For those of you who have allergy dogs like me. I was reading this article yesterday and wondered if there was any merit to it. Has anyone ever heard of this or does anyone have experience with this... plastic versus glass or stainless bowls?

"Many pet owners find that switching their dog's food and water bowls to glass or stainless steel ones makes a huge difference. Others find more investigation is necessary. Walk your dog on pavement and avoid all grass. Refrain from using carpet cleaning powders and scented sprays in areas where the dog frequents. Purchase hypoallergenic bedding for your pet. Once you have narrowed down the item or items causing the allergic reaction, you can eliminate exposure to it."

I've gone through it all with my allergy cat...turns out her allergens are food based as opposed to environmental.

I've heard the theory but never known a dog whose allergies have been helped by a change of bowl material. My angel boy's allergies were seasonal, environmental and controlled via CortiSoothe baths frequently, along with Benedryl when he was severely itchy. Finn has just started scratching in the past few weeks (he's almost seven), and I have no idea what's set him off. It sure would be nice if it were as easy as the article you quoted to get a handle on a golden's "itchies", but I don't think it is:)
