No potato dog chews?

Hi everyone!
Does anyone have any recommendations on potato (and sweet potato) free dog chews?

Nyx has terrible diarrhoea if he has any potato or sweet potato and it seem like all dental chews have potato starch or "derivatives of vegetable origin". He's fine with grains ect ect.

Pup doesn't seem at all interested in non edible chews (apart from hats and his one frisbee and the furniture). We've tried pretty much all of them from the cheap ones at tesco, nylabone and rubbery ones (kong included).

He currently has 2 empty bones lying around that he has lost interest in and that one frisbee.

I've so far decided to order some fish skin chews and buffalo dental chews by Pet Munchies (anyone have any opinions on these apart from the fact that he will be STINKY?)
Could anyone reccomend any potato free chews?

Have you tried stuffing Kongs or Toppls? You can stuff them with so many different things. I often just take kibble and a bit of canned food, and you can even freeze them to make them last longer. There are HUGE varieties of other things, too...if you google "Kong stuffing recipes" you'll find a TON of can start with just a tiny taste of things to see how your dog does with them. I do fruits, cottage cheese, cooked eggs, yogurt...the possibilities are endless. My dogs LOVE them.

I occasionally give things like bully sticks, tracheas, those kinds of things.

You could also try "No Hides" - they are a rawhide alternative and are potato free.

I'm not sure about potato but dogs can eat broccoli, but only with moderation. This is because broccoli consumed in large quantities can have an adverse effect on your pet’s health. Broccoli is an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid, manganese, omega-3 acid, zinc, and calcium. It also slows down the aging process in dogs and fights cancer while improving your dog’s health.
