Hi PBF,

I cannot log into my old account, so I have created a new one. I have a 6.5yr old male named Malakai and a 5.5yr old female named Alani. Actually Alani is more of my girlfriend's dog, but I love her as if she was my own :) I've had both from puppyhood and they are fixed. I take them along on outdoor adventures, namely fly fishing in beautiful Northern California. We have our own swimming spots for privacy and fun times out there. Obviously its a little cold for that now ;)

I have some urgent health issues that need some advice. Hopefully I will be able to post in that area soon.

Thanks! :)

Here is my situation:

My 6.5 yr old male always had a good appetite. I have fed him Canidae for most of his life. About a month ago he stopped eating and lost weight. I took him to the vet and they told me his "calcium content" for his blood was 15, normal is 8-12.

I took him to another vet, all records faxed over, where he had another exam and ionized calcium test and blood work. That vet referred us to an specialist, who ran more test and extracted cells from his lymph nodes. He was diagnosed with Lymphoma. He was prescribed 40mg Prednisone/day.

Recently we have been contact with an intuitive animal therapist. She recommended a new high-protein dog food (Orijins Fish-based), Super Immunity (mushroom blend), Kyo Green, Raw Pro-biotic enzymes and Flor-Essence (a detox). We are supplementing meat and veggies into his food. He is also drinking alkaline water.

Lately, specifically today, things have not been so good. He won't eat anything, not even chicken or salami held right in his face. He has lost over 12lbs in a month, and his skin's elasticity is ridiculously bad. He seems dehydrated, but pukes water immediately after drinking. He puked 6 times today, mostly water. His Lymph Nodes are swollen in his neck. He is lethargic and won't even come across the room when called. He is not even interested in his ball. He hasn't eaten much in the past 3 days and nothing at all today.

My girlfriend and I have spent a lot of money already and he is deteriorating fast. At this point, all I can see is an IV hook up and ER visit to the vet. I have already taken opened a credit card to pay for his expenses, but I don't see him getting any better.

If there is anyone out here that could offer advice, please let me know. Malakai is my best friend and the best dog I could ever ask for. It is destroying me and all I want is for him to feel better, at least eat and hold his food down.

I'm so sorry to hear that Malaki is ill. I remember you and your handsome boy. I don't have any advice, but I am sending my very best thoughts and prayers.

I'm sure a Mod will come by soon and I'm hoping some others chime in with advice.
