Re: The Next Food Evolution

@Jen - "You asked for a list of trustworthy brands." I hope you do not teach "reading." Where did I ask for a list? My request was for Sabine to reply. "You will not find a friendlier, more generous, flame-free forum on the web" :lol: THE END! Not interested in any of your so called "opinions."

Canine Influenza (dog flu) In mild cases, dogs will show signs of mucous-producing cough, low-grade fever and green nasal discharge. The cough may remain for up to 21 days and doesn't respond to antibiotics. Some dogs may develop a more severe disease with clinical signs of pneumonia, such as a high...

Re: over prescribing antibiotics?

Are you giving probiotics to put the good bacteria back. Did your Vet do a culture to see what antibiotics Roscoe can tolerate, is dosage correct amount? You might want to get another opinion before continuing with this Vet. Are there any holistic Vets in your area?

Re: The Next Food Evolution
