensible, logical way to go -- since dogs have no special need to eat chicken.
Re chicken fat in particular -- depends on how refined/clarified it is (like clarified…March 6, 2015 1:48 pm
Mike Sagman on Best Dry Grain Free Dog Foods You are making the erroneous assumption that the website in question includes exactly the same information it did on the date we last visited it.
Please note the "Last Update" (found near the end of every review) for Timberwolf Platinum was logged as 8/8/2014. And that was over 6 months ago.

GSDsForever on Are Dogs Carnivores — or Omnivores? It would be interesting to see whether that includes red meats from grass fed/pastured free range game.March 6, 2015 1:40 pm
Onyx on Off Topic Discussions I have a question, how many of the food you give a 5 star rating to go through food feeding trials?March 6, 2015 1:36 pm
GSDsForever on Are Dogs Carnivores — or Omnivores? A well designed homemade vegetarian diet would be a better choice for your dog.
Yes, it would need to be balanced. You can do that with either the help of a vet nutritionist like DVM DACVN Susan Wynn (who might be an especially good choice for you, given your interest in protecting against cancer & promoting a strong immune system) consulting with your vet long distance OR through a vet school nutrition & balanced diets book, like UC Davis/DVM Donald Strombeck's Home Prepared Dog &…March 6, 2015 1:29 pm
DogFoodie on Off Topic Discussions Hmmm... very interesting!!March 6, 2015 1:11 pm
GSDsForever on Are Dogs Carnivores — or Omnivores? As a vegetarian and one who is fine with feeding a vegetarian diet (a good one) to a dog, I have to agree with aquariangt on this comment.
And, actually, I feel it is important, given the statements Kim has made above and my knowledge & experience with dogs with cancer, to state that while many, many wholesome vegetarian ingredients are powerfully anti-cancer and a vegetarian diet or an almost vegetarian diet with fish can be cancer preventative --
When a dog actually HAS cancer, the gold…March 6, 2015 1:09 pm

Not to be gross, but it literally just came out whole & unchanged at the other end. Brown rice, barley,…March 6, 2015 12:47 pm

GSDsForever on Grandma Lucy’s Pureformance (Freeze-Dried) Thank you very much, aimee. And I agree with you about all the above concerns.
I had just happened to see that this brand was another to offer rabbit and bison/buffalo and was curious about it, had heard it mentioned around here, but never looked at the brand.March 6, 2015 12:33 pm
GSDsForever on TimberWolf Platinum (Dry) p.s. Whenever you are revising/updating this page, there are 7 Platinum formulas, including the Dakota Bison formula (Bison/Beef), which was the last to be reformulated to fit within the Platinum line as higher protein and grain free.

GSDsForever on TimberWolf Platinum (Dry) Mike,
Please see this thread on the best grain free dry foods page:
Thanks to Storm's Mom for catching this & directing my attention to your statement above, as a possible explanation for it being left off both the best puppy dry foods AND the best grain free dry foods, despite a 5 Star rating on DFA:

GSDsForever on Best Dry Grain Free Dog Foods Regarding grain free, it may be helpful for some on a budget or wanting a little less protein to know also that the Ocean Blue Classic/Original formula is also grain free as it always has been, in addition to the Platinum line. And both Ocean Blue formulas are exclusively fish based.
The Classic/Original line is less expensive & moderate protein (26-28% generally), while the Platinum is high protein (34-35%) along with being all grain free.March 6, 2015 11:51 am

Kirk on Dog Food Allergies I want to test out other foods to try to address my dog's allergies, but I notice that all the Suggested Hypoallergenic Dog Foods include chicken or chicken fat and chicken is listed as a common source of allergy.

GSDsForever on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) Labs, what do you make of brands that claim they are using one specific animal for the fat, like pork fat, but putting generic "animal fat" on the label?
Aimee says that that is what Iams claims for its novel protein vet diet, oats & kangaroo formula -- that the listed "animal fat" is simply pork fat.
My question to her was (and would be to a company) if they have nothing to hide and are committed to using just one named animal source for it, then why put something vague like "animal fat"?March 6, 2015 11:16 am
GSDsForever on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) No, it is comparatively cheap compared to nearly all premium & grain free dog foods and therefore widely regarded as cheap, a budget choice. Anything in that category that is less than a $1 a pound is comparatively inexpensive, and this goes as low as about 67 cents/lb.
That is why some breeders and rescues dealing with lots of mouths to feed also feed it.
Diamond has huge buying power already (like the Walmart of the dog food manufacturers), which is why all of its brands are lower…March 6, 2015 11:06 am
Storm's Mom on Best Dry Grain Free Dog Foods The Timberwolf Platinum line review says "However, since we’re unable to locate AAFCO nutritional adequacy statements for these dog foods on the product’s web page, it’s impossible for us to report specific life stage recommendations for these recipes."
This is likely why it doesn't appear on the best puppy food list page.
Not sure why it doesn't appear on the Grain-Free list...probably just a tagging error, or there's an ingredient I'm just not seeing that takes it off the grain-free list.…March 6, 2015 11:01 am

Dori on 4Health Dog Food (Dry) Boy, isn't that the truth. Between the Beneful posts and the Propylene Glycol thread things seemed to be going quite down hill and yeah, let's not even mention the 4Health thread. I pity anyone trying to get info on 4Health.
