Through observation and trial and error, I discovered she was allergic to corn. I also discovered that she is sensative to large amounts of chicken, as chickens eat corn.
I've had her on Timberwolf for over a year and her coat literally stops traffic. No more rashes, staph infections or hair loss. Her fur has filled in nicely and started to thicken a little bit.
For months, I kept a food journal and logged everything. No one but me was to feed her unless I handed them the food/treat. I also logged what laundry detergent we used and what we did so that if a flare up occurred, I could look at what we did previously.

It started out she was only vomitting a tblsp of food or a few, then went to more vomitting than that. The vet suggest pepcid right after she eats and then half an hour later give her the ceph.

We don't even know if it's necessarily a bacteria infection. It's not bad, but the spots are sill there. The hair is growing back, but wouldn't you think that if it was bacterial that it would've cleared up by now since we're on day 13 of the antibiotic (she only needs it for one more day)?
She mentioned ringworm, but basically ruled it out because she said that we would've gotten it by now
RAW dieting will be very beneficial to us with his allergies, BUT, he also has a sensitive system, and with 4 dogs we need a much larger freezer and more money currently.

Raw would actually be much cheaper than the Timberwolf. You probably dont need the second freezer unless you want to buy in bulk.
