Thread: Single protein source

  1. #1

    Default Single protein source

    Went to a new vet today as Porkchop has a mystery itch. The vet said that it may be an allergy and we should try a change of food. He's eating Fromm Chicken ala Veg. The vet said a high quality food that has a single protein source would be best so we can then try different protein sources to see what works for Porky. She said rabbit, venison, kangaroo, etc would be fine. I cannot seem to find any foods with a single source of protein. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Fish would be my last choice due to the odor.

    Earthborn Holistic has single protein foods that you can get regular or grain free in. I have Lola and Lucy on the venison kind and they love it. I was on Fromm but I do have to say I like earthborn a lot! There are several people on here that use it as well and have gotten great results!

    Well..tons of Bully's have problems with chicken so I'm not surprised. Try Fromm's Beef Fritatta..Fromm is excellent and beef is a pretty safe protein. Do a slow switch still..because the Fromm beef is grain free and I think (?) the one he was on isn't.

    Jake is on Earthborne Great Plains Feast..it's Bison as the protein.

    Thanks for the response & I'm glad Earthborn Holistic works well for your guys, but the ingredients for Earthborn Holistic Great Plains Feast says it has bison meal and lamb meal. Where do you get the venison single protein? I can't seem to find it.

    My female Blossom is allergic to chicken, salmon, grains and corn, so we switched to Fromms Beef Frittata, 5 months ago and she is doing really well on this food.

    Did you check the Beef Fritatta? I think it's just beef but its been awhile since I used it.
    @cowsmom can give you some other choices too!

    I would certainly recommend at least trying a different version of Fromm before doing a full switch. The beef frittata I think has only beef-- no chicken in it.

    If that does not work I would try natures variety limited ingredient diets. There is either lamb or turkey. I wish they would come up with more!

    Raven is eating MerricksB4 Grain in pork flavor. I tried a couple other high quality foods but they had chicken in them which made her itch. The vet said it is great that a company has made a pork food because that is the one food that won't cause allergies. Good luck finding something that works.

    Vet said anything but poultry. She did mention rabbit more than once. I'll look into Fromm beef frittata. I like the brand, and changing to another Fromm is supposed to be easy.

    Fromm beef frittata has both beef & pork.
