    The James Wellbeloved Crackerjack treats are hypo-allergenic. They come in lamb, turkey and duck.

    That sounds yummy, lucky dog. but watchout for those grapes, and high sodium foods too. Grapes can cause acute kidney failure in dogs (raisins are worse).

    Basically I would avoid anything that says "meat and animal derivatives" in the ingredients, as this could contain any "rubbish" left over from human food production.

    Commonly available treats such as chewy sticks, schmackos, rewards etc and even things which are supposed to be good for dogs such as Jumbone and Dentastix all contain these type of ingredients.

    Many also contain colourings and quite high leves of sodium.

    Do you think that colourings in the treats can make dogs hypo like children? has anyone seen this happen?

    just a thought....

    Alison,

    It wouldn't surprise me at all. If Charlie has anything with colourings in it, he scratches and bites himself to pieces He's back on the Atopica btw. I gave him one yesterday and after about an hour he stopped biting, scratching and rubbing his eyes - today he is fine Looks like it's going to be one every three days and just hope the immuno therapy will still work

    Oh no, what happens if he doesn't get the six week break from it, can you continue with the treatment at all?

    (((hugs for Charlie))) & Maxx of course!

    Yes, but we're not sure if it will be as effective

    Oh yeah on the subject of treats. Mine get JWB mini jacks (or whatever they're called - tiny bone shaped biccies), apple, banana, peach, orange, cheese, dried liver and heart, cauliflower, carrot, turnip & plenty of other fresh fruits and veggies. Not all at once obviously. They get 3-4 treats a day but none of them fattening.
