We purchased 2 toy poodles in Feb this year. when we got them from the breeder they we eating fresh chicken and mince only. we changed them to a barf diet with chicken necks etc 3 times a week. this was fine until about 9 weeks ago when they started to get really itchy. after ruling out fleas we took them to the vet and he said that the prob have a food allergy, he suggested that we use royal canin skin assist biscuits, and that they have fish and potato. they have been on this diet for 8 weeks now and i have just had to stop the biscuits as these we making them itchy still (they have animal protein in them). We have been introducing other food into there diet to see if we can narrow down what is is they have an allergy to but have come up with a huge list..
So far both of them cant have any:
cheese (their training treat)
Is it normal for 2 dogs to both have an allergy to the same things? The are sisters but is this weird?
Is it healthy for them to be only eating fish and potatoes?
Any other suggestions for food that they could eat? As i am sure that they aren't getting there nutritional needs from just these 2 foods?
Can anyone suggest a vet that specialises in nutrition is Brisbane?
