Fudge mentioned Natto in one of his posts recently and a couple of you asked about it. When Samba and Sky were sick, Dr B suggested trying it. It's great for digestion and has lots of protein and vitamins. It's a Japanese food made from fermented soybeans. The dogs love it, but a word of warning, it stinks and it looks gross and though I haven't tasted it, I hear it tastes about as bad as it looks (to humans). If your dogs are like mine, they adore anything stinky and gross. We buy it at the Oriental food store and keep it in the fridge. The dogs get it about once a week.
Spring has arrived and with it came bugs and bees, and with them come bug bites. This morning Lola showed me her front foot. One toe is swollen and hairless. There didn't seem to be an abrasion, so I put some medicine on it and gave her some Benedryl. She's wearing a cone of shame for now. Tonight I'll soak her foot and watch it closely. Hopefully the swelling will go down soon. If not, we'll be going you know where.
