Tylan powder/probiotic

Well, you all know the ups and downs we have had with sweet Django since Christmas. I am happy to say, he continues to do great, recovering each day.

He's on a tiny pinch of Tylan antibiotic 2x a day to help with the colitis. I know this is one of the products found in Angel Eyes. His face looks amazing. It's the best it's looked in over 5 years. The plus side is that he needs to be on this for about another month. Trying to figure out how to keep his face looking amazing once we go off it.

Can anyone recommend a great probiotic? We were using Geneflora but to be honest, I don't think it did any good. My husband keeps pushing Dynovite but i haven't heard about anyone who has used it and to be honest, with my dogs issues, i need to keep things as simple as possible.

This is what I use. I'm also using the Angels Eyes and it's working like magic. My plan is to gradually reduce dosage and or frequency of the Angels Eyes but will continue with the probiotics. My boss uses the Angels Eyes for his Bichon mix and he periodically stops it all together until he sees the tear staining starting to return.

I use human probiotics on my dogs, when they need them. I like Jarro brand.

I would ask if he can stay on a pinch of tylan, especially if it is helping his colitis too. having had lyme, I believe in better living through antibiotics! seems I never feel as good as when I am on them.

I like schiff acidophilus (human) one pill a day for the boys (which they eat no problem) -- they also have a milk free version. This is what sabine originally recommended as an option a long time ago...and it just stuck.

I've got Angels Eyes but Cora threw up soon after. Did your dogs have similar reaction?

Riley did. I cut the dosage in half. Still worked but no tummy trouble.

Tillie always seems to get really bad/cracked/oozing sores all over her body after being on the tylan for 2-3 weeks. sigh. it seems no one else has this reaction, but it's happened 3 times now and the pattern is always the same...

Thank goodness Django has had no reaction to the Tylan (a first!). I know the vet wants to keep him on it for a while for the colitis.

I started Henry on Angel Eyes 2 weeks, ago. 1 teaspoon a day, though just starting to show improvement. Wondering do i continue with same dosage? and for how long?

I'm so glad to hear Django is doing so well. He looks great in your profile pic!

I use Angel Eyes on Piper with great results. I use less than the recommended dosage at about 1/4 teaspoon a day for a few weeks until clear and then periodically when needed (about 3-4x/year). She had horrible stains on face and feet with gunky eyes (to the point where I initially thought her beard was tan!) and this keeps her looking fantastic.
