Skin Allergies

My 10 yr old dutchess has allergies. Getting worse with age. I am changing her diet now to grain free Rachael ray. Bit if I leave a collar on her, hair falls out, she gets flakes/scales all over, loses her hair and it will grow back. She itches constantly. Any advice. Vets are extremely expensive. I want to try to eliminate before I spend the 1,000s on blood work, skinscraping, etc. And any suggestions on what otc itch relief is good?

Changing the diet is always the first step. Fish as the protein and grain free will be a good start. Do the transition slowly. Give it a month. Add fish oil and coconut oil as well.

If you don't see some improvement after a month of being on the new food then use the search function and check out some of the other posts I've responded on. I've been dealing with it for almost a decade at this point and have posted some of the things I've tried as others have asked.

PS don't forget to transition the food slowly so your dog doesn't get cannon butt.

Thank you. I have already seen a drastic improvement. I have been feeding her 2 meals a day measured out and serve her cooked salmon and grain free organic salmon kibble. I stopped using all the harsh chemicals the vet gave us and started using green tea oil (it helps with flaking, itch and fungus and you can find it at any grocherie store in the hair department for people with course hair). It has cocunut oil, sunflower and green tea oils in it. She lost all the hair on her right ear. it was covered in large flakes, placed, etc. I massaged the oil in all over her body 3 days ago and kept an eye out for any bad reactions, but to my suprise it completely helped her (knock on wood).
I also found a site that allows me to save some money by mailing out her hair and testing her for 300 of most common allergies for 140.00. I'm just praying it will not come back that she has allergies to half or something crazier.

It has been hard not feeding her while I cook dinner. I have been youtubing making your own dog food and did add just the crown of fresh broccoli in her salmon and she loved it.

Newbie here. Is it hard to differentiate between skin allergy caused by tick/flea and food allergy?

Treat for fleas, if it goes away then it was fleas. If it doesn't, try changing diet to grain and chicken free. If it goes away then it was food. If it doesn't go away then it's environmental. At that point you work on an immune system building plan of supplements.
