Allergic to chicken

I've been reading thread for a while about the benefits of "home made" food (especially a raw diet). From teeth to coat, everyone is praising "food" over kibble.

I would love to give my dogs "real meat" but the problem I have is Taz is allergic to chicken. We're talking a VERY bad reaction.

So is there anything else that is safe to try?

Why not Venison? I don't believe in "raw", but cooked Venision, especially for dogs with food allergies, is good.

Beef, lamb, turkey and venison as Holly mentioned are all good choices. I cook my dogs food so I'm not sure but I don't think beef bones would be good and I don't know about the deer bones. Lamb and turkey should be fine and then just add in some beef and deer meat just be sure or atleast till they are used to eating raw meat and bones.

Duck too though it can be hard to come by sometimes. Rabbit, but you'd have to add extra fat. Raw beef bones are fine, never fed deer bones but in theory they're fine (dogs cannot catch CWD so don't let someone freak you out over that).

Mine hound can not eat most meats especially not chicken but he can eat turkey so I make his food. 50% ground turkey , 25% of quinoa and 25% variety of fresh veggies. I found one dog food that I can use its called Pure
Vita. They have a few different meats to choose from. You have to be careful of the fat used in the foods, sometimes they will use one kind of meat or meal and then use chicken fat. That is why I ended up home cooking. At the time there were no foods he could eat. I started with a vegetarian diet to let his gut heal then after about 6 months I added the turkey. In about a week his stomach improved. There are also a few great side effects like cleaner teeth and ears and shiny coats.

Can a dog have raw lamb bones? I like the idea of giving them some lamb. I just want to be able to give them some "meat" in addition to kibble. I'm never going to go "raw". Just not something I'm capable of doing with my schedule.

I don't see why not, I'm not aware of any disease that sheep carry thats contagious to dogs, my only concern would be size of bone to size of dog, and thats something you'll learn by watching your dog.

Cool! Fyi: Apollo likes to carry his around, and if I let him he'd settle on the couch to chew on his raw bones. Needless to say I'm not to thrilled with this habit. Consider restricting your dog(s) either to crate or kitchen, or outside, whenthey're working on bones.

Shelby is allergic to Chicken too

One of my dogs (Shelby – Golden Retriever mix) is also allergic to chicken. We put her on Natural Balance food – LID Sweet Potato & Venison – and she is doing GREAT. I can totally recommend this food – it really cleared up her red spots and occasional stomach upset. Natural Balance actually makes a whole line of food for allergic dogs – my friend’s Lab eats their Fish formula. The ingredients are very healthy and my Shelby loves the taste. Good luck!
