This food is a must in the arsenal for pug allergies.
The most recent popularity of "grain-free" dog food is a sign that dog owners are aware that grain could be a cause of their dog's food sensitivity; but the truth is that not all grain is on the list of allergens. If you suspect allergies, do not assume it is the grain. That been said, a less-expensive method of isolating the allergens causing discomfort and skin disease, rather than the cost of expensive tests, is to eliminate ingredients in the pug food.
Many harmful ingredients are starting to be eliminated by some manufacturers in the pet food industry. Way back soy, wheat and corn were dissapearing from some brands then gluten. Some manufacturers then realized (or were pressured by the public) to eliminate beef (the number one allergen in dog food), and offer other forms of meat and protein.
||Lamb and fish as the source for protein became popular, as well as a bit later, rabbit and others. However, even though some allergens may have been eliminated in this way, many more can still be present. The only way, then, to find more culprits is to eliminate all of them one by one! When you see that label on the pet food, the list is enormous. The grocery store brands have the longest (and no wonder they are the unhealthiest), then some of the pet stores brands have less and now newer and smaller manufacturers are putting out some decent formulas compared to the former. With these fewer ingredients, somehow, someone started on the grain (as opposed to meat or other source), there-by the explosion of grain-free dog food. Many pug owners do claim to have seen relief of some symptons in their dogs with these formulas.
Now, another step in the quest for eliminating allergens is the limited ingredient pug food. In these formulas of limited ingredient dog food, because there are fewer ingredients it becomes easier to isolate allergens. If a pug is experiencing allergies and the formula is limited to four ingredients one only needs to eliminate three (or four) ingredients.
Perhaps one of the reasons that grain was thought of as a culprit of allergens is the belief that the original biological family of Canidae, the lineage of carnivorans that includes domestic dogs, wolves, foxes, jackals, coyotes, and many other extant and extinct dog-like mammals, did not eat grain; and this is only correct to an extent. The Canidae ate (aside from meat) ate nuts, fruit and grain too. In addition, these animals after attacking their prey, devoured their organs first. The stomachs (and other organs) contained what the prey had eaten themselves. Most of the prey were herbivores (plant material including grain of course) and frugivores.
Grain-free pug food is definitely one way to start your pug on a healthy path to eliminating allergies and pug health problems. After this start, should you feel that your pug is not allergic to grains, you can reintroduce it to grains by starting with one of our grain formulas.

Why we don't include meat in our California Gold Small Dog Pet Food:
We know that pet food is recalled because it was contaminated, usually by an organism in the food that can cause illness in the pet--such as salmonella. Salmonella is usually associated with animal producst such as eggs, egg products, meat, meat products, etc.
This is the main reason why we don't have meat or meat products in our food. We believe in supplying you with the cleanest product from the beginning.
You can then be the supervisor of introducing the best, healthiest specific selection of meat or other animal product into the food for your pug, should you desire to introduce these.
