    Oh Mack is allergic to potatos too! I have to say that NB LID has been good to Mocha. But Mocha is not allergic to Potatos.She is allergic to chicken.

    You guys have been a great help. @LisaMarie the potato allergy pretty much rules out Natural Balance.

    @Fontanafox you are right, food issues are a royal pain!

    Earthborn Holistic Great Plains and their Meadow Feast look like they'll work along with Natures Variety Limited ingredient Lamb.

    Thanks for the help with this.

    @JAKEISGREAT I just ordered NVI Limited ingredient Lamb from petflow. The protein is 29% which should be okay. If that doesn't work I'll try Earthborn Great Plains! Thank you so much for your help!

    @Maximus thanks for the reassurance; the other foods have such a high protein % I was afraid of them. Mack is eight and a half!

    Oh poor Mack. So glad you got the test done. I did it for Wilson and will redo it in a year or so as he grows up. He's highly allergic to chicken. Finding the right food is a pain alrighty. I've learned so much but I still have so much more to learn. Wilson's on his third food change already. He's doing pretty good now and he's watery eyes have tamed down quite a bit over the last few weeks to my surprise since he's finished his transition.

    Keep us posted. What kind of problems was Mack having before? I may have just missed it if you already posted it.

    HOLY COW.... thank goodness you did the test --- guess he will be having steak for dinner every night and salmon for breakfast!

    I would avoid both brown/white rice and white/sweet potato.
