Re: German Shepherd EPI and Seizures

nice ideas Molly a floating ball would also work, and the dog can then duck for it , we never had these issues as the enzymes from the UK dont cause problems a flat glass pie plate dish is good, less space for the muzzle to get into The whole point of the forum is to share ideas BRING IT ON Jeanx

it would likely be useful for grass seed intollerances as they get between the pads

Kai my middle Shepherd had this all of his life we used to wash his paws when he came in from a walk anywhere near grass

he had to take anti histamines all the time we had him, 10 years
