Hey! Have any of you given your dog milk thistle for a week following Heartworm medication? I heard that it is good for helping to detox chemicals from the liver.
Thank you so much for all of your advice! I actually volunteer at a local vet clinic and they have had 2 patients diagnosed with Heartworm this year. Considering this, I think that I will continue to use the HeartGard Plus. Thanks for all your help!
Thank you so much for all of your help and all of the links! I agree that it is best to protect from Heartworm conventionally. Would u guys recommend HeartGard Plus or just HeartGard?
Hi Cathy, thanks so much for sending me Dr. Harvey’s book too! I’m going to have a LOT of reading to do!
Hi Jessica W,
I do use a little bit of fish oil with my dog, but also coconut oil. The coconut oil is really good for their coat and skin.
Thank you for telling me about your good experience with balanceit. I will check it out online!
Thank you for giving me your opinion about the Hillary’s Blend products. I really appreciate all of your help, Aimee.
Have you heard of the Hilary’s Blend supplement and cookbook? If so, what do you think about it? Is it comparable with the balance it supplements and recipes?
She was recently checked out by her vet and everything is good with her health.
If you think that supplements are scams what do you recommend to make sure that she gets all the vitamins and minerals that she needs when being fed a homemade diet?
She won’t eat kibble, and I like making her food at home, but I need o make sure that she gets everything she needs.
I went to a local petstore yesterday that specializes in natural pet nutrition, they told that the below plan would work good. What do you think?
MAIN MEALS: Homemade food (rotating veggies and meat for variety), also including some egg.
PROBIOTIC: Daisy’s Mega 8 Probiotic Flora (this is all natural)
TREATS: Give 1-2 raw bones per week to clean teeth and as a calcium source.
The lady at the petstore said that she will get all the vitamins she needs from veggies. She was sure that the raw bones would provide enough calcium.
Thank you so much for the idea to check a local library, Susan! I will do that and see if they could get it in for me.
Jo R, that book sounds really interesting by Dr. Donald Strombeck… I will see if I can find it online!
Also, I will check out the video by Rodney Habib, pugmomsandy.
Hi Susan, my dog is about 16 pounds. The recipes that I use include cod liver oil and safflower oil, so do you think that I should add a sardine in addition to those?
What do you recommend for adding calcium? I’ve heard that a lot of people use eggshells or bonemeal for calcium, but I don’t know how much to add.
I will check out balanceit dot com, Aimee. Thanks for the recommendation!
