Have you joined the k9kidneydiet yahoo group? They may have some recommendations for inflammation. There is also k9kidney yahoo group but I don't check there as often.

Also, Mary Strauss at dogaware.com was extremely helpful to me.

No, there's nothing to be done there at this point, there is not much flexibility in her diet, we just have to get this infection and inflammation under control, so I will focus on that.

Check it out, not necessarily for diet changes, but they have good info on supplements for UTIs and inflammation.

Hi Lisa....dont quite have my head around the latest Miss Jazz results, but I understand high Ph levels, consideration around urinary, kidney issues and getting the PH balance right and crystals....have I got that right??..

If so for PH related matters...suggest you have a look at this.... I have used it numerous times in dogs, for Kobe and also for my other boy Reza, who has severe digestive issues from a snake bite and the anti venom treatment.

http://www.sanum.com/product_info.php?products_id=34&cPath=22&language=en

And although it could be In here somewhere...also wondering what Jazzs blood sugar results are?

Thanks m&j, will have to find my way to that list. I'm on the kidney group from Long ago. I was hoping to find some alternatives on the IBD lists. They did remind me about the boswellia, which is supposed to be particularly good for ibd.

Marie, that supplement looks like it will primarily alkalize?

Lisa,

I have a lot of problems with inflammation and acupunture and acupressure have been so helpful for me...just a thought!

Yes that's right Lisa.

For Reza, it is the primary supplement that underpins everything else I give him...keeping his system alkalized helps with his appetite (lack of), ability to maintain weight, nausea and vomiting. It would seem his system has become far to acidic since the bite and if I don't use the Alkala as the base from which I work, then everything else falls apart.

It's my understanding (and I'm far far far from being any kind of expert), but getting acidity under control helps in dogs with digestive issues...IBD, malabsorption etc.

Edited to add...even the digestive enzymes I give him, don't seem to be as effective without using the Alkala.
