    @Cooper11 At least you know what he is allergic to now. Wipe him off when he comes inside!! You won't see immediate results when you start allergy shots (if you decide to do this). Allergy shots are given to build up immunity to the allergens. The allergy shots introduce what he is allergic to in increased increments to his body so Cooper can build antibodies against the allergens. Over time, you should see less reaction to what he is allergic to. With his environmental allergies, it will be difficult to prevent contact with what he is allergic to!

    Is it wrong for to almost just want to keep him on the fromm....He looks great and act fine. I just got a different anitbiotic last night for his toes and gave him one last night nd this morning and his toes look awesome today!!!! He has still been eating the fromm beef fritatta and I just don't understand how he has allergies to ingrediant in it but not showing any reaction.

    @desertskybulldogs I got a medicated shampoo too...they didn't have your brand but said the one they gave me had everything in it that the one you mentioned did. They also told me to let him soak in it for 10 minutes and I did that as well. He got his bath last night and his coat looks awesome...no more bumpy scabby things on his neck and back, and he is white as can me. I can't even see his bald spot at all anymore!

    @Cooper11 If he is doing fine, I would continue as you are at this time. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!! At least you know what you are dealing with if he starts having problems!!

    thats what I am thinking also....but he did get a cortisone shot last thursday so that could be helping...I think it takes a couple weeks to wear off....
    SO we will see....I wonder if the sweet potatoes where what case the red in between the toes....cause that game out of nowhere!

    @Cooper11 ok im going to be the grim reaper. im sorry but i do not agree with keeping a dog on something with known allergens in it. and yes a steroid and antibiotics will mask any problems that maybe coming from a food allergen or any other allergen. i think coops issues could well be coming from that. why not put him on something with no allergens in it and see how he does. with all of his outside allergies why would you add problems to it with food. hope i dont make ya mad but thats just my opinion dear. from someone whose been there and done that and still doing it

    i agree with Sandra, right now he is still having symptoms of allergies so it could be environmental or food. Some environmental stuff you can't change like grass which is everywhere but food is something you can change.

    Are you Serious!!!! ......just joken with ya! Sandra do you really think I would get mad at you!! I am the one asking you for ideas! Yeah i am thinking different food too...because I have a feeling it is the steroid and the antibiotic that is making him look so good and his eyes are still watering...no tear stains but the on eye is always wet! My point on keeping the food is that isn't the allergy shot a shot of the stuff his is allergic to...to get him immune to them??? Maybe I am wrong....I didn't know if I kept giving him the food he would just adjust to it. But don't worry momma bear I will change! :picknose:

    I am sure that since your food panel does not have too many allergens you can try many different awesome foods.

    Now about the shots. I have only had one dog with allergy issues, that was sarah, the one I told you about in the "Our Mission" article. We did get her the desensitizing shots. First it was everyday, then every other day, then every few days, ect ect... Did they work? I don't know. We left our area (she was tested in Tucson) and were traveling to hot humid allergy ridden places that made her miserable. She went to live with Linda who kept her stable for many years, then she moved back to Tucson, is on a great dog food and looks great. So I think they did work, but it took years to find out that it did. She is 9 years old now, with as many steriod shots she got while she was young I am surprised she lived past the age of 6.

    My point? Worth a "Shot"

    No pun intended!

    We did the shots for Nitshcke... but I never really noticed any change. We did them for two years and then we opted to stop them. Banks we opted out of the shots as she is too much of a drama queen with needles and how we felt about Nitschke's results.

    Good luck with Cooper..... keep baby wipes by the door and wipe him when you come in
