    My vet finally received the preliminary report of Mardi's food allergies. When the final report arrives it will include a list of all available kibble and canned foods Mardi can safely eat. In the meantime, the vet says these are the foods to avoid: beef, soy, white potato, alfalfa and tomatoes. I have been searching online through multiple ingredients lists and the results aren't great. I have found that some Eukanuba formulae are safe, but those foods aren't well rated when I check online. I am low on the Chicken Soup I have been feeding her and it contains some of her forbidden foods. I know I need to switch her gradually and I may have to buy a small bag of CS before the switch to a safe food is completed. I don't recall how long it takes for the computer print out of her safe foods to arrive from Spectrum Labs, who tested her blood, so I am asking if anyone uses a kibble without all five culprits: beef, soy, white potato, alfalfa and tomatoes. I would like to begin the switch as soon as possible. Thanks.

    Nan, check Fromm grain free formulas. I feed surf and turf and I am pretty sure nothing you have mentioned is in this food. Dogfoodadvisor has a complete list of ingredients in each food. Don't get so hung up on the quality, feed what works for Mardi. I am glad you were able to get some answers!

    Thanks for the suggestions. I have to remind myself that years ago I though Purina ONE was great. I can't wait to see how Mardi does when she is no longer eating foods to which she is allergic. My life has been a miraculous change because of allergy shots and I hope a safe diet will help Mardi.

    I just checked the bag of Fromm Surf and Turf, it does contain tomato pomace which I imagine would be completely out for you. My next choice would be Earthborn grain free.

    Wow, what a specific list. I'm struck by the "white potato." Does that mean yellow fleshed potatoes like Yukon Gold are ok?

    Don't get hung up on what the Dog Food Advisor tells you. Many of us feed Eukanuba products because our dog does well on them. It's what works for your dog that's important. And anyway, if you check a less biased website like the Dog Food Project where each ingredient's value is presented separately you can learn to analyse dog food yourself, not rely on someone else to do it for you.

    Of the three foods I rotate only the Euk. Adult Maintenance fits your criterion. It's my breeder's food from weaning till death. I kept my two puppies from her on it, it's my main food. Good luck.

    I just checked our food - Wellness Core Grain Free and it has a few of the items you listed, so it isn't an option.

    Precise Holistic Complete has some foods you could use - Precise Pet Products | Precise Holistic Complete®
    At a glance, it ooks like their medium breed and grain-free pork or lamb & turkey would meet the criteria. I haven't used their foods before, but have a friend with a giant breed who has had good luck with them.

    I can't feed rice or potato to Tess and so hard to find a food without them. Sweet potato is the same for us so started feeding fish and tapioca. There is a fish and tapioca kibble.
    From what I understand it is all potato and sweet potato. I would feed what ever helps your dog.

    I prefer kibble as it has vitamins so recently we started trialling the new Chicken feather diet by Royal Canin. It is suppose to be the latest in hypo allergenic diets.

    None of these food are cheap. I have been feeding Ernie Royal Canin hypoallergenic for about 5 years.

    ETA. There is another called Royal Canine HA. Looks like popcorn and I think a card box box might be more be better for them.

    I was going to suggest Earthborn, too. I couldn't remember if it has tomato, but I know it doesn't have beef, soy, rice or potato. Caleb's been doing great on it.

    I'm assuming it meant white as opposed to sweet potato. Personally, tho, I'd if the results say avoid white potato, I'd avoid sweet potatoes, too.
