Rated 5 out of 5 by Deppsgirl Miracle dog food for atopic dogs
My puppy suffered from staff infection on his abdomen due to allergies when he was four months old. He had oozing pustules and no hair on his belly and pants area. Just raging red infection. He also had severe gastrointestinal problems, diarrhea, runny stools. Took him to a dermatologist who did blood testing and looked at infections and determined I have a dog with atopic dermatitis. First thing was to put him on this food. Dramatically within a couple days of putting him on this KO food his poops became normal and he improved on all of his problems! Like a miracle! Four years later, I still feed this food and he's been good ever since the first bag. He's taking weekly allergy shots and weekly 25 mg atopica too but has a beautiful coat, loves the food, and doing very well. No infections. No itch! Just won winners dog at AKC show and another point! Highly recommend this KO food

Rated 5 out of 5 by JimG I bought it for allergies
My previous boxer had allergies that presented with bumps all over and hair loss. My vet suggested that I do a lot of allergy testing and then put my dog on allergy meds for the rest of his life. that was going to be expensive & he was still a very young dog.
I took him to another vet that suggested we first try Iams KO food. Bam! Like that his allergies were over. He stayed on the KO diet the rest of his life & lived to the age of 11 1/2 years.
I have a new boxer now and he's presented skin bumps too. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to know why I am trying Iams KO first. He's been on the diet for about 1 1/2 weeks and for the first time his stools are solid & the bumps do seem to be going away. Maybe it's just the changing seasons but I'll keep him on this diet.
Unfortunately, it's banned in California because of the kangaroo part. So, we'll work that out. Grrrr!

by GunnyFitz Service Dog Food Elimination Trial
Just moved to this food upon advice from my Vet to help determine what my TBI & PTSD Service Dog is having allergic reactions to. To find out if he has developed a "Food Allergy" she suggested going to this food since dogs VERY RARELY eat the Kangaroo Protein used in this food since they have not developed any anti-bodies to it. However, after time dogs CAN and DO develop Allergies to both Chicken & Beef proteins even after eating them for a long time!
Since my dog CANNOT have ANYTHING outside this food whatsoever during this food trial I switched him over to it stone cold, without tapering him off his previous food slowly - as it should be done! Even by switching him to this food right away, he did not have ANY digesting issues or the runs from it- which shocked me! He loves eating it big time and his stool has actually gotten better over the last few weeks!
This food is absolutely awesome to use for Food Allergy trials or even regular maintenance too! I may even keep him on it afterward too! Highly impressed with this IAMS product even though i was never a fan of their stuff before. The protein source is fantastic!
Best wishes and trust in this food for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Golden2015 Excellent food for dogs with food allergies.
This food was prescribed by our vet due to our eight month old golden retriever's chicken allergy. Our pup had suffered with months of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). He was constantly digging at his skin. Testing had ruled out bacterial infection and the presence of other organisms. We were looking for answers. Diarrhea / loose stools disappeared within days of slowly transitioning our pup to this food. Purchasing through chewy.com saves money versus purchasing directly from our vet (he's OK with that). Diarrhea is now gone and itching has decreased substantially. The change is dramatic. This is a great food that does what it's supposed to do. As always - thanks chewy.com for your great products and superior customer service!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Izzy The veterinarian recommended this food for our maltese because she scratches a lot! Too early to tell if it's helping, she's only been on the food fo
I was a bit concerned when the veterinarian recommended this food for our Maltese that she would not like the taste. She loves it, had no problem taking her from what she was eating to this formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CJ43 Very good option for allergic dogs.
My dog has environmental allergies primarily, but this food has definitely decreased his scratching and discomfort. Better yet, he loves it. Expensive, yes, but Chewy has the best price by far. And my dog's comfort is worth it.
