    Hi there. My son is allergic to some foods that are commonly found in dog foods. Meaning that if our puppy eats any of those allergens and there is any pet licking then my son has a reaction.

    I am trying to find a healthy large breed PUPPY food that does not contain peas, chickpeas, lentils.

    I have been searching specifically for a kibble. Right now we use royal canine large breed but are not in love with it. It calls for ya to feed him nearly six cups a day which seems like a lot!
    Thanks
    Jennifer

    I recommend Fromm large breed puppy. It doesn’t contain any of those things. However do keep in mind if you’re talking very very large breed puppy your going to be feeding a lot. Largebreeds are puppy’s for about 2 years and will need to be fed twice the amount an adult would. So let’s say you have a Dane and your Dane is already over 100 by a year and a half, you’re going to be feeding 4-6 cups depending on how large he is. But Fromm is always my first pick. What kind of puppy do you have? Also what is his weight. 6 cups does seem like a lot. On Royal canins website the only 6 cup weights I saw were 100 lbs at 6 months. Then after that the serving sizes get smaller as your dog matures more.

    Hi Jennifer-

    What about Royal Canin are you not liking besides how much you are feeding? They make some great large breed puppy foods. If you can tell me more about your dog I can help with why you are feeding so much. There is also a possibility that you are over feeding him.

    My favorite large breed puppy food is Pro Plan personally and it does not contain any of the ingredients your son is allergic to.

    Hi Jennifer,

    What about if you wipe around your pups mouth with a baby wipe after he has eaten, then keep him away from your son for 30-60mins, give your dog some water so he has a drink & washes the food out of mouth down into stomach, would this make a difference if he licks your boy?

    A Study found that children that grew up with a dog had a stronger immune system then children that didn’t have a dog… you can google it
