Weight Control dog food with no red dye
mistydawn777 posted:
I have an 8 yr old German Shepherd female that is allergic to red dye in dog food. Her vet has insisted that we put her on weight control dog food. Is there a resource (preferably on the web) where I can find dog foods that are weight control AND have no red dye?

Either Google "additive free dog foods" and look for foods with low carbohydrates and high protein, or Google "natural dog foods" and look at the ingredient list. They should show you the various dyes etc in the food. You can also check manufacturer websites like blue buffalo and dogswell and taste of the wild, even if they don't have a specific "weight control formula" look for things lower in grain and higher in protein.
