Hi Gayle, I to have went through the same thing with my gsd. We did steroids for almost his first year trying to figure out what was causing his outbreaks and ear infections. I tried every commercial dog food that I could just to be put on Purina HA. It has made a big difference but he also takes Apoquel. It looks like he’s allergic to proteins so the Purina HA is hydrolyzed and his body doesn’t recognize it as a protein. Best of luck on your journey.
