I took Nikki in for her yearly blood work and checkup. She is doing great! All of her blood work is normal, no issues at all! :chili: I guess the home cooking and supplements we are using have worked well for her.

I switched Lady to homecooking and probiotics almost two years ago after three episodes of HGE in four months. She never had another episode after that.

She also had the best bloodwork results she'd had in years after the switch! The "bloodwork of a puppy" is what my vet said about my old girl. I was even able to reverse the liver damage she'd had from years of seizure medications. (She's on a special diet for liver compromised dogs). Her ALT is perfectly normal now.

I'm so glad Lady is doing so well! I give probiotics as well as supplements. Thanks to "YOU" and "MAGGIE" I made the switch after Toby had HGE three times in four months as well. He did have a few throw-ups w/ blood and a few stools w/ small amounts of blood but once his system was detoxed, he hasn't had a problem since! It is amazing how well they recover after being changed to the home cooking. Since I started home cooking for him, I thought I might as well do it for the three girls as well and they are doing great on it.

So in case I didn't say "THANKS"........let me do it now! THANKS for your help Marj when I needed it the most! :):thumbsup:

I'm so glad it worked for Toby, too! HGE is terrifying!

I'm just really glad her ALT number (liver issues) is normal and she doesn't need a dental. If I can keep putting off that dental so she doesn't have to be put under, I'm a happy camper!!!

Wow! Great news. What kind of probiotics do you use? Maybe I need to try that with Tanner.
