|I hope this doesn't soundxd over the top to you- but-
I feed my dogs Nature's Variety Kibble (they love the venison) , Nature's variety raw meat diet and they also get a little spoonful of Chicken soup for the dog's soul canned every day. Now, the food might seem pricey but #1- they are little dogs and it lasts a long time #2 feeding good food and having a healthy dog cuts back on the vet bills. 3# Nebraska is one of the worst places in the country for allergies- both human and dog.
My oldest dog, Blossom(recently deceased, age 13) had TERRIBLE allergies. She was allergic to everything. I fed her iVet food, which helped, she was on shots, steroids, and I had to bathe her and put lotion on her 3X's a week. She was a good dog though. Had I known about Nature's Variety I would have switched her to it.
I think there are a lot of preventative measures you can take before the allergies get out of hand, and diet is definitely one of them. Boo and Atticus love this food-Here is the website if you are interested. http://www.naturesvariety.com/
