Unfortunately all the Fromm grain frees except Beef Frittata have chicken in them somewhere. Chicken and beef are common allergens only because they are commonly used in dog food. My dogs never actually got beef when they ate kibble so beef was fine for them. If you otherwise like Fromm try the beef. Just feed less to your little one, Fromm is a powerful food and she probably just needs a little less of it.

If you are determined to try other foods then Nature's Variety and Back to Basics both have super simple formulas that are nice and high in protein. Most brands of dog food have simple formulas that have grains in them as well but the other grain free simple kibbles are low protein. There are several very expensive raw type dried foods like Ziwi Peak and Real Meat Pet Food and others that are only meat, organ, bone or calcium plus a binder. Sassy did better on home cooked food than kibble, could try Honest Kitchen or Sojo's or one of the other premixes as they are made an entirely different way. Or go to home cooking or raw, my preference. Either form of fresh food is cheaper than Ziwi Peak or HK for sure.

There is a huge chance that the problem isn't food though. Most allergies are environmental, not food. Sassy was horribly allergic to fleas and licked her feet and itchy thighs, Raymond licked his feet because he was allergic to grass. I rarely saw a flea on Sassy but if she was on flea drops she felt better. Raymond stopped licking his feet when we went on a camping trip where he was just on dirt and he also responded to a simple antihistamine. Full disclosure, Max always was pretty good on any food but he gets full on ear gunk when he gets sardines of all things. Hate that that happens but easy enough to avoid since he eats raw food I make up myself.
