Hello. My name is Kathy. My dog's name is Rikky Ray. He has been suffering with skin issues his whole life! He is 7 years old now. He is allergic to everything it seems and I can't get his skin issues under control. He has a whole body rash right now. Cronic yeast in his ears and feet. His feet and ears are finally starting to get better but no relief yet anywhere else. Is there anything else I can do? I have taken him off dog food because he is allergic to corn and soy. I make his food with boiled hamburger, chicken, turkey or venison. I use garlic, carrots, green been, peas and sweet potatoes (not all at once on veggies, 2 at a time). I am so at a loss here. I have spent literally thousands of dollars on his vet bills. Now I am on a fixed income and don't know what else to do for my baby boy. He is a beagle basset mix. His mamma is a basset and his daddy is a beagle. Both of them have no issues with their skin. What can I do?????

Dear Kathy,

Sometimes it helps to split the dose and give half with breakfast and half with supper. It is good you are home preparing the food, but I would not use chicken while he is having skin problems. Chicken is considered to be warming according to Chinese food therapy. You should also add some calcium to balance the protein. I also use digestive enzymes, Canine probiotics, and Omega 3,6,9 to help the gut to heal. Healing the gut is imperative for getting the allergies under control. It will take some time to heal a lifetime of allergies.

Please keep us updated.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
