Default Healing

My German suffered with fistulas for a long time.
No treatment worked at all. I heard about colloidal silver spray and thought
I'd give that a try. It is available at most health food stores. I sprayed it on the fistulas twice daily and now two months later they are completely healed. Please try this if your dog has these fistulas. It truly works miraculously. It is not expensive and all natural. I swear, this works.

Were your GSD's fistulas under control when you tried the Colloidal silver spray?

We are new to PF's as our 9-year-old GSD, Charli, was just diagnosed a few weeks ago. We started the Cyclosporine/antibiotic/antifungal treatment approximately 2 weeks ago. We are also curious about how diet plays into this. Any information on websites, forums, etc...would be helpful!

Default Treatment

My beautiful shepherd has suffered with this for a long time and I came to the decision that I either had to get something that worked or I would have to put him down as he was in so much pain.
Will I found something that works !!!! I have been using an antibiotic called Cephalexin. I started him off on a 1000 mg a day for a week and then 500 mg a day. Also with the antibiotic I apply desitin on him every night. I had to apply it twice a day in the beginning He has gone from a dog that would cry every time he had to poop to almost completing pain free.
This will be a life long treatment plan but it does work and it is not expensive

Hi. My gsd has the same fistula issue,on prednisone and has had the same antibiotics u xplained which he did well on. Vet wants me to go onto a hyperallergenic dog food. He was on royal canine gsd adult but he's being getting diareah which is irritating the fistula even more. When he does get a firm stool he tend to yelp/whine which is so dis heartning as I feel so helpless.
Would otocleanse work to help keep the area clean or would it sting.
Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated

My 4yr. old male, was on Cyclosprine and threw up every meal. He is now on Azathioprine 2 1/2 50mg tabs (once a day) & Prednisone 1 1/2 20mg tab a day. HUGE improvement in ONE week. First time he has wagged his tail in 7mos! He is eating Nature's Recipe Salmon & Sweet Potatoe dry dog food. He is finally healing. VERY smart vet, he was on Animal Planet f/ a year! ("Who's Who") vet. Vet is God sent! He has saved GSD's quality of life. Try these meds & this food. He is going to recover.

My vet was on Animal Planet for a year. He's on the "Who's Who" vet list! He switched my GSD to Nature's Recipe Salmon & Sweet Potatoe. He is on Azathioprine & Prednisone. First time I've seen him wag his tail in 7mos! My boy is healing! Pet Smart or Petco carry this brand. My "tail" is wagging again also!

He switched us to Nature's Recipe Salmon & Sweet Potatoe dry dog food. He is healing. First time his tail has wagged in 7mos! I am "on cloud nine" to get my boy's spirit back.

YES! My GSD is eating Nature's Recipe Salmon & Potato. Excellent, no bi products. Vet from Animal Planet suggested it.
