Why did my dog just vomit and have diarrhea? It was a mess!!!

We just found out that BABY is probably allergic to grains. She had not vomited since early in the year when she had a half teaspoon of rice with her food. It happened 2 or 3 times so we just quit giving her rice.

Well this morning I gave her 1/2 teaspoon of fully cooked original old fashioned oatmeal with her food and she vomited and had a bout of real bad diarrhea. Before the oatmeal her stool this morning was fine!

So we need help finding a

GRAIN FREE
LOW FAT
NO CHICKEN
NO OILS

Dog food

I cannot stress enough that all 4 criteria must be met. The Vets have found that she cannot and should not have oils in her food as she has chronic/ acute pancreatitis. She can not tolerate canola oil, vegetable oil, coconut oil, fish oil, and other supplement oil. She can tolerate a very small amount of soybean oil (very small amount). It must be very low fat due to the severe pancreatitis. She is allergic to chicken, and now it appears that she has been allergic to grains.

Thanks in advance for any help

Surely your vets (more than one?) didn't tell you all this and then expect you to be on your own with such rigid requirements? What did they suggest?

I did a quick search with your criteria. Dog Food Advisor is a great resource when looking up specific details about dog food. Here's what the search returned:

Best Low Fat Dog Foods | Dog Food Advisor

The list the ingredients for each suggested dog food. I hope you can find something that works. Do you cook meals for your dog, as a way of controlling what is consumed?

All the best.

The Vets knew about the oils, fat content, and no chicken and we have been trying different Rx diets and so forth. We just found out this morning that she is probably allergic to grains. I sent messages to all her Drs about the vomiting and diarrhea after oatmeal but I am not one to wait on them to find something. All Vets move kinda slow, since Baby is not their only patient.

Yes I am working with Dog Food Adviser, I actually have been on their site for the past few months trying to find different things and posted on their Fb page yesterday. Today, everything has changed since she could have a grain intolerance too. If she is in fact allergic to grains, it could be exacerbating her Lupus symptoms so I have to move quick. She has been on meds for over 10 months now and she probably does not have much time left so I have to move quickly to find something as far as food and just maybe it will also calm her immune system and just maybe her Lupus will be more under control

What about speaking to a dog nutritionist, or maybe someone who works in a specialty dog food shop?

She sees a nutritionist at the university of Minnesota. Every diet so far has failed, mostly due to oils. I contacted them this morning and told them about the grain issue to add to the mix which will probably end their quest. If she wasn't allergic to chicken we would be ok. Its most likely going to be impossible to find something that she can tolerate. We may end up just having to stay on the Rx food she is on now. None of the grain free foods are set up for pancreatitis. She will eat anything so I might just have to feed her very lean beef, beets, a few vegetables and then try and find a supplement without oils. The pancreatitis will probably have to take priority over grain allergy.

I'd ditch the kibble personally... I know you weren't too keen on the idea of raw, but how about a home cooked meal for a trial? We did it with Jagger for 3 months, just made a simple soup out of meat, organs and a few veg - he loved it. You can boil most of the fat off the meat and skim it from the surface. Best thing about it, you can hide any vitamin powder or other things in it.

She is on the canned Hills ID LF Original.

I had thought about just boiling lean ground beef and then adding green beans, cauliflower, beets, peas, and a couple of pickle slices.

Where can you find canine supplements to add to it? BalanceIT I think may sell them

Any vet pharmacy should carry what you need, or order it online. I would put some organs through the dog too, liver, pancreas etc - those be gently cooked.

Beef is fine, pork would likely be a little easier on the guts starting off. We just made a soup, portioned it off and froze individual servings.
