Dog has food allergies?
My boerboel suffers from food allergies and we have been prescribed an only protein diet (ostrich) for him - can I give tin food which contains real meat or do I have to stick to the food which the vet prescribed.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Regards
Rufus

Dear Rufus

If you are busy with anelimination diet even supplements, sauces and even chews should be eliminated to make sure that you are dealing with a food allergy. Straight forward food allergies are not common at all.
