    Yep dogs can have the same allergies as humans. Luckily the most common ones seem to be skin allergies

    Find out what the breeder is currently feeding and get that for a start then transition the pup to what you prefer. A sudden change in diet can really upset thier tummy.
    I transitioned my vizsla x from dry kibble to raw over about 8 weeks....now his diet consists of chicken frames/necks, beef bones, trout bodies, rabbit, hare, vennni bones/trimmings and eggs.

    What’s his poop like on the raw diet? More, less, firm, reliable or something you need to be careful of?

    He's fed morning and night so normally has a couple or 3 poops a day and arn't excessive in quantity.
    Generally they are firm but can get soft/runny if he gets too much fat particularily from beef brisket bones.
    One difference that I have noticed from previous dogs on a commercial roll/biscuit diet is his poops dont seem to stink.

    I will definitely get her diet and follow that for a while before transitioning to anything else if required.
    Good to read the comments. Fully agree with giving the best possible start to your pup 👍

    What you have written re poops is what I would expect. Smaller diameter and less total volume compared to poops from dog roll or kibble with a lot of grain that dogs cant digest.
