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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rae7 Dogs won't eat it
I purchased this food for my Bichon with food allergies. We've been trying new things since we got allergy tested and we thought we'd found a winner but they changed their ingredient list. So we bought this and my girls just won't eat it. We have to mix it with wet food before they'll go near it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by yshres Not sure about allergies, but my dog LOVED this food
My vet recommended this food to test if my dog's allergies were food related. After a skin allergy test, we found out she is allergic to all kinds of grass and tree pollen, not food.
Because of this, this food did absolutely nothing to prevent her itchiness. I can't speak to whether this food works or not since my dog ended up not being allergic to food. My dog did love it though! She would eat it as a treat as well as her food.

My dog had food allergies and was on kangaroo natural balance dog food previously. Hoping the transition back to this good will allow us to have the same great results as previously

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 Annie76 Great for itchy dogs
I have four dogs and each one of them seems to have some sort of skin issue, scratching, biting, etc.. since switching to IAMS kangaroo I am already seeing a remarkable improvement. I recommend this food to anyone with itchy dogs!
