Have any of you had any success treating allergy/dermatitis type skin issues for your dog? Our 8 year old rescue has real ear/skin issues lately and we have tried everything to help. Lukullus cold pressed has been recommended and we are hoping for a miracle - he is quite miserable right now. Any comments and confirmation of success would be hugely appreciated :) . thank you <3

Lukullus is a fantastic food and a firm favourite with my dogs who do very well on this. I would love to see a review & rating on the lamb & duck food as I can't see one.

Wanted to give my dog some well balanced dog food after doing a web search found this, my 1 year old yorkie poo won’t eat it! And the pellets are that big and hard I can’t even chop them up and mix with something else!

Soak it in a bit of water or broth and it'll soften up to mix it with a wet food.

The rating seems a little bit harsh on this food for the beef and duck/lamb varieties where the meat proportion is higher and maize content much lower.

My boys have been on the angus beef and duck version for a while and very pleased with it but Zooplus has not had this in stock for a while now and had to switch to the duck and lamb and then the beef and trout... dogs not so keen on these two, hope they get it back in soon

I have recently bought a bag of kibbles, the one with duck and lamb. My 4 dogs tolerate it well, but my problem is the difference in kcal they provide online-3585/kg, and the one printed on the bag 3289/kg. I have contacted the customer service support, but no feedback so far…

I have got a reply, in which they admitted the info about kcal on printed bags and online info of the item about kcal might not be updated, but things will be ok in the future…

I have got the final reply on June 25th. Lamb+ duck has 3.289 kcal.

I use the Angus beef and Duck for my two shih tzu cross boys (one 11 and the other 15) and I can honestly say this agrees with them more then any other food they have had, the older one of mine has intolerances to several things now but not to any of the ingredients here, its a very reasonable price on zooplus. I worried the chunky pieces might be a problem for smaller dogs but not at all, I mix in a little Lukullus wet food mostly the Duck and Veal grain free and they clean their bowls . No gassiness and firm poos. excellent ingredients at a price better then most.

I have an American bulldog and until now I have fed him with Purina Pro Plan. But I'm not happy with this food. The fur looks in a bad condition and falls very much. Is there an American Bulldog owner that could recomand me this food?:D I would be very grateful for a helpful answer.

When it come to meat it is usually pork and/or beef that a Hypoallergenic food does not contain amongst other ingredients that usually cause allergies, my dog has always been on a Hypoallergenic diet (7 years) and i have never known a food to be classed as Hypoallergenic because it does not have chicken.

I’ve had my dog for 5 years. He was a 2-year old Spanish rescue when he first came & he just would not eat regular kibble, high end or cheap & nasty.
It took me nearly a year to find Lukullus & I bought the trial-sized packs in all ingredients. He chose Barbary duck & lamb & we’ve never looked back. I mix it with a bit of raw (adjusting the portion size of course) & it’s a clean dish every time. He’s not keen on the biggest bits but I just snap them in half with my fingers.
Smaller firm poops, no smelly wind.

After trying Applaws, which I probably is the better food, for about a year i was fed up with spending a lot of money and it being left all the time. When I found this food which was only slightly less quality, and my dog doesn't seem to be intolerate to grain, which is only thing that gets marked down on this food. We used to mix both foods with treats to get him to eat it but after a telling off from Vets for weight we stopped all treats and only fed this. He now eats it most of the time and his movements are a lot more consistent and easy to pick up. He never eats a full portion so goes even further and he is vibrant and healthy. Can't be beaten for the price..

After persevering with no treats he now finishes the bowl every day - great price and quality ... won't be changing..

I think it's a great food. I've been feeding my dog a mixture of lukullus and origen for over 2 years and all his allergies and health problems disappeared. Charlie (my dog) always picks this food to eat first, so it must be highly palatable. His eyes, skin and coat really cleared out while on this. Highly recommended

I've tried my two dogs on this food for just over a month, and I really like the improvement that I've seen in their faeces, their smell, their energy and their general health. This is especially prevalent in my 10 year old Jack Russell Terrier, Alfie, as he suffers from colitis and this is the best food he has tried so far for his tum.However, I am not convinced about the kieselgur and clay in the food. There has been very little research done on the effects of kieselgur if eaten, but it can be very hazardous if inhaled. Clay was used in ancient medicine for treatment of digestive ailments, but it was only ever used as a short-term remedy. Because of this, I am unsure about using the food long term but prefer to use it in conjunction with another food (swapping between the two, giving breaks from the Lukullus).Overall, this food is very good and I would recommend it for a 'detox', but would be more trustworthy long-term if there had been more research done on the short and long-term effects of kieselgur and clay on the canine digestive system first. 3/5.
