|I think you could try it and see what happens. Buy a small bag, mix it slowly with the old food and do the change slowly. If you notice his problems get worse, then you can go back to the Blue. Some places will even refund your money if you return the partially used bag (with receipt) and tell them your dog can't eat it.
NB does have a chicken LID formula too, you might want to try that if you're nervous about too big of a change. Or a lamb and brown rice formula, if you think changing to grain free will cause problems. If money is an issue, sometimes the other formulas are also less expensive than the fish ones.
You may even find that it was the chicken or the rice that doesn't sit well with him, and that changing that up helps. Zack is allergic to rice and always does better on fish than he does on chicken. Zack is also allergic to lamb, but we've tried the canned NB bison, venison, duck, and fish formulas as toppers, he liked them all.
ETA: For sensitive dogs, I'd change one thing at a time so if there are problems, you know what caused them. Transition to the new food before adding fish oil, or add the fish oil to his current food and be sure it doesn't set him off before trying the new food. If you do both at once, and have problems, you won't know whether it was the food or the fish oil.
