    Default Sweet Potatoes

    So it seems I know what Gia had an allergic reaction to....I think it was sweet potatoes. I dont think this is a common allergy only because it seems like alot of the grain free foods have sweet potatoes. Has anyone else found their bullys allergic to sweet potatoes??

    Mine do not but I have heard of sweet potatoes as being allergenic to some dogs. There's a lot of sugar in the potatoes and that can contribute to things like yeast infections.

    I hear everyone talk about Fromms but I cant find one without sweet potatoes and chicken. They all seem to have on or the other.

    If Gia can handle salmon, try the Salmon Tunalini. No sweet potatoes but it does have white potatoes.

    Finding the right food for your pup can be a struggle. Good luck

    @2BullyMama she will be 2 in May..she was fine up until about 6 months ago or so...I had her on Proplan shredded chicken from 6 weeks on. I tried Angel Eyes (sweet potato) for her tear stains as recommended by her groomer...WHAT A DISASTER) we used it twice.she had hives, lethargic, swollen ears..had to go to the vets and have a shot and go on steroids for a few weeks. Then I noticed her biting her paws. Typical sign of allergies so I switched from the chicken. Ive tried alot...best result so far was the Natural Balance Duck & Legumes. I wanted to try Blue Buffalo and chose the Lamb and Brown Rice..well two feedings and she was bright pink. I looked on the back and there is sweet potatoes!! So by process of elimination sweet potatoes are a NO. Its very hard to find a food without chicken or sweet potatoes for some reason they seem to have one or the other. I think shes ok with Salmon but I did try the Iams Ocean Fish and she got very pink.
