Hi Dr. Char. I took my 104lb Golden Retriever/Great Pyraneese Mix in to be spayed. She is a stray and I need her spayed to register her as a service dog. I had never had her at the vets. She was diagnosed with heartworms and her blood would not clot, so they could not do the spay. The vet put her on Doxycycline-100mg caps 5 capsules every 12 hours and 3 Vitamin K tablets for 7 days. She could not keep the medicine down and then she stopped eating. The vet said to cut back the antibiotic to 5 capsules/day, but she still will not eat. I have have looked at the on line information about the traditional treatment and I would prefer to treat her holisticly. I have read about Food Grade Diatomacious Earth & Colloidol Silver. Can you recommend how I treat her anemia and heartworms without overloading/overwhelming her? Thank you for your help.
