    Bear has developed what appears to be an allergy. His skin has always been redder than his brother's and he feels warmer than Zak, too. He's a bit OCD and likes to lick/chew so has had a buster collar on recently if unsupervised.

    I've removed all cereal from his diet. This has helped, as has the evening primrose oil. He's raw fed, nothing new in his diet. What else can I do? Elimination diet to see if he's allergic to his food? I feed a lot of chicken, hope it's not that!

    Is there maybe a blood test vets can do to see if he has any allergies?

    I think an elimination diet is the way to go or maybe you could do it in reverse removing one protein source at a time for a period of 2/4 weeks and then adding it back in or removing another protein source to see if you can spot a trigger.
