Allergies are a tough one. Like Claporte said try giving him something he has never had before and stay away from ingredients that say "bi-product".
Considering where we live it could be dry skin too. The omegas will help with that.
FYI-We just had to take one of our dogs to the vet for vomiting and diarrhea. The vet ran some tests and thinks it is salmonella poisoning. We feed Purina, which wasn't on the recall, but Purina One Cat food was.
Yadlim, you posted the same link I was going to post.

Anything you can buy at your local grocery store is not good quality food. While some vets are stepping away from saying 'you must feed this & this' a lot of those brands have fillers & junk in them. It sounds like he needs something grain-free if he's still reacting a holistic diet.

Nutro: Has a new grain-free recipe that many people have liked
Blue Buffalo: Has a new grain-free recipe as well as their 'Basics' line. Basics is a VERY limited ingredient feed for extremely sensitive dogs. It's expensive especially when feeding a large dog (but that's kinda what you end up getting yourself into with a large dog anyways... I would know I have 3 of 'em).
AvoDerm: Does not have a grain-free line (I don't believe) & I've never personally met a dog that actually LIKES their food. It's a completely vegetarian diet as well (what dog wants to really do that to themselves?).

Like someone else pointed out stay away from Chicken & Beef. Lamb is usually highly recommended, but venison & duck would be fine as well. I'd also start him on joint supplements (again someone already pointed this out).

And get rid of the BioSpot. That stuff is absolute crap. Put him on some Frontline or K9 Advantix (don't use Advantix if you have a cat in the house as well).

If feeding dry food would you believe WalMart's Old Roy is one of the better ones but it too contains soymeal. My dogs eat it, not skin problems altho if they did develop some I'd be quite to change to a soy free product.
