    What kind of problems? I have added virgin coconut oil to my dog's diet to help with dry flakey skin. It seems to help!

    Feed better raw.. looks like a allergy to me. Dog probably chewing it's feet causing sores.

    I was making the raw. I believe really good. 70 % meat 30% vegetables.

    Looks very similar symptoms to what one of had when her grass allergies flared up.

    My dog does get seasonal allergies from grass and what not outdoors. They'll flare up after hiking or doing a lot outside, a bath with some allergy shampoo after such an outing usually does a good job of minimizing his skin's reaction!

    Your dog has allergies for sure. My guess it would be from the meat protein source or environmental allergy. Feed one type of meat and if it does not improve within a few days switch to another for example beef to pork that way you will know what meats to stay away from for your hound. Could be a environmental allergy as well. All you can do for that is wipe the dog down good with mild soap and water and a rag and give some benadryl.

    Drop the veggies and start up raw again. For dry skin I suggest duck, fish, and sheep. Or you could talk to a local butcher and get some food for cheap and add some oils to it when you feed.
