    Ohh ok, I am glad to hear he is doing better!!

    If it is the interdigital cysts ... Winston most likely has a food allergy of some sort --- have you thought about getting the full blood screen allergy test done? My boy, Nitshcke suffered with these until we did the test and identified he was allergic to rice -- once that was out of his diet they were not seen again.

    We are going to do this, hopefully sooner then later. Money is just a bit tight at the moment and our vet charges a pretty penny for it.

    OK.. here is a little piece of info to ensure you only have to do it once. Make sure there are no steriods in Winsotn for at least 30 dyas BEFORE the blood is drawn. You will get false negative results becasue the steriods masks the issues. I know when we did them 6/7 years ago it was close to $200 so I can imagine what it is now.

    I think in the meantime we are going to try home cooking for a while! I am doing some research and I want to make sure I do this right. He is already on the NuVet vitamin. I am thinking about starting him out on hamburger, kidney beans, and green beans. I am going to leave out the starch at the moment because he is having a slight yeast issue too. Any suggestions?!

    OUCH, but try to save for it. In the long run you will save a bundle on drugs, remedies and wrong food... put a little away each week if possible.

    Our Richard had them and they were allergy related. At that tome( years ago) steroid shots were the only answer

    That meal plan sounds OK to start with. Leave out everything else...also everything that he chews and treats. if you add anything in to his diet make sure it's one incredient at the time and wait to see if he gets any reactions...
