    I've heard of a lot more allergy problems with potato, however some bullies do fine with it. Others are allergic to rice. There is no one magic formula.

    I've heard some have allergies to potatoes, I have given mine rice before with no problem.

    Nitschke was very allergic to rice.. vomit whenever he ate it. Banks seems to have issue with potatoe even though she is not allergic, she seems to get more red faced after eating it

    @LariP - I wish there were one magic formula! ha ha That would make it easier on a lot of us.

    @occfan - my dogs love rice. Last night they got a dollop of mashed sweet potatoes mixed in with their supper and they were in hog heaven. (I know. Naughty to give human food)

    @Vicaroo1000 the only magic formula is unconditional love to keep looking for a solution until everyone is happy and healthy. Oh and sweet potato is healthy until it's loaded with extra butter, marshmallow, brown sugar and cinnamon. Then maybe not so much.

    They are not related at all!!!! Sweet Potato is very good for bullies. Being allergic to one has nothing to do with the other.....
