Joys of an allergic dog...
For him, or me. Poor Cisco, he is allergic and the vet believes it to be a food allergy. So he was taken off his food and put on Science Diet Z/D. The largest bag I could get, was 97.00. Yep, you read that right, and it didn't even last a month. Yikes! Fast forward 16 weeks or so, and I called the vet to see if we could maybe try something else now. So a trip to a natural dog food store, [thankfully we have one very close] gave me an education, for sure. I selected a food and went back to the vet so he could read the label. NOPE...it contained duck...blah, blah. So we agreed on trying sweet potato and bison.
What we don't do for our babies, huh?
I am crossing my fingers and toes, because if he breaks out with ear infections within a week or so, back to the other food for him. This food will still be expensive, but about half as much as the Z/D.
