I want to do an elimination diet trial with my 5 year old miniature goldendoodle.
She has skin allergies, terrible hotspots all over her body.
She’s been eating Acana Singles, Pork formula for the past few years, and her skin has done best on this food. The whole DCM issue has scared me off Acana, and my vet recommended a switch as well.
Purina Pro Plan Sensitive Skin & Stomach, Lamb & Oatmeal = her skin exploded
Royal Canin, Hydrolyzed Protein, purchased from the vet = her skin exploded
Back to Acana for two weeks = skin improved 100%
Canadian Naturals, Pork & Squash = her skin exploded
I’m at my wits end, my girl is suffering. I’d like to try an elimination diet to find out what the culprit(s) is/are but don’t want to use kibble. I want to use home cooked food for her, not raw.
She’s had allergy testing (I know they are not reliable) blood thru the vet & hair & saliva thru Glacier Peaks. They were some similarities (few).
I’d appreciate some steps to start with if anyone has successfully done the same.
