We fed Tender and True Rice and Chicken or Rice and Turkey until they hit one year and we switched to raw.
I’ve been feeding Titan for 4 months. My dogs are thriving and its way more affordable than when I was preparing homemade raw/cooked. Eggs add fatty acids. Fish is a source of natural vitamin D and omega 3. Wheat germ oil adds vitamin E and omegas. If you are feeding raw without supplementation your foods will typically be low on iodine, vitamin d, magnesium, manganese and vitamin E. That is why dog food manufacturers supplement.
Hi Acroyali! Thanks for the supportive response. It’s no problem. I respect everyone’s opinion and their willingness to share it. My biggest concern is the welfare of the pup and doing what I can to share information that may help the family.
Hi MJ E! It occurred to me to suggest that you setup a YouCaring, crowd fund for Mr. Basset Mix. Not GoFundMe. They take too much. I’m part of a few FB groups that support each other through crowd funding when members’ dogs become sick. They are unfortunately breed specific, but I’m sure there’s a basset hound group. I hope this can offset your cost and maybe you can do a consult with Smith Ridge if you so choose.

I wish you the best MJ and look forward to hearing about the progress of your pup. I hope you have more information than you came here with so you can make your own mind up on what’s best for your pup.
Thank you for that very enlightening information. However, where science fails, which is the case in this circumstance, the natural path can sometimes succeed. I discovered Bach and homeopathy when my cat was given a death sentence due to FIP. Our homeopath did help a few cats recover from the disease where vets would give up. When the vet couldn’t figure out how to rid my cat of her wheezing after 3 yrs I finally got with the same homeopath for a consult and she rid her of her condition. Furthermore, as far as I can tell MJ is already doing everything conventionally possible to find a cure for their pet to no avail. I agree there are a lot of frauds out there so caution is advisable. I don’t advocate against science. We have a wonderful team of Vets which we love that cares for our 6 animal companions. However, I think its worth considering alternative healing in this case.

You can also try Bach Remedies, their rescue remedy works well, and aloe juice in a pump spray dispenser to alleviate irritation.
Here’s another resource for discovering your dog’s food allergies. Nutriscan is available through hemopet.org.
Half full glass jar of water. sry
I’m not sure how much you pay for your kefir but I ordered my grains from Amazon – vendor Fusion Tea and ferment it with Costco’s organic milk. I’ve got the system down where one nickel sized grain makes 16 oz of kefir a day. Have you tried CDB for dogs? Bleach almost killed my friends dog. The buildup on the floor was getting on her feet/fur and she consumed it while grooming. Life’s abundance sells pet safe bio cleaner and this deodorizer which get rid of the most noxious pet smells. My friend’s dog had bad skin allergies so I bought almond oil for her. It helped sooth the sores. You can also get homepathic remedies at Vitamin Shoppe and Whole Foods until u find a homepath that can provide a remedy specific to ur dog. The labels indicate what symptom it will help cure. Don’t give in pill form. Put one tab in a half full glass jar. Let dissolve. Smack on a phone book. I use my stairs. 😁 100 times for the 1st time and 10 times before each dose. That’s called succussion. Its a method of dilution and increasing potency. Let him drink a dose, u don’t have to be specific, a few times a day and see which helps. They’re relatively inexpensive. I’m so glad that pup has you!
I’m no doctor but that sounds like an auto-immune disorder. I got with a pet homepath to help my cat recover from chronic wheezing. Our healer passed away sadly but I learned a lot about how to support our pets immune system. Maybe you can find one for a consult. Have you tried home cooked meals, removing toxins from the house, switching to stainless bowls, feeding home grown probiotics like milk kefir, try turmeric & pepper, goat milk from primal? My dogs don’t do well on grain free but we feed Tender and True and they do great but I cook for them too.
Here’s the instruction that I use. https://www.mamanatural.com/how-to-make-eggshell-calcium/
In a nutshell:
Step 1: wash the egg shells
Step 2: boil submerged in water for 10 minutes
Step 3: dry on a sheet or in the oven 200 degree for 10 minutes or until they are dry.
Step 4: grind to powder using a coffee grinder
1 tsp. contains approximately 800-1,000 mg. of calcium
Note: make sure the membrane is popped or else those shells will float out of the water.
