I'm hardly an expert on this, but I have to agree . . .you want to do this in as scientific a manner as possible . . . change one thing . . .hold . . . see what happens . . .change another thing . . .otherwise you'll never know exactly what's wrong and may drive yourself, and poor Buddy, off the deep end. I think, as horrible as this sounds, that you want to be patient. Because you need information about the exact problem more than anything else.

Yes, I do. It's just really hard, because he's so miserable.

Have you had a chance to contact Mordy?

I agree with Herschel too..........it's darkest before the dawn and all that.

Give it a chance to work before you try something else. I know it must be hard, you want a solution NOW so he can have some peace

Mordy developed his plan, Renee.

I'm going to get a refill on his allergy meds and he'll just have to be on them until the ED does its wonders (we hope). He's in too bad of a condition to NOT be on them.

I remember that Mordy developed the plan for you, Nikki . . . I just wondered if you'd had a chance to talk to her about the problems you're running into right now.

If he's on his allergy meds, how will you know whether or not he's reactive as you introduce different things to his diet?

Poor widdle Buddy . . . . he's had a ruff time of things already!

We weaned him off the meds, which was part of the plan. But his condition is too bad for him to not have the meds- hence my post and the trouble I'm having with all of this.
