    Wow, he lost alot of weight. Why do you say he has a sensitive stomach? Do you give him probiotics & digestive enzymes? That might really help him. Was there a food he did okay on? I think many allergies are environmental. Maybe 10% turns out to be food related. I would put him back on the food that you think he did best on. He can have a soft boiled egg pretty frequently. He can also have a serving of cooked liver pretty frequently. It is good for their immune system. Unsalted sardines in water are good too. If you think he is allergic to something he is eating you can buy a limited ingredient food with rabbit or something that he has never had before and give it to him for about 3 months and see if he improves at all. But honestly it could all be environmental.

    He had some more tests so far
    Blood tests are all OK no infection inside
    Skin tests done again and vet has seen an dermatitis bacterial inflammation and told me this is not related with food another vet told that it is 100% food allergy and adviced Advance Atopic Care dog food and told me that to if I start him on a raw diet my dog will suffer serious and fatal problems
    I am stucked and really do not know what to do !!!
    First vet treatment is antibiotics Baytril and an antibiotic cream with probiotics and a shampoo treatment including chlorexidine and adviced raw diet
    Second vet advices kibble Advance Atopic Care

    Baytril saved Tonka's life. I tried a raw diet when Tonka was very ill and combined with antibiotics it did not go very well at all. She could have died. Personally, I would just work on the skin and giving optimal nutrition. Was there a food that he did best on? Can you add home cooked or a good quality canned to the kibble? Also, can you post the ingredients label to the kibble that they are recommending? I'm sorry your pup is suffering with this. I know how stressful it is.

    I think with a problem this severe, it often is not food-related. The breed is prone to skin/immune problems and they can be very difficult to deal with. Sometimes these things never really go away and can only be managed. And sometimes can't even be managed successfuly. Have you seen a canine dermatology specialist?

    Dear friends

    Thank you for your replies
    I am very sad about the vets here in my country because they are very fix minded and generally not paying too much attention to neccesary blood tests etc. For them it is very easy just to say it is eczema change your kibble :) however due to some searches on internet (THANKS GOD I HAVE A LITTLE ENGLISH ) I see these allergic reactions should be deeply investigated
    I am now on a search for leaky gut syndrome in canines
    I visited 4 vets here and all of them came with a different scenarios :)
    Kibbles should I trust them oh no I do not know nothing I realise these things are really really very complicated about nutrition and here vets did not have even an dermatology lessons taken in school deeply
    A vet can have no knowledge about a proper and a balanced nutrition they only do well on kibbles haha :))

    Maybe antibiotic treatment will be a solution but what will happen if he has a syndrome like leaky gut or something different started

    Will do some more tests like IgG IgA IgM and etc after that will see

    Searching right now cooked balanced diet just to have an opinion and after when I am sure if this is like a seasonal allergy or just a bacterial skin infection and eliminate other important GI and bowel disease candidates will better search for raw diet
    For raw diet I am not sure... Firstly I am not sure if I can do it in my country because I am afraid of some meat troubles in the past sold for people !!! Source of meat and the animal health checks not properly done I guess ...

    Thanks for your interest and replies
    Will write each step here soon
