Annabelle has been increasingly scratching for the last year plus. I talked with our vet and he said chewing on the paws and reoccurring ear problems are generally food allergies. He suggested a strict fish/potato diet for two weeks to see if things change. We found Blue brand salmon/potato at PetSmart.
It worked but she started to scratch again by the third month. She also gained 3lbs! Either a new allergy developed with the salmon/potato or something else flared up.
The vet then told us to change her food back to work on her weight and gave her prednisone. It worked too until the dosage ran out and now she is overweight AND scratching herself like crazy.
Are there any fish/potato products out there that aren't so fattening or should we try something else? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. We LOVE her and hate to see her so miserable.
