misskiwi - she was on it for at least 6 months with NOTHING else and i didn't see any difference. admittedly, i got less strict after a while and started slipping her things, but that was only after months of no results otherwise. i was hoping that it was a sign that she didn't actually have food al...

z/d ultra is a prescription diet by hills. it's basically altered at the molecular level so the body is unable to recognize it as an allergen and have a reaction.

z/d ultra or......

ok, so i just posted in the canidae thread that i took wednesday off of z/d ultra and put her on canidae, which has really done a number on her. i initially switched her because i didn't really see a difference from what she was on before (at this point i don't even remember). she also didn't really...

I have nothing helpful to add. Only that I'm interested in this thread because I am on the fence myself; trying to decide if the severity and persistence of allergy symptoms warrents moving forward with the injections. I have to say the anaphylactic shock side effects rather put me off. :frown: I'm...

My dog also gets allergy shots, probably for about 6 months now. We've seen a very slight improvement and I'm hopeful we'll continue to see more! Definitely worth it IMO.

She was vaccinated sometime around 4/11/08 (I'd have to check the form for an exact date, but that's when she came to the shelter). I sort of knew the answer to this question already but my assistant manager is insisting that the dog didn't have parvo - even though he didn't see the dog. We even did...

Vet tech here :) I'm currently employed in an Emergency Clinic and prior to that I worked in a clinic at a shelter. I would say that all signs point to a parvo positive case. Has treatment already started or has an appropriate alternative decision been made? Just out of curiosity; How old is the do...

vets/techs parvo question

might seem like a weird question, but we're having a little disagreement right now here.... 1. dog presents symptoms of parvo: bloody diarrhea, dehydration, listless, weak, etc. 2. smells like parvo. 3. dog tests a strong positive for parvo (Idexx SNAP test). could the dog have anything OTHER THAN p...

what a joke. your dogs are not certified in anything, that's baloney. if you don't even know that male dogs don't go into heat, you certainly aren't knowledgeable enough to know about health testing and the like. and is this female the one with all the allergy issues? great idea to pass on those gen...
