"The allergy issue can make you bonkers. All of Karens suggestions are terrific and will most certainly help. I would just like to add that our boy also suffers and I recently started him on the Cytopoint shot (given by vet). He is on shot #2. I can…"

"It's a deal. The easiest way to think of it is that you want the Omega 6 number to be less than 5 times the Omega 3 number."

"Sort of, but it makes my brain tired. I can divide by 5 and can do greater than or less than, so I could do it but  I'll just continue to let you tell me the best foods. :-}"

"Another easy way to do it is to look at the Omega 6 number and divide it by 5. You want the Omega 3 number to be more than that. So if the Omega 6 number is 2.5, the Omega 3 content should be more than 0.5.  Does that make sense? "

"To do the actual math, you'd have to divide the Omega 6 number by the Omega 3 number, which can get pretty complicated, because the numbers are usually decimals, lol. But it's pretty easy to just eyeball it and guesstimate. Okay, so…"

"Karen, I am mathematically  dumb and can't figure out the Omega 6:3 ratio and looking for one that is lower than 5:1.    So, when looking for the ratio, you want the number difference to be 4 or less?  Geez! I hate…"

"Hopefully the dermatologist gave you some recommendations for fatty acid supplements, a better antihistamine, and possibly shampoo. If not, here's some info from JD's dermatologist:  Give Omega 3 fatty acid supplements. You want the…"

Now what???

All, I just came from the dermatologist. My boy tested negative for everything on the Intradermal environmental allergy test. My vet wants to start the food prescription hypoallergenic diet. He is suggesting Royal Canin Rabbit (adult PR). Is that my only option?? Any advice or guidance would be helpful and appreciated. I would consider all options, kibbles, cooking for my dog or going raw. I currently feed Orijen Original and Regional Red. He wasn't fond of the 6 fish. For treats he gets…See More

"Tiffani, I too am a first time doodle owner and the same thing happened to me. For about a month when he was 6 month old nothing I did seemed to help. I fed a chicken and rice diet. I would also mix 1 tablespoon of pumpkin in also, (not pie filling)…"

Karen & Jackdoodle replied to Tammy Leiter's discussion Vet recommended Glucosamine
"It seems like a high dosage to me, too, given your dog's size, age and health. JD is 12.5 years old, weighs approx. 70 lbs, and does have osteoarthritis as well as a herniated lumbar disc. His orthopedic specialist recommended Cosequin DS.…"
