I NEED HELP! My sweet boy was identified with allergies a few years ago. We found a food and he was doing well. Now he is breaking out and has to be on Apoquel. He has been on it for several months. Wanting to get him off it, I did a fur and saliva test for sensitivities. Between the two lists, I cannot find food. I even tried to make food and it was a no-go. Perhaps someone here knows of a food. Here is his list:
Grains inc; rices(wht & br), corn, barley, quinoa,rye, wheat, millet,
Fish Oil, Fish Meal, Salmon and Trout
Dairy except Goat and Sheep milk
and a few other spices
Your help and suggestions are welcome!!!!!aimeeParticipant
Hair and saliva tests are completely unreliable so don’t bother basing a diet off of them. I sent in IV solution as “saliva” and cotton from the swab in the kit as “hair” to Glacier Peaks and my “dog” was reported to have numerous sensitivities. A couple vet dermatologists did testing with Immune IQ and found the tests unreliable.
That said if you want to look further into adverse food reactions as the cause of your dog’s problems talk to your vet about doing a proper elimination diet using a vet diet made for this purpose or a home made diet. You can find more information here. http://www.veterinarypartner(dot)com/Content.plx?P=A&S=0&C=0&A=2499
