    @karenben do you think the acv might help with the urine killing grass? I have a hard time bringing myself to use it as if I touch it, it burns and gives me blisters. I am headed out today to look for some probiotics and some fish oil. I am also going to pick up some neem oil/lavender oil/and EV cocunut oil to make an oil for the demodex on gyps. It is actually looking MUCH better but one spot is still itchy so I am hoping that would help. I want to probiotics to help boost her up until I am SURE the demodex has died down.

    @GatorRay - if you can get a hold of some green tripe, it's full of probiotics. Make sure they're keep chilled or frozen though, as the potency decreases once they reach room temp. I noticed that the Yahoo group says that they're not essential in rawfeeding and thought of as ordinary meat/organs, but in my area they're considered a probiotics heaven. which is mainly what I use them for.

    Or if you have a source for offal, they should consist of green tripe, organs and bone.

    the acv will dillute the urine as raw fed dogs dont drink much water it tends to be very acidic ,i have noticed a difference in strength and she is peeing more which is good for rawfwd dogs,the acv will also strengthen the immune system which will help get rid of the mange,just make sure it has the mother written on the label,i give annie flaxseed oil and primrose oil for immune boosting all are excellent,you can dab acv on the mange spot also it will help kill off any mites if indeed there are any present,i swear by the stuff,i take 2 teaspoons full with water every day and i swear i have more energy it also helps weight loss lol must be a bonus ha ha ,karen

    @savemejeebus I have looked everywhere for green trip and unless I order it online I just can't seem to find it. I am going to go with a human grade probiotic. I most likely will not make it a regular thing but just to boost her for now. I am not sure if the mites are gone or not. I have seen some re-growth of hair on most of her spots so I think we are clear there but possibly not in the largest spot.

    @karenben thank you for the tip on the acv. I will grab some. I am just not too keen on it since it burns my skin so badly. I spilled some on my leg at one time and it left a HUGE long blister on my leg. Not sure why...

    I haven't put them on anything for omega 3 yet so I am going to try to find some when I go looking for the omega three. I am going to look for one without soy which is tough to find so far! I think Gator might need some of the probiotics...his gas is rancid! lol

    he has gas on raw!!mine stopped farting within days lol,wear gloves when pouring it and dilute it when putting on skin as its very strong ,only use full strengh when putting in food,i buy flaxseed just as good as omega ,i also put pure cocanut oil in her meal thats a very good immune booster but only in tiny ammounts as it can cause very runny poops lol,karen

    Aha @karenben! I bought some ev coconut oil for the mixture for Gypsy's skin. That would be great to put a tiny bit in their food.

    YES, Gator has the WORST gas on raw. I think it might just be chicken. Back when I had him eating beef and pork, it wasn't so bad. But I put him back on chicken after the hives incident and am adding the others back slowly. It is truly nasty!

    can you get hold of ox/beef heart ?thats the protien annie has,its the best protien as its the darkest meat and full of all the vitamins dogs need,only give a tiny bit of cocanut to begin with as it causes runs,the acv most definatly helps with the urine annies peeing more and its not as concentrated,this was my only concern with raw they dont drink a lot which i would think causes problems with uti and its so smelly!!,karen

    Ok, well my VET is totally against Anti-histamines for Dogs, so I doubt he would give him a prescription strength med for Allergies, and I know he wouldn't give him another steroid injection. So I will have to try to provide Max with some relief myself......now how much Benadryl do you give ? I know one Vet at the Emergency clinic recommended Liquid Childrens benadryl, but I forget the dosage ......
    I just know Max spends his days sneezing, with red, runny nose and eyes and he needs some relief .....

    HELP !

    @Maximus & @bubbaisapig you can get the benydryl pills that come in 25mg dose. Then you give one pill for every 50lbs. I am not sure how often you can give them though.
