The best expert on dog food is nature. I always look back to a wild dog's diet for any problems I incur. So a variety of quality raw meat and bones is always best, but can create a clearing effect initially - vomiting, loose stool, bad skin. If this is short lived, it was beneficial. The services of a holistic vet, especially one who practices homeopathy may give you the support you may need. Allergies are more likely to occur if the food contains preservatives - most do despite the claims on the label. Or can be from factory farmed meat which is full of growth hormones, antibiotics and junk food.
Dogs are omnivores so can eat lots of fresh, raw fruit and veggies too. Grate it up for them and let them choose. One of my dogs will eat any fruit or veggie under the sun. The other will only eat grated carrot.
