Been a long time since I have been here. We have a 6 year old English Mastiff. She's had allergy issues since she was probably 2. The second she eats any sort of chicken or wheat her ears puff up like balloons and her faces itches. The doc usually gives her steroids for that. We have tried very hard to avoid giving her anything with grain/poultry. The past year though I think it's gotten worse. Her ears don't puff up too often but her face itches so bad she will rub her eyebrow off. If you put your hand on her face she smashes into it and grinds. When she greets me she grinds her head into me and it makes her back leg kick. We feed her Earthborn coastal catch. Treats.. usually whatever we find that is grain free/poultry free. We also give her fruit and fresh veggies often. Apples, oranges, green peppers, lettuce, etc. She loves everything. Her grandparents watch her during the day and usually give her peanut butter in the morning, some fruit around lunch and half a banana per day. She takes 6 benedryl in the morning and 6 at night. With meals. Per vet orders. Her weight is healthy according to the vet at about 140lbs. She basically only goes outside for potty breaks, and walks in good weather. I've heard that Zignature is a good food for dogs with allergies, but comparing the ingredients to what we give her now - I'm not sure there is that big of a difference. I'm curious what makes it better, if anything? I'm also open to other suggestions because the vet wants to put her on Apoquel. To me, that seems like a huge expense for something that may do her more harm than good.
