When Tippy was one, I had her tested for allergies after she had several ear infections. The test showed that she was allergic to chicken, turkey, wheat, eggs and kelp. The environmental allergy list is very extensive-orchard, redtop, timothy grasses, numerous weeds, aspen, maple and oak trees, numerous fungi, mixed feathers, cotton and malassezia.
I put Tippy on a raw food diet from Healthy Paws of Beef/Organ meats, fruit, veggies and bones. Her vet at the time recommended a course of allergy shots which I was not in favor of. So we went to see a holistic vet in town. Tippy went through several different remedies over the next two years and I changed the meat in her diet to lamb. Nothing worked until we found Robert McDowell's Herbal Treatments. Tippy was started on Robert McDowell's Herbal Canine Skin Allergy-Irritation Acute and Skin Problems Blood Cleanser in October. In November Tippy developed severe ear infections and the Blood Cleanser was changed to a Blood Poisoning Treatment. By February 2008 she had made huge progress and was only scratching a little bit. It was smooth sailing from then on.
Tippy is now a beautiful 5 year old golden retriever who has been on Robert McDowell's remedies since October 2007. We get many compliments on how her fur looks. Nobody believes that she is a dog with allergies.
