What is the best dry dog food for a dog with allergies? My vet says the reason why my lab has ear infections is because she has allergies.

Agree with Breigh...benedryl won't help a food allergy...you need to try alternative protein/ carb diets...venison, duck etc.... Your vet will carry them. But beware, it's a slow process! You have to commit for maybe 4-6 weeks before you'll see improvement!!! Good luck!

Thanks for all your comments. I definitely think I need to change her diet.

You can also give your dog Benedryl. Vet told I could give my dog. Vet should be able to tell you what food to give.

Agreed. My yellow lab has allergies and is very itchy. Her vet prescribed Benydril.

It depends on what the allergy is,

Vegetarian dog food. It's expensive but works extremely well.

If she has a food allergy, Benadryl is not a solution. You can try a prescription diet like Hill's Z/D for a few months and see if that helps.
