Thank you for all your replies!

I eventually bit the bullet and took him to the vet.

Our vet, in my opinion, is fantastic. They agreed that he shouldn't be put on a hills etc diet as it's so pants nutritionally but the also wanted to avoid any meat for a while. Now, Bob being Bob won't eat just white fish - I know - he's a pain!!

So, we've agreed to put him back on fish origen for a while. To be honest, although I'm totally pro raw, if it suits him I'm going to leave him on it.

Bl**dy dogs!!

So - He's been on fish Origen since my last posting and the gagging and bile have stopped :D
His skin is still a mess but I wasn't expecting a quick fix for that so it's still work in progress.

He's eating the kibble without fuss but not with as much gusto as the raw :( Poor lamb

Number 2's are good so it must be agreeing with him :)

Could he be allergic to meat protein in general?

Fingers crossed his skin starts to improve!

Glad some improvement Clair.
If was me,whe time ckmes, I'd try meat eg rabbit or beef perhaps lamb and stear clever of anyof the poultry.

Fingers crossed the skin improves.

Ps: there is some correlation between fish and increased histamine in the body results typical itching etc something to conside re his fish oils etc? :?

For what it is worth
my eczema has come back in last few months and folks Ispeakwith say similar,/they have itchy skin. Not sure if weather,heating and now the start of the lovely pollen season...
