    Default allergy test results bad

    So we have 2 3 year old bullies and decided to foster one that came up from a rescue in North Carolina in bad shape. 80 lbs ( vet says he has to lose at least 20 ) and obvious allergy yeast issues. His name was Jojo but we changed it to Mojo ( He needs to get his Mojo back! ) We've had him for 3 weeks and just got his allergy test back...he is allergic to beef, chicken, turkey, lamb, liver,pork, potatoes brewers yeast, milk. Vet said to switch him to salmon but I am having a hard time finding a seafood protein WITHOUT all the other stuff especially chicken and potatoes almost all the foods seem to have some kind of chicken meal or potato. Anyone know of an appropriate food for him? They are all on acana pork and butternut squash now but the pork has to go...one of my other dogs has allergy to dairy and would love to keep them all on the same food...

    As a side note Mojo has started on Apoquel as is my other dog Caesar it works great. Vet also thinks he has enviromental allergies but since we are located in Massachusetts that could change for better or worse.

    Thank you so much for giving him a new caring/loving home...... I am going to tag a few people that can help with food, but my first thought is to look into The Honest Kitchen and call their customer service line they are amazing at helping with this type of stuff and lead you on which of their products would help best.

    Maybe try salmon a la veg by Fromm, it does have potato but it is further down the list and doesn't have any other of the ingredients.

    Four-Star Dry Recipes for Dogs - Fromm Family Foods

    That is just one I could think of off the top of my head closest to what you may be looking for. I trust fromm and would always recommend the best possible from their line above all others.

    You might want to check out Wellness CORE Grain Free Wild Game Adult Dog Food or they also have a Air dried Whitefish and salmon food.

    We have Goob on Nature's Variety Instinct Boost Venison and Lamb. This does have turkey in it but I think they also have a limited ingredient version with Lamb and Peas.

    Just as a warning...I have read on this forum for many members that their bullies don't tolerate lamb...just a caution. I really hope you find something that works for all your babies

    How about Acana Duck and Bartlett Pear Singles? Would that work for him? I have Monty on it now and so far, so good

    This one looks like a GREAT choice, with none of the ingredients you mentioned in it! Plus Acana is just awesome too.

    our abbey has same problem although she can have beef,,, and lamb.. she also is on apoquel and it works way better then the shots she was on for a year.. I feed her earthborn holistic the meadow feast but she can have lamb.. I do know there is a coastal grain free but it may have potato .. my abbey can't have potato or sweet potato either.. I was feeding her this until I realized it had potato although it did not seem to hurt her but I did switch just in case.. good luck I hope you can find something that works and bless you for giving mojo a good home and caring to help him get better..

    @jacquik I'm in Ma. also ! So awesome you're fostering Mojo! Have you considered raw? There are a few companies that deliver all up and down the coast if you're not comfortable doing it on your own.

    Acana is def a great kibble. If you want to stay on kibble try that in the Duck/Pear. However.... If he needs to lose weight Duck may not be the best because it's very rich. If he doesn't do well on kibble (like our Tyson) I would definitely look into The Honest Kitchen. We ended up there after we tried numerous kibbles. He's done wonderful on it. We do one their bases and add our own protein. It's great because you can control the protein! Keep us posted on his progress!!

    My dogs eat Orijen Six Fish. I don't know what other ingredients are in it, but they have done very well on it. I'll check the other ingredients if I can find an empty bag.
