also try melatonin for the separation, it's what I give my thunderphobic aussie, doesn't knock them out, but chills them out.
I like a combo of glucosamine/MSM/hylauronic acid, usually can find this combo at walmart in the vitamin section.
As for dairy, nix that idea, dairy as in milk, can give a dog diarhea..

She is doing great!! Thanks everyone for checking.
Last week I saw marked improvement and she is still doing great. Up playing with and chasing the cat and has loved our walks the last few days. She seems to be a normal puppy now.
The vet couldn't identify the bacteria or fungus that caused the infection but whatever it was the antibiotics are definitely working.
She is on glucosamine too, probably for life. I will try the valerian for her separation issues too. Does anyone have suggestions on other beneficial supplements for her?

|emilybyrne||Thank you. The vet's office just called to check up on her and I told them that she hadn't gone. The vet I supposed to be calling me later with ideas. I know the last thing on her mind is the bathroom and if she is constipated she probably doesn't care. I just want her to be comfortable as much as possible.|

|Eiros||I dont have any advice except talk to the vet, but just wanted to say THANK YOU for rescuing and THANK YOU for taking care of her in this tough time -- I hope once she's feeling better with a get a nice introduction post loaded with pics of your new friend.|

Call the vet. They should be willing to give you advise over the phone without a charge. My vet suggested 1/2 of a premixed human enema for constipation but in your case, I'd talk to the vet. I'd ask about stimulating urination with a wet washcloth as that might work.
