Just wondering if it might be an idea to help Phoebe and Gypsy.
Phoebe is suffering with her allergies. I believe that if you can help the inside it can often help on the outside and wondering if by helping gut health it might help her allergies!
Gypsy and her pancreatitis means her digestive system needs as much support as I can offer her. At the moment we use Lypex that helps with digestive enzymes but nothing to help with generalized gut health.
My only worry is it is a yeast based product and so wondering if in regards to allergies it might be counterproductive.
I haven’t seen that one, and I spent ages looking at all the different digestive supplements when I was looking at one for Alfie! It looks good but probably a no-go for Alfie as it’s yeast based (?) and he gets yeasty paws & skin - that might be something to consider if yeast ever plays a part in your girls allergies?
I am using Optidigest from Zooplus with each meal and it’s done wonders for Alfie’s digestion (he was often quite soft on the new food, high veg content!) and then he gets Dorwest tree barks powder before bed as that’s meant to be good for the digestive system too and preventing nausea which KD dogs can be prone to.
I would be interested in what it’s like if you do try it.
HI ... as you may or may not remember my Candy had all sorts of allergies.. i went to a homeopathic vet.. she drug free now... But if she get the odd smelly ear or slight soft poo i start giving her probiotic everyday.. then i go back to giving probiotic 3/4 times a week... i found it stops everything getting worse.. keeps her gut in balance and healthy... ... ..... A family member phoned a Homeopathic vet they was happy to chat to her over phone and send her the right probiotic for her dog.. theres so many out there hard to know what to buy ... hopefully you have got one by now... and your seeing a improvement... ... i have with Candy.... x

caz2golden: Sorry not on much my PC is sending me around the bend every time I use mouse it double clicks when I only single clicked! Part of me is hoping it is a windows issue that will get updated rather than just PC getting old and broken!

alfiemummy: It's most likely your mouse that needs replacing Caz - that's happened to me twice now and both times it's been fixed by getting a new mouse

tonib: Sounds like it was a good job we didn't have Roman as a kitten then. He's never misbehaved like that, only his first Xmas with us when he half-inched the stuffing! - I hope that's not famous last words!

tonib: Lexie is another matter but usually not breakables - except potentially of herself when she fell behind the large display cabinet/sideboard on being left alone for the 1st time in our dining room aged 2.5 years!!!

tonib: She jumped on top (via the table I believe) & managed to fall between it & the wall & appeared to be suspended by her head part way down (the gap narrowed!) I had to get a burly neighbour in to help move it, quickly moving weight/breakables as pos. 1st

tonib: She was fine but got checked by vet just in case! That was a heart stopping time, especially her cries!

lotsofcats: I can remember when that happened with Lexi.
