We're very glad to hear from you too ( big smiles). You've saved me so much money and grief over the years (Mommas is probably 9, maybe 8). The last 2 Vets I used wanted to charge over $600 for things you correctly diagnosed and fixed. First I'd like to follow up on the shedding problem. The furminator works great, but instead of once every 2 days, I've been using it twice a day and a great amount of hair comes off each time. I have to also use one of the roller hair removers for her belly, but it also picks up20-40 hairs from her neck and back AFTER i've used the furminator carefully. I hope this is her coat shedding season, 'cause even with all the brushing and rolling, there is a still a lot of hair, very small and hard to see. I ordered the Vitacoat, but they recommend 12 a day for the first 4-6 weeks, and my finances are still terrible. Furthermore, she won't chew it and even when I break them up into small pieces and put it into her dried food (which looks similar), she often won't eat it. I don't give her canned food
, so I can't break it up finely. She wouldn't even eat the pieces in chicken
soup broth. The Omega-3
capsules that I take daily are far far cheaper (and smaller). That seems to be the main ingredient, along with flaxseed oil . I take flaxseed my self in the tiny seeds. Maybe I could get her to take that too. Derm... that you recommended seem even more expensive. Btw, her paw licking
is almost completely gone. We worked on that a lot. Another success for you!! Thanks much much. Btw, good chance I will become parenting expert (I'm a kinda famous one). I already was approved, but since my doing it takes at least 15 minutes, the current rate was much too low. But now I see experts can be paid more, and I'd like to hear your experience with that.
