No Beef?

I'm curious how many Havs cannot tolerate beef. Neither of mine can. Riley does OK with fresh beef, just a piece or two, canned a big no-no. Reo will end up with bloody diarrhea from just a small piece of beef. Is this common in the breed?

I know a couple Havs that don't do well on beef, but mine can eat anything! In general canned food alone isn't very good for dogs. Not enough fiber. Too much water. Which can cause a bout of acute colitis.

Sorry Karen, that's inaccurate , I fed canned for years. any nutritionist prefers it over kibble. Lack of water in kibble causes many problems

havanese forum canned vs. kibble part 1 http://www.havaneseforum.com/showthr...ghlight=versus

in every category except price and convenience , canned is better .

Cats are no different and more sensitive to kibble http://catinfo.org/docs/Feeding%20Yo...es%2011-13.pdf

Emmie has no problems with beef (or lamb, venison, chicken, turkey, duck). The only proteins I don't feed due to mild sensitivity are salmon, white fish, and rabbit.

Leo seems able to eat any meat without an issue. Cheese of any kind is his problem.

Charlie is fine on beef. We've just started him on kangaroo. I thought I was buying the raw beef patties but they were the kangaroo ones which he hadn't had before, so initial change in poo form (enough information). But I'm hoping that will settle down today.

NB kangaroo meat is very common here and is a very healthy low fat meat.

I've had no issues with any kinds of meat with the Havs I've had close contact with however wheat allergies have been an issue many times

From the time Django was a puppy he could not handle beef. He would get horrible brown yeast in his ears, etc. Thank goodness for turkey!
