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.

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.

Thanks Marie.

I can't make her system more alkaline, her infection already creates an alkaline environment, which creates crystals in the urine, so I have to keep her acidic, and hope that the antibiotics take care of the infection.

I'm not sure we have the right antibiotic though, I guess we'll see when we retest her. I need to contact the vet next week and see when that will be.

Ruth, thanks.

I am surprised the holistic vet hasn't talked about acupuncture, but I really think that she doesn't appreciate the full significance of what is going on. I seem to have a dog that is too healthy to be sick! I think this would be a good avenue to pursue though, might see what the homeopathic vet says first.

Huh thinking

I was looking at colostrum, and it turns out that human babies have a lower risk of inguinal hernia if they are breast fed: http://www.jpeds.com/article/S0022-3476%2895%2970268-7/abstract
