There are quite a few ways to supply proteins to a dog. I think that’s an understatement. But in consideration of food allergy, there are three main considerations. That’s novel proteins, limited ingredients, or hydrolyzed proteins. But what’s best?
What do you think about the limited ingredient foods such as kangaroo food? Or do you think we should stick to the Rachael Ray food for her?
That is an excellent question
You can feed a food that has brand new proteins the dog has never seen, and of course they will have no allergies to that.
Instead of guessing what proteins would be considered “new“ to the dog, there are also what are called “hydrolyzed protein“ diets in which the proteins are broken down from kangaroo Into the essential amino acid’s, thereby no longer being chicken, beef, or kangaroo. Just raw, antigen free protein building blocks. It seems to me in cases of food allergy that, that is the best result we are getting.
However, food allergy is minor, compared to adverse food reactions, which is usually the body rejecting various insecticides and herbicide’s that are used on the ingredients that go into dog food.
I don’t know what comes up when you keyword search “hydrolyzed protein diets” on Amazon. But that is the most sure fire way to find a diet that will not trigger an immune response.
That being said, I really do like the Rachael Ray Peak, just six, and nutrish lines. Simply avoid her diets that contain lentils and peas.

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?
CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.
Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy.
LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths.
For me, filtration-of-choice
Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
