I feed my 14.5 year old toy poodle Orijen for 13 years. She is allergic to chicken so I choose the fish and beef options. I also supplement daily with boiled beef, white fish, salmon, fresh spinach, grated carrots, diced sweet potatoes, brown rice and apples. I cook a big batch and freeze in smaller portions to last a few days at a time.

Home made food, extra lean ground beef, lean ground chicken and freshly caught salmon, not farm raised. Boil one of these meats and when almost cooked add wild rice. Finish cooking. The mixture should be 1/4 rice to 3/4 meat. Alternate the different meats. Salmon is excellent for skin. Do not feed any dry dog food at all as this is usually the cause. Veterinarian Clinic.

Better watch out with that chicken as most dogs who have eating issues are allergic to chicken or chicken by products in dog food or chicken made at home. Consult with your vet and get prescription dog food, it will make a world of difference for your dog. We have a mini poodle that had stomach issues. Went thru different dog foods, made her food at home, on different meds, had ultra sound done, blood work, etc. Ended up taking her to an Internal medicine doctor who put her on a special canned and dry dog food and she no longer has stomach issues and is healthy and happy. No more vomiting, diarrhea, burping, etc. Chicken was one of the main culprits.

I started cooking for my girls as she was scratching constantly. Eliminated the common allergens…kibble, poultry and focused on beef, broccoli, salmon oil blueberries, carrots and eggs. It kept getting worse. Finally did a DNA thru 5strands testing. She was INTOLERANT to all those things. She now gets white rice, ground turkey, ground pork, green beans and apples cooked into a stew. Way better. Of course she is also intolerant to acrylic fibers but I can’t pull out my carpet and replace right now

I’ve had good luck with Blue Buffalo salmon and sweet potato dry food for my toy poodle. He has had a sensitive stomach since he was a little pup. We tried lots of brands and even boiled chicken and rice with purée meat baby food. The blue Buffalo limited ingredients made a difference. My guy turned 16 today and is going strong for a senior dog
