Re: B.A.R.F. 101

I will continue to provide him kibble as a base for his nutrition.... Why? personal choice.... he gets the needed vitamins and minerals from the kibble, so I don't need to give him supplements. I know for a fact I'm not the only one here that feeds both kibble and raw. Yes, some people choose to fe...

Re: Nero had a seizure

YAY!!!

Could you please post a description of what you tried, what worked, and what did not? :)
Not every dog is the same and your experience may help an other.

And for the ear issues...have you tried probiotic supplements?

Re: Thyroid fun for everyone.

Hmmm...I'm thinking two things: Liver/Spleen issues - you could try giving him liver as a supplement which will help with the RBC, vit A (nerves), and metal cofactors. The liver and thyroid are very connected... or - Go Ketogenic 70% calories from fat, ZERO carb, to work on the emotional stuff, firs...

Re: Thyroid fun for everyone.

I'd also read up on Iodine and switch to a fish based diet to see if that helps. (Kelp is also a supplement for iodine issues.)

Re: New dog with allergies?

They can also talk through options like short-term steroids, a hypoallergenic diet trial, and the various antihistamines to target the allergies themselves. The average vet (like the a...

Re: New dog with allergies?

FYI - I was giving Monte 7 squirts a day, for his 62 lb +15 year old body... Read up on the O6:O3 ratio issue on the link, as it likely also is an issue with the humans in your life. One of the nice things about fixing my ratios is that I'm very cold tolerant now. I can swim in really cold showers a...

Re: confused about rice and potatoes.

Studies don't seems to be conclusive anyhow Yes, didn't I say that.. But then again, we get back to the issue that science is a trailing industry. Clinicians see events/phenomenon and researchers hear about it, leading to eventual research. Besides, no pharmaceutical company is going to make money ...
