Thank you very much for your reply.
Buxton does not have an issue with fleas but ticks are a BIG problem. His numbers have been very high (10,676) on the Multiplex test. Thankfully he hasn’t shown any disease. I had Lyme disease myself last October probably from a tick off...
Has anyone heard of or used the BioPower Pet Shield for ticks? It’s a tag that has to be worn all the time.

Is anyone familiar with Leela Quantum Tech? They have dog and cat collars and I wonder if they could be helpful?
below is their description of the collars:
Quantum energy is one of the most fascinating transformation tools of our time, and its positive effects can not only...
Dr. Jeff, Thank you for your reply.
X-rays were not taken. She diagnosed the arthritis by exam. Do you think x-rays would be important?
Buxton had CBC, chemistry and UA in April and the vet didn't note anything of concern. He had VDI testing done in June and B12 and magnesium were low normal...
During last night's webinar I talked about Buxton's panting and there were several suggestions. Thank you @Dr. Christina for offering to post them here.
Buxton is an 8 yo Bernese Mountain Dog. He has been holistically raised since he was born and I have had appointments with @Dr. Jeff too...
I had testing done at VDI for Buxton and his magnesium and B12 were both low normal and supplementation was recommended. They recommended their topical lotion magnesium-lotion-for-pets . Has anyone used that product? Do you recommend lotion or trying to add pumpkin seeds or chia seeds or more...
Bea is almost 11 months old and not spayed. She started her heat March 2nd.
Buxton’s BEAM is worse today. I gave the Puls yesterday.
How long should I fast him?
I took him in for a weight check yesterday and he lost 2 pounds since April 28. is that a concern?
Buxton had a very stressful weekend and went off his food and still is not eating and not interested in his usual activities. My kids were here for the weekend so our routine wasn’t the same but to make it worse Buxton quickly told us my daughter’s female dog, Bea, had something going on. Buxton...
Thanks for your comments I do pause the joint supplements occasionally to make sure I’m not covering an issue that needs to be addressed. I switch off vitamin and mineral products between Dobias and Cornucopia. I make my own bone broth because I have access to local organic beef, pork and...
When giving a supplement for joint support is it helpful to switch products periodically? Maybe give Super Snouts for a month and then Green Eggs for a month or switch at the end of the container? This is for a BMD that has been on joint supplements since he was young maybe ~1 yo and he is...
My dog also likes to be cooler. Fortunately I like it cooler too so in warm weather the AC helps as well as ceiling fans. Buxton moves from tile to linoleum and lays in a Sphinx position so his belly is cooler. I have a cool coat that works well for walks in the summer.
Thank you Dr. Jeff,
I did look at Fleasgone at one point and decided against that approach. I will check it out again.
I appreciate your support and glad we were able to talk yesterday. Hope we can get Buxton comfortable soon and continue to work on rebalancing him with homeopathy.
Thank you Dr. Sara,
Buxton is cooperative with bathing but repeated bathing would be difficult for me to do. The temps here are cold to bathe outside (32 degrees this morning). with his heavy coat and if I have to let it dry that makes it more difficult. I don’t know if self serve dog washes...
Buxton has been itching the past month or so. Initially I thought maybe it was environmental allergies though he hasn’t had a problem in the past. He has gotten progressively worse especially the past few days. I took him to the vet and he has sarcoptic mange. The vet suggested Revolution or...
