Dog & Food Allergies

Have you guys tried Freshpet yet? My dog is in love with this brand!
I have a 75 pound Boxer and I buy him the Freshpet Select chicken, vegetable and rice slice and serve dog food. He goes absolutely nuts for it.


The best part is that with the all-natural ingredients that Freshpet uses, he doesn’t get sick. My dog is allergic to, well, seemingly everything. When I find something he can actually eat and not get sick, I will stick to it. The fact that he loves it so much is the icing on top of the cake.



Whether or not your dog has allergies, I recommend Freshpet’s food. It’s natural, healthy and I am sure that your pooch will love it as much as mine does!

No I was just wondering if anyone has ever used this brand of pet food. My dog loves it and I wanted to spread the word.

Be careful with chicken based foods and all foods using grain feed protein. The heavy use of grain as feed as mean your pet will be allergic to the protein as well. We only use grass fed free range food/treats with our dogs and their health has increased substantially.

Heard of this kind of stuffs many times. My vet says one should be also careful with chicken based foods or the foods which use grains. you have to feed them grass fed free range food to your dogs. The heavy use of grain will make your pet allergic of proteins.

Grain-Free best for Allergy prone Dogs

Not sure about the pet food mentioned. I agree with the overall premise though. If your dog is allergy-prone best to avoid all grain, including corn, rice, wheat, and soy. I'd suggest a good grain-free dog food, like Innova, Sunshine Farms, or Evo. I've used all three and find that these are good solid foods. My dogs do well on all of them. It may just be a price issue, some of these foods are very expensive.

After reviewing the site seems like a good food. In NZ I once found a food called Butch that was very similar. I think it's worth a try but must be pricey.

The best pet food is the one you can make yourself however some good commercial brands include evo, solid gold , royal canin etc.

Never heard of this brand yet. Your subject title is "Dog & food allergies", your dog got allergies before and it helps?

Also, watch what proteins you are giving your dogs. Over time they can become allergic to a food that they have been eating for years. Try feeding a novel protein (one that they haven't had before) and with little or no grains. For treats, give veggy's! There are some great diets out there as mentioned in earlier posts. Petcurean makes a few as well with great results for dogs with allergies. GO! Sensitivity + Shine Salmon and GO! Sensitivity + Shine Duck. The salmon has limited ingredients, and the duck has quinoa and kamut, both of these ancient grains contain no durim, with is the ingredient that causes allergies in other grains.

making food for your dog at home is the best option. you can include few biscuits or other dog treats on it. I am sure your dog would love it.

What is the best health

I tried the freshpet Vital and man its expensive. It was OK. Cheaper to stick to raw. $40 lasted me about two weeks with one dog.
