Surely hope this works for both of you. And since you brought up fear, I'm heading for the Whole Foods to buy aduki beans and kumbu. Very healing for the kidneys. I used to follow the Macro diet. I've been feeling very fearful since I lost my job a year ago and feel stuck. Thanks Lisa for all this info. Look forward to your posts regarding your progress.

Sorry to disappear, wanted to wait until I got to the laptop and could also get the names of the herbs.

Jazz met a lot of dogs when we went walking by the Bay. Unfortunately, about 4 dogs took too much of an interest in her. I was able to walk into one and just told him that this wasn't going to happen today, and he lowered his head and walked away. The young GSD mix wasn't so accommodating, but his owner was on top of things - Jazz screamed just before he touched her and that got everyone's attention. The two that she had an altercation - one was at the beginning of the walk and the other at the end.

The first one was some kind of boxer or dane mix, tall, lanky, young, kept keying off Jazz and coming close, and I kept walking in between them trying to get him away. His idiot owners wouldn't get off the phone. Just as I went to pick her up, she darted away, I turned, and he had rolled her, she was vocalizing in fear or pain, and they were still on their frickin' phones. I told them it would help if they got off their phones, and they just laughed. We ran into them a couple of times, and they just laughed at jazz and let their dog taunt her. I just rolled my eyes and called them idiots and got her out of there.

The second one was a dog not much taller than her, but buff, some kind of staffy terrior pitty mix (I don't know my breeds). They were frozen right next to each other, and I knew as soon as I moved something would happen, and sure enough, he aggressed (is that a word?), and I got in between them and yelled off the dog as the owner, who was quite some distance, called the dog. At least they weren't idiots.

So, she didn't have a great time, though she played with some smaller dogs, but was tired and sore, and had some scuff marks on her belly, which calendula/hypericum creme took care of. I kept her home from daycare on Friday, just wanted to let her sleep it off.

Not completely sure she was relatively unscathed, made a chiro appt for Tuesday frown

But overall, she is okay.

Ruth, Jazz had that vibrating thing too, to some degree. She had that when I first got her, but I used my red light acupuncture thing and a few chiro appts and most of it went away. But very few things can get the depth of the acu needles, and it does help to have a vet that knows exactly where to put them!!

She's been prescribed two herbals that I presume are chinese formulations:
Shu Gan Formula - Extra Concentrate, as her main herbal, and
Intestinal Fungus Formula - Extra Concentrate, which will be cooling. Since she responds to abx, which are cooling, she should respond to the IFF, but cooling will either make things move to fast or be constipating (probably the latter, can't remember which), so things may get a bit worse while she is getting better.

Maybe once we get her a bit more stabilized, I might be able to introduce more things into her diet.

Wow, Lisa what a day for you two. There are so many irresponsible owners out and being on the phone makes a loud statement to me that they really don't care about their dogs. If they cared, they would take that time and devote it to actually spend with their dogs. It's so sad.

I hope these herbs will help Jazzy.

Wishing you two a nice weekend.

I am amazed at those of you that know what each needle does. I just turn mine over to the vet, she does the chiro adjustments, sticks the needles in, lets them sit and we chat. The dogs get loaded in the car afterward for the ride home. The late Barker the Elder loved her treatments and the chiro had immediate effects for her mobility and comfort.

I'm sorry your walk went the wrong way. It brings to mind my thoughts of carrying a paintball gun for loose dogs. Fortunately, we've been lucky lately.

Thanks - good thing is that right now Jazz seems pretty resilient, but she sure is getting dog wary frown With Indy, dogs left her alone for the most part. With Max, I had to watch out for him most of the time, and now, Jazz seems to be a target and brings attention from other dogs. This situation is definitely the scariest, trying to maintain balance, so I don't feed that fear, yet I keep her safe.

middle, I haven't really a clue what each needle means - I know a bit, but not much at all. Just, like you, very glad to bring them home and let them continue to soak in the good feelings.

Okay, so Jazz had her acupuncture on thursday, and we had a really long day. She slept A LOT after that, and was sleeping before that too, I've been pretty concerned.

Seems like she decided to wake up about 11pm on Saturday night, and wanted to play. Even slept downstairs?????? Today, very playful.

Seems like she has been unblocked? Either that, or it was something dietary. I guess we'll find out.....

Oh, I guess this is the vet's short description of the class: http://www.healingpetsnaturally.com/psychomotor-therapy/

Lisa, it could be that the acupuncture released some toxins and her body was probably processing it. If she is back to her regular energy level today, then that is probably what it was.

I'm thinking that's exactly what it was Elvi. I'm looking forward to getting her completely well!

Yes, we all do. We are standing with you Lisa. May not have as extensive knowledge regarding medical issues, etc but you two are constantly on my mind for a turn-around and and end to this ridiculous misery.

"ridiculous mystery" is a great description - thank you for the support!

One other thing the vet said about her increased symptoms lately, is that when she was first adopted, she was not as healthy as she is now, overall. Since her body is stronger, she is more able to express more symptoms. Thought that was an interesting comment.

Not sure that makes sense but that may just be me. Definitely interesting.

I think it's along the lines of a healing crisis, but maybe a slight bit different. As the body gets stronger, it gets better able to address chronic disease. I don't have enough experience in with that, but I know that this vet does, so I guess I'll go with it smile
