Allergy Question

I suspect that Boris is allergic to cow. He gets the itchy eyes whenever he gets a rawhide. So I am wondering if a leather collar would also be problematic for him. Has anyone had a hound react to beef products?

We have one who is allergic to beef & chicken and his collar never bothered him. His first reaction to eating either is itchy ears and then skin, not diarrhea.

 

There is a good chance he is having problems with whatever chemical is used in the rawhide. Especially problematic if they are made in China. Try an all natural bully stick from a good company here in the US. There are a couple who are members of this forum.

Yes, the rawhide is pretty nasty, and has lots of chemicals in it. It can also get caught/stuck in the intestional tract. Not a good thing sad.gif .

 

Bully sticks, sweet potato chews, RAW marrow bones, elk or deer antlers, are all good, safe chews.

 

I'd eliminate the rawhide, and see if the allergies improve. Good Luck!
