Tales from a really cute Shih Tzu

I have really bad allergies

Momma took me to the dogtor because I am scratching my self raw. I also rub my ears on the carpet. Now, I have always had bad allergies since mom got me from the shelter. In fact, that's why my first people gave me away. They couldn't afford all the vet bills. (Mom can't either) So mom knew I had issues when she took me home. Well, they seem to be getting worse. For a long time, I went to the vet every 3 months for shots of cortisone and it helped, but this time, it hasn't helped at all.

Now, I have been on Duck and Potato food for my whole life and the vet said she wants me to try Prescription Z/D diet Ultra. This is what it has in it:

Starch, Hydrolyzed Chicken Liver, Soybean Oil (preserved with BHA, propyl gallate and citric acid), Hydrolyzed Chicken, Powdered Cellulose, Lactic Acid, Dicalcium Phosphate, Calcium Carbonate, Glyceryl Monostearate, Potassium Chloride, Iodized Salt, Choline Chloride, vitamins (Vitamin E Supplement, L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate (source of vitamin C), Niacin, Thiamine Mononitrate, Vitamin A Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid), DL-Methionine, minerals (Ferrous Sulfate, Zinc Oxide, Copper sulfate, Manganous Oxide, Calcium Iodate, Sodium Selenite), Taurine, preserved with Mixed Tocopherols & Citric Acid, Rosemary Extract, Beta-Carotene.

It is VERY expensive. Almost $4.00 a can and $37.00 for 8 pounds of dry.

Well, guess what? I hate it and won't touch it. I'll starve to death first.

Do any of my pals have this issue? What do your mommies do? I am desperate.
