My Border Collie gets red itchy feet in spring/summer. He has been to the vet everytime and had all sorts of medication. and diets. Last year we got told about this food and started him on it during summer, it did help to reduce his itching and we noticed his skin and coat looked GREAT! We have now started feeding it to him full time, so fingers crossed this year the food has created a strong skin barrier defensive so wont need any steroids or other medication!

Yes, I'd recommend this product to a friend
