This is food allergy. Some small breeds of dog are allergic to chicken or other food additives... check what you are feeding your dog. Chicken and beef may have other things in them that were shot into them before they ended up in your dogs food. You may need to do a raw diet with your dogs.

Sounds like a food allergy to me. I have been breeding dogs for forty years and use a natural diet consisting of raw meet, cut up veggies, fruits and vitamins. In the morning they get porridge softened with buttermilk. It is very easy to follow and you can make batch for the week or month and freeze it. You can google Natural Food for dogs or puppies and look for Juiiette Levy. She has the best diet. The only time I or any of my clients had any problems with allergies, it was because of going off this diet. Try it I guarantee you won't have anymore problems
