Food Recommendation for Dog with Allergies?

My 1.5 male GSD has food allergies to chicken and beef. He was on Fromm Gold Adult and now I need to switch him to a different brand of food. Any recommendations?

Our vet suggested a lamb based diet. He was originally on Blue Buffalo (he loved that) then I switched him to the Fromm (he'll eat it but isn't too excited about it). I brought him to a pet food store yesterday and he seems to be really drawn to Taste of the Wild. I bought the Sierra Mountain Lamb and he for the first time in a long time he gets excited about food. But I just noticed it says the ingredients contains "egg products"; with his allergies with chicken should I continue with this food?

BTW his allergic reaction to the chicken and beef caused severe ear infections.

Please help. Thanks!

Monica Segal is a nutritionist in Canada. I used to worry about eggs to but I read one of her blogs that said eggs have different enzymes than meat so a poultry allergy doesn't necessarily translate to an egg allergy. That has held true for my dog.
