Holistic Options

So today Linus had his appointment with Dr. Frick to discuss holistic
options for treating his melanoma. She had two things to consider
neoplasene (bloodroot) and cats claw. BUT she recommended holding off
until after our consult at the University on Tuesday. She thought that
if Linus gets into the study then they would not want him on any other

She did identify some pain in his hips and we got some muscloskeletal
complex and an herbal analgesic plus cod liver oil. So we will start
on those and see if that helps his allergenic paw licking and his hip
pain. He does pant a lot and that can be a sign of pain so I'm hoping
to see a reduction in that as well.
