20 Best Dog Foods for Staffordshire Bull Terrier with Allergies

My staffy girl has awful allergies! Both food & environmental. She’s now on grain free food, low carb, fresh meat, salmon, venison, chicken, some beef. Baths, baths & more baths with treatment regiments. It has finally started working after trying so many different things to stop the scratching and redness & sore places. We felt so bad for her. Thankful we found a solution for our girl! It was driving us crazy! Another thing that works well for yeast between their toes from the grass is apple cider vinegar with Mother. One part apple cider vinegar with two parts water. The acid neutralizes the yeast and stops the growth. Spray on their paws with extra attention in between the toes. You’ll be shocked how quick it works. * Only use apple cider vinegar with MOTHER.

We use Orijens fit and trim. Have tried so many others but this has put all Buddys little problems to bed. He has a very sensitive tummy windy occasionally sick itchy skin and his ears would flare up every couple weeks.Having been neutered would be prone to gain weight if too many snacks were given and his seasonal aleopicia hasn’t come back. He’s been on it for 12 months. Granted a little expensive (12kg for £95) but his health and happiness are more important.

I have said this before, that a very lovely Vet told me that Staffies have a mild tummy reaction to various food stuffs and that, of all the cooked meats, TURKEY IS BEST, so I give her turkey-based dog food and roasted turkey…she likes tinned salmon (and smoked) and those, alongside WAGG chicken biscuits seems to be her very best happy and healthy

My staffy use to have really bad allergies, she was covered in lumps . I use to make all her own food thinking i was doing the right thing. Once i changed to Ivory coat Grain free salmon and ocean fish and for her meat i buy a SK- d salmon and tapioca roll. Amazing the difference , no lumps and bumps anymore .I was told a lot of dogs have allergies to chicken and in most products they have chicken bye products in them even if not labeled chicken .

Taste of the Wild- Salmon No Soy. No grain. No chicken products… No more rashes! I fed it to my other Staffy too for the same reason… she was allergic to everything and it’s the only food I could find that she could tolerate!

Acana, limit ingredient lamb and Okanagan apple. I tried ALOT of different brands and proteins. Finally I work at petsmart and we sell an allergy testing kit so I did that and it showed me what Duke was allergic too and safe foods for him… did you know dogs can be allergic to rosemary and in 95% of food I have found the that are limited diet have rosemary extract. Frustrating.

We have been using Orjien but it has just been brought out by MARS So we are moving to Carnilove true fresh I think. Its hypoallergenic, has a great meat content and it contains raw ingredients which is why we moved to the Origin. I would prefer a full raw diet but mine are picky. Raw is miles better fully hypoallergenic and single proteins are avaible in makes like Benyfit wilsons paleo ridge

The honest kitchen. I gave my boy the dehydrated food and he was obsessed! Great digestion and helped with every health issue. The grain free formula is and has always been safe as it has taurine. Highly recommended!

Dr. Harvey’s Raw Vibrance. No grain, no preservatives, no chemicals and I add the meat (protein) so I don’t have to worry about chicken getting in their food. Go to their website and read up on it. My dog, Buddy from the page Loving Buddy is very allergic to chicken and grain. He was a torture victim and has a very sensitive digestive system. Feeding him this and I don’t need to worry about him having a tummy ache.
