Skin/allergy issues

Hello I have a red Pitbull that just turned a year old in dec. we have been having skin issues with him since he was 3 mo old. I'm not sure what to do... The vet only prescribes steroids and antibiotics which help temporarily... We have had him allergy tested and now cook for him instead of feeding him bagged food. He also takes probiotics. Has anyone ever seen this before and what am I doing wrong ? Please help

I think it's time you seek out a dermatologist vet. There's only so much your regular vet can do and it seems like they're not helping much.

What are you feeding your dog now? What did the allergy test reveal?

We did take the pet immune at home allergy test and it said he was allergic to practically every basic ingredient in dog food. Chicken,fish,beef,yogurt...etc so i cook for him weekly. lamb, yellow, squash, broccoli, eggs, blueberries, duck fat, coconut oil, lentils and brown rice. the vet recommended a dermatologist local to us that does consultations for 200.00$ and the actual 50 panel test is 1000.00$ im guessing this is a route we will have to take ... i was just hoping this was something that someone recognized and there was a more simple less costly fix.

My friend has a pup that is allergic to almost everything. Plastic and Metal and aluminium (she had to get a steel crate made and he has ceramic bowls) human and cat dander. How bad that would suck if your dog was allergic to you! I hate the antibiotic/steroid cycle. Do they ever clear up even for a little while? What do you use for maintenance after the antibiotics and steroids? So sorry you and your pup are going through this. You can shop around for cheaper prices its around $600 at my place, I was thankfully able to figure out myself what worked for my boy. When its as excessive as your pup I think you may have to do it if you cant figure out what it could be.

I'm not experienced with allergies so hopefully some others will have some ideas. My girl started showing signs of allergies when she was young, but luckily that was fixed by switching to a grain free food without chicken. Maybe a proper raw diet would help? There is plenty of info out there for you to research if you want to give a raw diet a try, I am not sure if that will help or not though. Could he have allergies to the grass? Or maybe the laundry soap you use? Unfortunately there are multiple things it could be.

I second giving the raw diet a try. So even without feeding the allergens identified by the test she is looking like this?

Have you considered an environmental allergy? Or a reaction to a cleaning product? Do you use and soaps/detergents/cleaning products that she may be coming into contact with?

Yikes that looks so irritating. Poor pup, but I know you are doing your best to help. I have had good luck using the Garden if Life Raw Immune probiotics. Have you thought bravo it getting one of those allergy panels done by a dermatologist? They poke holes in the skin and they are really accurate.
Does Benadryl work? I'd give that over all the steroids and antibiotics
