    My dog has allergies to rice and maize (corn) so I am looking for a cereal free dry dog food. He also cant have beef, pork, lamb and chicken.

    The cereal free dry dog foods that i have come across are either turkey and vegetable or lamb and vegetable(which he cant have). He's curently on james wellbeloved turkey and vegetable and he has also had the fish and vegetable.

    Can anyone tell me of other cereal free brands that have another protien besides turkey and lamb. Id like to give him duck, but i havent come across duck and vegetable. I know he really likes it because prior to feeding him JWB he was on wainwrights duck and rice.

    Ive gone through the dry dog food index, but doesnt cover cereal free dry dog food. ive looked at fish4dogs, but id like to give him a variety, so looking for a brand with turkey duck and fish if possible. is it ok to feed him from two different brands?

    Or you could read the Wet food sticky or the Raw feeding section.. :)

    Ahh I see your dilemma - with the wet/dry food stickies the ones in green are the best, if you look at the ingredients it should tell you the rest.

    yes i had a look at the dry dog food sticky, the green ones are quite pricey. Just had a look at simpsons, good range and fairly priced. I Know JWB isnt the best food out there so im looking for something better which i hope will also help with his itching.

    Could you not perhaps look towards Nature diet and wet foods- or if you like giving him Duck - perhaps Raw feeding?

    Of course it takes a lot of research and careful consideration and isn't always suitable for everyone - but it's an option.

    In the meantime, give him some Sardines (tinned but not in oil or brine) and some Apple Cider Vinegar in his water should help with the skin, or slosh on some salmon oil over his biscuits..

    I'm not clued in on Dry foods or Wet..

    Hello

    This is my first reply (in any forum...)!

    I thought I'd try answering this question as I might not be out qualified....

    I feed my dog a veggie diet from Oscar Pet Food as he's had issues with anal gland problems and it seems to do the trick. I do know though that they do a cereal free food; because I considered it for him. It's got potatoes and tapioca in and fish. Cant remember much more but it's on their site.

    Hope that helps...

    There. That's my virginity broken!

    Rupe has issues with wheat and maize. Back in the UK he was on Wainwrights salmon and potato for years. Before that it was JWB. They may not be absolute top of the range dog foods but they're not garbage and they both suited Rupert better than the "better" foods did. Orijen is grain free if I'm not mistaken but I don't know what variety they do, I could never get hold of it easily enough to feed it.
