In the above, I was wondering what the purpose of "yeast culture" was? Does anybody know? Also, if I suspect Joey is allergic to mold, is this going to be a problem for him? I like the ingredients of this food (Canine Caviar) but am a little hesitant to feed it because of the yeast culture, plus possibly the millet and alfalfa, as I like to keep grains to a minimum.
Also, the food claims to have a good ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6, by my calculations. That's a plus for me, as Joey has allergies (though we're not sure what - inhalant, food, or other)and I like the idea of a good amount of O-3. Is the kelp providing the O-3, I assume?
Are the other things like FOS, fenugreek, rose hips, and other things just thrown in to attract people who are into holistic and healthy a lot more than I am, or are they serving a useful purpose?
I am hoping to get something that is not going to be a problem for an allergic dog, and one who might have a bit of a sensitive stomach. I do not know what, if anything, he is allergic to. I would, however, like to stay away from potatoes of any kind.
