Food Allergies

Post by Susan Lively Klu » Wed, 13 Dec 1995 04:00:00

Hello everyone.  Just got the *** test results from the lab.
Our dog is 18 months old and has been having skin problems, loss
of hair and itchiness since he was 9 months old.  His "breed" is
suspected to be GSD X Great Pyranees X (golden retriever?) we got
him at a humane society, they didn't know much.

Anyway the results indicate that he is allergic to all the grasses
they tested, dandelion,***lebur, honeysuckle, mulberry.
Sheep wool (bye bye Fuzzy Bear :( ) He also had a reaction to black fly.

The worst by far is the food allergies.  Rice, Turkey, Egg, Codfish,
and to a lesser degree corn, beef, milk, pork, and lamb.  He had
no reaction to wheat, soybean, or chicken.

The recommended diets from the lab are:
Neura Beef or Chicken mixed 50/50 with potatoes
                (comes in a can only).  OR
Innovative Veterinary Diets
        Lamb & Potato               Can
        Venison & Potato    Can
        Rabbit & Potato             Can
        Duck & Potato               Can

Does anyone know of any dry foods on the market that do not
contain Rice or any of the other foods Murphy is allergic to?
I figured out the cost of the cans of Neura to be $60.00 a month if
I mix with potatoes and carrots (Murphy weighs in at a lean 80lbs).
I'll continue to buy the Neura if that is all there is, but I really
liked feeding the dry food.  
Thanks for any help.
