    She is itching everywhere that she can reach. I eliminated the chicken because Ry has a chicken allergy and thought it would be worth a shot since we shouldn't have chicken around Ry anyways. The food Zoe is on she has been eating 3 weeks and the shedding has gotten worse. I dont know if that is because of the last food leaving her body or a reaction to the new food. I felt pretty scammed though when I went to petsmart and the lady said that everything that I had bought wasn't the best when every one of the things was recommeneded by a employee there.
    I'v also heard that Innova is a good food but that's harder to find. And the other foods I haven't heard of, do you think their availible at a feed supply store?
    Thanks,

    Sorry, I meant to say corn and wheat (not rice).

    Interesting reading about the allergies. I had no idea beef was such a common culprit! When we have upset stomachs, I feed boiled ground beef and rice. I know those who feed RAW feed beef, and I always thought that dogs fed RAW suffer from very few food allergies. I'm confused.

    I still think it is something in the hormones and processing causing these allergies and not the meat itself. I pulled that opinion out of the air, but I also think that's why the USA has so much cancer compared to other countries. Almost everything we (as a country) eat is processed and I think it's literally killing us!

    I'm not sure if you can get Orijen or Acana where you live, but I have found it works wonders. My mom's ET was on it for a long time and she switched him and he seems to be doing a lot better! I think the reason is because they are ALL fish ingredients - no chicken - and fish doesn't seem to be a high allergen food.

    Thumbs up

    Our last golden retriever was itchy and allergic from when she was a pup. It finally turned out to not be a food allergy but grass, pollen etc. and soap allergy. We had to take her to specialist for testing.

    Unfortunately we had to treat her with allergy shots, medication and as she aged ( she lived to 12 1/2 yrs.) with frequent baths since her skin got so oily.

    Hope that yours is a food allergy and that you can come up with correct food.

    We feed our cavalier and golden Evo by Innova and have been pleased with results.
