Curious About Stella & Chewy’s Limited Ingredient Diet

Since making the switch to Stella and Chewy’s food last year I’ve been so impressed with their quality ingredients, senior dog adoption awareness efforts and overall care about our favorite family members – our pets! Their newest food is designed just for dogs with food sensitivities. The new Limited Ingredient Diet recipes keep it simple with a single-source animal protein and easily digestible carbohydrates without any extra fillers. Basically, all the good stuff and none of the other stuff!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Stella and Chewy’s. The opinions and text are all my own. At Wear Wag Repeat I only write about products we truly love.

Trying Stella and Chewys Dog Food

To be honest, I didn’t realize how many dogs have a bad reaction to ingredients like poultry, grains and gluten. Lucy and Burt will eat just about anything (including that pizza crust in the gutter!), so to get some better perspective on how great this new food is I reached out to some of our Instagram followers.

Meet our food sensitive dog friends

In this post, you can get to know some of our furiends with food sensitivities and read their stories. Once I heard about their itching, rashes, watery eyes and runny poops I felt so bad for them. Luckily their mamas did some research and found out that a lot of it was caused by a sensitivity to chicken or grains (and in one case, fish and beef). All of these pups were switched to a lamb recipe food and are doing great now!

Beatrice Has All The Sensitivities! 

“When I got Beatrice I started her off right away with no grain and chicken just because the breed is so prone to allergies. I was fostering a pit bull at the time that had really incredible results switching from your basic grocery store kibble to a chicken/grain free variety. But even with beef or fish, Beatrice was licking her paws, her eyes were extremely watery causing the folds on her face to become infected, got the occasional hotspot, and most recently she developed an ugly rash that seemed to come out of nowhere and disappear just the same.” – @beatrice_the_bulldog

Allen Had a Rash That Wouldn’t Disappear

“When we rescued Allen we started him on a chicken based dog food. He had some rashes on his elbow when we got him and semisoft stool that wasn’t going away so I ended up taking him to vet and he was diagnosed with derma mites. Most of his rash went away after being treated except for his elbows which just stayed red. That’s when I started to be concerned about food allergies.

I’d read that chicken was a very common dog allergy as well as grain so we switch to salmon grain free. The redness started to go away. Then by accident, my husband bought the lamb grain free version of the food we get and practically the next day my dog’s poop was magically like all the other dogs out there. Nice and solid! I never thought I’d be so excited over dog poop!”  – @paws_four_pictures

It Took Shilo Years To Figure Out His Food Sensitivity

“For years Shilo had sores on his belly and body, and he was always trying to lick or scratch his bum. A vet we were seeing at the time would prescribe a round of prednisone to clear things up. But I was sick of Shilo feeling terrible and doing rounds of steroids when the sores appeared. I decided to go to a new vet who helped us tackle the allergies and heal the sores.

The new vet had a feeling the allergies were food related because if a dog eats something they’re allergic to, it can irritate their butt when they poop. And that’s why Shilo was always licking his butt! She put him on a strict prescription diet and everything cleared up! Then we slowly added different things to his diet one at a time. If he was allergic we could tell.” – @baxter.the.goldendoodle.malone

Limited Ingredients Work for This Picky Eater 

“Ollie has been super picky about food since he was 6 months old. He would go for DAYS without eating. We could hear his stomach rumble but he just wouldn’t eat. I tried a lot of different foods to find something that works. I don’t actually say he’s allergic to chicken, but he is sensitive to it and seems to do much better on chicken free foods and treats! He’s less itchy all around and much happier.” – @sillyboyollie
