I’m curious how many meals a day you feed.

Hi, I just had a look and my initial feeling is because it has dehydrated and then fresh meat to a total of 37%, veg etc but no red ingredients. I may be wrong.

Hi, looking at your list of foods to avoid I noticed there may be some alternatives that you could try with help from your vet. I cook for my dog who can happily eat anything so I can really use different ingredients. She likes and has no problems with excess or any wind or smelly skin, itching etc: lentils, chickpea, sorghum wheat, carrots, parsnip, apple, strawberries, raspberries, banana, pear, butternut squash and broccoli. All have a fairly good range of nutrients. If your dog can tolerate goat milk and cheese it may also be possible to go vegetarian for a short amount of time with vet supervision so some of the symptoms settle down, ie just goat cheese and veg no soya. This is assuming you haven’t found a commercial food yet.

Hi, I also have a question about butternut box. I asked them recently about what they use for calcium etc as I use ground bone and some omega oils when I make fresh food. The answer I got was that ground bone isn’t used as it’s not fit for human consumption but they never told me what they used for their ‘minerals’. Wondered if you guys know?

Hi, I’m going a bit off track as you’ve tried other things. Does your dog eat kibble or tinned meat or trays of meat. What type of bowls do they have?
Do you live near farmers fields?

My thinking is if your dog goes quite a long time appearing to get better then maybe it is environmental and it’s something random like the container the food comes in, food bowl, pesticides outside, something on the ground etc.
Is it possible it is stress related? Does something happen like fireworks, stressful activity etc before a bout of chewing etc.
