Kramer's Salve: you are welcome, from my experience food allergy does not necessarily include vomiting or diarrhea but your vet will know your pet best. Also bathing as often as possible can cause dry skin and itchiness (think of when our skin is dry how it feels.)

Janice: Should it be plain yogurt? I'll have to look for some and see if Mattie likes it. How much would you give to a pup? Have any particular brand that your pal likes?

Kramer's Salve: Kramer use to eat anything, pickles, tofu, and some other stuff he shouldn't have. So all I had to do was feed it to him directly. But anything flavored (and taste like "ice cream") usually worked. Also they really need one or two teaspoons per day, for about 7/14 days- anything else is a bonus. But My brood is partial to Stonyfield Farms vanilla and strawberry and ate it as a treat at least once a week. If you want to really have Mattie make a mess, you can freeze it as well :) Quite a few quality dog foods will also have probiotics in them as well. They are usually listed in the ingredients as "Dried Lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product, Dried Bacillus subtilis fermentation product, Dried Enterococcus faecium fermentation product"
