Ok I just left. They gave her Hexachlor-K wipes since it was all I could afford and they want me to wipe her feet 2-3 times a day and continue the benedryl. They want her to try a hypoallergenic diet so we can see if it is for sure food related. Said to stay on a hypoallergenic diet for 12 weeks. If she still has feet problems then they want to do an allergy test then.

I would definitely do the hypoallergenic diet and go from there. Glad you got her in to the vet.

If she did fine on the surf and turf why not just go back to that? Food allergies are pretty common and most are able to be ruled out without testing or 'prescription' diets.

I could go back to surf and turf if i absolutely have to. The main reason I switched her off surf and turf is because it made her breath stink something terrible.

I'm looking through the food we sell at my work to see what we have that is a good limited ingredients food. I told the vet I was uncomfortable putting her on royal canin or hills

Do you guys carry California Natural? Their food is pretty limited in the ingredients and they also have grain free. Last I checked it was pretty afforadable also.

Earthborn Holistic grain free is really good and not as expensive. I order it thru www.mrchewy.com They have great prices and the food comes fast.
