Dog with bacterial infection secondary to allergic response

Our 5 1/2 yr. old Brittany Spaniel has been fighting a skin issue for almost two years now. We have had her to three different vets who have tried various things from acupuncture to skin scrapings. She (Brindi) has been on antibiotics, prednisone, and topical applications. The last vet told us that Brindi has a bacterial infection secondary to an allergic response. He told us that allergy testing could be done, but unfortunately it is expensive and may not reveal the root of the problem....We cannot afford to shell out hundreds of dollars, only to not be any further ahead with a solution. I found this website by accident, and ordered the Derma-IonX. We started Brindi on it 2/9, and so far, the belly has cleared up, but her legs are still a mess. She scratches and bites at her legs. The areas are red and scaly-looking. We are hopeful that her legs will also respond to the Derma-IonX, but should we be doing something else as well? She is currently on Taste of the Wild (Salmon) dog-food. We tried the ZD-Ultra for April through August, with no change in the skin. We also pulled up our wool rug for a length of time, but also no change in the skin.....Any thoughts? I plan to keep her on the Derma-IonX since her belly has improved while on it, with the hope that her legs will also respond. Will I have to keep her on this for the rest of her life since we don't know the origin of her allergy? Thank you for your time and expertise. -Anne-

Cat has a cough

My 6 yr old cat has congestion with a hacking cough, like choking. vet did throat procedure, and pulled "stringlike gunk" from her, with odor; sent stuff to lab.  It came back as bacterial, and possible "histocyte" cells. Could this stuff be cancerous, what type and how long antibiotic for bacterial infection; and if cancerous, treatment if any, time left, pain, etc. -

Cat is diabetic and very thin, please help!

My cat was diagnosed with diabetes about 5 months ago. we are trying to not have to give insulin shots. Fefe is a 9 year old American Short Hair.  She had gotten quite thin before we took her to the vet. she is about 6lbs. We give her 1/2 5mg. glipizide morning and night and inbetween Dia-IonX 2.5cc.  She has stayed the same weight since the beginning.  What can I do to help her gain some weight?  We feed her low carb higher protein food.  Atkins diet, good to lose bad to gain.  Her personality went down hill from the beginning and remains that way.  This is very sad for us and I am on a fixed income, so something budget friendly.  I am 72 and what something that doesnt require me adding more complications to her feeding routine. I hope you can help.  She really needs to gain some weight.  Thank you -Ken-

Does my dog have diabetes?

My dog (female beagle (Peanut) who is 10 years, 7 mths has arthritis, had lumps removed last April & the July before; allergies & sinus issues & is mt best friend.  I brought her in to the vet becasue she was shaking & she had vomitted a bit (brought her in when vomited 2nd day); she was drinking way more water & urinating more; was not going poop. Vet thought maybe her arthritis was affecting her, but after I gave her aspirin she continued to shake later in the day.  I had them check if she was blocked they gave her enima & cleaned her out as well as shot to stop the vomiting.  I asked if it could be diabetes because this was going on for a week & she was not eating much. Vet checked blood & glucometer read 30! I have  to bring urine in on Monday (tomorrow) for them to check, not sure if it is diabetes or pancretitis? If it is diabetes; I've read where I can give the dog cinnamon, apple cider vinegar & a couple other things...what are your suggestions? Can they be given together, with Dia-IonX or on their own?  -Michael-
