Grain and Pea Allergies

Poor little Aspen has a major problem with food allergies. She is a one year old English Bulldog who has been through a number of elimination diets as well as testing. So far she is allergic to EVERYTHING in the grass family (including clover and alfalfa), ALL grains including rice (guess what, 90% of the grains out there are in the grass family), and the ENTIRE pea family. Beef seems to be her only protein allergy at this time.

Are there any grain free and pea free foods out there? Right now she is on ZwikiPeak as part of another elimitation diet but unless she gets a job, she can't be on this her entire life.

Before you say anything about going raw or trying the BARF diet, please know that it's not an option. We spend a lot of time traveling and high quality proteins are not always available.

Sweet Potato and POtato are not considered grain. You can try Natural Balance LID Venison/sweet potato, fish sweet potato/ etc

I have been label reading the LID diets and Wellness Simple has peas in it. Taste of the Wild also has peas in every formula I think. Natural Balance has a lot of pea free options. They sell dry kibble, canned wet, rolls, & treats for the formulas.

The ingredients will be like "meat, meal of that meat, potato, potato protein, canola oil, vitamins/minerals.: I think they even use citric acid to preserve.

The food won't fix the environmental allergy though, but it will help her probably. Are you going to do shots?

Why can't she stay on the ZiwiPeak without a job?

If it's a packing on the pounds concern, just feed less and fill the pup up with pumpkin.

I think that honest kitchen is an option. Its like home cooking without the cooking. Great high protein food great ingredients
I think a 4 pound box makes 16 lbs of food. and is around $50.00
It would be great for traveling because it is dehydrated.

I assume its a cost issue, at least by me Ziwipeak's not inexpensive. Unfortunetly I don't think theres going to be an inexpensive choice of food for a dog with that set of allergies.

The only reason I knew about it is that it's what I'm currently feeding Shadow, and had read the ingredients before deciding to try it.

After the fiasco I went through with Nature's Choice having chicken fat in it, and my not noticing until after I bought it and fed it to Shadow, I learned to very carefully read the ingredients list.

Rain- I know! I don't know if you caught in the other thread but bosco had really bad paw flare up a couple nights ago and when i showed my husband he admitted (though i misunderstood at first) he threw out raw chicken juice in the grass. The dog licking that was enough to send him in an all out allergy attack. I don't know why they do that! If y'all find just venison/ PLAIN potato, lemme know. I have yet to rule out sweet potatoes. We need 1 more bag of RX before we can start challenging...especially since the chicken juice incident. ugh.
