I would boil chicken with rice and pumpkin in a can. You could gradually add peas and carrots if he or she tolerates the chicken and rice

Honestly start with boiled chicken (grind it up) then slowly add different types of kibble based on tolerance. We use science diet that has a Boston Terrier on the bag. Helps gas and stomach upset.

My Boston is allergic to poultry. Even byproducts. I found Blue Basics has a couple of versions with no poultry whatsoever. Also I make some food with salmon, steak, ahi blood meat, apple, and spinach. Blend it up, freeze it in ice trays and thaw a couple cubes each day for her. She’s 14, fat and happy .

I make home made food for our girl. I make a large portion in the slow cooker and then put it in individual baggies in the freezer, then I take one out t he night before and put in ref. over night to thaw. The one I made this time has green beans, squash, chicken, brown rice, pumpkin in can 100% just pumpkin. I add the mixture to a small amount of kibble. After adding all together I add Salmon oil. She loves it. I also use fish when I buy fish I get a small extra piece. I do not use beef due to her allergy with it. There are so many options, you just have to find what your dog likes. It is actually fun to add these fresh ingredients to the slow cooker and make healthy food for her, that she loves.
