    Default damn chicken!

    So we were in the process of changing Loki to salmon nutri source noticed a few gives this morning but nothing too bad. Well tonight after only giving him 1/2 a cup with 1 1/2 of his old food hives everywhere! He has maybe a cup total over the last 3 feedings. Looked at the ingredients second one listed chicken! Wtf it was supposed to be salmon! Looks like we need to try lamb meal which is salmon lamb and chicken fat for some reason the chicken fat doesn't bother him as it is in his current lamb formula food. So frustrating !

    Yep his seasonal allergies have been pretty good over the last few days so I know that's what it is. I should have known better and looked at the bag fully.

    Aww poor Loki, hope he feels better soon. It can be so frustrating to find a food they tolerate when they have allergies and sensitivities. I went through 4 food changes for Blossom before we tried the Fromms Beef, which she is doingbreally well on it, she is allergic to chicken and salmon, grains and corn. It's definetley trial and error, and when we find something that works, the best thing is to stick to it. I tried a few months ago to try the Fromms Duck and Turkey, and Blossom immediately showed signs of allergies, so I learned my lesson and will stick with what works for her. It must be even more frustrating when you buy something like salmon, thinking its a safe flavour choice, and then come to find out it contains chicken in the ingredients. Good luck and I hope you find something he can tolerate. Sending love, hugs and prayers your way.

    Crazy - baxter gets skin reactions to everything EXCEPT chicken. Maybe because his breeder feeds his generations nothing but chicken, so they're experts with it? He even gets red after a few days on beef.

    The whole food thing is incredibly frustrating on so many levels. Getting the good stuff, making certain it doesn't include things that make them itch AND...that they like to eat!It's worth it in the end...but wow, what a pain! Hope Loki Beans is feeling better now!

    Blue's also on a Salmon/Tuna formula but from Fromm.
    His itching stopped, and his ears are much cleaner now that he's on Salmon.

    Have you tried the Fromm? It also has chicken fat, and liver but they're listed as 10th and 11th on the ingredient list. Chicken Cartilage is 26 (there's 34 ingredients listed). They don't seem to be causing an issue aside from some redness still on his chin, but that could be caused by many things...

    We haven't tried any of the Fromm's food yet our pet store doesn't stock it, we are buying the small bags of food when we trying switching if it doesn't work we can return it for credit towards something that does work for him. Makes it a lot easier since we can go in the next morning. So far we know chicken is very bad for him, beef doesn't sit well and grain is also a no no. We put him back on the Lamb since he was ok with it but we arelooking for something to help with his yasty face mainly and to help reduce some of the shedding.

    I noticed with Rocco when he was on chicken flavored food he would have very loose stools. He seems to be great with beef. He has been on Fromm's Beef Frittata for over a month nowand h has been great on it. Luckily, there is a feed store fivemin from my house that carries it. You could check for the nearest distributor on their website and find it close by as I had no idea this place by me even sold pet food lol. Keep us posted on Loki's progress!!

    That's good to hear. I love Loki Beans. Have you ever tried to order from Petflow? They have great prices and deliver usually in a couple of days.
