I have a japanese chin that is getting hot spots from Canidae. I now suspect it’s too much protein for her. She’s been on foods anywhere from 24-26% protein and suffers. I want her on a 4-5 star food, but none of them go much lower than 24%. Any suggestions? I don’t know—maybe it’s the grain??
I would try higher protein and grain free first. I would also try probiotics as they help balance the bacteria in the body. Hopefully someone else will have some ideas for you.
She can be reacting to any ingredient in the Canidae, whether it’s the type of protein or the veggies or other ingredient like gluten, not necessarily the % of protein. Are you feeding grain free Canidae or regular Canidae?
I’ve never heard of hot spots being caused by higher protein.
