    We have adopted a four yr old Berner and he has had quite a few bouts with skin allergies and hot spots. We are searching for a healthy alternative to giving him predisone every three months at the vet and looking for a cure to his allergies not a patch.
    I want to wean him off traditional dog food and on to a gluten free diet with protein. Our neighbor has a Newfie who has had similar issues and was recommended a homemade gluten free diet of quinoa or rice with salmon and vegetables? It worked great for the Newfie. Fish was historically a staple food for Newfs on ships but not so much for Berners in the mountains.
    Any feedback and whether salmon would make a good alternative to chicken or beef to make my own dog food or does anyone have a better recipe to recommend as an alternative to minimize skin allergies?

    Sure....worth a try and many Berners with cancer have been on strictly fish diets for the omega 3s.....
