    Defaultdiet for allergies

    As I read below on the site about allergies and diet, someone said that their dog got better on a veg diet.

    I thought dogs needed a meat diet??

    I don't know why someone would just feed a vegetarian diet to a dog. It certainly does not have the nutrion a dog needs. When I went to college there was a rumor that a local famous vegatarian musician had his dog on a vegetarian diet because he was...the animal people were in an uproar. You can do it, but I am sure it's not good for the dog.

    I didn't read the other post, but if I had to make a snap judgement, all that tells me is that the dog's allergy issue is due to a particular KIND of meat that the person who claimed all veggies was better didn't bother to sort out.

    Sorry...dogs are carnivores and I don't agree with putting them on a vegetarian diet, allergies or no allergies. Not right at all in my opinion. I'm not sure how a dog could possibly thrive on a vegetation diet anyway -- nutritionally a pure veggie diet is NOT a balanced diet for an animal designed to eat meat.

    Dogs need a certain amount of protein to be healthy. The dogs with food allergies are often allergic to large proteins from various meats. There is a perscription dog food (can't remember the name) which has hydrolyzed soy as the protein source. The soy protein is broken down to smaller amino acids for digestion. Maybe this is the veg diet they were referring to.

    My neighbour feeds vegetarian and his dog seems fine. It isn't something I would do. Ernie has allergies to dry food and I feed him a meat, chicken and fish and mix in a few veges to fill it out.

    my friends dog is on a veg. diet and is fine. we tried buddy on one cause no other food was working and he did horrible- I guess it depends on the dog. I know there was a protien source and it was at 17 % but not sure what it was .
