    i’m glad your recovery is going well! Slow and steady..

    Airing them out can definitely help as long as he is not bothered by his ears being up- lol

    Once the medication has cleared the infection he should be much more comfortable. What kind of meds is he on? Is he on an oral steroid or antihistamine?

    As far as food goes, as Mike mentioned corn and wheat are the main culprit. Oat flour, pearled barley and oat fiber are generally ok ( oat fiber is just fiber, as is it the casing of the oats. Some dogs are sensitive to grains in general, and in that case oat flour , barley and oat fiber would not be beneficial. Generally if you have a food allergy or sensitivity it could take 4-6 weeks to see a difference with a diet change.

    Some dogs do have seasonal allergies as well.
