You might want to think about consulting Mordy about Ruckus. I had her make up a diet plan for Kai and I'm very happy with the result. I didn't feel comfortable doing it myself, because of his IBD. I have peace of mind because I know that he's on a balanced diet.
If you are interested, here is her website.

no i am not stuck on going back to kibble, i am just extremly confused right now.
pork made him sick, he is allergic to chicken, i hope to god he isnt allergic to beef. that leaves me nothing but fish and whatever i can get a hunter to bring me.
I know you don't have internet now, but I'll comment anyway.

Many dogs are allergic to wheat. I don't see any point in giving wheat germ and wheat bran. Also the brewers yeast. These would be the 1st things I'd change. You didn't mention that in your original post about what you were feeding. Cut out the supplements (except for the vits and fish oil), go back to meat only, and monitor for a few weeks.

Hope you get a good diet sorted out soon. Is the allergy to chicken or all white meat? i would be tempted to try turkey meat.
