Allergies?

Gambit's paws are really really red. I feel terrible. They look so sore. The vet suspects it's allergies. He also itches at his ears a lot, so he is balding around his ears. I don't know what he's allergic to. It's been since we moved to our new house, so about a year now, although he has always had red eyes. Even when we lived at the apartment the vet was saying he had allergies. We have tried him on a different food (kangaroo - the idea being it is totally alien to his system) and he hated it, refused to eat, and we didn't notice a change. This summer, the vet put him on steroids but it just made him sleepy and grouchy and a bit sick to his stomach.

I don't know what to do, he seems so uncomfortable. I know bostons are often allergic, any idea what might be troubling my boy?
