"My gut reaction is to get him on digestive enzymes, a probiotic between the antibiotics doses, and some slippery elm to coat the GI track with soothing stuff. He's on a pharmacy cocktail of prescribed antibiotics, dewormer, and who knows what else."

It's serious enough that the shelter vet isn't sure he's going to make it and has nothing more to offer him. Any ideas to help Ozzy?

Believe me.....I was there with my first GSD! She was a 90 pound dog, down to 50 pounds even though she was eating ravenous, about 10 cups of food per day! The food would go in one end and come out the other end 10 minutes later strewn with blood. Her black hair turned red, and it was falling out in patches! When she slept, she would ooze bright yellow bile from her rectum and wake up soaked in it! The conventional vets said she'd be dead before she reached 3 years old and I wasn't having any of that or anymore drugs they kept pushing! I went completely holistic using raw human grade foods, homeopathy, supplements, herbs, nosodes, chiropractic's and acupuncture, NEVER another vaccine.....and she lived until her 12th birthday gathering 12 titles in 4 styles of agility, tracking and obedience!
Below are all human grade "professional products" that saved my dogs life!
Hope this helps!
