My vet recommended trying only salmon dog food and duck treats. It seemed to really help. I didn’t have him allergy tested but chicken and common proteins seemed to be the problem.

We adopted a 1 yr old ACD. From a rescue. He was at the vet about every month for antibiotics and nausea meds. Everything made him throw up and diarrhea.We even tried cooking his food. I was at the vet one more time and started talking to a lady she said hers had the same problem and to try Purina Pro Plan salmon and rice formula for sensitive stomach and skin. It’s been a year now and he has not been sick once. Maybe worth a try. Good luck.
