What dog food brands are best for dogs with allergies?
I have a dog that has a lot of allergies and I’m having trouble finding a dog food for him. He’s allergic to wheat, corn, soy, dairy, chicken and beef! And of course, it can’t be super expensive? I’m trying one, but it’s $90 for a 40# bag. I’m a nurse so I work about 50hrs/wk so I don’t have time to cook meals for him.
I have researched this in depth since my poor dog died of kidney failure due to poor quality dog food!! (this is the only reason I answer these questions … to try and save a dogs life or at least to not let him/her suffer because of bad food)
Fromm Dog Food is Great for dogs and cats …http://www.frommfamily.com/ $42- $45 per 30 lb bag
NO fillers….some good quality grains….NO corn….gluten or by-products or wheatNO BHT, BHA OR ETHOXYQUIN
ALL human grade food….fruits…veggies and probiotics!! WHOLE fruits and veggies!!!! Just like the kind we get at our grocery stores!MEATS ARE DEBONED BY HAND!!!! NOT BY A MACHINE
check it out you wont regret it ! FROMM 4 STAR product line is the best!!!!!!! FROMM is a 100% holistic dog food. FROMM also has a grain-free option called surf & turf. They have Duck & Sweet Potato, Salmon A La Veg, Whitefish & Potato and Pork & Applesauce.
TOTWhttp://www.tasteofthewildpetfood.com/ … has a high protein content (not recommeded for non athletic dogs) Some TOTW choices have lesser amounts of protein.
Taste of the Wild contains Ethoxyquin which is a toxic fish preservative. (TOTW says that the cooking process kills all of it but it scared me away from their product)
around $42 for a 30 lb bag …. Its the cheapest 6 star food ..
Remember : You get what you pay for. Keep in mind the top quality foods cost more but you feed less because there are no fillers or
unwanted ingredients. So in the long run you will be saving money with food and vet bills because your dog/cat will be healthier.
Http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/ lots of great dog food choices on this site !!(keep in mind this site rates on high protein and grain free foods)
Here are the best of the best:Fromm, Blue Buffalo, Canidae, Halo, Holistic Blend, Newmans Own Oranics, Wellness,
(all the above mentioned foods have ” ALL LIFE STAGES” formulas)
Orijen and Welness are great but it is $60 – $80 for a 30 lb bag… high protein as well ..not good for non athletic dogs Orijen is WAY to high in protein for a non working/non-agility dog ..
Fromm Is what my puppy gets it has a lower protein % and great ingredients! 5 outta 6 stars due to lower protein (but most dogs should not have high protein levels …. It makes their kidneys work overtime for no reason)
You can get it online and if you go to the website you can find stores near you .. They wont be at walmarts and the like… They are in feed stores .. Agway..tractor supply stores etc
IF your dog is not going to be a hard working/agility dog all this high protein can do more harm than good in the long run,,, you wont notice it now but it can take its toll on a dogs kidneys as it ages.
there is also a brand called 4health at the tractor supply store.. It is only $30 for a 35 lb bag.. And it seems to be of good quality. (not as good as the foods mentioned above but it good for the price if you are on a tight budget.)
It is very close in ingredients to the more expensive brandsCheck out the ingredients for yourself… no corn, wheat or soy.A Very good choice if you cant afford Fromm, Wellness, BB, TOTW, etc…etc.
Also if you go to http://www.tractorsupply.com you can get a printable $5 off coupon!!
(they have Blue Buffalo, TOTW and 4Health)
GOOD LUCK TO YOU AND YOUR FURRY FRIENDS!!!
How often should I switch DOG FOOD brands?? My pup is about 2 weeks away from finishing bag#1, Switch??
and I understand that if I switch her over the process of mixing it/etc portion by portion.
Im just curious, should I keep her on the same food????? Or switch her over to something else? Thanks
(PS, Halo is a great dog brand, its got all natural ingredients)
How old is your pup? I don’t recommend switching too often if your dog is under a year old.
I have a two year old Cairn. We rotate 3 high quality foods, every two months. (We transition her to the next food over a two week period.)
If Halo has more than one flavor, maybe you could just switch her to a different flavor for now.
What are some healthy dog food brands that my dog should try that will make him live long?
My dog doesn’t like his current dog food, but I don’t know what to give him that he will like. Please help me!
Most people don’t know, but the foods like Iams,Eukanuba, and Pedagree are cheap foods that have fillers in them. The more expencive isw usally better. You’ll be paying more but you’ll have your dog alot longer. Keep the same food and new food in the same bowl. Put more of the new food in over time. Also, your vet will tell you what dog food to get depending on what companies sponcer them. Most will lie because there told to by the sponcers so more people will buy the food. Good luck!
