Hello Smile

Your pooch wont be allergic to protein in general, it will specific proteins i.e. chicken proteins. Vets can do tests to find out which one is making your pooch poorly.

"Ask for advice on an elimination diet. Some veterinarians may be able to coach you through a temporary home-cooked food elimination diet for your dog and ask about a hydrolyzed protein diet. Specialized allergies such as this must be fed for about three months with no other foods, such as treats or table scraps, allowed at any time.

Once symptoms resolve, you will gradually introduce individual foods until the allergen is identified."

Do you know what protein source your dog is allergic to?

What do you feed him now?
