I have a stary who is living in my basement with this dieses some meds have worked and others haven’t. Currently I am on the not working but I can’t catch her to get her back to the vet. She allows me to pet her but when I try to grasp her by neck she uses her back feet to get loose. She isn’t eating to I can’t even get the new meds in her to help her. We been dealing with this for 2 years now, I don’t know what to do. I had her on the lysine and plac off but she stopped eating the food with in a week and is in a lot of pain. I’m starting to consider just having her put down I’ve exhausted so much time in to resolving this and I get 3 steps forward and 10 steps back. My main issue is I can’t catch her its so hard to see her in paid she is such a nice cat.
When asked what advice she would offer to other dog owners, Catherine suggests that owners never assume that their dog is allergic to just one thing. If the dog has allergies, they are usually allergic to several different elements. She also suggests that if dog owners decide to use Prednisone, they should go with the lowest dosage available and look into giving them milk thistle to prevent against liver damage. Owners should be open to trying new medications and therapies and never give up. It’s important to try everything they can to keep their pup as comfortable as possible.
I have 4 Scottish Deerhounds. I have gone over to raw diet as I am fed up with seeing all sorts of chemicals added to dry foods. Dry food to me is processed food. As with humans processed food is convenient but causes so many health problems ….. I understand everything is made up of chemical elements but dogs in the wild ate animal and vegetable matter. The food companies are obliged to state, by law what is in the foods but i know there are some food stuffs that do not need to be disclosed….they’re the ones i’m afraid of.
I give commercially prepared raw food…meats with crushed bones, fruit and veg added added. Usually 85% meat and crushed bone 15% apple, carrot, butternut squash, sea kelp, salmon oil and in 2 of the meats,..chicken and lamb have 50mg/kg VitC. I also give a small chicken carcass, usually one per dog every other day. these carcasses are tiny and only the breast section. Are my dogs getting too much calcium. Their poos are rock hard, much paler and less of it. They do not seem to have any outward problem and all other signs and symptoms appear to be very normal. But am I interfering with their insides??? I also add, SOMETIMES, broccoli, cauliflower, peas (crushed) and sweetcorn ….all mixed frozen veg from supermarket, defrosted and blitzed in the blender then give 2 tablespoons each dog. extra fruit of apples and bananas and segments of satsumas. also they get natural yogurt when I have it… 2 big spoons each I weigh my dogs regularly and feel for condition and alter any quantities according to weight/exercise ..(had to do same for horses)
