Advice please.  Canine critter, age @ 5 (shelter pet) is allergic to, among other things, beef, chicken, corn, peas , rice, oats (and salt grass, which is a real problem as I winter next to a salt marsh).  For food, that pretty much leaves lamb and salmon, (turkey is a bit high but doable)  potatoes (sweet and white), and spinach, alfalfa, barley, carrots.  I would like to start making his food, but can’t figure out a recipe.  I made food for my now gone little critter, but it used both rice and mixed vegetables.  My critter recipe book is in summer quarters.  I will talk with the vet today,  but would welcome your suggestions.  I have looked on line but it seems that pretty much all recipes contain at least one forbidden ingredient.  Thank  you!

I would probably switch out the forbidden ingredient in the online recipes for one that the pup can tolerate--at least you'd have the rough proportions of carb, protein, and fat OK. But of course your vet will have more info.

Thanks!  He’s allergic to rice and most of what’s in mixed veggies.  Little stinker.  Switching to new dry dog food until I can talk with a veterinarian nutritionist….who knew they existed????
