    Is an allergy test expensive ? How much would I expect to pay ?
    we paid between $125.00 - $150.00. Believe me, I wish I knew about it the day we picked up Nitschke. What that poor bully went through for the first year.. we were treating him for tumy issues... which is usually chicken/rice... well, after the aleergy test, we found out the reall issue .. he is HIGHLY allergic to rice. UGH! Once that was out of the picture no more vomitting or runny poo. The test is worth every penny.

    Ouch, poor guy. I decided to get the allegery testing done on both my boys back in July not because they were having any problems but because I didn't want to play a guessing game. I got the results in the mail about 10 days later. Wilson is allergic to chicken, pork, rice and soybean. Jack's allergic to eggs and rice. The report was about 5 pages and also included grasses, molds, etc. It was $$ well spent. My test cost $195 each. Hope your baby gets better soon.

    Thanks for all the great advise I called DrButchko today and the result are in My poor baby is allergic to chicken, rice, beef pork and fleas. She is on a chicken and rice diet that I was told to give her by DrButchko because she wasn't eating due to the intense itching and had lost 6 pounds well he told me ton take her off the rice and chicken and to start her on a new dog food formula I just got off work and I'm on my was to Global pet food outlet in Torrance and they sale high grade foods any advice on a brand I'll make sure it's free of all the about ingredients and as for the fleas we already new she had the allergy to them her breeder told us it might be a 85% possibility do she has been on Advantage plus since she was 3months
    Thanks everyone hope some one gets back to me soon on the brand. Hopefully this solve this problem within my family. so hopeful and I she will be more happy when it's all over. And she hasn't scratched since she's on the antibiotics. Fingers crossed!!

    yay for you knowing now. That will make life much easier! If it were me then I would try the fromm surf and turf then. Course I use fromm anyhow. There are other great choices also but thats what I would choose. Try petflow.com. Shipping is free if you put in code ebn and only 5 bucks I think otherwise. Ships to your door in a week or less (from what I can personally say anyhow)

    YEA.... now your baby will be feeling better in no time! RC Bulldog is all rice and chicken, poor baby was just getting slammed -- so glad you did the allergy test and now know what to do.

    Thanx for letting us know the results. I hope that store has someone there that is knowledgeable on the products they carry. You are probably going to have to do a lot of label reading to find what you are looking for. Good luck to both of you.

    Wow that's a whole lot of allergies. I do hope you find a dog food that works. HOwever, I would go with the smallest bag possible to start. I agree that fish seems to be the way forward but be warned that if you look at the label then most foods have a tiny bit of chicken in.
