Allergy to stainless steel bowls?

I was reading up on some dogs that have an allergy to stainless steel. I have always fed my dog with stainless steel bowls and never considered this to be a possible problem that is causing his itching.

Just wondered if anyone has a dog with allergies to particular metals?

Allergy to bowls happens where there is contact to the bowl like around the mouth it does not extend to the rest of the body to my knowledge.

Like Dawn the only cases I've seen (bowl allergies) have resulted in problems on the jaw ans face ( basically where the bowl touches), but not elsewhere. Haveing said that if you want to swap for a ceramic thats up to you.

I have read that if it is not a quality stainless steel bowl, they could ingest nickel which is a allergen to the skin. I read that a bowl that says "dishwasher safe" is a better quality stainless steel bowl.

If its not dishwasher safe its not really stainless no matter what the label says. The fake stainless bowls rust too.

I just recently ordered some stainless steel bowls that are made in the USA. They're from Platinum Pets, I believe. I've also ordered some, that have not come yet, from a company called Basis Pet. They are also made in the USA. Before I ordered these bowls I also used some Corelle bowls from my every day dishes set. They are made in the USA. I have noticed that my mixed breed has lost a brownish stain she had on the side of her muzzle that has been there for quite awhile. I'm thinking it is because I'm using better quality bowls, but who knows.

I didn't know that it would only be a contact allergy. His face isn't the problem. He scratches all over. I thought if he was consuming the nickel that may contribute to his scratching.

I have him on a limited ingredient grain free diet right now. I hope it is the food because the other things are hard to figure out without allergy testing being done.

What food exactly? Lid duck was worse than almost anything - the protein is a big deal
