Jax08 The person I buy from is about 5 miles from me. He said about 50% of his honey goes to ppl with allergies (1T per day for people) and some have been able to come off of steroids. The only downside to honey is that it obviously affects your sugar levels, and that of the dogs, so if you are diabetic you'll need to monitor.

I took Jax off the honey after her itching stopped to see what would happen and within days she was scratching again so I'm sure it is the honey that helped.

This will be perfect, the location is less than 10 miles from my house. It's actually a produce farm I frequent often anyway. I didn't know they had hives on the back of their property. Heck, I might start putting a little in my yogurt too. Glad to hear you saw results that fast. I will let you know.

Aw don't take Elaine's advice as condescending. IMO she's always looking out for the best, (but shhh don't tell her she can come off as brazen sometimes ). She means well.

<3 Elaine

I hope your pup feels better. Just wanted to say that and chin up. You've got some pretty good advice form Jax08 too c: Keep us posted on how your pup does!

Looks like you received some excellent advice.

I re-read that reply 3 times and I don't get the condescending message out of it either. She was just trying to help.

Here you are feeding three different proteins and chances are he's had two of them before and could be allergic to them already.

Elaine wasn't being condescending...she was explaining how to do it and why you need to do it that way. My Boxer is fine with all grains but can't have chicken. Proteins, grains...you have to limit it to one at a time as Elaine explained above. RAW doesn't have anything to do with it. You could put him on a LID kibble and still accomplish the same thing.

Wow. You seem to know it all when you say nonsense like this. Allergies can be to any protein your dog has eaten, not just grains. So glad you know it all and I hope you get the help you are looking for because you aren't getting any more from me. Good luck.

Gilly1331 We switched to raw bc of allergies and have never looked back. Our male couldnt handle any of the kibbles we had tried, would vommit and have liquid poops of all different colors. Vet checked all possibilities and he was healthy other than not tolerating any of the kibbles we tried..it progressed to dry scaley allegator type skin starting in his ears and paws and belly. We switched to raw and everything went away. However we did find out he has a chicken allergy and now we don't feed any raw chicken parts but we feed all other raw proteins.

Start your pup out on one protein usually chicken or some type of poultry and feed only this protein for 6 weeks or so. You can feed different body parts of the same protein..legs, backs, necks, livers, hearts etc. Then add in a 2nd protein and so on. After about 4-6 months you should see some typ of difference if there was an allergy to the kibble you were feeding.

Good luck.
