We use Canidae grain-free, limited ingredient salmon and sweet potato. Along with chopped and steemed carrots, sweet potato, and peas that I add for supplement to each meal. This, along with a small dose of apoquel, really helped eliminate my 18 year old’s dermatitis.

We use Victor Ocean fish formula, I add a little bit of coconut oil to her breakfast and salmon oil with her dinner and it has helped her skin tremendously and her coat is so shiny and soft! Also the Victor food has helped a lot with some of her tummy issues

Homemade chicken and rice with vegetables mixed in. We also bathe them in Dawn. We stopped giving them hard food because Lola is the oldest and she has a hard time with it. What we do for one we do for all 3. Canned food has something in it that has made all 3 of them very sick. We’ve been on homemade for around 8 years now.

One of ours is allergic to corn and the other is allergic to most grasses…both get Blue Buffalo healthy weight and our girl with the grass allergies gets apoquel prescribed by our vet. Switching to Blue Buffalo, his skin looks like it should. He was in rough shape when we had him on Science Diet. Over 10 years on Blue!

RAW for meals….RAW for treats…goats milk, bone broth. Many pets are allergic to the sugars/fillers/starchs in most Kibble. Feeding a species appropriate diet such as RAW eliminates many allergies/digestive issues in our dogs and cats. I feed Steve’s Real Food, Primal bone broths, Answers goats milk and single source human grade freeze dried RAW treats ( pork liver, beef liver, hearts, etc..) WATCH PET FOOLED ON PRIME VIDEO. Great insight into the pet food industry. About kibble, about RAW, the whole shabang.
