A lot of good points covered already from food and medication here. Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like your vet knows the breed very well and it might be helpful to look for a vet that has a lot of experience with bulldogs. I especially want to mention this because even low dosage of steroids can make bulldogs susceptible to calcinosis cutis which is a skin issue that looks similarly like allergies. If you do a quick google search of calcinosis cutis bulldogs there are a ton of articles about this.

For Raw diet, I think Bella and Duke is made in UK, I was looking to see if there was raw diets available in UK, but since I’m in Canada I don’t know for sure

@nubonics is 💯 correct. All form of steroids will destroy all gut flora n their immune system will go down no matter what. It takes weeks n months to rebuild the immune system. Why if a dog is on “any” meds to give or mix in their meals a probiotic like fermented sauerkraut or fermented veggies and/or add raw organs as toppers. You need to get the gut going for the whole immune system to kick in.

“If” your vet say no n continue RC, definitely change vets.
