Does anyone have a recipe I can make for my dog who is highly allergic to everything. He cannot have: barley, beef, beets, carrots, chicken, corn, cow's milk, egg, fish mix, lamb, oats, peanuts, pork, potato, rice, soy beans, sweet potato, turkey, venison, wheat, yeast, apple, berry mix, banana, duck, green beans, green peas, rabbit, salmon, shellfish mix, spinach, tomato.
The only ones that scored over 200 are chicken, oats, wheat, and duck; everything else is over 100. Can I feed him the stuff that's in the low 100's? I'm not sure how these test scores work. I just ordered Purina HA which seems to have next to nothing in it, but I'd rather just make him dinner myself. Thanks.

I also have a dog who is allergic to everything. However, we have put her on a grain-free diet and are feeding her California Natural Kangaroo and Lentils and so far she is doing better and getting her hair back. You can order from chewy.com and it is delivered free. Hope this helps your dog.
Contact Nzymes.com talk to some wonderful people there, wonderful product, no Chinese ingredients. They won't even use containers from China. Their Nzymes do wonders for all sorts of health problems. Never vaccinate your baby. Brings on allergies, sickness and immune malfunction. No corn wheat or soy. No grocery store dog food aisle food. Specialty shop or cook. Are you aware that they are even putting euthanised pets back into pet food. The euthanol does not cook out so you would be feeding poisons to your pets. Build immune system, don't destroy it.
Have you tried tuna, quinoa, cabbage, lettuce, or goat cheese? I have no idea how the allergy scores work either, or what scores these foods have. These are foods that some of my dogs have liked, that were not on your list. Good luck! Please keep us posted on your dog's progress, and bless you for caring so much and trying so hard to help him.
My rottweiler is allergic to grain and wheat, this is what causes most problems with itchy waxy ears and shaking heads and chewing paws.. I now feed him cooked potatoes, canned tuna or pilchards and spinach. Fish oil can be added and vitamins. But potatoes and can fish cheap. My dogs coat is like silk.

Does anyone know a good, easy, hypo-allergenic dog food recipe for Boxers? I have an eight year old Boxer. He recently developed allergies, but all his blood work normal. I would really like to make his dog food at home. I would like to start with a grain free recipe. Any help would be truly appreciated.

After finding allergies, making several vet visits, I started doing my own research through my friends. I found a brand called Countrypet Naturals. I tried it and all the allergies disappeared. I did more research on it and found it be a pure food from New Zealand. Their foods do not contain any grains or preservatives, which causes the allergies. My dogs wolfed it up! Their energy level is up and you cannot tell the difference between my puppy or older dog! (07/12/2010)
My daughter has a dog with severe allergies and feeds him chicken and rice on her vet's recommendation: Chicken thighs in an economy pack from Walmart, white rice in a large bag, also at Walmart (around 5 cents a pound). Cook the chicken thighs in enough water to cover until well done (an hour more or less). Remove thighs and debone, saving cooking water to cook rice. Simmer rice until done (45 minutes?), adding more water as needed so it doesn't burn. Cool deboned chicken and mix into cooled rice. Store in refrigerator up to a week and feed twice a day. Amount you would make would be dependent on the size of the dog, but my daughter cooks 2 packs (18-20 thighs total) and 6 cups of dry rice. It makes a large amount so you need a big pot to store it in. Obviously it would be perfectly good for people to eat as well. (07/14/2010)
I had a Cairn terrier that was allergic to everything. I tried everything you can think of. I was on my way to the exotic meat market to try lion or water buffalo when I realized I had not tried canned salmon. So I cooked up a batch of brown rice (for fiber) about 8 cups when cooked, and added a 15 oz can of salmon, bones and all. He ate that until he died at age 17 yrs. He was very allergic to some vegetables, so figure out what your dog can tolerate. Broccoli was the worst for my dog. I skipped the veges and gave him a multivitamin. Good luck! (07/23/2010)
I am looking for simple recipes for dog food and treats. Lucky is a Shih Tzu male with allergies.

After making several foods for my 9 Shih Tzus, I gave up and now purchase frozen Bil-Jac at a vet's office. I don't go to this vet except for the frozen Bil-Jac. All but one have "lost" their allergic reactions, and number 9 is making good progress! (06/11/2010)
When my dog had a sick stomach, my vet recommended boiled chicken breasts and plain white rice. (06/14/2010)
Does anyone have any homemade dog food recipes for a dog with food allergies? My Boxer is on Royal Canine Sensitivity Control and this doesn't seem to be working. We have tried other hypo-allergenic foods but nothing helps. I want to try home cooked recipes.
