She looked much better today lets hope she stays that way!
If you are already feeding grain free I would look at other things you give her. Like treats can have hidden grains in them. Is there a thread about this I can look at?Lisa for a food allergy do you have to change the brand of food or is switching the formula sufficient enough to determine if it was a food allergy or not. For instance can I just switch from TOTW Sierra Mountain formula to the Pacific stream formula or do I need to try a different brand altogether?
no sorry I didn't start a thread on it because the vet told us it was allergies two weeks ago and to start with changing food because it's the easiest to diagnose. So we stopped all treats and changed formulas of TOTW, but we are still having the itching problem and minor hives. So I just wanted to make sure that changing the formula was a sufficient change to diagnose the food allergy. We'll try what you wrote about seasonal allergies now though. thank you.If you are already feeding grain free I would look at other things you give her. Like treats can have hidden grains in them.

I think you had a thread about this right? I think you did and we talked about it there if not start one and we will help out.Hi All!
I am looking for some feedback about allergy. I have a 1 1/2 year old pit-bull that developed severe allergy when she was about 5 months. I have been dealing with this for about a year now and still looking for solutions. She itches all over her body and has hives all over her body too when she gets pretty bad. Her hair has become thin and dry. After taking her to several vets I decided to do the blood test to find out what she was really allergic to. It turns out she is allergic to 19 different allergens. I started her on immunotherapy and hope to see a change in the coming months. I would like to know if anyone has try immunotherapy and if they have had any success? I am exhausted to say the least and would like to receive some encouragement that there would be some light at the end of the tunnel. She is the life of the house and I love her deeply and would do anything to make her better. Any suggestions are highly appreciated. Thanks!
Yes you are right, Mange will normally start out around the eyes, ears, and muzzle. It also will start with hairloss vs a rash.I was wondering about disinguishing allergies from mange. If the areas of the rash are on elbows and chest/tummy is it allergic reaction and not mange? Because I was under the impression mange started around the ears, eyes, and snout? Thank you.
