20 Best Dog Food For Chihuahua With Allergies
We make our own food, very easy to do and put in the pressure cooker about every week. Boneless chicken, sweet potato or regular potato, frozen vegetables,
Mine is allergic to grains, he eats racheal rye lamb and brown rice and 4 life wet food grain free lamb.
our vet put ours on Royal Canin Chihuahua mix but she has many other allergies so she gets an injection every 6 weeks and is so much healthier now.
Merrick grain free lil plates of beef I add pumpkin, kefir and warm water, mash it and put it in his maze bowl
Purina Pro Plan Salmon and Rice small bites.
My last had seizures. All she got was Purina appetizers and a little boiled chicken with each feeding. I’ve taken her off every shot except the rabies. I kept chemicals (like the exterminator uses) away from her. The last few years I had her, she had no seizures.
Blue buffalo because he eats it and really likes it.
The Royal Canin Chihuahua brand with the short haired chihuahua picture on it as that is the only food my little girl will eat.
I cook chicken.. beef.. rice.. and suck vegetables like green beans and sweet potatoes or pumpkin. (no spices or salt!) a touch of sugar as he lowers blood sugar too quickly and I occasionally use cinnamon to reduce inflammation when his arthritis flares up) I make several combos every week. (yes he’s spoiled, but it kept him off Apoquel!!)
Diamond Naturals. I have had several dogs with food allergies over the past 20 years, diamond is the highest quality at the best price with no allergic reaction of any kind from any of my dogs.
I had my son on Pedigree. It just depends on your pet and what conditions they have. Good luck with your search.
