@Costa Rica Bride:  I feed addiction brand raw dehydrated food.  It’s not inexpensive, but it does have unique protein sources that your pup may not be allergic to.  Also chedk out the dry dog food tab.  

Hope you can find something that will work.  Allergic puppies are hard to deal with.

@Costa Rica Bride:  Considering all his allergies, is he on some kind of daily antihistamine?

@Costa Rica Bride:  Wow! I have never heard of a puppy with all those allergies. I am so glad you are sticking with your pup and doing what is best for him and not what is easiest for you, such as getting rid of him 🙁 What a great furmama you are!

Can you share a picture of him?! I would be hesitant to recommend anything in case it caused a reaction in him. I think maybe his vet would be the best person to make recommendations just in case. Someone must have started catering to this niche market.

@Costa Rica Bride:  We have a 16 year old kitty with moderate to severe food and seasonal allergies. It’s so hard on her, and it’s a balancing act to keep her comfortable yet not overmedicated, so I feel for you! Keep good records of what seems to be working and not working, and try not to stress about it TOO much. I’ve heard good things about the Clinical Nutrition Service at NCSU.

Poor pup! I’m curious, being allergic to all those meats, what does he actually eat?

Might want to run these by the vet, but I know my mom’s dog loved popcorn as a treat. And my FI’s parents’ dog loves basically everything, including but not limited to most vegetables and fruits. You could also try other fish – tuna? But your vet might be the best source of non-allergenic treat recipes.

@Costa Rica Bride:  that’s one cute dog! I make my own treats a lot!

1c peanut butter

1c milk 

1/2c oats

1 tsp baking soda

mix together and cut (I use a pizza cutter) and bake til golden at 350. 

I sometimes sub a cup of baby food for peanut butter to mix it up. Not sure if he can eat this stuff…

Hey there!  So did you do some kind of test to find out what your dog is allergic to?  My dog has allergies as well, and is currently on a hypoallergenic dog food, my vet told me that there is no type of test…we just have to do trial and error.  I’m thinking of taking my lil Lucy to a different vet!
