My old yorkie had allergies to any food colouring, I spent years trying to control his anger issues until a friend of mine suggested maybe it could be the coloured bits in his kibble so I got hills science plan and it took a few weeks but it did improve a lot. He also had grass allergies and spent many hours biting his feet and scratching so I was prescribed a quarter of an antihistamine daily

It was a difficult process of elimination. My dogs have grain and poultry allergy.

Honest kitchen grain free beef clusters. Don’t start me with DCM and grain free. This breed isnt typically predisposed to DCM. I’ve always liked the brand and they are human grade. The only draw back to single batch like this is … sometimes there’s a slight difference in the food that every bag can cause soft stool. I just do a slow transition every bag change to prevent.

No meat. Salmon only..Rachel Rays sweet potato and salmon dry. My girl is 12 yrs old. She ate everything until about 4 yrs old and then the allergies started. Shots, expensive RX shampoo for several years and for last several years, no issues as long as we restrict what she eats.

The best diet for any dog is home cooked salmon, beef , turkey , bake it all. Give vegetables like green beans broccoli some carrots, kale etc. Make sure you cook the veggies too , blueberries, apples , banana, and grain free fresh pet. No chicken dogs are allergic to it. There’s so much to cook for them just Google it.

I make large batches, put in jars & refrigerate . Ground beef, chopped liver, brown rice, green beans, sliced carrots, crushed pineapple, eggs, & sometimes fresh blueberries. Everything is cooked in beef broth & olive oil. When Bonnie scratches I put a dropper of children’s Benadryl in her food.

My wee Yorkie, Bobby has allergies that cause his skin to become lumpy, then burst, then dry out and flake. He’s been on a special diet of Royal Canin Anallergenic for a couple of years now which has made no difference. Hopefully next stage is taking skin allergy tests to find out what the problem is. Only antibiotics clear it up but he’s only good for a few months before it’s back again
