    EZ Complete - has anyone tried it?

    Yes, you can still give bone-in meals. Just treat meals made with EZcomplete as you would any other completely balanced food. To balance the bone-in meals, you'll need to feed at least a few meals of meat with a small bit of organ and a dash of egg yolk to balance those bone-in meals. :)

    Please help!--kitten w/ recurring diarrhea despite many visits to vet, changes in diet, and medicati

    I don't think anyone will be surprised if it turns out to be coccidia. I've treated coccidia in kittens with a yeast-based probiotic called Saccharomyces boulardii. It is a very close cousin of brewer's yeast, and one of the most researched probiotic strains in the world, used in hospitals to...

    Long-term Management of Arthritis: Onsior, Buprenex, Tramadol, or Adequan?

    I realize quite a bit of this thread is about pain management in arthritis. But for helping to manage the arthritis, as if we can reduce the inflammation, then the need for pain management is lessened, I shared my experiences in using omega 3s and a standardized curcumin product - which has...

    Bro and advanced arthritis and prognosis

    Please talk to your vet about using these three things: The krill oil (the dose we use and see wonderful benefit as I'll relate shortly here is 500mg 2x a day, and that is for our 7 lb cat and our 14lb cat. Typically, dose is not weight dependent, rather small animal vs large animal (big dogs)...

    Lisa, if you want just a bacterial probiotic with no additives, high quality, and a good selection of strains, Renew Life is an excellent choice, the Renew Life Ultimate Flora, 15bn CFU. But for IBD, it really helps to include an S boulardii probiotic. Renew Life has one... there are two...

    Lazlo, a TCS kitten through-and-through, our first feral, was called home

    He was, Tricia, he was! I know it was his time, we're not second-guessing that decision, but my goodness the crying is just crazy. He was SUCH a good boy - about everything. He oversaw the introduction of 15 more cats - and goodness knows how many fosters those first few years. :rub: What a...

    Mega massive vibes for Lazlo urgent

    Diagnosed the end of July, 2011, Lazlo was given four weeks to live without treatment. He went into remission - and stayed there. :) :heart2: But Lazlo's story has drawn to a close. On December 7, 2015, Lazlo was called home. It wasn't a return of that cancer. We don't know what it was. He died...
