    Hi Dr Jeff, I got your name from Dr Mike Kaufman in Fl. My 5 and a half year old golden retriever is failing rapidly with a nonspecific type of kidney disease. I’m feeding him a low protein, high potasium diet but he’s not eating regularly. He’s on prednisone and pepsid AC. He’s anemic and the shots are $65 ~ he needs 2 per week to go for a very short walk. Is there any hope?

    Thank you,
    Kelly Z.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your dog. Kidney failure in such a young Golden is a real tragedy. Up here in CT glomerulonephritis secondary to Lyme disease is the most common cause for this fatal disease.

    Unfortunately I do not have enough information about your dog to help that much. In general, feeding a very high quality, palatable fresh food diet is best in these (and many) situations. Specific supplements that can help include Coenzyme Q-10, omega-3 fatty acids, renal glandulars, specific antioxidants, trace minerals, etc.

    If you *register* for this board and login you can send me a private message (PM) and I will be happy to help however I can. We can keep any general discussion in this forum, but I’d still appreciate your registering and becoming part of our growing community 😀 .

    Good luck, and let us know what’s going on.

    Dr. Jeff

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
