    Default Feeding Raw - Beef and allergies

    Hi Everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me if Veal would be better than beef when it comes to allergies in dogs.

    I am a little unwilling to feed chicken consistently, as my 2 are fat enough.

    Any advice welcome, thanks in advance.

    Look also at:

    kangaroo, rabbit, goat, turkey and of course most varieties of fish. Lower fat - but still with all the important nutrients.

    To answer your specific question – have a look at this link:

    Meat Calories and Nutritional Information

    Most times with different types of meat and allergies - it is simply a case of trial and error. If beef is the problem - then going onto a whiter meat may help.

    Thanks RileyJ. I worry about smelly farts with roo as well, but that's better than itchy skin.

    I will have a look at your link and just try different meats.

    Thanks.

    haven't had any problems with my dog's farts and her dinner is based on either beef, roo or lamb (dry food).

    Chicken or eggs or cabbage or onion (don't let your dog have onion) might lead to farts.

    And tinned dog food. I don't know what they do to that but I can guarantee room clearing farts if my dog eats it.

    Veal is just younger beef so they'd probably still have a reation to it.

    Mine are fed mainly chicken and they're all thin dogs.
    They also get lamb, beef, turkey and roo, offal and eggs. Too much roo gives them the runs though.

    Thanks everyone, I have decided to go 50/50 chicken and roo and see how we go.
    The dogs also get on a regular basis, chicken necks, RMB, sardines and eggs.

    Hopefully this might help the itchy one out a bit.

    you could probably include a bit of carrot, and maybe apple, and greens like peas etc with that.

    or if there's vegetation (grass) in your yard, your dogs may balance things up.

    What a funny pup you have - or maybe I should say I have a funny pup ! Riley loves broccoli, beans, peas, carrots, cauliflower, pumpkin, sweet potato .. and the list goes on !

    Try grating or zapping in the food processor - and see how that works ! You may also find cooking the veggies helps.

    Getting more veggies into them helps fill them up - particularly if you are looking to decrease their weight a bit - and is also good for them.
