That is very interesting. I suggested a friend try this food as well, her elderly retriever was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome, and he is currently eating some Iams formula that has kangaroo as the main protein (Iams Veterinary Formula Skin and Coat Response KO/Canine Dry Formula). It has h...

Eureka!!!

For anyone who remembers Tula, and her allergy problems... Over the last couple months I've tried various types of kibble. We don't have access to a lot of allergy formulas here, so I had been trying out different grain free formulas, holistic brands etc. I had been hesitant to try California Natura...

They can see the brain damage because they not only look at the brain grossly, but they also take tiny slices of brain tissue, stain them, and look at them under the microscope. They would have done this to check for Negri Bodies (pathognomonic for rabies infection) in the neurons. For future refere...

Thanks guys! Emma: definitely agree. Its terrifying sometimes the things that vets suggest to me; being a vet STUDENT I know that we get little to no education when it comes to nutrition, and what we do learn is usually through food companies. I'm 100% for a homecooked diet, and I may still end up g...

Tula saw the vet today. We opted to do a skin scraping just to rule Demodex out; didn't find a single one, so definitely no Demodex. They assume its allergy related as well, so didn't prescribe an antifungal or antibiotic. Tula was prescribed Burrows solution with 1% hydrocortisone; 2 drops twice da...

Good allergy formulas

Hills Prescription Diet: ZD Ultra low Allergen Formula. I looked at the ingredients, and I'm sure I don't want to feed that to my dog. Ingredients: Starch, Hydrolyzed Chicken Liver, Soybean Oil (preserved with BHA, propyl gallate and citric acid), Hydrolyzed Chicken, Powdered Cellulose, Dicalcium Ph...

Thought about ringworm; not ruling it out. Doesn't really look like the ringworm lesions I've seen, but that doesn't mean anything.

Tiva; you may be on to something there; she definitely grooms herself quite a bit.

New symptom

First of all: Tula is going to the vet tomorrow. I'm just posting this incase someone else might have experience with it. I had posted about Tulas *unknown* allergy issues, and subsequent itchy skin and ears. Ears are full-fledged infected now, I did cultures so I know its Malassezia (yeast) and som...

Looked at the cytology from her swab today, and my bacti prof also did a gram stain. On both there was A LOT of malassezia, negligible amounts of bacteria, and literally NO inflamatory cells. That seems to indicate that there is a fairly significant yeast population colonizing her ear canal, but her...

Wanted to update again; Swabs are in, so we'll find out within the next 2 days or so what exactly grows. While swabbing her ears yesterday (which she didn't particularly enjoy; but bf gave her a 2 foot long rawhide bone afterwards so she quickly forgave us HAHAHA) I got to get a good look at them. T...

Thanks guys! I'm going to reply to the ad with a few questions, but sounds like its a pretty good deal!

Assuming I'm going my calculations properly if I could get turkey this cheap consistently I could really afford to feed both of my animals raw for a lot cheaper than kibble would cost.. hrmm.
