    edit..

    I was just talking to Sandy @cowsmom about this the other day. Don't know why I didn't include it in my original reply. Sorry.

    Zinc is great for skin issues. The regular kind you buy in the grocery/drug store is what you need, nothing fancy or expensive. Start with 500 mg once a day for the first couple days, then up it to 500mg twice a day.
    you know i had actually included that with my reply then removed it as im just learning about it and thought i would leave it to you if it would help here as i did not want to post something that was not true or that i knew for sure.

    and if I wasn't still sick and miserable I'd have said so sooner. No matter what I do I can't kick this cold and fever (and yes, I'm working on my own immune system too )

    For me, her name was Abby

    Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.

    Yup, this is exactly what I thought once I started reading it. But not medallion raw or stuff you buy in a bag that costs an arm and a leg, REAL raw feeding. Stock up at the butchers, buy backs, necks, livers, tripe, all the nasty stuff you just know our bullies will love. I think it's a waste of money to buy prepackaged raw foods since, for me anyway, the whole point of raw is knowing exactly what my dogs are eating and you can't get that if you're buying the prepackaged raw patties. I do the same for my family, too. The only frozen stuff I buy that aren't veggies or diced potatoes (cuz that's such a time saver for me!! I'm a cheater, I know) is lasagna (which hubby has been asking me to make my own now so maybe not anymore) and fish sticks cuz the kids and i love fish sticks! Now for myself, I'll buy the Smart Ones frozen dinners to heat up at work or a bean and cheese burrito but I don't bring it here, it goes straight to the freezer at work. I think it's worth a try, what do you have to lose except for a sick and itchy bully allergies?
