Which protein to start with the raw diet??
I have been having major allergy issues with my 2 year old girl Riley, and posted the thread "vomiting and dark stool" about 1 1/2 months ago. Anyway, the vet wanted me to start an elimination diet with the LID Venison and Sweet Potato formula (and nothing else). Her stomach issues resolved, but about 2 week ago she developed red bumps on her chest and anal area. She's on Temaril-P now, which is definitely making her less itchy, and the bumps are healing.
I don't know what's causing her to be allergic, but I have been reading a lot about raw diets, and think I may give it a try. I'm wondering what protein you'd recommend I start her on. I'm hesitant to start her on chicken (which was what she was on for the first 1.5 years I had her) or venison, but don't want the protein to be too rich. Any suggestions would be great. Also, do you recommend I add in probiotics to help her stomach adjust??
Thanks in advance for all your help. This forum has helped me immensely!! I am on it ALL THE TIME!
