    Diet reversed kidney disease

    I told Dr. Jeff this story of my friend's Corgi (named Didi), and he asked me to post about it as an example of diet providing an upgrade in vitality. Didi ate a kibble diet, and at some point as an adult became very ill, and the diagnosis was severe kidney failure. The vets said there was...

    Caring for hypoglycemic dog with insulinoma?

    Thanks, Dr. Jeff. I got more information from my friend. His BEAM is fairly normal right now if he's managed. Appetite of course is ravenous- he has always been a really good eater, but with the pred that is even more pronounced. A persistent symptom seems to be some rear end weakness (even...

    Caring for hypoglycemic dog with insulinoma?

    Rockie is one of my pups who lives with a good friend. He is 10.5 years old. He was having exercise-induced issues such as tremors, rear end weakness, and collapse. He was found to be hypoglycemic with glucose levels down to 40. He was diagnosed with insulinoma (pancreatic cancer) after a...

    Kennel cough help

    Just wanted to give an update about what ended up happening back in October with the kennel cough. (Better late than never!) My 3 dogs did end up getting KC (or something like it). I've listed what happened with each of them. Interestingly, my older girl who I was most worried about, had an...

    Kennel cough help

    After going through the MM, pretty certain Pulsatilla is the one to pack!   It addresses coughing, and "expectoration bland, thick, bitter, greenish".

    Kennel cough help

    Hi there, I feel like I should know this or be able to figure it out, but am going out of town late tomorrow and don't have much time.  Is anyone available to help? I just found out today that one of my dogs has been exposed to kennel cough.  A friend's young dog started coughing today, a...

    Help finding a remedy for my senior dog

    Thanks, Dr. Jeff.  All my go-to stores nearby have recently stopped carrying Boiron 200c potencies (really anything besides 6c and 30c).   It's very disappointing.  Will need to figure out where to get the Silicea. She has been seen at the vet within the last few weeks, and has had bloodwork...

    Help finding a remedy for my senior dog

    Hi there!  I am in need of some advice on next steps. My last update was very positive, but a couple days after that her BEAM and noise triggers got worse again.   I changed the # succussions on the next dose so she got Silica 30c, 15/q-tip on 8/12.   She improved almost immediately and stayed...

    Help finding a remedy for my senior dog

    Just an update.  My girl was dosed with the Silicea 30c 10/q-tip on 8/6, a week after the first dose.  As a reminder her BEAM (energy, mostly) had improved after the first dose but her symptoms were unchanged and still quite bad. After the 8/6 dose, her BEAM remained good-- actually she...

    Chewing on Bones

    I no longer give my raw-fed dogs recreational (weight-bearing) marrow bones after one of my dogs got a couple slab fractures.  Last year I discovered beef knee caps, which so far are wonderful!  My Goldens can chew on those for about 1/2 hour and it is mostly soft bone or cartilage- they either...

    Help finding a remedy for my senior dog

    I gave a dose of Silicea 30c, 10/q-tip on Mon AM, 7/30.  Prior to the dose her BEAM (mostly energy) was not very good, and her symptoms (mostly noise triggers) had been steadily worsening. The day of the dose, she was sleeping very deeply much of the day.  By the next day, her BEAM had improved...

    Help finding a remedy for my senior dog

    Thank you, Dr. Jeff.   Per your suggestion, I've been reading a bunch of MM for Silica and Asarum. There's not that much about Asarum, but the keynote symptom that stands out is "Oversensitiveness of nerves, scratching of linen or silk, crackling of paper is unbearable".  The rest of it about...

    Help finding a remedy for my senior dog

    It has been a while since I've updated, and I'm looking for guidance on what remedy to try next. My girl has been through a lot since the last update, as she had to have a splenectomy.  She had no symptoms, but we agreed with the vet that any mass on the spleen is problematic since even a...
