I thought my 1/2 hav might have food allergies too, and I asked the vet that very question, wouldn't he itch all over? she said no, not necessarily.
anyway I was almost positive, in all my wisdom that my little guy had food allergies b/c of his general itchiness. nope he doesn't.
itchiness could be lots of things. dry skin, just itchy...unless there is a rash of some sort on the dog's skin, they won't scrape it and test it to see if it's an allergy or whatever.
rule out the easy stuff like shampoo, or flea meds... my big dog has really sensitive skin, she's always scratching up to a week after I put frontline on her.
