My dog Bucky is a 13 year old Lab/Chow Mix. He takes Levothyroxine
.6mg, 1pill twice a day for Hypothyroidism. He also gets a joint supplement
called Cety M.
I am looking for Holistic Medicines that would help with the health issues
Bucky is having as explained next -
He has always had fatty tumors, and has had a lot removed surgically. But
he has developed a fatty tumor up in the crease of his inner thigh, which if
surgically removed would be almost impossible to heal because of movement.
The other main problem he has is incontinence, which he wears a diaper
for. We had extensive tests done to find out why he dribbles all the time.
They diagnosed him with nerve compression in the L6 vertebrae. They said he
is in no pain, but it is the reason for the incontinence, plus he has muscle
loss in his rear end and hind legs. He also has some loss of feeling in his
tail. Despite all this, he does still get around great and play a bit. The
specialist said we could do surgery on the spinal nerve, but there is no
gaurantee it will help. He said this may be the worst it will get. We are
afraid the recovery from such a
surgery will be more than he can handle at his age.
