So my JRT has been on raw for almost a year now. He has food allergies (view my first post about his skin issues). His red, bumpy rash is back And I think he has an ear infection, he has black/brownish stuff in one of his ears and he shakes his head often... When we started him on PMR, using chicken backs, etc, his red rash disappeared. He's still on a chicken diet, I add salmon oil and kefir to his meals. We've been noticing his red rash was back a couple of weeks ago. Sometimes it's better, sometimes it's really red, we can see his ears and inside his ears are really red. So I wondered, what is it that we're giving him that causes his skin to become inflamed/red and I remembered that the week before, I gave him eggs... He'd get raw chicken eggs and quail eggs sometimes. So I have a feeling he's allergic to eggs... Before realizing it could be the eggs, I thought it could be the chicken but how would that be possible when we started PMR with him using chicken backs, thighs, etc and THAT made his initial rash go away... :/ So right now we're checking his belly everyday and not giving him eggs. And next week if his skin is better we'll give him eggs again to see if it causes his skin to become red again. What do you guys think?
Also, his ear infection... How can I go at treating that without using meds from the vet? Not that I don't want to go see the vet but I would prefer treating him naturally :/ Unless he really needs a treatment from the vet... Help!
