Hi this is Dr. Hill. It sounds like Blu may have allergies and is slowly responding to the diet change. Allergies are usually a combination of food and environment (inhalant) allergies. You should avoid the five most common allergens in this diet (beef, chicken, lamb, dairy and grain). Can you post a picture of his feet? Many times dogs with allergies will also need antibiotics, antihistamines and an e collar (to prevent further licking of any open wounds). In a pinch, warm epsom salt soaks provide relief for swollen feet, but depending on how severe will not completely heal if there is a bacterial infection as well. Please continue to ask questions and try to post a picture.
Last time this would not go through. will try again.
If not, then you should be able to contact customer service to get help with posting.
