I do Not Want to Give Feed to my Dog ​​that Has an Allergy

Canine nutrition, unfortunately, is a complex issue that does not have much information. In fact, there is virtually no independent information to typical trademarks. The largest encyclopedia of dog nutrition belongs and was published by a well-known brand of feed, so it is difficult to find independent solutions. Veterinarians practically do not study anything else, and in that encyclopedia they basically have a feed for each specific problem. In addition, veterinarians usually form in congresses sponsored by trademarks so it is quite complicated to find someone who has trained outside the industry.

We do not have the ability to advise you on allergy issues as a veterinarian would but we can tell you, from personal experience (we have a super allergic dog) that if the protein is really animal and comes from meat and not from bones, picks, eyes, etc. as it happens in the feed, there is less risk of allergies.

  • We were investigating alternatives to the feed and we find ourselves with an entrepreneurial initiative of young people and with a different philosophy, NAKU. They can advise you as they have been trained in nutrition outside of commercial brands. They offer dehydrated food that is manufactured in plants for human consumption, which guarantees that there is only animal protein from meat. It seems obvious, but in feed the protein comes from waste, eyes, beaks, legs, etc. They also advise homemade diets for certain situations because they know that it is the best way to feed our dogs. Yes, more expensive, so you can combine it with your bags of dehydrated food and reduce your effort.
  • We have also found interesting alternatives but are based on the BARF diet philosophy, which not everyone likes . It is a diet based on raw animal protein, which for dogs with certain problems is not too advisable. They are called NATUKA, and they are also young and enterprising people with a different and interesting philosophy. The problem is that not all dogs end up getting used to raw food. We tried to try an alternative and we did not get him to like it.

In short, as we always say, the best option, homemade food, and then, alternatives that guarantee the origin of the protein and an adequate and balanced knowledge of the needs of each dog.
