You are watching: Can you eat bison if allergic to beef


So, we just got ago Romy"s allergy test and apparently he"s allergic to Chicken, corn, oats and also fish. He"s borderline ~ above Beef.I have been transitioning Romy to NB Bison and Sweet potato and am now confused as to whether I should stop the Bison and also opt because that something else. The Vet seems to think the beef and also Bison are similar however, i did some study on mine own and also found the some execute not agree. Now, I"m entirely confused! I definitely do not want to store feeding him Bison if it could hurt that so ns need any type of advice I have the right to get! many thanks in advance.

Bison is a fully different species than cattle. Ns would absolutely be searching for a brand-new vet if they didn"t recognize that.If you room worried about your pup gift allergic to bison/buffalo too I"d test because that that. It"s unlikely considering that is still a novel protein in dog foods.
I know, right??? i kinda determined he had actually no reservation so ns was quiet about it. As quickly as I gained home ns did my own research. I recognize I would probably gain a far better answer below when that told me he thought Bison to it is in under the same classification as beef. Many thanks for the fast reply. Ns will definitely stick with the Bison

I don"t suppose my vet to understand much about nutrition. If the vet is functioning out otherwise, and if you have a an excellent working partnership with them, as lengthy as you understand what you room doing nutritionally, that"s what matters.Btw, different varieties can still cross-react, somewhere I have a post about beef, venison and also lamb cross-reacting, and your vet may have been thinking about something favor that.

Yeah, i think the if there is a beef allergy, it is common to have other "hot" red meat allergies as well.A lot go hand in hand....if over there is a chicken allergy there can be a turkey allergy or duck allergy, etc.But it"s a little bit of a crap shoot uneven you test because that it. Her vet could be wrong or could be right. I"m assuming due to the fact that you"re asking bison wasn"t component of the test?
No, ns didn"t precisely ask for Bison however then ns didn"t ask about any particular food group. The Vet just ran that , and he said that it would certainly tell us all that he is allergy to.

I have actually been wonder the specific same thing! i am suspecting a beef allergy (among various other things) for among my dogs. The other non-allergy dog is eating the NB Sweet Potato & Bison, with an excellent results. I am hoping that after the said 12 mainly on Rx food, ns can shift her (the allergy dog) to the NB Bison. Ns am worried about the Bison resulting in her allergies to flare up.
