ohhh no-I don't want to compromise his immune system or damage his organs! Because of the elimination diets not resolving his allergies the vet did not recommend allergy testing because she said his allergies are most likely environmental and not avoidable.

I have not tried the raw diet. Not sure how to even do that and we are on a tight budget. I mean would he need lots of vegetables as well to balance his diet, and how much meat would I give him per meal? I'd have no idea how to feed him that way and he is a big boy weighs well over 100 lbs and the steroids make him constantly hungry like a raving woof and thats no exaggeration. He has been trying to eat everything even my daughters crayons.

*And the steroid he is on is Prednisone.
