West Coast Canine Life HYPOALLERGENIC Muffin Mix Recipe

Skin sensitivities, including scratching/licking/chewing/smelly skin, yeast overgrowth and chronic ear complaints are a very common problem. Although there are many reasons why dogs suffer from these issues, some foods may trigger them, or make them worse. 

Our holistic approach is treatment with a change in diet and the following is designed to address many common food sensitivity challenges.


  • 5 cups West Coast Canine Life Premix.  
  • 1 cup minced raw green beans (or thawed and drained frozen beans.) 
  • ½ cup minced raw minced squash or pumpkin. (For dogs with suspected allergies, root vegetables, such as carrot, yam or sweet potato, may trigger sensitivities.
  • 1 minced red apple (Red Delicious is our first choice.) 
  • 1 raw egg. 
  • ½  cup PURE  unsweetened cranberry juice (e.g., R.W. Knudsen family or Bremner’s)
  • ½ cup organic sunflower, safflower oil, or Extra Virgin Olive Oil (The oil from the first pressing)
  • 1 ½ lb raw, boneless ground chicken or turkey 
  • ½ to 1 cup filtered water (more or less water  may be required depending on the water content in the ingredients you use)

Start by following the regular recipe above then begin tailoring for your dog's needs by making the following substitutions:

  • Use raw, boneless Whitefish or 3 cans of rinsed tuna as your protein source (or try another protein that you know your dog can tolerate, such as chicken or turkey, or a novel protein that your dog has not been introduced to previously). Beef is not typically suggested as this is considered a “hot” meat. 
  • Use green vegetables, such as green beans, broccoli, zucchini, or bok choy, as these are lower in sugar than most root vegetables.
  • Try making a few batches first, without the egg, and then, without the apple, and note if there are any improvements.
