Dog with bad allergies

I have a dog who has bad allergies. I want to try different foods to see if that takes care of problem. Does anyone have any suggestions.

My Dog Cassie is in a photo contest run by a local company in Tallahassee FL. She is currently in 2nd place and could use your support.

Well, it'll only help if she has food allergies, plenty of dogs just have environmental allergies. Has she gone to the vet? Changing foods might be worth a shot, though, what is she currently being fed? And what are her symptoms? Has she always had allergies?

One method that's almost fool-proof is to feed a raw diet for a while since you can limit the diet to just one food at a time, know exactly where ingredients come from, etc. If you're not able to do that, try something similar (like the premade freeze-dried "raw" diets, 100% meat canned foods, etc.) or find a diet that doesn't share ingredients with her current food.

Either way, I can definitely sympathize, one of my dogs has food allergies (and another in the house, though not my dog, has environmental allergies...probably grass and/or pollen).
