    In addition to getting my dog off grain-free food and back on a limited grain food (but one that is also free of flaxseed), and still very skeptical about anything saving him, this product saved my dog’s life: PetAlive Cushex Drops-S. His weight normalized, scabby skin lesions went away, his panting and heavy drooling stopped, his energy increased, thirst normalized, and his anxiety levels fell. It took about 3 months to really improve things and as long as I keep him on it, he is fine. This, after I had nearly given up on him.

    It’s a 100% herbal formula containing the following ingredients in therapeutic dosage:
    Certified Organic Dandelion Leaf and Root, well-known as a supporter for the liver, kidneys, and adrenal glands and helps to support normal adrenal functioning. Dandelion also contains vitamins and minerals important for hair health and growth and has been studied for its antioxidant activities (Hu, C. and Kitts, D. D. “Antioxidant, prooxidant, and cytotoxic activities of solvent-fractionated dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) flower extracts in vitro.” J Agric. Food Chem. 1-1-2003; 51(1):301-310).
    Certified Organic Burdock Root, cleansing and eliminating herb that cleanses tissues and supports waste removal from the body (Shimizu, J., Yamada, N., Nakamura, K., Takita, T., and Innami, S. “Effects of different types of dietary fiber preparations isolated from bamboo shoots, edible burdock, apple and corn on fecal steroid profiles of rats.” J Nutr Sci Vitaminol. (Tokyo) 1996; 42(6):527-539). Burdock is also traditionally recommended for maintaining blood sugar levels already within the normal range and has been investigated for its ability to support health.
    Certified Organic Astragalus Root, an herb that has been used for many centuries as a revitalizing herb. Astragalus is known as an adaptogen and helps to support balance in the adrenal glands, maintain healthy adrenal cortical function, and supports blood pressure and blood sugar levels already within the normal range. Recent research confirms the positive effect of Astragalus in supporting the immune system.
    Certified Organic Licorice Root has a long history of being used to help with cortisol levels and for its liver-protecting and immune balancing effects.
    Certified Organic Eleuthero Root is commonly just referred to as ‘Eleuthero’ and is highly respected and prized as a natural energy tonic to support energy, circulation, and natural vitality and to act as an overall systemic supporter. Eleuthero is comparable to Ginseng and is an excellent supportive tonic for healthy adrenal hormones. It has also been shown to have anti-stress, anti-inflammatory and liver-protecting properties.
    Inactive ingredients: Vegetable Glycerin, Deionized Water

    All I know is it can make dogs very sick. I know a lot about nutrition (a journalist who has covered the topic for several decades) and I know how to do wash outs to find out what foods you or your dog may be allergic too. It’s fairly simple with dogs. It has taken my dog more than a month to return to his peak health and he’s still not even close.
