I was told yesterday by a dog nutritionist, that if a dog is allergic to chicken, he is allergic to the protein in the chicken, and that does NOT mean he is allergic to chicken fat, and in fact, he would probably handle chicken fat just fine.

Does anyone have any further knowledge on whether or not this is true?

There's two reasons I would really like to know. #1 - It's really hard to find dog treats and food without chicken fat, #2 - As I understand, chicken fat is good for the joints?

Thanks!

I have heard that as well but you don't know for sure unless you have allergy testing done. There are alot of treats out there without chicken anything. Look at some Buddy Biscuits, Sojo's, Honest Kitchen for starters.

depends on the dog, how does your dog react to chicken? it its just itchy I would try something with chicken fat as the only unsure about ingredient and see what happens. my dog that is allergic to chicken also reacts very strongly to the smallest drop of chicken fat, but she is also allergic to darn near everything!
