Canned No Grain Dog food

Postby Maryellen » Thu Mar 26, 2009 7:47 pm

so far, jesse and ruby are on DVP LID canned food. so far so good for both. jesse's ears are holding good, and ruby is scratching less then before. both were on kibble but since both have readings of 3000 and 125 on the storage mite allergy test, i decided to do canned instead to see how that works.

i found these other canned foods that have no grains :

evangers duck & potato
evangers 100% buffalo
Evo Grain Free
Back to Basics Pork
California Natural Salmon/ Sweet Potato
Eagle Pack Duck/oatmeal

now since ruby is also sensitive to chicken and salmon oil she cant have the salmon one or anything with chicken in it. jesse can have the others..

am i missing any other canned no grain foods that have NO chicken products at all? ruby cant have anything with any kind of chicken, chicken fat, dried egg,egg if its chicken..

i like that the evangers is only $1.19 for a 13.2 oz can, jesse and ruby are each eating 2 1/2 cans a day, so i need to find a good canned food for a good price. the DVP is at $1.69 and if i buy a case of 24 the store takes off .5cents off each can, which helps, but it is still expensive.. and petco doesnt carry evangers so i cant get their internet discount like i can with the DVP

Wellness 95% Grain free, all natural.
beef, fish and they do carry turkey chicken.

This is more of a mixer food. Shay loves this stuff.

I'm not sure if they fit your needs, but I know there are a few varieties that don't have any chicken (I can't remember about the grains, oddly) and if nothing else the names of the flavors are entertaining:

The trouble with Merrick Before Grain and Wellness 95% is that they are not complete diets, and it sounds like her dogs are eating strictly canned food. So she needs a grain free, complete diet for her dogs.

The Evo I think is going to be your best option.

Actually Before Grain is just one meat and water (and I'm not even sure what parts of the animal are included, since it doesn't specify if there is bone or organ meat) so it's NOT a great food. It's a good supplemental meal, and I use it on "special occasions" for my crew, but don't count on it as a complete diet (as it says on the can)

Amie, I use the canned food and mix it in with their kibble. I would never think of using canned food as the sole source of their diet.

:)) I trust you to use it properly, Denise! I just wanted to get that little "disclaimer" in - it is a great canned food as a garnish, but not as a stand alone.


(the buffalo in particular is nice and firm and makes a great kong stuffing, btw)

thecan food has to be a complete food, as they both cant eat kibble due to their allergies, otherwise i would stick to the dvp lid kibble .. the evo has chicken in it , and ruby cant have that. jesse can, but ruby cant. so far they are doing good on the dvp lid canned food, i wanted a variety so that i could feed different cans. with jesse on canned food only her ears are doing so much better.
