    Cesar has always had very mild skin allergies i figured becuase the other owner had him on diamond puppy kibble. of coarse i got him off from that and onto a more natural diet of chicken,turkey,venasin,salmon and raw veggies (i know its unnessecarry but he enjoys them)
    it took me the coarse of about a month to remove the kibble from his diet he would do well untill i would remove the last bit then get diareha so i figured no harm in him having a half cup of kibble but he still suffers from mild allergies (red patches of skin and the occassional red bumps) so i figured i would get him on a skin and coat supplement. but everyone i try he vomits after taking it. i tried lipiderm liquid,grizzley salmon oil,vitacaps,fish oil caps even cod liver oil but after eating it he vomits he doestn vomit anything else up thought maybe it was a fish allergy but he eats salmon just fine hes also had bass just fine?
    should i not bother with the supplements since tis such a mild allergy?

    From what I've read from dogfoodchat, if you feed a bunch of fish and grass-fed beef, you shouldn't need to supplement... If it's mild, then maybe some benedryl can help? Or hydroxizine? I know those aren't supplements... But if you find a miracle supplement, let me know! I want it!

    Ya completely depends on the amount of free range or grass fed meats you're feeding.

    You can try coconut oil if you haven't yet. i've heard from a few people that it's helped clear a few little bumps and stuff up by just rubbing through their coat and on their skin daily.
