Midas, 11 yr old Golden Retriver, has had too many problems. He started panting for no reason during the day, in the middle of the night and especially after
going for a walk. he even stopped coming upstairs to see us unless there was food waiting for him.
Went to vet and did expensive blood test, etc and was told that all the problems I had made a list of were due to old age. Somehow, I could not accept this.
After a few months passed and the condition worsened regardless of what I treated him with, I took him to
a wonderful man at the health food store.
He told me that all his problems were due to parasites. I was stunned to hear this. He gave me pills with no charge and told me to give him the colon cleaner twice a day.
It did not happen overnight, but Midas is now going for his usual morning mile walk plus walks during the day and is not panting.
So, something to think about.
Needless to say, I stopped going to the vet that I thought would help my dog. I realize that staff of all health food stores are not as knowledgeable, but we certainly lucked out with this one.
I suggest finding a good health food store with a very informed owner and you might add years to your dogs life.
Or if your dog has a problem consider it might be due to parasites.
Our Golden has to sniff everything everywhere and ingests strange things before we can get to him.
After all He is a Dog!!!
