    Maybe it is the food change. If it started within a few days of the change, I would say that's what it likely is.. can you go back to the other food?
    well, the reason why i switched to this latest was b/c Finn was still itching but not as bad as he is now(!) That was Merrick Beef which he was on for about 3 months, and I switched to Merrick limited ingredient salmon. I just got a new food in the mail today: Earthborn Holistic Limited Ingredient Lamb. I am currently home cooking for them right now though and will transition to the Earthborn soon.
    I feel like i'm playing a game of food hopscotch!

    Nuvet is an immune system builder so you may want to get him back on asap, whenever I run out I can tell in a week, they just don't "glow" anymore. Especially it has a natural antihistamine in it which probably helps him a lot with his allergies.

    Lamb is great for my crew but it's usually considered a "hot" protein, which means many pets are allergic to it.

    Hope it works! Paws crossed!

    I Pray his itching will be cured. NuVet has a automatic refill that you can schedule when you want it delivered to you, I have it delivered every 3 months, I get two bottles at a time, this is really great for Bulldogs, and all dogs. This may stop his scratching, also I feed Elmo Fromm dry dog food, I order different taste for him every now and then, He also get 1 tablespoon of Canidae canned food, chicken and rice. His skin is Great and he does not scratch himself. I hope this helps you with Precious Finn. Also Elmo gets Salmon oil and yogurt every morning before I feed him his breakfast. Love To Finn, kisses and more kisses.

    Good luck. I know the food game is very difficult. I remember getting migraines while trying to figure out what worked and what didn't for Blue.

    OK, I am going to be the odd man (women) out. Vegas has been on Earthbourne Lamb for over two years. He does wonderful on it!! No tear stains, no nothing. I also give NuVet and Grizzly Salmon oil. BUT his environmental allergies are out of control. I know it has nothing to do with his food. He is itching really bad right now, and constantly licking his feet. We are in rainy season here in FL. where it monsoons every single day for about 10 min. then hot and sunny again. 100% environmental. He itches so bad he too has some sores which I use Vetermycin on. Along with that some bald spots on his back legs (had a scrape no mange) so it is truly just the season for allergies. Benadryl does give some relief but he is itching more than normal right now. I hope the food agree's it sure did with Vegas.

    woohoo, @KMARINO, thanks for the positive testimony for EH lamb! I do recall giving the boys lamb in the past (Nature's Variety Instinct), and they did do okay on it. I think i switched b/c of Tate's tear stains but i think that's a rather losing battle at the moment. If it's not tear stains, it's the itchies, or it's eye boogers...just looking for some improvement, not perfection at this point!
