I'm looking for a recipe for hypoallergenic dog biscuits. My poor pooch is allergic to something and is being weaned onto a duck dog food to see if she has a food allergy. This means she can't eat things she has eaten before. I'm having trouble finding a recipe that doesn't call for either beef or chicken broth or that doesn't have a lot of strange ingredients in it.

I'm not too concerned about flour products being something she is allergic to, as the vet did not mention that as a possible allergen, and the food he recommended she be on has wheat flour anyway.

the vet isnt concerned about a wheat allergy? it can be common in cats and dogs. It causes gastic distress and diarrhea.

She doesn't have an upset stomach, she gets extremely itchy. I trust my vet, he takes really good care of my dog and explores all avenues that he feels are worth exploring.

Annie get itchies and an upset tummy when she has wheat flour.

No good dog food has wheat in it. Wheat and corn are baaaad for dogs even if they aren't allergic to it. Have you considered the raw diet? http://www.rawlearning.com/ It's great for dogs with allergies. I feed Diamond, a byproduct (wheat and corn) free dog food that is cheaper than most of the "top quality dog foods".

Does your vet have your dog on science diet? Science diet is full of all sorts of nasty by-products of human food production. Vets get kickbacks for every bag of science diet they sell- and more for the prescription varieties. Science Diet donates food to vet schools so vets learn to treat problems using varieties of that one brand of food- so they never learn in vet school that a lot of problems can be solved just by getting the dog on a real, quality food.

As for your question, I'm not sure about treats without flour but there's no better long-occuping treat than a raw beef knuckle or femur.

There's a couple in The Garden of Vegan that might work for your dog.

My Betsy is on a Prescription Diet.  I have to get her food from the vet.  She gets bladder stones, and had to have surgery last spring.

I use a special dog food as well its main ingredient is catfish and rice, my dog boo use to have the itchies till I changed him to the new food. I don't feed him dog biscuits because of the wheat and corn in them, but my family hunts so I make him venison treats and hes been ok with them, he really loves them.

Thnaksgiving Turkey Gobblers
1 cup ground turkey
2 cups white flour
1 cup cornmeal

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cook the turkey in a pan & crumble into small pieces, set aside on a paper towel. Combine flour & cornmeal in a large bowl. In a small bowl beat egg, oil & water then add tarragon. Add wet ingrideints to the dry & mix well, fold in the turkey. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until thouroughly mixed. Roll out ot 1/2 in thick & cut out shapes. Place on a greased cookie sheet & bake for 15 min or until firm. Cool & serve. Keep leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge.

Seriously, my dog LOVES these!!
