For my information can I know the source of the Report that states that kibbles hit the liver and kidneys?
We were keeping this fussy Bozo (the abandoned Spitz that we took in from an Indira Nagar foster home last October when it was around 2-3 years old) on a homemade vegetarian diet which subsequently resulted in gastritis, fall in electrolytes and increase in serum creatinine to 1.88 from normal of around 0.6. It had acute constipation resulting in bilirubin accumulating in the Liver instead of flowing into the colon. The bilirubin passed through urine on two occasions which is termed as gross hematuria. Frequent visits to the vet, blood test, long course of antibiotics and Issabgol was quite a physical strain on us. Then it had a weak right hip. So it is now on Venky's PAWS UP for the weak hip (near which it had a gash/wound when we took it in which seems to have been caused by a hit), Regale and home-made paneer and of course Issabgol. It is healthy now, likes Regale with regular passing of stool though the stool is dark (like the colour of Regale) and hard. We will be going in for another blood test to check on serum creatinine level and electrolytes. I introduced Bozo to Regale as it stated that no artificial preservatives and additives were used and is chicken based.
We are vegetarians by choice. The idea of mutton or chicken or their parts coming into our house is totally out of question even if they are meant only for Bozo. This fussy Spitz refuses even cool home-made curd despite it being hot to turning up its nose to vegetables. It takes in little milk off an on (Amul Cream/Gold). Do I have a choice?
I have not given it any vaccination yet though am planning to give it only once D/P and that too only on a positive health report after its second blood test. I would prefer to give it a recombinant vaccine rather than the routine stuff passed around by vets. I have not yet been able to find a vet practicing homeopathy so that I could give Bozo a homeopathic vaccine or nosodes. Vaccines, vets and kibbles (especially the crap Pedigree Professional or other imported stuff from companies who are subsidiaries of large MNCs) is a deadly combination in India as I learned from my past experience on loosing my beloved Jerry whose suffering for 6 months after its last dose of a combo from Dr. Sudhir (LMC) at a senior age still haunts me. It too was a very fussy eater and, therefore, I used to feed it the much touted (by vets) Pedigree Professional.
