Well, so far we've had only so-so results using the Natural Balance Limited Ingredient Fish and Sweet Potato food (mix of kibble and wet). He still has a pretty red belly, and his skin there is scaly and rough almost like eczema.
Since my goal is to get him to a place where his skin is healthy and rash free, I think we are going to switch up his food to try something different. I initially chose the Natural Balance not because I love the food but because it was limited ingredient, a novel protein, and also not so expensive or hard to find that adopters wouldn't want to feed it.
Then mixed into the rehydrated veggie/vitamin mix I am using raw, ground sardine from Primal since sardine is such a great source of omega 3's.
Right now we are just starting a slow transition onto the new food. He has not been a picky eater and seems to like it so we'll see if we start to notice some changes for the better with his skin.
If this does work and I can get him healthy then we will start some trials of other proteins to try to find some other options for him since it is always best to rotate foods for your dog.
Wish him luck!
