    @KelseyandAtticus...PetsMart carries Avoderm which has 2 or 3 grain-free flavors and is great for skin
    and coat conditions, I've got my new Bully on the Red Meat & Meal, Grain-free and doing well, is his 3rd
    ​food trial.

    I really tend not to get involved on food and allergy questions...I just wanted to say you are not alone, I have an allergic puppy too and we are just clearing up his reaction to his last food by feeding bland diet, before we change him onto the next choice...this way I can be sure that any reaction is due to the new food and not being carried over from the last. Just a way I have chosen to do it...and that the hives are already clearing up just 1 day off his old food does confirm that it was the food that caused this.

    by the way

    HI,

    Is it possible for you to post some pics? A picture is worth a 1000 words.

    Besides known allergies, Bullies can be allergic to many diff items; plastic, wool, grass, etc.

    The process of elimination is a difficult process. First is to rule out any medical issues.
    Beyond that it is a slow process of elimination.

    Keep track in a journal of what changes you make and what works and not works.

    Good Day~

    I have nothing to add to these wonderful posts other than add to what abebd. Stated. I was buying my food from a small business owner and she kept pusing snack samples. Soon Arnold, who has a beautiful coat, had sores. I took away the snacks, quit taking samples, gave an nice cheap oatmeal bath and wala(sp?) His skin improved quickly. Welcome to Ebn!


    I'm a good girl, I promise

    Hello,


    Hahaha food for thought ~ To all of us. Picking the RIGHT food is what works best for our dogs, right? We have opinions about suggesting to others.

    As was said, take your time, switch slowly over the course of a few days or else you will end up with unintended consequences that might NOT be related to the food but rather switching too fast.

    G'day~

    -imageuploadedbytapatalk1345305856-423062-jpg this is more of what it looks like... He's been wearing a shirt to keep the scratching in the front down... We tried booties but he just gets out of them
