Finding the Best Food for a Golden Retriever with Allergies

When it comes to our beloved pets, every pet parent's top priority is their health and happiness. This is the story of Willow, a spirited 1.5-year-old Golden Retriever, and her owner Jen’s quest to find the best food for a Golden Retriever dealing with allergies.

Willow is allergic to chicken and beef. She has IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) and ... was on a diet of very processed vet diet kibble from a major brand pet food company... She was not very happy...

While this controlled her immediate issues, it wasn't a sustainable solution, and Willow started putting on weight.

The turning point came when their new vet suggested a shift to Go! Solutions Sensitivities Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Duck recipe—a recommendation that aligned perfectly with Willow’s needs.

We saw a different vet and he recommended putting her on Go! Solutions Duck dry food since it is a single protein food that she is not allergic to... We followed his advice (while also checking in with our main vet who agreed it was worth a try).

The switch to Go! Solutions marked a significant shift in Willow's overall well-being.

Within one week ... her weight had stopped increasing (and now she is losing weight through a carefully managed diet), her tummy is no longer inflamed and no longer has chronic diarrhea. She can also tolerate lamb. It is a massive relief for us.
