Does you Venison food have clarified chicken fat? I am looking for a food that will work for my dog with allergies. He has allergies to chicken but I hear that if the chicken fat is clarified it won't cause an allergic reaction.
No, Wysong does not use clarified fat. Clarifying reduces nutrient quality. However, our chicken fat is not likely to cause an allergic reaction.
With regard to potential allergies, the only way to know is by test feeding. Processing changes allergens in foods and thus simply reading a label does not give certainty. Most pets supposedly allergic to one ingredient or another in Wysong, will show no reaction other than health if our diets are fed following the principles in the Optimal Health Program™
. True allergies are also generally to a protein; fat is unlikely to be an allergen.
Also, attempting to treat allergies by removing an allergen, which is often impossible, solves only part of the problem. Focus needs to be redirected to feeding foods, which will enhance immune system health and prevent allergic reaction. Additionally, no food should be fed day in and day out. Variety is the key and prevention of toxicity and allergy.
