He was born in the local Humane Society when his mother was seized from a dog fighting house. He was from a litter of 6. 3 of which died from Parvo before even gett...

Re: Vet conundrum- suggestions

Have you been giving him chicken the whole time? Half the foods you mention have chicken or eggs in them, plus he was given raw chicken. Organic or not, if you are sensistive to chicken you are sensitive to chicken. And most vets agree that the testing for food allergens is very inaccurate. I would...

Yes, it's only with Ceph, and no vet will believe this. He was on Doxy once, but he was on Ceph at the same time too. Yes, we did food elimination with food, and we also did the series with shots- where they shave the side of the dog and do injections. Who did the injections? The current vet or a d...
