It’s definitely worth the money to get them allergy tested at the vet (not the home tests) I put my girl on the fresh food company Ollie. It’s amazing. She is 9 now and so healthy and happy

No frills working dog biscuits, and green tripe. I used to breed shar-pei’s and never had a problem feeding them like this. The tripe also gives them a nice shiny coat.
