Not sure if you know of a food called pure, it is a dehydrated food that you mix with warm water, I know that it is a wet food but they do a duck version .
I have just looked and Milles wolfheart  they do a duck dried food and they also do a pork one too,may be worth a look they also do small bags to try so you do not have to buy a large bag at first. I hope that you can sort out some food for your dog. :)

Introductions / Me & my Yorkie

  Hi,  I'm hoping Someone can help. I have a one year old yorkshire terrier diagnosed with dietary responsive disease/inflammatory bowel disease. Symptoms have always been vomiting and anorexia. Specialist vet advised exposing him to a protein not exposed to before ie duck and purina ha. He copes well on this but isn't keen on purina. He prefers dry food as a dog food. Have tried so many dog foods but he hasn't reacted well. Really keen to find something he tolerates as cooking duck is costly and inconvenient. Thanks in advance.

It's not often we get the chance to listen to Susan Thixton of Truth about Pet food, (The Canine Natural Kitchen talks to Susan Thixton), there are some connection issues during the conversation but eventually sorts itself out.

Thanks for the answer.
I apologize in advance for my English, because I use a translator.

Now I have gathered other questions for this period)))
Without advertising.
How can a company with reputation risks get a high rating from you. American and Canadian ratings, everything is clear there. They are biased in their manufacturers and put their ratings and not allowing European manufacturers because if they are, they will not be relevant.

 I think you will understand what brand I'm talking about below.

1) The company officially confirmed the presence of pentobarbital in its feed, after the investigation and the lawsuit of Clean Labels. Respectively Clean Labels were right.
2) There is no feed quality control in Canada. All production is done "empty word". Post number 1 confirmed this.
3) GMO is used in feed
4) in Australia, officially confirmed death of cats after exposure cat food. And the company made a recall.
5) Officially confirmed the quality of food for the people of Canada, problem number 1. Canada cannot provide healthy nutrition for its own population. How animal feed gets high reting
6) Complaints of their employees
7) Environmental pollution
8) Information not verified : in our country, one person in the laboratory did an amino acid analysis according to the Fediaf. Unfortunately, it doesn’t correspond (Probably because it was produced according to aafco or article No. 2)  In the near future I want to make sure of the accuracy of the information myself and do an official analysis on the amount of amino acids
9) and more more ....

I cannot understand alone how, after such officially confirmed data,  recommend and give high marks?
I think that food from Golden Acres is much better and safer for our animals. And I think that such parameters as reputation should be read in your rating.
You also have one American brand manufacturer, Dia....d. So this manufacturer does not crawl out of recall on pollution (salmonella etc). I don’t understand how to give him a good mark.

Kind Regards
Alex

Hello and welcome to the forum HuskSamoy. If you want any specific feeding advice, please ask although we don’t usually recommend any particular product. It’s useful to say what you are currently feeding, if it is suiting your dogs and what type of food you prefer.
