Those formulas won't interfere with the pharmaceuticals usually used for such cases and can be taken in conjunction with them. They are not stressful to the liver or kidneys.

Dandelion. Root for liver, leaf for kidneys, flowers for skin. Dandelion will never steer you wrong, she just wants to help. :)

The great thing about Dandelion is there is GREAT overlap in the functions of the parts. If you don't have one, try one of the others.

This photo is what caused all of these problems. The vet thought it was a bite of some sort and prescribed the cipro and prednisone. That's when the tremors began. After all of that, the "bite" is still there and is swollen. I hope the photo will help identify the "bite" and a remedy.

Regarding the photo...the bite is on the outside edge of her right front paw about 1" from her nail. I would appreciate any suggestions.

With that information I am wondering if it is not a foxtail or some other foreign thing that got in there. Was an Xray taken of the foot?

I know Patrick has images of what a foxtail can do but did not find it on his blog.

Our vet continues to say treat it as a bug bite so she didn't do an x-ray. Would an x-ray show foxtail embedded in her paw?

Whatever the bite was is almost healed. I began putting Echinacea compresses on it. That seemed to have made a huge difference in the healing process. Thank you for your help.

Thank you for the information. One question, How do I transition her from the meds prescribed by the vet to the herbs? Also, will the herbs affect her liver and/or kidney like the anti-inflammatory that she is taking?


No need to transition. The herbs won't interfere with the meds in this case. They are much easier on the liver. So no worries of overloading doing both.
