    Default Could Roxi be allergic to chicken???

    So after Roxi having another break out of hives early this week (another thread), I began looking for reasons as to why...
    Well, I took a glance at her food and chicken is one of the main ingredients!!! She has been eating
    Nature's Logic Salmon and Duck for the past month or so. I didn't even think about her food being an issue.
    I have a bag of the beef formula so I have been feeding her this for the past day.

    Suggestions?

    Also, the area where her hives were located (they are now scabbed over) the hair is now falling out like crazy!
    Normal?

    Roxi says, "hey!"

    Chicken is a pretty common allergen for bullies from what we have read, so yes that could have contributed to her problems.

    ABSOLUTELY!! My girl is allergic to Chicken... hives head to toe and eyes swell shut. Get you baby a full screen allergy test (simple bllod test) and you'll know for sure what is causing her issues.

    Moe is allergic to chicken also.... once I figured this out and switched to a non chicken food, all his issues (shits and skin issues) cleared up.

    Ok, this may be a silly question but could chicken fat and spray dried chicken liver cause issues as well? I know chicken meal is one of the main ingredients in the duck and salmon formula but chicken fat and spray dried chicken liver were listed too and they are listed within the first 10 ingredients in the other formulas also (all except the beef formula).

    Have any of you used Nature's Logic and experienced this?
    I know she has seasonal allergies but I'm beginning to wonder if there is something more going on

    I have been dealing with this too. I tried the Nature's Logic and towards the end of the bag he was so red on his tummy/face/toes, throwing up, and had blood in his soft serve stools. He is now eating Go Natural Salmon, which I thought was helping, but now he is showing allergic signs.

    @Sulley ... sounds like what we went thru with our boy till we finally did an allergy test (blood work runs about $150). He was throwing up and then refused to eat, red belly and chin. We were feeding chicken and rice (bland diet).. did the allergy test and we come to find out he is allergic to RICE. Once that was out of his diet - all issues went away. He is now 7 years young and doing awesome.

    usually chicken is enhanced and can create all sorts of problems,hair loss is normal for a dog with allergy ,we went through weeks of hair loss with annie ,could have made a rug with it!!!,her allergy is calming down now and i notice the shedding stopped a couple of days ago so that means whatever is bothering her is finally leaving her system,till next time lol,karen
