Talking Ohm... Ohm... Ohm...

.

an imbalance in the ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 is not an "allergy".

By & large, food-purists & nutritionists are probly aware that there IS a preferred ratio; the vast majority of pet-owners are unlikely to have even the faintest glimmer, unless it's something they are concerned for, in their own diets, & then consider in their pets' diets.
Frankly, i consider it a very far reach, & if it's so worrisome, adding fish-oil or krill-oil as a supplement is pretty simple.

If U want to avoid feeding CAFO meats, by all means, find a local farmer who raises pasture-fed & silage-fed, or feeds orchard grass hay or alfalfa & swedes or whatever, & buy theirs - CSAs are an excellent idea, & buying local is a good thing.
But i just can't get exercised about Omega imbalances - it begins to sound as if the dog's chakras need rebalancing, it's becoming a matter for choosing which crystals to use in his healing.

I don't recall reading about specific SYMPTOMS the dog actually has, other than a vague reference to 'allergies'.
Does he itch, break out in a rash, develop hives, have recurrent diarrhea, vomit shortly after eating the suspect food/s, have recurrent EAR infections, lick his paws raw, ___________ ?
Has he had repeat aural haemotomas?

Not an "allergy", but causes problems with similar symptoms, which you said you had never hearts of happening.....It can come from feeding animals that had been fed grain, commercial grain or otherwise. Still produces symptoms. Could be mistaken for allergies.

Update

I spoke with her today, and asked how her dog is doing. She said that she spoke with a canine nutritionist, and her dog is now eating raw wild caught salmon, lentils, and some supplements. Her dog is improving, and is now able to sleep soundly at night without scratching and pacing. She's going to keep her on the salmon, and eventually make the move to grass-fed beef. The nutritionist also suggested a system-wide yeast infection could be causing the problems to be worse, so they are treating her for that as well. I have referred her to this site for help and appreciate everyone taking the time to offer input. Will post any updates as I receive them. Thanks!

That's awesome! Just be sure the salmon she's feeding isn't wild caught from the Pacific Northwest. Otherwise, that's perfect!
