Atopica is a very good drug but expensive. My dog was the 10 percent that got sick on it. If it works it is a miracle. I also think that goldens have a lot of sensitivities, I have another one that has battled allergies all his life.
Thank you - it isn't an easy path for sure! Since his acupuncture started, I've put him back on cooked food and so far so good. The acupuncture vet suggested we try it. I kept the vegetarian kibble just in case though..

Good luck with your Boston's diet - as you say, it may take a lifetime..
