I think my pitty has food allergies

I have a 19mntg old female brindle pocket pitty. we adopted her from sspca over a year ago. we put her on Max Nutro skin and coat because she was fighting dermatitis. over your that we've had her she's constantly had ear infections vet said cud be food or skin allergies but our vet is outrageous overpriced so I decided to make my own dog food I'm assuming she's allergic to the grain some only giving her protein and veggies. either grilled chicken breast or ground turkey meat cooking course make the green beans sweet potatoes or carrots. I was at in cheese but she starts scratching againn got an infection so I stopped now. any advice better recipes something I'm doing wrong. I just want don't want my baby miserable

Well I am sorry your pup is having issues. Not fun. I think home cooking is good but only with tons if research and supplements. You are on the right track. It could take 6 weeks to show improvements when you change food. How long are you giving it? I would stay way from chicken though. Have you thought of switching to a high quality grain free kibble? Like Acana Pacifica regionals or something like that? Have you don't allergy testing at the vet to have the rule out allergies and not do the guessing game?

research Prey Model Raw
When the allergies stop, the ear infections stop.
Ecko had wicked allergies, I was treating ear infections every other week. I researched PMR and he's been on it for 6 months. Now I only deal with occasional contact allergies, and seasonal ear infections. He also has a full healthy coat now too. Happy and healthy.
I hope you get your pups allergies under control. Both of you will be so much happier when you do.

put her on a raw diet, we have a great raw diet section on this forum or buy her grain free food. Keep her on that food for a month with NO treats or only grain free treats. It will take a few weeks for her system to flush out and reset so don't give up if it doesn't help in a week. Give it a month at least.

Quick Start | Prey Model Raw

I followed this very slowly. What it doesn't mention is you should pull the skin off of the chicken backs to start and after things are solid for a week start adding in the skin a little at a time and then move on to the next step. Every dog transitions differently, so take it slow and keep an eye on things.
Ecko took 4 months to complete the transition.

No I would not feed ground turkey. The bones are good for cleaning the teeth and there is potential for more bacteria in ground meat than when its left alone on the bone. But you do not want to feed primarily any one protein. You need to switch it up. And never ever cooked bones. Only raw bones can be fed
