Hi All! Doing the research to start my pups on a raw diet! My GSP/Pit Bull mix, Keisel, has had an allergy to chicken since we adopted him as a pup. Has anyone noticed that perhaps chicken allergies are only to the chicken in kibble or all chicken in general? Might be a dumb question? Haha, but I wasn’t sure if fresh/raw might be different than processed.
Hope that makes sense! Thank you!theBCnutMember
Some dogs are allergic to only chicken muscle meat, others to chicken bone, others to everything chicken. Try turkey instead.aimeeParticipant
It is a very good question. Proteins are changed when heated so it is thought that a dog could react to a cooked/processed protein but not to the same protein raw. On the flip side if exposed to raw only the dog may react to the protein when raw but not cooked.InkedMarieMember
I have a dog who didnt do well with chicken kibble. He is on raw jow & he can have a little chicken.Vanessa KMember
Thank you so much for the feedback! I will start him out small for a few days and monitor his skin. Thank you again.
