To prevent skin allergies from occurring, it is necessary to get rid of all the irritants from your home. This means regular housekeeping by dusting, mopping, throwing out the trash and washing pet’s bedding. Pet care must always be done each day and your pet’s nutrition must always be maintained to strengthen its immune system and make it’s coat shine. Applying professional pest control treatments in your home is also better than applying over the counter treatments as they often contain harsh chemicals that can cause skin irritation.

Treatment: If a pancreatic or liver tumor is identified and able to be surgically excised, the skin lesions may normalize for an extended period of time, but because these tumors metastasize (spread to other areas of the body) quickly, surgery is not curative. In cases of end stage liver disease, surgery is not possible, and the goal of therapy is to increase quality of life and decrease uncomfortable skin lesions with supportive care and addressing the nutritional abnormalities. Supportive care includes supplementing protein and necessary minerals and enzymes through the diet and oral supplements or by weekly intravenous amino acid infusions that are performed in the hospital on an outpatient basis until improvement in the skin is noted. Unfortunately, despite the supportive care, the disease will progress.

Barb, your comment was what I was looking for. I use turmeric for myself daily and know about the necessity of using it with black pepper. I was worried about whether it would be safe to give my 15 year old Chihuahua some turmeric and if so, whether or not to add the pepper. She has a serious case of congestive heart failure, and water is constantly building up in her. She often has to have injections of Lasix to eliminate it. Even though she’s on 4 pharmaceutical drugs twice a day, fluid still builds up. I’m hoping that the turmeric helps. Thanks again.

My dog has been on Prednisone for GME since last July.  I am worried now that he's showing signs of Cushing's disease.  His prescribed dose has gone up and down and they have even added Cyclosporine with no visible benefit.  He's gotten Cytarabine shots every 6 weeks as well.  I'm determined to find alternative therapy because he can't be on prednisone for the rest of his life.  When we recently brought him in for a digestive problem, they thought his GME had progressed and basically gave us pain meds to keep him comfortable until we were ready to put him down.  They thought he was at death's door.  Well, since he's been home, he's better but I want more.  I'm looking into herbal medicine and acupuncture because I don't believe this is the best quality of life he's going to have.  I believe he's at the point where the Pred is hurting more than helping and there must be alternatives.

Our Boxer will soon be 14, she has lost her hearing, we have a younger dog she used to play with a lot & that is a rare sight now. She is drinking tons of water, I hear her drinking all through the night which leads me to believe she has diabetes. She having a lot of accident mostly peeing before I wake up. She is getting very unstable on her legs and she often will go in another room away from our younger dog that has been her buddy for 6 years now. I am disabled so the money it tight with all my doctor, Dentist & Eye surgeon. It is really breaking my heart that I cannot afford a lot of Vet bills also but I am really having a rough time with the idea of making that final decision to have her put down. I’ve never had to put a dog down before, the few I’ve had have went on their own. My husband started last night putting their water up on the counter which worries me because if she didn’t need all the water she’s drinking she wouldn’t be drinking it. I just need to know what anyone else would do? She’s made it past the normal lifespan of a Boxer but I am really stuggling here making the decision that’s it her time to go.
