Yep, he is that picky! He always kinda has been. Not so much when he was younger, but now that he's older, he is. He loves the dry kibble and eats every last bite! I always say, I've never seen such a picky raw fed dog! He loves all the stuff he cant have!

As of right now, no, the others are not eating his raw. I will see what all I have and let you know. I would love to see it go to someone who will eat it.

Nope, he can't have eggs although he loves them. They make his ears red and itchy frown
He's never had tofu before! Not sure about beans...

I will do some research on Monica Segal. I know LauraHolder is using her diet with Oscar, so I have been reading through her thread. I will look at her books too.

I missed this before, but it's a supplement that is supposed to help with allergies and also skin, as well as joints. Might be worth a try?

Now off to read your long post!

Thinking about the diet...maybe with a cooked diet, he won't be so picky and might tolerate more proteins?

I am with Ruth, to me, picky often (usually?) means something isn't right or optimal.

You might want to start a new "diet thread", for more input, though here is fine too.

Max is King of Food Intolerance, and I'm fortunate that he tolerates beef nowadays. For awhile, it was lamb only, and that's pretty pricey. He absolutely can't have chicken, turkey, or pork.

Just wanted to update on Mason

(knock on wood, hopefully I'm not jinxing it!)


I am pleased to say that Mason is doing very well! smile

He is eating Grain Free California Natural Kangaroo & Lentils. He is doing fantastic on it and he eats every meal now which is huge for Mason! happyboogie I no longer have to entice him to eat and he looks forward to eating.
I do notice a difference though, with him being off raw as far as the "dog odor" goes!

His skin has cleared up and is no longer dry, flaky & itchy. He no longer has any sore/red/itchy/hairless hotspot like patches, not even under his front legs/arms!

The edges of his ears are doing great and looking good too. They are healing, the hair is growing back.

His coat is starting to fill back in. His saddle was almost gray in color before, as he was itching it so much and pulling the hair out. That now is starting to fill back in black and is getting darker, like it was over the summer!

Anyways, I couldn't be more pleased with how he is currently doing and I hope it continues this way.
When we went out and about last Saturday, a guy that had seen him two weeks ago commented on how much better he looks, how his coat is filling in and that he is starting to look like a German Shepherd again! wub

Forgot to add, that he is no longer on the ONP stuff. It wasn't agreeing with him, think maybe it was one of the ingredients.
He is back on fish oil, vit e, & vit. c, finally too, and doing well! smile

Okay, so now we know he really has some major food issues. The abx helped with skin issues that maybe were from the allergies. But, the food...so glad that he is doing so well. Let's hope it keeps working!

I'm so glad to hear that Mason is doing so well. What a huge relief for both of you!

And, we will be happy to buy the ONP stuff off of you. It has worked wonders for Kailor.
