    Question Best food for newly diagnosed food allergies

    Hi everyone! My 3 yr old (Lexie) recently was diagnosed with a bunch of things and some of those allergies are to food. She is currently on Purina one lamb and rice but I now have to change that bc she is allergic to both lamb and rice along with venison, poultry mix, eggs, fish mix and brewers yeast. Any advice on what is the best food for skin and food allergies? Also this may be a silly question but what exactly does poultry mix and fish mix mean? She’s not allergic to salmon or chicken so I was confused the whole poultry and fish mix stuff. Many thanks for any input anyone had!!

    Thanks for the input. I’m nervous about the duck though, wouldn’t that fall under the “poultry mix”? Lol

    Nope...you got it! A protein that is not common like chicken, turkey, beef, etc.

    Zignature has a quite a few novel proteins and is a good quality kibble.

    I have recently put Buster on Zignature Catfish, so far so good. Monty was on the Duck and did great but it made Buster gassy! These dogs! Zignature does not contain a lot of common allergens and is supposed to be a good food for dogs with allergies. As always it is finding the protein that suites them best and luckily they have a good selection to choose from.

    Ladies got you cover on novel protein....(NEW PROTEIN)


    But your issue is Purina One. Anything from purina, science hill or royal Canin is to be avoided

    This is what you’re feed n why you have issue...

    Lamb (source of glucosamine), rice flour, whole grain corn, whole grain wheat, chicken by-product meal (source of glucosamine), corn gluten meal, soybean meal, beef fat naturally preserved with mixed-tocopherols, mono and dicalcium phosphate, glycerin, calcium carbonate, liver flavour, salt, caramel colour, potassium chloride, dried carrots, dried peas,

    The ONLY thing that’ good in that bag is the lamb. That’s it! The rest is why all the allergies. Anything that says By Product, absolutely avoid.

    Like mentioned, stick to Acana, Zignature Fromm. Since he has all allergies, by the single protein bags. After each bag get another different protein. Like that it will be easier to eliminate the allergy.

    So I ended up going with Natural Balance grain free salmon and sweet potato, I also got a can of wet food from natural balance also of the duck & potato so I’m hoping that was the right choice. She can’t have chicken, Turkey, venison Or anything with rice or eggs, so I felt like my choices are limited. She did start her allergy shots last Saturday or I’m hoping in 6 months or so she should start getting better. Fingers crossed!

    Dried Sweet Potatoes, Salmon, Fish Meal, Potato Protein, Canola Oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols), Natural Flavor, Potato Fiber...

    Keep an eye on the potato as aside from sweet potato, white potatoes are mentioned 2x...

    BTW it’s only 3.5 stars. https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/
