Raw Dog Food Recipes & Tips For Dogs With Allergies [2024]

Raw dog food recipes and tips for dogs with allergies, anyone?!

That’s exactly what you’ll find in my e-book for raw-fed dogs with allergies!

Disclaimer: This blog post was originally published in 2020 and has been updated in 2024. It contains affiliate links I may earn compensation through at no additional cost to you. 

I specifically wrote it for raw-fed dogs with allergies to common protein sources like chicken, beef, turkey, pork, lamb, salmon, etc.

That said, my raw dog food recipes are inspired by my very own pup Wally’s food intolerances.

He’s a raw-fed, 38 lb Feist mix who gets rashes and hot spots from eating several different foods.

These foods are:

  • Quail
  • Salmon
  • Sardines
  • Pheasant
  • Anchovies
  • Any and all grains
  • Green lipped mussels
  • Several veggies and fruit
  • Chicken (including eggs)

What’s In This Raw Dog Food Recipe E-Book For Dogs With Allergies?

For starters, there’s 10 raw dog food recipes.

They feature 10 novel protein sources, including rabbit, duck, venison, camel, kangaroo, ostrich, beaver, alpaca, thread herring, and lake trout.

Also, low-carb, non-starchy veggies. That’s because starchy foods contribute to inflammation in the body, which causes itchiness that leads to excessive licking, hot spots and hair loss.

I include resources of where to buy the ingredients in the US as well as a few resources in Canada.

You’ll also find basic raw feeding knowledge. That means I’ll teach you how much to feed your dog per day and what balanced raw dog food consists of.

That includes the feeding math for your particular dog(s).

Also, how to find out which foods don’t agree with your dog using the food elimination approach or food sensitivity tests.

As a bonus, you’ll get a recipe card and a meal planner for your dog.

What’s The Cost of Feeding These Raw Dog Food Recipes?

Well, for starters, my e-book is priced at $9.99 when it’s not on sale.

This price drops a little every now and then when it’s on sale, generally around any major US holidays or when I feel like it, ha!

Tip: Sign up for my weekly e-mail newsletter to stay up-to-date on e-book sales, free giveaways, reviews, and general raw feeding knowledge.

Then it depends on your dog’s size, daily food requirement, and the ingredient cost.

Raw Dog Food Ingredient Cost

This depends on where in the world you live!

But generally speaking, you can find great deals on many ingredients, you may just have to do some comparing and digging around.

That’s especially true if you buy from local farms, make friends with hunters and wildlife processors or hunt yourself.

You can also save money by placing orders together with other raw feeders, and by browsing the sales sections of online raw dog food retailers like:

For Raw Feeding Miami and Raw Paws Pet Food, I can also offer you a 10-15% off discount.

Use this referral link for 10% OFF your first order from Raw Feeding Miami.

Use affiliate discount code K9Savings for 15% OFF anything you order from Raw Paws Pet Food.

It also really pays off to invest in a chest or upright freezer for your dog’s raw cuts of meat.

That way you can buy in bulk and stock up on ingredients that are seasonal items only, like venison or beaver.

Last but not least, keep in mind that raw feeding drastically decreases your vet bills.

Especially the ones for steroid shots, creams, and any pills that are supposed to help dogs with allergies.

Your Dog’s Size And Daily Raw Dog Food Requirement

This is highly individual as every dog is different, but let me give you a few examples.

For example, a 15 lb adult dog who exercises moderately will eat around 6 oz per day.

A 30 lb adult couch potato will eat closer to 9.6 ounces.

A highly active, 70 lb adult working dog will eat more like 2.8 lbs per day.

It essentially depends on a dog’s respective size, metabolism and activity.

Example 1: 15 lb dog eats between 4.8 – 9.6 oz of raw dog food/day

For instance, an adult dog whose ideal body weight is 15 lbs eats between 4.8 and 9.6 oz per day.

Now let’s assume that you place an order for 30 lbs = 480 oz of Signature Duck from Raw Paws Pet Food. This food can be fed as is.

Here’s what’s in it:

Whole Duck, Duck Necks, Duck Liver, Duck Gizzards

Since you’re meeting the free shipping threshold, there’s no shipping charge.

Before using my discount code, the total cost would be $299.9 (in 2024), or $9.99/lb.

If you use my affiliate discount code K9Savings, that takes 15% OFF and brings the total price down to $254.92.

That would last the 15 lb dog between 50-100 days:

  • 480 oz/ 4.8 oz = 100 days worth of food
  • 480 oz / 9.6 oz = 50 days worth of food

Example 2: 30 lb dog eats between 9.6 oz – 1.2 lbs of raw dog food/day

An adult dog whose target body weight is 30 lbs eats between 9.6 oz and 1.2 lbs per day.

Let’s assume that you’re placing an order for 30 lbs of complete duck and 30 lbs of complete beaver from My Pet Carnivore, for a total of 60 lbs of meat.

The cost including $78 shipping would be $446.85 (in 2024) or $7.45/lb.

That would also last the 30 lb dog 50 – 100 days.

Example 3: 70 lb dog eats 1.4 – 2.8 lbs of raw dog food/day

An adult dog with a target body weight of 70 lbs eats between 1.4 lbs and 2.8 lbs per day.

Now let’s assume that you can get 30 lbs of free venison meat from a local wildlife processor.

During hunting season (September – January), this is absolutely realistic!

Additionally, you place an order for the following from Raw Feeding Miami:

The cost would be $410.45 (in 2024) – 10% referral discount = $369.41.

Shipping is free because it meets the free shipping threshold of $150+.

Raw Dog Food Recipes For Dogs With Allergies: Meet The Author, Barbara Rivers

Hi, I’m Barbara Rivers, raw dog food nerd par excellence!

I’ve been feeding raw dog food since 2015, started making my own in 2016 and really had to step up my raw feeding game when I adopted my pup Wally in early 2019.

That’s because of his many food sensitivities!

Before him, I had two Boxers, Missy & Buzz, who weren’t nearly as sensitive as far as different cuts of meat were concerned.

So feeding them raw was comparatively easy.

In case you’re wondering, no, I’m not a veterinarian.

However, I got my certification as a raw dog food nutrition specialist from Dogs Naturally Magazine in early 2020 and have prepped 1000s of raw meals at this point.

Here’s a little teaser and free tips on how to deal with dog (food) allergies as an excerpt from the e-book.

Bottom Line

Now, even if your dog doesn't have the exact same food sensitivities as my Feist mix Wally, you'll still get tons of feeding ideas.

That's because I specifically chose the raw dog food ingredients that I used in the recipes because of their hypoallergenic qualities.

That means that they're not commonly used in commercial raw and dry dog food.

And because of that, there's less of a chance that dogs are sensitive to them.

So even if you're not able to source all of them on a regular basis, you can still choose between enough foods to add to your homemade raw meals.

Now go ahead and get a grip on your dog's allergies and check out my e-book here!
