Nancy, thank you for your feedback and we are thrilled to know that your dogs are enjoying our foods.Regarding your Doxie and her scratching. Beef can be an allergen causing protein for sensitive dogs. Thus, we would recommend feeding alternative proteins such as duck, venison, quail and pheasant. Due to the fact that these alternative proteins are less often used in commercial diets, we have experienced fewer allergic reactions, such as scratching, with animals fed more "exotic" sources of protein.In addition, certain pets require higher levels of omega 3 fatty acids. Thus, a small addition of cold water fish oil to the diet will be beneficial in reducing the inflammation that causes pets to itch.Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance and thank you for your continued support.
Jennifer Coates Allergies are a common problem for dogs
Duck jerky for dogs is harder to find than chicken jerky. Duck is a more expensive protein and more difficult to farm. Duck jerky treats made in the U.S. are available if you search around, however, and uck is considered a good choice for dogs with allergies, since few dogs have a reaction to the meat. However, duck has more calories and is higher in fat than chicken, so keep that in mind if your pooch is a bit on the rounder side.
Rodrigo and Scout do great on chicken eggs, turkey and duck.
If your dog has an allergic reaction to a certain meat, you may want to try a food with a new protein source - new to your dog, that is - such as egg, duck, salmon, lamb, venison or whitefish. If none of this helps, your dog may be allergic to all of these proteins and will need a food with specially broken-down proteins. For accurate diagnosis and treatment options, always consult your veterinarian and ask them to recommend the best food for your dog’s food allergies
