I just ordered Natures Variety Limited ingrediant to see if it'd work for my chi. She seems to really like it. I'm only going to use it as a standby if I have trouble getting raw or ZP.

Do you know what is in the food that is causing her problems?

I would probably try the limited ingredient Acana.

If its the pancreatitis then its the fat content,and she will need to be on a low fat diet.Doctor actually said ,if not treated her pancreas could start digesting itself!!!The blue buffalo wilderness(which is an excellent food) the fat content is 15%, the mess they have her on today(Hills i/d is 9% and is not a good food).Her hair is finally growing back and I dont want the lack of a good food to make her go backwards.Both vets swear by it ,but I know better.

I found a list of "low fat content" foods for you
Suggested Low Fat Dog Foods

Not sure if their rate will be low enough, though. But there are a couple for the Blue Buffalo line if you're stuck on that food (it is a decent food). I see there Simply Nourish's canned food is only 8% fat, it's Petsmart's competitor to Blue and Wellness.

Thanks yes we like blue wilderness, its rated a #5 food. I just looked at the site,very helpful!The stuff they have her on today,is 22% protein and 9% fat.When the doctor calls,I will ask what does the fat content need to be and I will get this list out that I just printed from that web sight and go from there.
