    Default Question about Hi-Tek ingredients

    I found Hi-Tek Naturals Grain Free Lamb Meal and Sweet Potato Formula on Amazon, 30 lbs. for $47.38, a real good price and the reviews are really good.

    Do these ingredients look good? Is lamb meal just as good as lamb?

    Lamb Meal, Sweet Potato, Potato, Peas, Pork Meal, Chicken Meal, Chicken Fat (Preserved withNatural Mixed Tocopherols), Duck Meal, Egg, Salmon Meal, Flaxseed, Sea Salt, Tomato, Blueberry,Raspberry, Choline Chloride, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Lactobacillus Acidophilus FermentationProduct, Lactobacillus Casei Fermentation Product, Bifido Bacterium Fermentation Product,Enterococcus Faecium Fermentation Product, Vitamin E Supplement, Biotin, Niacin Supplement,d-Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Acetate, Riboflavin (Source of Vitamin B2), Vitamin B12Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate (Source of Vitamin B5), Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Source ofVitamin B6), Citric Acid, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid, Ferrous Sulfate, Zinc Sulfate, ZincProteinate, Iron Proteinate, Zinc Oxide, Copper Sulfate, Manganese Proteinate, Copper Proteinate,Manganese Oxide, Sodium Selenite, Calcium Iodate.

    It looks like a fair food, it has a lot of potatoes in it however, so if you do try it keep a watch for yeast overgrowth. It is certainly not a bad food, and worth trying to see if it works with your bully.

    It also has chicken meal and chicken fat so if your bully is sensitive to chicken you will probably know within a couple of weeks or sooner.

    Let us know how it goes with this one.

    @cowsmom what do you think?

    Thanks for the reply! With that price I was thinking it was worth a try.

    So, Lucy started on the above Hi-Tech food about a month ago. I transitioned nice and slowly and she's just now getting only the new food and no more of the old one. Her coat looks absolutely fantastic and there is noticeably less shedding and hardly any flatulence. For the last 2 weeks or so though she's been licking her paws and there is a red raw patch between two of her toes. There are no cysts, just a small red area. Should I assume it's the food?
    Thanks!

    It is probably yeast from licking her paws. Could be the food, but could also be environment. Timing is right tho. Did she lick her paws before?

    No, she never did it while on any other food.

    oh my im sorry i missed this thread before. it looks like a good food but it does have lots of proteins that could be causing the problem of even the peas or potatoes. if she never did it before with any food id assume its the food but you could either do bland diet or put her back on her old food to know for sure. if u need more help just let me know.

    I'm just noticing that she has also developed red bumps on her chin that she never had before. Does this offer a clue as to whether the culprit is the chicken or the potatoes?

    it could be either but when my Lola had the same exact reactions we cut out chicken and she got better. you just have to cut it out and see if your pup gets better

    Thanks, April.

    I just checked the ingredients on all the foods she's been on since we got her and this is the only one that has chicken.

    Lola's cute!
