Is Your Single Protein Raw... Really Single Protein?

Feeding a high quality single protein raw food, is often the best way to begin creating the ideal diet for any dog.

For those with food sensitivities however, which trigger digestive upsets and skin problems, it is a vital step in establishing what an affected pet can or cannot safely eat going forward.

For this to work however, a single protein raw food, needs to be exactly that.

And the reason for this, is that as soon as another protein is present, there is no way of determining which is responsible for triggering a reaction if itching flares up, bowel disturbances appear, or inflammation occurs in other parts of the body, such as the ears, feet or anal region.

This is why it is so important not to mix ingredients from different species, such as lamb tripe with turkey, or beef with chicken bone. If combinations like this are present in a raw food, it cannot be single protein. And if this is the case, it is more likely to cause problems for those with dietary sensitivities or intolerances.

The same is true however, if a single animal source is used, but other proteins are added in the form of sesame seeds, peas, lentils, kale, bilberries and many other vegetables and fruits. 

And even though some of these ingredients are not high in protein, they can still provoke strong reactions in sensitive dogs, just as a trace of peanuts in a food can cause serious problems for people who react badly to nuts.
