No more tummyaches for this happy girl!!

results are in and we've got some answers.
Yesterday afternoon was the two-week mark since Claire's appointment with the specialist, so naturally, I called them first thing this morning to see if her RAST (radioallergosorbent test) results had come back yet. Thankfully they did, and we now have answers! Claire's constant trouble with GERD is definitely caused by an allergic reaction. The tests showed that she has a very high level of eosinophils in her blood because she is extremely allergic to... poultry [I KNEW IT!!], oats, wheat, yeast, apples, and bananas. Now that I know this, I can buy dog food that doesn't have any of these ingredients in it. The vet recommended that I get either kangaroo or venison from California Natural, or either bison or fish from Solid Gold [What can I say? Claire has an advanced palette!] Either way, I just found out that I can get both of those brands delivered straight to my house through Mr. Chewy.** So again, thank you all for your kind words and prayers throughout the past few weeks! They have helped immensely, and now Claire is on the road to recovery!
