Maximus, my longhaired doxie, has been itchy the whole 6 months we've had him. It kinda died down when I started cooking for them, but he's started again. I was thinking of doing just 2 or 3 ingredients in the next batch of food I make him, and slowly adding things to see if its something in his diet that he's allergic to. I was wondering what the least allergenic things I could give him? I was thinking of doing turkey and oatmeal. Also, how long would I need to give him the simplified diet before I started adding things?
