t/j @zebra25 - Check out They have an allergen-free dog food called Ultra, and a whole line of foods they say are for "skin support".

It's most likely they were discontinuing the food you were using to have these different formulas. Check with your vet - I'm guessing that some of these would probably work for your dog.

Thank you so much for the info. We are on our last bag of food and I am so worried about giving her something different. The vet gave us the wrong food one time, also an allergy food made by Hills, we didn't catch it right away and she got very sick for a few days.

I hate that I have to change her food now because she is about 16 and does great on her current food.

Thanks again!!

Well, you'll have to talk to the vet no matter what, because they are prescription foods. The vet may have samples you can try to see which, if any, agree with her.

Also, there is another company (I forget the name) which sells prescription foods in the pet stores, usually right along side the Hills foods. Our cat is on the Hills k/d (for kidney disease), and we've sometimes given her the equivalent in the other food. We don't anymore, because the other brand seems to disagree with her... but their equivalent of an allergen-free food might work for your dog.

If none of those work, you might have good luck with some of the foods others here have mentioned. You may just have to keep trying until you find one that she can handle. And there are lots of recipes out there for dog food if you want to delve into making it yourself. Doing that means you would be able to tweak until you get something that works best for her.
