Default Allergies?

Gizmo keeps licking his paws, making tiny noises that resemble a very quiet sneeze and paws at his eyes or maybe ears?

Sounds like it could be an allergy. Licking feet is usually a contact allergy. Like to grass or weeds. I once thought one of my dogs had an allergy, but it turned out to be a nervous habit of licking feet, so you never know for sure. Your vet can do allergy testing. I usually just give a dose of liquid benedryl. If the itching is relieved I figure it's an allergy to something. I feel comfortable doing that because any time I've gone to the vet for a possible allergy problem he tells me to do that.

I have relieved what appeared to be allergy reactions in both my dogs by changing their diet to a grain free kibble, and adding in Omega oils. Stopped all their frantic itching and licking.

Yeah I think it may be food allergies I did some research and apparently I'm feeding him an awful food I had thought was one of the best!

I feel terrible saying this but he's been eating Purina puppy chow! I thought it was healthy food but I've looked into it and it's not what I thought it was I've read reports where many people have lost their dogs from being sick off of Purina

Yikes, get him off that stuff like before his next meal...lol. It's TERRIBLE. If you have any questions about what to look for in a good food, feel free to ask away

Thank you and I live in the US so do you have any ideas what I could get? He's my first puppy I've ever had and I want to raise him right and healthy
