|I am considering using "Balance It" along with homecooking, at least for half of Joey's meals. While I don't know if his paw licking is due to food or environmental allergies (or OCD/boredom/low thyroid/something else), I figure anything's better than kibble.
You buy the "Balance It" supplement from the company's web site, and use their free recipes to go along with it. The recipes are pretty simple - you choose a protein, a carb, and occasionally something else. The recipe computes how much "Balance It" you need to complete the nutritional requirements (correct ratio of phosphorus to calcium, vitamins and minerals, etc.)
It's my understanding that the skin (prick) testing is only for environmental allergies, and that serum only works for about 60% of the dogs that it is used on. I only know of one person who has had it done, but it turned out to be accurate and a lifesaver for her dog (bichon frise).
I am also curious about NutriScan, but want to hear if it's actually accurate before I spend any money on it. I hope someone who has used it will reply to your post!
