I have a 3 year old GSD with skin allergies and colitis. Would a diet change help?
Hi, my name is Jennifer. I have a 3 year old German Shep. Her name is Tagg. Over the last 2 years she had developed skin allergies & most recently colitis. Her skin allergies flare up from August to November. She has been on Prednisone, but she is sensitive to it so it make her incontinent to boot. The vets have told me to get her tested. I just don't know if that will give us the real picture. And as I said, Since January she's had colitis. It seems to have gone away since I changed her food. I weened her onto the Eukanuba German Shep specific dry food. I just would like to have some true guidance with this, instead of huge vet bills & her not being relieved or even comfortable. I believe something natural or supplements of some sort could help her. I just don't know where to start.
Thank you in advance for you time & patience.
I believe that your dog would greatly benefit from a fresh, species appropriate diet. Read the article on feeding a raw diet. It’s a work in progress but there is a lot of good information there.
I do believe the best thing you could do for your dog is to start with a raw diet.
