I'm glad you can understand all that!

Maybe Indy will send Max a squirrel like LJ did with Steel!

Lisa, sending you and Max lots of hugs.

Is it possible some thing in the Cosamine supplement is reacting with other stuff. I know that Lakota couldn't and I know Barb E's Dante can't handle chondroitin. I found a supplement that had no chondroitin. Most chondroitin is Sodium chondroitin Sulfate, not sure if the Sodium part would be good or bad for Max.

So far, Monday and Tuesday, only one bleed, and today none. I think the coconut oil is helping it from splitting, and also helping it heal. I tried vit E and other things before, so interesting that this oil seems to be better. The honey is still a lifesaver.

Val, I had remembered that some dogs didn't do well on chondroitin, but I didn't remember which ones. I did buy some straight glucosamine, and may try that - it could even be the manganese or something like that. It could just all be in my head crazy He's pretty achy, so I hope we get some significant healing soon and I can start adding some of the joint stuff back soon. He is fine with the sodium, in fact, I give him extra, he always seems low as part of his disease process.

I discovered that when he looks like he's looking at bugs, or has this spacey look, I think he is checking to see if there is blood spurting from his nose. What a smart boy - I watch him look, and then he stares carefully, and then when he determines he's okay, goes back to what he was doing. I sure hope that he can drop that behaviour at some point in the future!
