Yea, I highly doubt your dog is allergic to beef or any meat in the kibble. I'm surprised your vet didn't mention this, but like shannon said, corn and wheat are THE first things to eliminate when there are allergies. Neither of those products are even great for dogs, so it's not a surprise that quite a few are allergic to them.

Switch to raw. It will be cheaper, and so much better for your dog. I'm willing to bet you'd see a difference in the first 2 weeks in terms of coat, and scratching (or lack there of).

Also, in feeding Alpo, you might think it's cheaper. But, it's only cheaper in the short term. As I'm sure you're finding out, vet bills for large dogs are expensive. And you will have one vet bill after another if you continue to feed Alpo.
