Streets had a small MCT removed a couple of years ago now. The homeopath I was consulting with at the time (for other stuff) recommended that Streets stick with a raw diet and be given absolutely no grains, and supplemented with chlorella. So far, we've had no further issues.

The forum search can be found near the top of your screen in a menu bar with Store, Logout, Profile, etc. Both my dogs get acne seasonally, though as was mentioned, some dogs seem to also be sensitive to plastic bowls or toys. I've asked a couple of vets about it and the consensus seemed to be to ju...

Streets has a pretty limited diet at this point due to developing intolerances to various meats, specifically beef, bison, turkey and lamb. We're left with chicken, rabbit and duck at this point. Weirdly though, he ate chicken for a long time without issue, then started to no longer tolerate it so I...

Streets had a mast cell tumor removed last summer, but it was tiny and graded as lower than 1 or pre-cancerous or some such business, the terminology for which I'm obviously not remembering. Basically we just had it removed, made changes to his diet, added some appropriate supplements and that was i...

Yeah, I've wondered about that too, given that Streets had a mast cell tumor removed about a year and a half ago. For my situation specifically, as it's a quality of life issue. The acid reflux thing was really, really bad and made Streets miserable and the honey has made such a huge difference that...

Pitgrrl- is there anything that you can recommend for the acid reflux; anything that seems to help Streets? That is also something we are suppose to be looking out for. Right now he gets 2 acid controller pills a day and there is slippery elm in the Essiac that he also gets twice a day. The only th...

Re: is this nausea?

Max is hacking much more than usual since last night. It's like a dry hacking, kinda like a cough sound. The only way to describe it something like a smokers cough, or like a cat with a hair ball. No puke or anything; nothing is coming up with the cough. I am just worried because we are suppose to ...

This probably isn't remotely helpful in this case since we're not talking about a wound, but on the off chance........

He thinks his system is "inflammed" and could all be anxiety based. It kind of seems we are at which came first the chicken or the egg. is anxiety creating the tummy issue, or is the tummy issue creating the anxiety. I think for some dogs the two are not really able to be disentangled fro...

it shouldn't suddenly make him aggressive toward humans or fearful/submimssive . . . could he be in pain and acting out as a result? has he shown a tendency toward shyness or anxiety about coming out of his crate in the past? Along these lines, have you been limiting his exercise post-neuter, perha...

How many meals a day you feed is kind of an individual thing. I feed 3 times, some feed once, others twice, it just depends on how your dogs do best. Amount of food is also individual. Are you feeding 2lbs a day split into 2 meals or 4lbs total a day? The typical starting point is about 2% of the do...

Hmmm..like Anal gland smell? I'm not sure what that smells like - but it does seem like the smell of their breath would be more appropriate coming out of their other end. The best thing I can liken it to is this Asian fish sauce called Patis. Anal gland secretions can smell fishy, in the most disgu...
