    You really have to give it a good 30 days to get the old food out of his system. If he gets worse then there is a common ingredient in both foods that may not be agreeing with him

    Did you try the Benadryl (the pink, plain original tablets - not any of the ones with extra stuff in it)? That should help with the itching a little.

    Good Evening, how's that little guy tonight, is he still scratching? My vet always said that they react different to Benedryl, we would never take as much as they would,jeesh. 25 mg. per 25 pounds is on the light side of a dose. My Jack weighs 100 pounds and sometimes he gets staph infection. The vet says to give him 5 benedryl 3 times a day. To me that's an awful lot of drug.

    It sure is. The food thing can drive you nuts. I think the peeps that feed raw have the best results.

    i was wondering how he was now. seems to me it got worse with the food switch. could also be fleas. ive had devil of a time with sarah and fleas. she is better now i got rid of them. totw bison and blue both have many things that could be causing this. maybe get a spray bottle filled with water and spray him down to wash him off after being outside for the back and a wet washcloth and water for the rest. have you tried zyrtec maybe instead of benadryl or add some benadryl to the dosage. have you put some hydrocortisone cream on it for itching and swelling then powder after seems to sooth sarah when she has skin issues. i was wondering if an anti bacterial like duoxo spray and maybe some duoxo shampoo for when you do shampoo him as it helped sarahs skin when she had to fleas. maybe a bland diet of beef and rice to see if that helps. that may require some prednisone from the vet just for a short time to get back on track. let us know what the vet says.

    Holy cow, sending good thoughts your way. (Sorry I can't dampen your fears; we just got a bully last week and I have zero idea what I'm doing at this point)

    That's good to hear!!! Must definitely be allergies then. Make note of the different ingredients in the two foods - could be something in the old food that might also show up in treats, etc.
