THANK you for this help-bull info !!!:)

Wow, I did not know doggies could have sauerkraut. Since our poor guy is on Prednisone,
he is RAVENOUS. Thanks to [MENTION=15310]helsonwheels[/MENTION], I now know that he should be on a probiotic.


The Catch-22 with him is that we don't want him to gain weight due to severe
arthritis. Thanks to this thread---instead of buying him pills--- we'll try the sauerkraut or yogurt. I think
he will love both of them, poor thing is so desperate for ANY food, he's even tried eating
his stools.
