Hill’s prescription diet for food sensitivities duck and rice.Both my pugs are on this and love it. One of them has 51 allergies

Blue Buffalo lamb and rice hands down! Better than Science Diet, no corn or chicken for sensitive dogs. It took months of our pug mix vomiting every day to realize he couldn’t handle corn. Chicken is also a problem for many dogs.

Royal Canin for sure! My Pug had constant diarrhoea for the first 6 months of his life, but when I spoke to a vet friend, she said her pug was on Royal Canin Pug food, and to give it a try. It improved his digestion massively, and even to this day, he is still on the brand, but is on the Satiety Weight Management food.

I cook for my two as well, best thing I ever did but one of them is getting the poops again .. feels like I get her sorted and it comes back.. I had been using white rice as you can see I’m not the only one, but, did read that we should be using brown rice and not white. I’ve since switched and hoping for the best. Anyone opinion ?
