Before trying all kinds of random stuff and silly diets, perhaps aggressively pursue a veterinary diagnosis instead.

Before you make a comment you should read my post. I can't stand people who give their opinions without reading the whole post.

Perhaps you should detail which answers you want before asking for opinions so that we don't have to waste our time trying to help you if we won't tell you whatever it is you want to hear.

I asked a question plain and simple. I gave details on why I asked my question which you obviously did not read so take your snide attitude and move on.

I read your post. Stop messing with silly diets and spend your money on diagnostic testing instead.

Is there any possibility of an undetected environmental alllergen or the mites you posted he's allergic to? Could be dyes or materials (or mites?) in a dog bed or upholstery that he sticks his face into/burrows into (or your shoes/work clothes/etc.). Maybe something as minute as thread used to sew the items together. Or finishes/cleaners on furniture/floors/etc.  Or maybe something in the yard. Some stuff is persistent in the environment for years and decades (remember stuff no longer made or sold, too). Some parasites, baceteria, etc. are hard to detect, as well.

Hope you and your vet are able to figure it out soon. It's heartbreaking to want to do something to help our dogs, but can't seem to find anything that works.

Jill your an idiot plain and simple. I won’t waste my time explaining anything to you. No need for you to post in this thread. People like are a waste of time and energy.

GSCat. My boy has been allergy tested for environmental and food. I have no clue what is in my home as far as storage mites. Us humans have no marks or itching.
Waiting on results of his skin biopsy’s.

Jettasmom To answer you opening question directly and truthfully : Yes and No .

Yes - There are some Autoimmune Diseases that are point blank , ipso facto , genetic in origin ... Such examples are : Rheumatoid Athritis , Scleroderma , Lupus Erythematosis to name a few.

No - Because there are circumstances whereby an Autoimunne Disease Syndrome / Response is actually a secondary occurance as a reult of some other ailment. For example , Mercury Posioning : If someone got severe prolonged mercury poisoning , a consequence of that could result a secondary autoimmune affect. People are concerned with certain vaccinations , also due to an autoimmune reaction . Large concentrations of garlic eaten by dogs may also precipitate an autoimmune reaction. I once saw a GS that was perfectly healthy and who went for his annual exam and vaccinations . One week later he couldn't get off the ground . He had a vascular autoimmune response whereby the terminal arteries degenreated causing gangrene to the point his bones in his paws started to show in a matter of days !! This was an autoimmune reaction .. BTW , HIV is another example of an external cause of an Autoimmune disease whichnis brought on secondarily by a virus , yes ..

So to repeat ... Autoimmune Disease / Reactions can be genetic in origin or they can be Environmentally/ Externally Induced / Precipitated .
