    The molasses will be easy and has tons of other benefits to it. I even read it can help get rid of gray hair! lol
    Hmmm maybe you can test that statement and let us know...could save a fortune in hair dye

    Parsley has about twice the amount of iron and it has no oxalates, if you can make her eat it. I think liver is liver and in raw feeding organs are given about once/twice a week and in the beginning very small amounts.

    she gets a little parsley mixed into her mash. The problem is she can't have to much. Parsley is also a diuretic, that's the last thing you want to give an animal in kidney failure. It's a shame to, she loves it.

    How small is a small amount? Like half an ounce?

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

    Every time I see an Abby thread, my heart is in my throat while I read ....this one was certainly no exception! She's a miracle baby. God Bless those vets and their desire to help you and she at whatever cost. They are watching a miracle happen and yes, that's worth the price of admission for THEM!

    So happy the vets are helping, they are very good there! But I think she is thriving bc of you! I am so thinking different after meeting the other dog with the same medical concern! Abby is a miriacle and she is sassy, fearless, caring, loving and u get the point! Keep doing exactly what your doing bc you are a good mama to her!
