I’ve mentioned before that I have my mother ship kibble to me, which I feed the dogs in the morning with yogurt. They eat the homemade dog meatloaf in the evenings. Overall, their diet is extremely good (varied and balanced) and all three are quite healthy. But starting early this year, Mimi and Azza started scratching themselves constantly and Mimi chewed all four paws so much that they were always red and inflamed and even without hair in places. She showed extreme reluctance to walk in wet grass so for a while I thought it was either the caustic reclaimed water burning her sensitive paws or it was the sand mites triggering some sort of histamine reaction. Azza's skin was flaky and her coat looked dry and brittle. I fiddled with supplements such as fish oil but nothing seemed to give Mimi or Azza any relief.
Finally, in June, I decided to dramatically alter their diet: grain-free kibble and dog meatloaf made with oats instead of barley. I had my mother ship me some bags of Blue Freedom Grain-Free kibble and I made up a new batch of dog meatloaf. I started the dogs on their new diet right away.
I started seeing a difference in Mimi within just a few days. She no longer chews on her feet during all waking moments, and the hair has grown back. She and Azza aren’t itchy and twitchy and they enjoy being petted again. The coats of all three dogs gleam. Everyone is happier!
So in one of my infrequent product plugs, I strongly recommend Blue Freedom Grain-Free for dogs with persistent coat, skin, and itching problems.
