Feeding your Sensitive Stomach Great Dane

In my experience it appears that Great Danes, among many other breeds have sensitive stomachs and allergies to certain ingredients and foods.  I used my best resources (my puppy owners!) to compile a list of food and supplements that have worked well for my owners and their dogs, and also foods that have not worked for them.  I hope this can help you, if you're searching for a food to feed your sensitive Dane.  You may notice some foods on both lists!  Results listed in Alphabetical Order.
