Hello this is Dr. Holloway but you can call me Dr. H for short.

I am so very sorry to hear your pet is in critical condition. Evan's syndrome can be a serious condition and require extensive treatment to stabilize pets.

I can look up the name of the natural remedy you have there to see if there are any implications for dogs. Do you have the name of the pill? Also where did you get the all natural medication from?

There are a lot of Chinese herbal medicines that are implicated for Evan's syndrome. However, there are varying results with these and a lot are not readily available in stores. But if you have the name of your natural remedy I will be happy to see if it is one listed in my references. - Dr. H
