Look into using beef tallow, it's processed so not raw and has the fat content that may be lacking in the diet if you can't find a better food.

KOOTS,
Thank you, I will check into that.

Beef tallow sounds good, also for working energy, coat, + roughly 100 calories/tablespoon.  Yeah, both mind are going on this added to their food, once per day should be enough??

Valk- excellent comment! I liked especially the last phrase/question!

Valk,
Due to the fact that I eat mostly chicken and fish it will not work for him. As I have mentioned several times he is allergic to chicken and fish.
Ali44, The last phrase of Valk comment is not suitable for my dog sadly!

So IF anyone knows of a kibble that fits what I have asked for please list it!  THANKS

Jyl: he is allergic to chicken and fish

you did come to that conclusion from feeding him by actual chicken and fish or from feeding packaged dog food with a printed on it assurance "contains real chicken and fish"?

Again, good point Valk!
Real allergy to chicken meat (not processed chicken products) is very rare even for humans. If we take into account that dogs are carnivores I think it's even much more rare in their case.
Did your vet perform allergy tests on your dog, like for humans and quantified the dog's response?

ValK and ali44,
First off I am dealing with my holistic vet and she is helping me with the medical part, but since you are asking...
He is allergic to the chicken and fish version of kibble and raw or home cooked as well... His severe reaction is the same to both the kibble version and the raw or home cooked version of the meat as well.. and I know you are going to ask so I will say the meat I use is organic and for the fish is wild caught with no hormones and for the chicken it is free range and no hormones added... which is what I eat too..

As I have mentioned above a couple times I can no longer do raw here... and am looking for suggestions for either a lamb and rice KIBBLE ONLY or a beef and rice KIBBLE ONLY that fits the criteria of what I have listed above... THANKS
