I hope someone can help me.  My boxer has had a skin problem for a while now he has been itching and a little red in the feet and ears.  I switched his food to an "allergy" food duck and potatoes and now he is TERRIBLE.  I don't know if it is the food or something else.  His feet, ears, belly are red, his eyes are swollen and on his belly by his thing there are red round circles that look like they are raw.  The vet is not open today.  He seems to be okay I have given him benadryl twice so far and he seems to be okay...  has this ever happened to anyone else before?

I would lean more towarda an allergy of an ingredient on the food.

Maybe a lamb and rice food would work a little better since the protien source is only from 1 ingredient and lamb tends to be a little more gentle on a dogs system.

Sounds like it may be a grain allergy. I'd bet money that both your new food and old food contained grains. It is quite possible that he's reacting to the grains.

There are many grain free kibbles out there that may be an option for you. A few of them are:

Innova EVO
Innova EVO Red Meat
Solid Gold Barking at the Moon
Nature's Variety RAW Instinct

Good luck! Sorry to hear that your boy is so itchy!
