Lisa, absolutely had Bentley on a probiotic while on the doxy. Don't have it in front of me but is one recommended by the holistic vet. We saw a HUGE improvement with his poop after he finished the doxy.

The Holistic vet also has us giving him Standard Process Allerplex for lung/upper respiratory support. She didn't want to have him on too many supplements yet but we will be revisiting some heart support. Bentley is not ready to be still enough for acupuncture yet. He was barely willing to be still enough for a chiro adjustment. She was able to adjustment him prior to his first shot and another three days before his 2nd and 3rd shots. His spine has a bit of a roller coaster look to it so once we hit the 4 week post injection mark, I'm hoping she can do more work on him.

When max came here way back when, he could barely stand on all fours. Chiro and a bit of acupuncture worked wonders for him. Our chiro and I were pretty annoyed we didn't take before and after pics, but sounds like he is in the best of hands. I hope all is still going well.

Love the Allerplex. I use it here for my allergies :-)

We have an appointment Saturday for the next round of chiro and to see if Bentley will allow the vet to stick some needles in him for a little acupuncture. The boy is definitely feeling better everyday and his energy has returned in full force. We have our 30 day post injection appt. with a new vet on Monday. We are changing vets with Bentley only because we are now an hour away from our old vet and he's reduced his hours with the large practice to only Tuesday nights an maybe a Friday night once a month. I wanted a vet closer to us as a "just in case". We had been referred to the dental vet at this practice by my old vet when Phoenix broke a tooth. I really liked the folks we met at this practice back then, so I feel comfortable with the switch. Bonus is that my holistic vet has other animals she sees going to this practice and finds the other vets to be very on board with working her.

Unfortunately, I lost another two drag leashes to the chew monster. headbang Good thing we are nearing the end of the "quiet period."

Oh, and I also found the key to getting Bentley to eat...I added some chicken and bone broth. groovy

Sounds like things may be coming together - hope you don't lose anymore leashes!

I have always believed that a lot picky eaters are that way because of food issues, which could be very minor. Glad you figured out the chicken and bone broth. I am a huge fan of giving dogs bone broth!
