Funny you mention C -- I actually just added an Ester-C to her supps. She does eat cubes of NB roll from my hand, and small amounts of food--but it's pretty clear her appetite is fading fast. Typical of KC.
I've never used colosutrum. I can swing by Whole Foods and look for it. You've seen it help sick dogs, I take it?
I don't have access to tripe here right now. I may check with the butcher who sold me the other stuff and see if he might bring tripe to the farmer's market this weekend (he comes from out in the country..not sure if he sells it).
I'm thinking I'll bake up some of the meat with some oats and a few eggs for her. I think the cooked liver in it might appeal to her.
The coconut oil has to be started in small doses and worked up. I think it's likely important for her, as she's also got lots of yeasty stuff going on (in the ears, on the skin, undoubtedly systemic inside her too). We gave her a chlorhex bath when we brought her home, and her skin already seems to feel better. Vet today gave us Otomax for the ears too--when we cleaned them with a diluted vinegar solution, we noticed lots of crusty, dirty stuff, which the vet wants to treat. I do think we need to support ridding the yeast slowly systemically--not too fast as the last thing she needs right now is herxing on top of all the other problems.
Her energy is pretty good. She wants to go walking and it perks her up, though we only go about three houses down as I don't want to tire her out. The change of scenery and fresh air seems to agree with her, and she seems so happy to be outside, even for a short bit.
