Our Chow is allergic to anything that has feathers or beak, beef, lamb and potatoes. We rotate between kangaroo, venison, pork and rabbit. If giving kibble we stick to the Zignature brand and Go Sensitivities Limited Ingredient in the aforementioned proteins. This worked for us after trying so many brands.

Pork, salmon, duck…(that’s what our pup eats as he’s allergic to beef, chicken and turkey)

Try Nature’s Logic, but NOT the chicken, beef, or turkey. It doesn’t have rice or potatoes (too much carbs) but does add fruits and vegetables. Be sure to ease into any new food so it doesn’t upset tummy. We rotate between the sardine, salmon, lamb, pork. Also, be sure to leave out chicken and beef in treats.
