Traveler's Mom I just looked into Natures Variety and even the beef & barley dry food has turkey meal as it's second ingredient. Bummer for us.

jocoyn Funny, Beau has zero itching issues, zero hot spots (and as much time as he has been in mucky creeks, and zero ear or skin issues. Just the loose stools but not diarrhea. Maybe I should talk with the vet about giardia. It is rampant in our creeks. He goes in on Tuesday for his hip and elbow x-rays.....I will bag a sample and take it in and say, you know.....

Traveler's Mom Nancy,

Honest Kitchen does have sample boxes for $1.00. I purchased one of each and glad I did-that's how I found out Traveler didn't like the chicken. I thought of buying the one where you add the meat but unfortunately it has too many of the items on his sensitivity testing.

It's kind of funny tho that Traveler didn't have the poop problems generally associated with food allergies. I did it to rule out food as the culprit for his skin itching and subsequent staph infection.

jocoyn We have only tried the honest kitchen. I have a box of that and may try again. May just give this new probiotic more time.

Oh okay. I didn't read back to the beginning of the thread so sorry if you already explained. How does he do with fish?

Does the chart say venison is cool? When my vet gave me a list of cool foods for Mikko I asked about venison and she said it was hot. Beef is normally too, unless it is grass-fed, which I know you've said that the beef you feed is grass-fed (just wanted to clarify for anyone reading this). What the animals eat is so important!

No the rabbit dog food has rabbit meal and turkey meal in that order. I actually just read something on loose stools (we did not have loose stools with Natures Logic, btw) but I have some concerns about staying on just that food.

The vet started us on a probiotic (proviable) and it seems to be making it worse. I just read that that *can* happen and that the dog may go through a bad bacteria purging phase; lord knows he is in creeks and stuff. No diarreah but maybe a touch of some bad gut stuff?. Most of the dog foods have probiotics in them but how active? I have given Bene Bac but not to much impact. I do know that the garlic seems to be associated with some stool loosening ....but I also like not having the tick issue.
