We have another mystery symptom to deal with. Both dogs are losing their hair. It's coming out in big patches. When Samba started sporting bald spots we thought it was related to her steroid use, but now Sky is losing his hair, too. The Doc thinks it has more to do with their weight loss and general poor condition. So he's come up with a new torture to try.
Natto! My apologies to any Japanese readers, but this is nasty stuff. Dr B warned me that is smells and tastes bad and that it looks like slime. Great, just what I wanted to play with. However, dogs do like to eat nasty, slimy, bad smelling stuff, so this might be very popular with the canine members of the family.
I can't get to the Oriental food store till next week, so I turned to a girl's best friend, Amazon.com, for help. There's a bottle of natto capsules winging it's way to us as I type and by this evening my two sick pups will be getting the benefits without the slime factor.
