No surprise there. Max has just learned that Lisa is intent upon promoting the health of her pets and he is doing what he can to help her. Talk about team work.

What a great boy he is.

best, best,
MJ

Chondroitin gives Dante soft poops, took me awhile to figure out what it was - couldn't find anything on the 'net that said it could do that. Finally found one website that said it, I changed to Synovi-G3 and all fixed.

Max is so smart!

We've had good luck with coconut oil here too. It's the only oil that Steel can tolerate.

We are in a bit of a holding pattern here.

There is some granulation and a bit of scabbing on the nose, so maybe this is a sign of progress. It rained today and he tried to dry his head on my pants, and broke open his nose - ugh, just before we were to get in the car and come home from work. They have been very tolerant of us at work, though I know I am pushing it.

He's achey from taking out the joint supplement, so I picked up some straight glucosamine, and we'll see if that doesn't make the nose bleed more. I received his refill on his adequan, so maybe I'll sneak that in a week early.

I was reading the other board briefly, and someone mentioned that broccoli in large amounts is toxic to dogs. I hadn't heard that before - Max gets a lot of broccoli and cauliflower. Everything in moderation and it should be fine, but I learned that it can be a vasorelaxant, making it harder for him to pump and circulate blood. In a dog that doesn't already have this problem, small amounts shouldn't make a difference, but, well, this is Max! Funny how every time I turn around, I find something that is affecting something else.


I'm not sure how his breathing stuff is doing. I thought it was doing better, but the last couple nights have been tough (the broccoli? We'll see!). I've been reading about endotoxins that these infections produce, and vit C keeps coming up as huge. So the infusions perhaps have been huge for him, more than I realized. I'm working on increasing his oral dose. The cooler weather is so much better for him.

He is trying to be more social at work, but I have to stop him because he sticks his nose everywhere. My poor boy! Sure wish that darn nose would heal faster!
