|A friend has a dog with serious intestinal condition requiring a super-lowfat diet. He also has a lot of protein intolerances, meaning there's not a lot he can eat. He was eating one commercial diet that was extremely low-fat and used an unnamed "fish" as its first ingredient and sole protein source. They had experimented repeatedly with other commercial and home-made diets, and never found anything else that he could eat safely.
Recently the company that made the Mystery Fish canned food changed the formula, to include things they already know he can't eat. They've been hoarding cans scared up from all over the country, and experimenting with adding in alternative proteins, trying to find something he can eat.
He can eat tofu. They're working with UCDavis vets to develop a tofu-based diet to transition to as the cans run out.
But that's a really special case.
