sunflower oil

Postby deedeesmom » Wed Jan 23, 2008 11:19 am

Why is sunflower oil considered to be such a good ingredient? None of my three dogs can tolerate it. My allergy dog out right breaks out, and my girls with no allergy issues get an ordor from it. I have heard mentioned a few times that it is a common allergen. So why do so many of the higher quality foods use it?

Apparently the omega levels in it are desirable, so I heard. Aja can't have it either. Any food with sunflower oil makes her turn red and shed like crazy. Canidae, California Natural, and Nutro all did this to her, and that was the only ingredient in any of those foods that was different from foods she'd tolerated before.

Aja can eat anything else as far as I've seen, she's not very allergy prone.

Leeloo tolerates it just fine, but can't have Salmon oil!

Tima can ONLY have olive oil, everything from flax to canola she has a severe intolerance to.

that's my suspect for what made harv so itchy. it's really a pain, because canidae is so cheap and my other dogs do so well on it, but harv can't eat it.

Thank you Linariel. I knew there had to be a reason. This is one of the reasons I ended up with Natural Balance. All of the foods I thought allergy boy could handle had sunflower oil, which he can't handle, so back to NB trying Venison and Sweet Potato.
