    Punkin was being fed Royal Canin bulldog when we first got him. And my word, he was so red, itchy and he had dandruff! I was surprised the previous owners couldn't take the hint that he wasn't doing well on it. So glad we have him now.

    It can take up to 3 months to see the full benefit of the right food I've read.

    The other positive thing we had happen when HRH had been on Fromm a while is that she doesn't "smell like a dog" and her is a lot less odiferous too.

    Yeah... for one! UGH - on the other. Have you had a blood screen allergy test done? It will give you good information on what to avoid - he could be allergic to the fish or something else in the Surf/Turf.

    Have you added salmon oil or fish oil yet? That can really help with itchy skin and boosts immune system too

    no I should try that! he has been on constant antibiotics and benedryl for a while now. His immune system is probably suffering on top of the food allergy. I will try the salmon oil, which brand do you recommend? Thanks!

    This is awesome advice! Jake did well on Surf n turf..then started showing signs of allergies..turns out the turf..is CHICKEN..which doesn't agree with him. Save yourself time, money and Reilly some misery if you get allergy test.

    Reilly has been allergy tested but the test does not show food allergies through a blood test. He definitely has environmental allergies, but now his dog dermatologist suggests its a food allergy. This stuff is making me insane!

    REALLY?? Because my vet did the test via a blood test that was sent to a allergy test lab (Nellco, i think was the name) and I got a 3 page report listing environmental and food allergies.

    I haven't needed to have an allergy test done ... but I too am puzzled because I thought it would show up environmental and food allergies.

    It sounds as if you are going down the right path by switching to a grain free food, but as @jakebestest said .. there is some chicken in the Surf n Turf. The Beef Frittata is grain and chicken free. You can try the Beef without having to do any slow transition as it is still in the Fromm 4* range, so it might be worth trying that flavour next. There is no harm in trying it!!

    hmmm yeah they told me the food allergies will not be detected from a blood test arg... next time we go back i will ask! but this dog dermatologist is burning a serious hole in my pocket. hoping this food change will help
