hi nick how is she doing?August 4, 2008 at 12:38 pm #82802AnonymousGuest
No Mudgie Milk Thistle is used for the liver, At the moment I would wait while the immune system gets a boost, and let Nick continue with the shampoo’s and cream, I have some things we can try but lets see if we get any improvement with the bare minimum.

Heehee witchy woo, I love it. ;DAugust 6, 2008 at 12:18 am #82805
Sadie was a bit rough over the weekend, very lethargic, loose stool , got puffed easily and generally off. however, it appears she’s turned a corner…yesterday and today her stool was firm and “healthy” , her appetite was good and her energy is returning (hard to tell because it’s been over 30 degrees) .
Her pyoderma is progressing nicely I think..no new spots, skin is no longer pink/red, dry and clean, crusty stuff has gone just a couple on her front legs, not bothering her
She hasn’t been swimming since last tuesday and she’s not happy about that, we’ve kept her walks calm and short, just been doing some brain work with her
we’ve been giving her Vit E (1 capsule), Selenium (1/4 tablet), cod liver oil, sardines, scrambled eggs, mashed, carrots, a small beef bone (all I had) , some apple cider vinegar in her water, a little garlic
for the pyoderma, have just kept it clean with hydro peroxide , going to look for the benz per tomorrow
we’ll see how she is tomorrow, hopefully the improvement will continueAugust 6, 2008 at 7:37 am #82806kizkiznobiteMember
hope she soon back up to speed :-*August 6, 2008 at 8:20 am #82807SweetypyeMember
A caveat, you are giving CLO which contains Vitamin A, as do sardines, eggs, carrots and no doubt your commercial or raw/cooked food.
Be very careful you are not overdoing the Vitamin A which can cause skin problems and is toxic to the liver; you may be wiser to consider Fish Body oil instead that does not contain the fat soluble vitamins A and DAugust 6, 2008 at 9:22 am #82808Kerry_and_BeauMember
glad she is starting to do better, thats great 🙂August 6, 2008 at 1:44 pm #82809
The Sel and Vit E she’s had every day, but the other things we’re staggering so she’s only having 1 source of Vit A per day. I saw a few varieties of Fish oil in the drug store, I’ll pick some up.
Is this a good time for yoghurt? Vit C any use?August 6, 2008 at 1:55 pm #82810SweetypyeMember
Vitamin C is a natural anti histamine so may help.
If you are choosing a FBO make sure it states the EPA and DHA content and feed with Vitamin E preferably natural not synthetic. Costs more but is more available to dog.
Probiotics will help if the dog has any yeast overgrowthsAugust 6, 2008 at 8:00 pm #82811SuzAndTheDivaMember
so glad shes feeling a bit better Nick :-*August 11, 2008 at 1:46 pm #82812
quick update; we’re definitely winning the battle at the moment, skin is clearing up nicely, just some slight pinkness left and a bit of dead skin flaking off..energy is good, appetite good, stool slightly soft but good, hair starting to grow back
thanks everyone for their well wishes :-*August 11, 2008 at 1:50 pm #82813*Lassie*Member
That’s good news Nick ;D
