Hey guys, this is my first post here. I have been searching and searching for a dog food that is good for my dog and doesnt contain any allergens she has been tested for. She is a 1 in a half year old doberman pinscher.

She is allergic to: Chicken, Fish, Flax, Pea, Peanut, Pork, Rice, and Soybeans.

I have found a few dog foods that may work but none are available in my area. Im really hoping someone can give me a hand with this and point me in the right direction. I dont want to feed a cheap dog food, because i love her... but i also can not afford a raw diet or freeze dried food long term. Some of the brands that would work, but are not available in my area is Sport Dog Food Elite, Breeders Choice Pinnacle Peak, Natures Logic, and Canine Caviar.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and im sorry if this has already been posted.

Nutro LID- Venison and Sweet Potato
Nutro LID- Duck and Lentils
Nutro LID- Lamb and Sweet Potato
I was looking at those foods, and i can find them here.

I thought chickpeas would still be considered peas though? She is most allergic to peas out of everything. I have tried some Zignature formulas and her allergies were horrible on that food, and that is what i feed my other dogs with great success.

@zfincher88, I feel your pain. I have a highly allergic dog myself and have tried every kibble, canned food, raw and home cooked diet.

I'm not sure where you are located, but if you are interested in one of the foods you mentioned, then they may be available through Chewy.com. I too have found it extremely difficult to find foods that 1. have none of the ingredients that are known allergens; 2. he will actually eat; 3. that I can afford long term!

A friend of mine has a rescue dog who is profoundly allergic and has malabsorption issues and the consulting specialist that her own vet spoke to recommended a very limited ingredient product called Rayne Clinical Nutrition. Their foods are single protein, no contamination with animal sourced fats and legume, soy, rice, flax and pea/pea protein free. The kibble comes in rabbit and kangaroo protein and for extremely allergenic dogs, there is also an alligator canned food available. The alligator food, is the only one my friend's dog can tolerate without severe GI complications.

I hope you are able to find a food that works for you.

Chickpeas are not peas.
Their proper name is Garbonzo Beans
It is possible she could be allergic but it isn't a conclusion you can make without trying.

That's like saying a someone who is allergic to watermelon is also allergic to honeydew or cantaloupe.
It's possible but you won't know until you try.

While this is true, many of the OP's pup's allergies stem from the legume family. Chickpeas, peas and lentils, are also part of the same family, but more commonly considered pulses. In essence, the allergenicity of these ingredients is very high.

I would proceed with extreme caution when trying lentils or chickpeas/garbanzo beans and read labels for the inclusion of alfalfa and carob, which are also common ingredients in pet foods/treats that are members of the legume/pulse family.

Another food to try would be Ziwi Peak.
It's filler free air and high quality.

If you ask for a sample pack they'll send you one for free. Explain your dogs situation, her allergies and such. They'll send you one of everything pretty much!

It isn't the cheapest food but it's the most allergy friendly pre made food on the market in my opinion.

Pax was also allergic to almost everything it seemed...he does great on both Origen and Fromm. Both should have blends that fit your needs and are great quality brands.
