There are no clinical signs of Cushing's (water intake, frequent urination, hair loss) and this dog has had high akph readings often throughout his life and has never had clinical signs of Cushing's. He has had ultrasounds several times too and no liver abnormalities, yet we have him on Sam-e/Denamarin for liver support during chemo. He is not receiving preg since early July and none of the other drugs you mentioned. We are giving him 1 gram of Sucralfate twice a day, an hour before meals along with 10mg of Pepcid AC and 100mg of Tramadol with his meals.
His AKPh reading was 1,000 last week and 1,400 this week. He is in remission from the Lymphoma (diagnosed in late June) and his appetite is less, but still good (he used to be a dog that would eat dirt, grass, trash or anything he could his mouth around.
Is there something missing from his diet we could add? Could the antibiotics (Baytril, Ampocillan) be having an effect, or are they helping?
Is there some food or holistic approach we can try? Would vitamin B-12 or C or fish oil or SeaCure, or . . . . help?
If we fed him filet mignon, yams, spinach, carrots, squash, salmon, lamb, brown rice, oats, polenta, sushi, turkey necks etc help?
We still have a couple bags of the subQ left, but he is drinking water now . . . should we buy electrolytes for his water? We really want to DO something to help support his immune system. Have you heard about a doctor in Florida that analyzes blood samples and prepares immune support injections that seem to be working to support the immune system?
What can we do?
