    Default Billy Update

    Update on Billy.....his face broke out last week, spots red and bald patches...I took him off his kibble and it seemed to start improving. Anyways the other day it happened again, only much worse, his poor little eye was practically swollen shut and all his face is is red raw Chris got him in the vet last night and our poor little soldier has Dermadex Mites...got antibiotics and special wash to apply once a week for 4 weeks. I've gone back to his home cooked diet and am adding supper time snacks of scrambled egg or Pilchards with a good dollop of yoghurt...any other suggestions of immune system boosting foods greatly accepted


    He's also booked in to have Cherry eye surgery on Monday too.....we were hoping he would grow out if it like Lucy did but its just getting worse...Patrick (our vet) is going to remove his 3rd eyelids...he explained that its the best option as tacking in such severe cases as Billy's usually results in it needing to be repeated later on. Apparently the 3rd lid is only responsible for 20% tear production so dry eye is unlikely but easily solved with eye drops.


    He was going to neuter him at the same time but one if Billy's Bon Bons hasn't shown itself yet so the operation will be too big at the moment...we are holding out until 8 months to see if it drops...if not he will have to have the more invasive surgery to retrieve it then.

    Please spare a thought or two for my little man

    Maggie's cancer was linked to her immune system.

    Through research and the advice of our fantastic holistic vet we added the following mix to her Fromm.

    Salmon
    Chopped spinach
    Carrots
    Kidney beans
    Canned beet root
    Flaxseed oil

    It actually tasted pretty good!!!!

    hope you didn't taste it with the Fromm in Karen xx

    does Spinach have Vit C in...I'm looking for a good source of Vit C that won't make him stink...so far I have come up with broccoli and sprouts might just get Vit C supplements.

    "It never rains, but it pours" Poor Mr. Billy..He's at that age where these things raise their ugly head.... At six months Dublin seemed to get everything all at once. Demodex, allergies, and breathing issues... He is in very good hands so . keep us posted.

    Our vet laughed and asked if Billy was reading through the Standard Book of Bulldog Ailments.

    I was going to say beans, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower and carrots myself, looks like you got it covered. I also give a Nuvet while home cooking. I also do eggs and yogurt added here and there and salmon oil.

    We have never had mange so I am no help there .

    Poor Billy can't catch a break! Sounds like his cherry is not just cosmetic either, or maybe his allergies are not helping the situation. Sure wish you did not have to put him under twice

    I really feel for you all, it is so hard when you have to try to sort out so many things at once .

    Poor sweetie Billy

    For vitamin C, natural is always the best way to go if possible. It's easiest to absorb and doesn't have all the additives that supplements do. You can add things like oranges, strawberries, bell peppers, melon, tomatoes, broccoli, and herbs like parsley, basil and cilantro to his diet and I guarantee he will love it.

    For immune system support I always head for the coQ10. 1 or 2mg per pound of body weight will fix him up right quick

    For me, her name was Abby

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