About 1 1/2 weeks ago, I noticed a purulent discharge coming from my dogs lady part. Her name is Dazzle and she is a 12 yr old Boxer. At first I thought she was starting her season because I noticed a few drops of blood. Then within a few days she just seemed off. Not eating much but still eating, super clingy, really tired, frequent urination and heavy panting. Then all of a sudden we noticed a thick yellow/white discharge. I scoured the Internet in search of what this may be. (As it was a Sunday and local vets are closed, and ER vets here cost an arm & a leg) Long story short, after a vet visit and an estimated cost of 3k we knew it was Pyrometra. So after many hours last Monday again scouting the Internet, I found this page. Thank god! I decided to use the following method,
Dazzle is about 40lb's so this is the dosage I used,
- 1/8 tspn of Sodium Ascorbate
- 1/4 tspn Turmeric
- 1 1/2 tspn of 16+ Manuka Honey
The 1st day of treatment I was aggressive giving Dazzle this 5x's a day, the next day I went down to 4x's a day and then finally 3x's a day. It's now 1 week later and my girl is just about back to herself. She is again eating, barking, and again playing with her brother and sister. She is still leaking a bit but it has majorally diminished. And the color of the discharge has lightened up. And the texture is now more watery vs thick/stringy.
I want to give a big heart felt thank you from my fur baby and myself to all of of you who have posted your reviews and treatment options. I was feeling so desperate. No one should ever have to choose between paying their bills and caring for their pet.
