ok I know this is a topic that has been talked about alot here the past few days but I still have ?'s.

Prissy has always had red staining on her front paws from licking. She doesnt bite or chew it. She has always done this but I think it could be related to the fact that she has always had food with rice and corn. She doesnt go outside much and when she does I have to force her to get in the grass she doesnt like to get dirty she will just lay on the porch. This makes me think that it might be food related. I can not afford to have another trip to the vet so I just thought after she has her pups to switch her to a food that doesnt have rice and or corn I would like to find out what the problem is. It doesnt seem to drive her mad. The stain just bothers me.

I was wondering if anyone could suggest a good food that is free of corn and or rice. I seem to have a hard time finding one.

Wellness fish/potato is my first choice for no rice/corn. I really like Wellness brand.

Most dogs that are itchy/licking do not have food allergies. Only a relatively small percentage of them do. Most of the time it is boredom or inhalent allergies. Of course, switching to a high quality, human-grade ingredient food can't hurt.

If you want to do a hypoallergenic diet with Kodie you should call Cornell and ask if the Maltese tofu diet is appropriate for him. I would not feed him an over-the-counter commercial diet unless they approve it.
