Nookie did GREAT on the rolled oats for about 3 months, and really, he may still do well. We were thinking the likely culprit was the oats, but one of our vets is thinking it is the beef. We did stop the oats more than 2 weeks ago (and he has dropped a little weight again), but the itchies haven't subsided, and in fact, have gotten worse. So maybe it is the beef
I'm still going to try the millet and see if he can tolerate it, but I'll wait until a couple of weeks after the beef is removed to see if there's any difference.

I'll definitely let you know how it does. Our western vet thinks very highly of this product and I have a lot of respect for her, so I trust her opinion and judgement. I have to wait until the holistic vet opens again next Tuesday just to make sure it's safe with the other meds he's on. It takes 3-4 weeks to have a noticeable difference. Here's hoping it helps him!!
