"Nothing else you can do but I would ask if you can put him onto grain free if they have a suggestion of something. Mine is allergic to anything starchy, the worst one was Potato and Salmon."

Sorry Maria, I was unaware that you were the lady owned by the Beautiful little Oscar in Turkey. Firstly can you let me know exactly what you were feeding him and how much so I can see if there is any suggestion I could even make. Secondly when did they make the diagnosis, before you told them what you fed him, or after?

We have been worrying this problem in our house because there seems to be some sort of Urban Myth about feeding raw meat to what is mostly still a carnivore causes Liver damage whilst feeding vegetable matter to a cat does similar.

Many years ago dogs were very badly fed on scraps from their master's tables which you would think were hardly conducive to good health yet many had better lives with fewer illnesses.

I used to poo poo people who complained that their Pugs had allergies until I was faced with mine and like you had no recourse but to feed either cooked meat and vegetables or raw. I like you chose raw but as I said to you did not go the whole hog. Hektor has had a limited diet, we started off on minced raw chicken which gave him the squits, we moved onto turkey and he had that for a while but he has decided he hates it. We now feed him raw minced beef, mostly from our pet store or sometimes he get human, or he get minced lamb from the pet store. He is a big lad my Hektor, he is tall and generally bigger than all Pugs he has met, something to do with his American Dad methinks but he gets around 100grms of this with a small amount of vegetable and because he is yeasty, only broccoli or cauliflower as they are low sugar. They have to be frozen and defrosted, he does not like the fresh stuff. Now he is six in October and he has been on this sort of diet since the January after he was three. I will have a talk to another member who also had a scare with her Pug Rufus. Laura might be able to help you. I know she found a food for Rufus which is not causing his allergies to much of a problem. Helena
