    Default Allergy/Fromm Lamb & Lentil Question

    Fezzik's allergies have been having a major flare up ever since September hit. His face is constantly red as is the area between his ears. His ears are red, but not yeasty or dirty. He is constantly licking his paws. I am stepping up his face and paw cleaning and soaking regimens, but I wanted to try a switch in his food.

    I think he does well on the Hasen Duckenpfeffer, but his face is still usually red so I wanted to try something without potatoes. Has anyone tried the Lamb and Lentil?

    Personally I didn't have good results with any of the Fromms we tried: pork and peas, beef frittata but for some reason the lamb and lentil was the worst. I've read a lot of positive posts about the duck variety but mine doesn't do well with duck (bad tear stains) I'm having good results with natures variety salmon it's a great food just wish it wasn't so pricey

    Fezzik seems allergic to chicken. I've tried pork and peas, beef frittata, and hassen deuckenpfeffer. He has done best on the hassen duckenpfeffer and his coat really started to feel sleek. His face redness never went away no matter how often I cleaned it or what I used. This past month he has been itchy and has pink skin on the top of his head and ears where he normally doesn't.

    It is probably environmental, but I'm not certain it couldn't be the food since he has never been perfect on it. I think allergy testing is in store for this bubba.

    Agree... i see allergy test will help. Lambeau is allergic to so much in the environment it is hard to keep his eyes from watering

    We found out that Harlea is allergic to lamb when we tried it but my other pup does great on it.

    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Bentley has been eating the various Fromm products. Beef Frittata, Lamb with Lentil, and Pork and Peas gave him the itches. Currently, Bentley is eating Pork and Applesauce without any problem.

    Bentley is the same way and his R ear is giving him trouble. We are going to the vet with him this afternoon and I will post what we find out. I am attributing this to yeast as he has been licking his paws, scratching his chin, and R ear. Mug and paws are red. Hmmm...sounds like Paw and mouth disease. on a more serious note, i will post after we return from the vet.

    Bentley is missing his sister right now even though I took him with to drop her off this morning.
