Re: Grain free

The link to the cardio group on facebook is very informative and I do belong to that group. However they advise getting off of grain free food and this group advises to stay on it. Confuses a person even more. I'm still reading through the UNITS and am shocked at how many dogs have gotten sick with...

Jean: Looks like I can get the Sudocrem here also...thanks :) Jill: Nikki was taking Apoquel too as needed for her allergies and tolerates it well. Better than the Pred long term, the side effects are not pleasant :) Fingers crossed that this will keep the fistulas in remission, if not she is going ...

Re: My Nikki :(

Madelon: Just now saw your post, so glad the Tacrolimus worked for your boy. Nikki is still on the Prednisone, Tacrolimus, MotaZol until her 2nd re-check on 1 Oct. Her vet mentioned putting her on Apoquel after she finished with the Pred, I'll find out more at her next appointment. So far she is doi...

Re: Grain free

Nikki eats Royal Canin Duck & Potato right now. Before that she ate a home cooked, grain-free diet for six years formulated by Monica Segal, that included supplementing with Taurine among other vitamins/minerals. The brand I use is "Pure Encapsulations" and a local pharmacy orders it for me. https:/...

Re: My Nikki :(

Barb: Nikki is eating the canned RC Duck & Potato, she won't even touch the kibble. I really feel she just associates food with not feeling well & pain after all the stomach issues she's had. We have tried so many different things and none of them really worked: Parmesan cheese, tripe, feeding her ...
