I'm a big believer in probiotics--for them and us. Actually, I asked the vet if I could be giving too many to them because the vet said there was an over abundance of a type of good bacteria in their systems. She said no, that the over abundance was as a result of the presence of the bad bacteria. Make sense? We get the results on Tuesday.
You know, that's what has been so frustrating with Bella and Dani being sick. We keep them clean and wash their feet and faces when we get back from a walk; they get no table scraps, they eat healthy, basically, we try hard to keep them safe from what's seen and not seen. But last January when Dani's cough got bad, finding it was an inflamed tonsil, treating her and Bella for bacterial infection, then Bella coming down with two very inflamed tonsils, treatment, then finding E coli, and now this. We have a small, small backyard and most of that is taken up with a pool. My husband cleans the two side patches of grass at least once a day and we keep the grass short for them. We have friends whose two dogs look like they're homeless and they are never sick. It could make a person depressed with frustration! But maybe this will be the answer. . . .
