    You may want to have his eye checked out, he may have lashes growing inward rubbing his eye. (Entropion)

    @bullmama - I looked that up as a possibility, while I don't think that's it, you never know. Sometimes his eye doesn't look that bad, so it's kinda in waves. Anyhow, we have a 8:15am vet appt tomorrow to have it checked out. Pray for me, I'm a nervous wreck when it comes to my baby.

    We have Banks on Fromm Pork and Peas ... her yeast issue were horrible till I found the Fromm line. There are other lines just as good too... Nature's Vareity, Taste of the Wild, Orejin, Acanea are a few I can think of

    Yes! That is our next trip after the vet tomorrow. Saturday I'm going to go buy him Fromm's, and start a slow transition to see how he does. I really really hope this helps, and its nothing serious with his eye tomorrow.

    @2BullyMama @bullmama @davidh @Blueberrys Mom - Just wanted to update ya'll - We took Tyson to the vet this morning, and the verdict is Allergies! Severe allergies Both environmental and possibly food related. She gave us a steroid (Prednisolone), Ketoconazole, and Cephalexin for relief, and said the baby needs to lose at least 10 lbs. Also, she wants his food switched, although he's been on grain free Salmon/Sweet Potato Natural Balance, she said they can get an intolerance to it after a long time... so we need to completely switch the protein, he will be on a 2 month trial, limited to just his food, no treats, no supplements, no nothing to see how he responds. He's not gonna like it too much in the beginning, but we know its for his health, and so very thankful its not anything serious. We're looking into FROMMS, Orejin, and Acanea tonight...I've heard good from all, so wish us luck!

    Default Eye Allergies or Infection?

    Sounds like Tyson is going to get some relief. The meds given to him will help tremendously! But watch out, they can give you a false sense of security.... The symptoms will likely return a few weeks after the meds are done. Finding the source of the allergies is the hardest (but most important) part.

    Check out the allergy article if you haven't already, it will help you in different treatment options.

    Tyson is going to be feeling so much better soon!

    You are so right Bullmama!!! The Vet said just that, she said the meds will work great & get him feeling better, but they are never healed, just controlled....She said she doesn't think the food is the biggest culprit since he's never had food allergies before. She says she thinks its more environmental because this year has been the worse she's seen with horrible allergies in other dogs as well... but still recommends the food change, which we were already considering anyhow. I just know he's gonna be a little disappointed in no more treats, etc for a while. LOL

    Hopefully once the season is over, Tyson will start to feel better!

    When you change food, the one thing you need to make sure of it that it only has one protein. You need to read the ingredients to do that, don't go by the name alone as most kibble have multiple sources of protein.
    So Fromm's Salmon Tunalini, also has Chicken Liver and Chicken fat. Both ingredients are far down the list which means they're included in small amounts, but if you really want to find out if it's a protein allergy, you need to stick with one protein.
    A limited ingredient formula would be best. That's really the only way to do it.

    Hope on e of the new foods makes the difference for him.... we had the issue with Banks, she is allergic to chicken and has a sensitivity to salmon so I started feeding the Fromm Pork and Peas, alot of her issues went away.

    Best of luck... keep up posted

    Thanks 2BullyMama - I think I'm going with the pork & peas, it seems to be just one protein (besides egg) - hoping it works great for him like it did for Banks The other is Acana - Pork & Butternut Squash... but leaning more towards the Fromm. I love all the fruits, and coconut oil it also has!

    She did good on Beef Frittata too, but Lamb and lentil did not agree with her at all
