    Thank you!!!! I’m looking now. we may take him to Cornell. He’s had the skin issue for a few years. What kind of environmental issues? How would a vet figure that out?

    We have a 4.5 year old English Creme Golden diagnosed with IBD. He’s been on prednisone and now an antibiotic. His chronic skin condition has worsened and now he’s losing some hair by his nose. The vet recommends hydrolyzed dog food and no scraps (which he’s been on for months), but he’s still not himself. He is famished all the time, even at the lower dose of pred. At his age, I would expect him to be a lot more energetic. He doesn’t want to do anything but lay around, and he inhales his food and is overweight. Any suggestions to help? I need to get him off the prednisone as soon as possible. He’s been on it for six months now. I see lots of comments on food (Taste of the Wild), but seems people are having problems here in the US. Wonder why Australia is not.

    Any suggestions or input? Thank you!
