    What a sweet face your Rocco has!!! Chicken could be the issue, my girl gets hives from it. She also gets pink ichy skin from salmon.

    I agree w/the gang… sounds like chicken could be the culprit. Also don't rule out grass… we had a dog allergic to grass, and she was miserable outside.

    Considering it's allergy season, and his hives and itching started recently, I wouldn't change the food out (yet).

    Try Claritin. For a 60 lb bullie I give Claritin (unflavored) 5mg ever 12 hours. Or, the 10mg every 24 hours. The Claritin needs to be unflavored.

    Update! We decided to take Rocco off of Blue Buffalo the freedom one.im making his food now stil giving him chicken with rice.its only been what two days. I took him a bath with relief shampoo. Happy to say today and yesterday he looks good not itchy as bad.we notice his eyes are not watery in his nose is not as water either his hives gone down giving him zyrtec once a day. We also noticed when we cut the grass and he uses the potty right after he gets itchy so it could be the grass.thank u all for your help.if he dose flare up again with hives then we will switch 2 beef or turkey but so far so good.

    So glad he's finding some relief, I hope he continues to improve. It could still be environmental allergies to grass, trees, pollen etc. it's spring and normal for this time of the year, even us humans are suffering with sneezing , itchy watery eyes, and stuffy noses. Not much we can do other than treat symptoms, antihistamines, vaporizer with eucalyptus oil, and wiping his feet with wet ones or baby wipes after walking outside on the grass to remove allergens. It should get better when the air conditioning is turned on, as this helps with air equality when spring and summer bring allergies. Also keeping walks to early morning and in the evenings will help as well.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
