I know from my own experience with an allergy ridden pet that chicken products and grains (wheat) exacerbate her allergy symptoms.
Many commercial kibble brands are just crap loaded with fillers like grains, and often have crude protein and fats from chicken. Look for more natural brands without those ingredients (bison, yam, fish and rice are usually not problematic). Better yet, supplement your pets diet with fish oil (human brands are more pure), fresh raw meats (introduce gradually), and chopped vegetables, along with small doses of cottage cheese. Also, I’ve found that our dog reacted favorably to Evening Primrose Oil (a natural anti-inflammatory oil).
VERY good advice but to add on a bit:
Please don’t take any chances with your pets. You don’t get any feedback from them like you would signs from a human. Be sure to post this on a pet specific site as well as CONSULT A VET. They are well worth the money.
