Allergies affecting the mouth 03 Jan 2012 14:03 #2493

Hi can anyone give me any advice? For a few years my oldest akita Tisha has suffered with her mouth (inflammed inside and very sore with a terrible smell) at first regular dentals sorted the problem out. But then that stopped working we were refered to a specialist in manchester who wanted to take her teeth out as he said the bacteria produced in her mouth was causing the problem. He did some tests first and found she was allergic to beef, lamb certain grasses and pollens etc. She was fine for a while as we keep her away from these products as best we can but recently the problem keeps flaring up dentals are working again along with antibiotics, anti inflamatory liquid and a tablet called atopica. But i was wondering if anyone elses pet suffered like she does and if they have any alterative ways of keeping this at bay? PLEASE ANY ALTERNATIVES GREATLY APPRECIATED. CAN'T BEAR HER BEING IN PAIN

Sorry to hear you are having a problem with Tisha. How old is Tisha. Have you tried feeding her raw food?? It does seem to work for dogs with allergies. Or you can make your own cooked food for her, so you know exactly what is going in to her food.
What sort of treats does she get ?? You could try pigs liver, slice in to small thin slices or chunks. cook in the oven on a low light for at least 30mins, you can add garlic to them as well, they love these.

You could try raw chicken wings, turkey and chicken necks. There is also fish, pilchards, sardines, try and keep to oliy fish, as this will help with her joints.
If you try the web site they will probably be able to suggest things, let them know what she is allergic to.

My Asia has allergies to all kinds of things, her mouth isn`t affected but she gets very red, guffy and inflamed ears if she has contact with any of the things she`s allergic to, she also becomes extreamly and uncomfortably itchy, she gets bloody and sore hotspots and bladder problems The only meats she can eat are lamb, chichen and turkey as far as we know, they can`t test for everything, I avoid all the stuff on her allergy list and try to use all the stuff that's on her definatly not allergic to list I give her lamb off cuts (cooked) that I get very cheap from my butcher, he does it as a favour. I boil chicken (and lamb if I can get them) bones for a stock then once a week I boil up a mixture of veg, that`s on her okay list, for about 3 hours, I then strain it and divide it into 2 plastic cartons (each one enough for 7 meals, so that's 14 meals= 2 meals a day) add the stock or some of the stock, add 5 fistfuls of oats (make sure the oats are 100% oats and don`t have any added wheat, Asia is allergic to wheat and i was cought out by one brand of oats that had added wheat! her poor old lugs became very red and guffed up ) then smash it all into a veggy mash and let it cool off, (you have to add the oats while its hot or they don`t absorb the liquid properly) Asia has either fresh cooked chicken or lamb, or the two combined, for each meal I give her a raw egg after her evening meal and in the morning she gets 3 teaspoons of high fat greek yogart. She eats every single meal and has done for about 4 years or more now

I also have to be very careful of her treats, I used to give her some treats from the pet shop that were 100% veggy but after a month her ears went wonkey again and I took her off the treats, they cleared up so I tried the treats again, yep! the ear`oles flared up again poor Asia, So I had a chat to the pet shop lady and she checked it out with her supplier (the benifits of using a god knowlegable pet shop and not buying from a big warehouse ) it turned out that they used potatoe starch to harden the treats, Asia is allergic to potatoes So now I cook all her treats as well, I grind oats into flour and make biccy things out of the flour, yogart, stock from her veggy stew, cod liver oil, egg, cheese, grated carrot, honey. I make a pastry (it helps to be a mancky pastry cook) roll it out and cut it into sticks, I also use those little pastry cutters and make "cheesy chaps" and other shaped biccy`s, you need to overcook them, burnt works okay as well

Other treats Asia loves:- carrots as they come or frozen or her special treat is carrots wrapped in the doggy pastry and cooked in the oven, she only gets them when I have time or inclination to make them. A favorite is chichen skins grilled until crispy. A quick treat is is a frozen green bean I know it doesn`t sound like much but they get eaten very quickly and she loves the stuff I'm still trying to find something that`s hard and crispy though, something that will take time to eat, she can`t eat lamb bones, they give her the squits

So, basically, everything she eats has to be checked and if you can prepare it yourself all the better

Blimey! I can narf woffle on can`t I!!! but I hope my waffling has been of some help
