    Yes, did it with both Nitschke and Banks.... full screen blood allergy test. They are not fully accurate, but it gives you a great starting point of what to avoid. Most vets will tell you to not 'waste' the money, but myself and our vet believed it was a great way to lessen some of the issues. Also, without it, I would have never known Nitschke was allergic to rice and kept feeding bland diet (rice/chicken) because even our vet thought his constant throwing up was due to something in the food and because it continued on the bland he said when he turns 2 we will do the blood screen and see what comes up.... we did that , identified the rice, removed it from his diet and within a day -- he was like a puppy again. He had about 8 very bad months, but the rest of his life he was one very happy, healthy, snuggle bully!

    Hmmm... well if Winston keeps up w/this, I may go ahead & do it. I didn't do it for his momma Bella, and we had issues w/her for years. Mostly just skin problems, nothing too serious thankfully... Thanks so much for your insight, I appreciate it!!!
