The dog that is allergic to cats and only eats potatoes
Joey the Alsatian-Collie cross comes out in a nasty rash if he eats any meat or has contact with cats. His allergy is also brought out if he runs through grass or jumps into water.
His owners Lisa and Scott now feed him nothing but potatoes and porridge as they are the only things they have found he is not allergic to.
Scott said Joey was consistently breaking out in boils and sores and we couldn’t find out why. After a year of taking him to the vets we finally got a special blood test performed to see what was going on. The vet was baffled and said he had never seen anything like it before.
Joey now has antibiotics and specialised dog food to help avoid his allergies and is looking much better.
