I have recently adopted a three year old airedale terrier, who, as a result of a past diet of hotdags and Ol Roy canned dog food, has lost quite a bit of his hair. I know that Airdales have a tendency to have food allergies, mainly to wheat and corn (the first two ingredients on Ol Roy!) so I went straight to the petstore to buy a good quality dogfood that is high in protein, and is wheat/corn free. I purchased Nature's recipe Healthy skin Venison & Rice recipe dry, as well as the canned stew version. Yogi was not at all interested in the canned stew, and flat refused to try it. He did try to eat the dry, but for every time he tried to eat it, it fell out of his mouth, and he quickly gave up. I opened his mouth to find that he is missing several of his teeth. He resembles a horse who has the space for a bit! I have tried mixing the canned with the dry, and he won't try it. I have tried pouring chicken broth over the dry to make it easier to eat, and he won't have that, either! I even tried to give him my puppy's Eukenueba puppy dry food, even though it has wheat in it, but he has trouble eating that as well. I flat refuse to feed this dog his old diet of hotdogs and Ol ROy- Can anyone help? The poor dog is surviving on Iams Proactive Health Puppy buisuits, because these or the only things that he can manage to keep in his mouth long enough to chew. Even these, however containWheat flour as a first ingeredient, so these are doing no favors for his hair loss and oily skin problems. I need some recommendations. Is there anyone out there that has any recommendations for us? I thought about going to a raw food diet, but to purchase raw meat in quantities enough to sustain his nutritional needs could be cost preventive fo me, as a single mom. Are there any Airedale owners out there who have experienced something like this, or anyone who has experience issues with an allergic dog?
