Response to Comment about Japanese Chin

Sorry to hear that your pet is having so many issues with digestion, asthma and allergies. It sounds as though there is a lot going on. First and foremost, please take your pet to the veterinarian and get a full work-up. It is very important that you get a current blood test and urine analysis. Once you have this information and have had the opportunity to speak with your doctor, I would urge you to schedule a telephone consultation. We offer telephone consultations nearly every day--both Dr. Gordon and myself. We may able to help your pet by changing the diet and using a few supplements. Chicken and poultry could be a culprit but without a full discussion about all of the food you have tried, it would be hard to know. Also, ApoStom can help the lining of the digestive tract and reduce vomiting, while Soothing Digestive Relief can relieve gas and indigestion. Both of these formulas could help your dog feel more comfortable.
