    Please do not judge. Presently I have a Great Dane, 3yrs old she is my 6th, last 3 rescued. I got my last 5 from the same rescue the last 3 being full rescues not bred. The full rescues have all had severe health issues. Presently feeding the 3 yr old Evangers rabbit and pork, frog legs because I need only meats, no grains, potatoes, fish, chicken, beef, rice, egg, starches, etc but I am only finding Evangers to be the only source. She is autoimmune thyroiditis and autoimmune pemphigus hence the need for no grains/starches. I have been a reader for a while so I know all about Evangers but my baby needs to eat. Having the autoimmune pemphigus she needs 3 proteins in her diet to not become allergic. Recently we lost beef, in the past we have lost chicken, turkey, pheasant, duck, lamb. She is starting to react to the pork which makes me nervous. One of her thyroid meds is armor the other soloxine so it could be the constant armor that is causing the pork issues. Any and all help would greatly be appreciated, thank you!

    Hi Michelle- Wow, your dog makes my dogs skin problems look like nothing. I’m so sorry for what you are going through, but thank you for rescuing.

    Are you working with a specialist currently? If you are only working with your general vet I would highly suggest seeking out someone who specializes in nutrition or at least is familiar with whats going on with your dogs.

    Have you tried feeding raw/homemade? They offer venison meat and also cavie (guinea pig) and rabbit which could be options. HareToday offers these as grinds and you could work with a nutritionist to balance the meals. It might also be cheaper than feeding canned food and you would be able to completely tailor the diets to your needs.
