Just wanted to say I feel your pain, Doryn. I've had several experiences with vets that have left me wondering why they do the things they do. Well, they don't know anything else. They do what they've been taught to do.
You have come to the right place. This is a great web site for putting the power into your own hands for many ailments of people and pets. I will say, however, that the vet school here in Idaho has never let me down on diagnosis. But, once I have the diagnosis, I will use home remedies when it makes sense to do so. I hate the fact that vets resort to steroids they way they do....when in doubt, give them steroids!
I am treating our kitty cancer patient, Penelope, with the Budwig formula and Essiac Tea and we are very pleased with her progress, so far. As I mentioned in my own posts, I am giving her other things as well, but no radiation or chemo and she is feeling well, eating well....we are just very happy to be treating Nellie ourselves and not hurting her. I only wish I had been able to do this for some of our past pets, especially William who was wrongly diagnosed by our vet. I think he would be alive now if I'd had the correct diagnosis. So, from now on it's to the vet school for diagnosis. They have the equipment. But, then, we do the treatment, and to heck with their drugs, etc, unless we can't help them ourselves. But it looks like there are a lot of successful, natural remedies!
My best to you and your little doggie!
