my hav had horrible 'pustules' (pus filled sores, crusted over) all over her ears, head and neck I took her to the vet and after doing scrappings to make sure she didn't have mange or parasites they drew blood and tested for allergies of all kinds. Results came back a week later and turns out she IS allergic to a LOT of foods, chicken, turkey, duck, carrots, apples, oatmeal, soy, berries, potatoes, etc, etc ... I decided to home cook for her as opposed to buying a 'high quality' kibble or even canned, because honestly, even the high quality ones are really, really hard to find one she can have and in the long run it is WAY cheaper to home cook for her. I had a consult with Sabine and Tillie is on a simple diet that I make every week along with the vitamins and supplements Sabine put her on to make sure her diet is complete. It isn't for everyone, BUT it is for us! Tillie is healthier and I feel so good knowing I am doing what is best for her!
If you really think it is a food allergy try to get her tested. otherwise it can be a long, frustrating process full of unknowns trying to figure out WHAT they are allergic to! in the meantime I highly recomend checking out Sabine's website!!
