My Shih Tzu mixed breed has a chicken meat intolerance but he does not react to the chicken egg added to the Blue Buffalo canned beef stew he eats twice daily. Since I’m very anal about label reading, I find that chicken broth, chicken liver, and chicken egg are added to foods that are recommended for dogs with chicken intolerances. Does it have something to do with the meat proteins in muscle meat and nothing to do with the proteins in the egg or organ meats? This has me really scratching my head. Even his vet isn’t sure why this occurs the way it does.
Thanks for all your ideas.anonymousMember
Food allergies are rare and food sensitivities tend to fluctuate. That being said, the minute over processed amounts added to foods, dried egg, chicken fat, etc. May not affect a dog that has a “chicken meat intolerance”
Also, there is a lot of cross contamination that goes on in pet food manufacturing plants.
So, if you truly want to avoid certain ingredients/proteins, I would talk to your vet about a prescription/elimination diet.
Or, consider having more testing done by a specialist to clearly identify the problem.
Ps: Nutrisca Salmon and Chickpea has no chicken fat, just a dash of dried egg.
