Hi,

Just wondering if dehydrated lamb is hypoallergenic or if any raw meat dehydrated is hypoallergenic please?

It depends on what the dog is allergic to, of course. If the dog is not allergic to lamb, then lamb lung should not be a problem.

I can't imagine it would ...it's still lamb meat, just a different part of the lamb. It's not exactly "hypoallergenic."

Dehydrating just takes moisture out of the meat, it won't change the proteins, so I don't think that dehydrated lamb would be different from fresh lamb as far as being hypoallergenic. My guess is that lamb lung or any other part of the lamb would cause a reaction if Jess is allergic to lamb.

I found this interesting info during a quick search:


  • Dehydration has varied, but mostly little effect on nutritional value (almost all carbohydrates, proteins, fat and minerals are retained).
  • Be wary though of water-soluble vitamins as they'd be lost this way. These would be the B-complex vitamins and Vitamin C.

  • Dehydration takes out most of the water content of the food. Thus, effectively - you're declared nutritional information will in fact be significantly higher in terms of dry weight, compared to its fresh weight. Example: If fresh beef has 15% protein, the beef jerky end-product will be somewhere 60-75%. So it would seem that the nutritional value increased substantially, where in fact you'll be eating less of the food to get the same nutrition.

I'd not take the chance with it. I was told that chicken fat would not bother a dog with chicken allergies, but my dog reacted to it.

I'd search for beef lung for her if she can handle beef.
