My dog is a fire and wood dog and seems to need always cooling down . He needs cool foods. But he is also a service dog for my food allergies and celiac. He can not have wheat, barley, or rye. Does chill have anyone of those three ? He cant have chicken, lamb, and venison because of needing cool foods.
Thank you for your question! PET | TAO Chill Freeze Dried Raw Formula contains barley. But, we have another option for you! If you'd like to make a version of the Chill recipe at home in a slow-cooker, you can omit barley and choose other ingredients that agree with your fire and wood dog. Here's a link to the recipe: https://pettao.com/energetically-cooling-dog-food-recipe/

Thank you for your question! Kidney issues are often supported by energetically cooling diets in Eastern Food Therapy. You're on the right track by feeding PET | TAO's kidney treats - they support the kidneys according to the Five Element Theory. We recommend using PET | TAO's Chill formula because it's energetically cooling overall. The main protein is duck, which is coolinng. For dogs with kidney issues, we recommend hydrating the freeze dried food with warm water to provide extra moisture. Also, there may be herbs that can help your dog! You can check with your vet and request authorization here if you're interested: https://tcvmpet.com/pages/get-an-authorization

Thanks for your question! We have a number of products that can help support dogs with Cushing's disease. TCVM veterinarians usually recommend energetically cooling formulas for Cushing's. These diets may help support kidney issues as well, especially when rehydrated with warm water. Also, Freeze Dried Kidney Treats can support kidney issues. There are also herbs available for Cushing's that can treat the root causes and deficiencies that lead to Cushing's symptoms. These herbs have to be authorized by a vet, but all PET | TAO foods, treats, and supplements do not require authorization.
