If you have a problem with feeding meat to your dogs, don't look at this page. LOL

Commercial pet foods

There are lots more....

Skin allergies are usually food related (if not localised). Get rid of grains first, then she should try cutting back to basics and start gradually reintroducing foods to try and identify the problem food. But if the dog has been on commercial food then it probably has a lot to do with this.

Also, when taking a dog off commercial and putting them onto a raw food diet they go through a system cleansing period... depending on how old the dog this might be quite revolting. Mojo suffered from extra eye discharge for a week (quite a mild response), but Khan was fine. The body is expelling these toxins, and this is quite normal.

I also want to add: that vegetarian dogs site has several bits of information that I strongly disagree with, including cooking vegetables (destroys the enzymes needed), using lots of grains, and breads and pasta are fine in moderation only, not as a bulk of food. Food should be as raw as possible for dogs as they need the enzymes even more than we do (they have a very different digestive tract).

I used to feed my dogs white rice, and they didn't have a problem. But I'm still not willing to take the risk anymore. Rice is apparently one of the grains that they handle okay (cooked, one of the very few things that NEEDS to be cooked) but I would never base their diet on grains. They do not have the same nutiritional needs as us.

Feel free to disagree with me.
Doesn't bother me.
