If you are anti-kibble, hypoallergenic foods sold by vets come in canned varieties as well.

I kinda agree with Caroline429 that you may be wasting your time and money with that food if it contains foods that you have fed before like eggs. My girl is allergic to many ingredients in premium kibble. It seems like 98% of premium kibble, canned, and dehydrated raw has at least one ingredient she is allergic to.. She is allergic to chicken/turkey, barley, green peas, carrots, kelp, and eggs. The point of an elimination diet is to feed something that your dog has never eaten before as base if you will. If after feeding these ingredients you see an improvement then you know you have food allergies, and if not then you dont. Once you see an improvement you can add ONE different ingredient to see if there is a reaction after 8-12wks. If there is an adverse reaction then allergic if not then not allergic. It takes a long time but then you can say for sure which foods are or are not allergenic.

Trust me I have racked my brains just trying to find ANY premade food she can eat! Have you checked out Addiction foods? The reason many have good results with that food is that most of that food has novel ingredients like kangaroo, rabbit, and brushtail. Unfortunately for me all the kibble and dehydrated raw has at least one ingredient that my girl is allergic to like egg, kelp and carrots. She can have one of the can formulas and their allergy formula.

"good quality kibble"

Unfortunately, it's not quality kibble (but it's hydrolysed and balanced). Hill's z/d kibbles:
Starch, Hydrolyzed Chicken Liver, Soybean Oil (preserved with BHA, propyl gallate and citric acid), Powdered Cellulose, Hydrolyzed Chicken, [and a whole bunch of minor salts, vitamines, additives).

Our dog *definitely* had bad allergic reaction to these kibbles; something similar that she had from rice. So we switched to z/d canned food - it is still the last thing our poodle wants to eat, but at least it produced no adverse reaction.

I am fighting it, but the poor dog has been walking around wagging his head back and forth like his world is hopeless (Of course it's in his ears) I've tried keeping him away from chicken, and feeding only beef with raw eggs and cooked pumpkin for 1 1/2 weeks, he seemed to be getting worse, so I dropped the egg. I thought he was a tad better, but when I cleaned his ears yesterday there was blood in the ear, so I'm wondering if it could be the beef. And he has very loose stools, cause he's not getting his bone (He used to get that from Chicken carcasses) I am going to try K9 freeze dried Venison for a week to see if that will help, but this food is EXPENSIVE! And it has egg in it :( Has anyone else gone through this with a raw fed dog???? I would really appreciate help, as I DO NOT want to go the kibble route!!( And I realize it may NOT be food related, but vet says it's the logical place to start.)
I was just answering someone on another thread about allergies. Jake was switched to raw maybe when he was 6 y.o. and it helped his allergies (itchy, ears, etc.) initially, and I was feeding him the raw chicken, etc., and well, believe it or not he then developed a terrible allergy to the chicken --- the holistic vet couldn't figure it out, but he could never have chicken after that, and was still ok raw fed (although I switched to a PMR without chicken). He could not even have cooked chicken after that without throwing his tummy into a roll......her reasoning is that since he had so much raw chicken, he could have developed a sensitivity to it. No idea, but it did happen to us, too.

I feel like a terrible SpooMama, but I couldn't handle the head wagging and discomfort!!! I caved and switched him to SENSITIVITY + SHINE™ Salmon dry food. No egg in this as well as a protein he rarely got. I am also giving him 1 natural fed duck neck once a day,which is a protein he has NEVER had. It's been 3 days, head wagging is definitely reduced, and his ears are clean. The change in food also co-coincided with a trip to the cabin, change of house as well as climate change, so it could just be the change in environment :( I am at the cabin till next week, so I guess if it gets worse when we go home, I'll know there's a good chance it's environmental.
