    Hi @Dr. Jeff I know it has been awhile - we have been really going through some stuff this summer and Xander seemed to be doing well. We have been working with Dr. Harmon, which has been great, but I believe there are some obstacles to curing him pertaining to our home - another chat for...

    GSD still battling persistent yeast and ear infections

    My 2YO male GSD, Xander is reaching a breaking point. We got his results back from AnimalBiome. Fortunately no pathogenic bacteria, just poor diversity and low populations of anti-inflammatory microbes. Since I do a lot of GI health in my own practice, I worked him up to find suitable means...

    What to do About a Seizure in a 3yo female German Shepherd Dog

    Hi! My female, Brynn, experienced a seizure this evening. She was in the other room at which we suddenly heard knocking and banging, only to find her experiencing a tonic clonic episode.

    Dog Eye Discharge

    Hi! So my almost 2yo male GSD, Xander - ever the focus of my concerns :/ - started getting some slow green/yellow discharge from the inner canthus of his right eye yesterday. He occasionally (1x/week maybe?) has morning eye goop that is white or clear and it goes away when I wipe it. I noticed...

    Herniated Umbilicus Puppy

    My 13 week old puppy seems to have been the only one in her litter with one of these. My male - her sire - has one, too, that has never been problematic for him or has grown in size. However, I noticed that the puppy's seems to have gotten a little bigger. No issues eating, pooping and no...

    Vomitting Puppy

    Hey everybody - while it appears my 10.5-week old puppies have managed to transition to their new homes beautifully, it seems as though one has fallen sick as of today. According to her human, she tried a bully stick today (one that was not made in the USA) and also ate some garbage that had...

    Puppy pyoderma?

    My almost 10-week old litter of puppies is ready to go to their homes tomorrow; however, one of them has little pimples on her groin and some inguinal LAO. After some searching I deduced it was likely pyoderma, so I put some coconut oil on there, and while the pimples seem to have abated, she...

    Holistic Vet in Fairfield County, CT

    Hi and thank you in advance! Any suggestions would be great - also, do you know if these particular vets are allowing owners in with their pets? This has been a huge deterrent to bringing my pets in for any concerns. Lyndsey
