The Shiloh Story: My dog (Schnoodle) would periodically scream when moved, touched etc. several times a year. He was in evident pain and would withdraw until pain subsided (several days). He had test after test, saw 3 different vets at my clinic and nothing. Well several guesses I should say. They tried several medications but the only thing that gave him real relief during an episode was a cortisone shot. After a couple of years I started doing my own research and came up with an autoimmune disorder. The next time he had a flare up I took him in and shared my research with the vet. He sat down with me for an hour looking through the medical journal and said I was on to something. I decided on the natural treatment of 2 fish oil pills (300mg omega-3 each) and 1 vit. E pill (400 IU) every day; squeezed on his food. The little crusty scabs in his ears were gone in 7 days. Within 2 weeks I saw a huge difference in behavior. Within a month he was acting like he did years ago; spry, energetic started wrestling with his brother again. It has been 2 years and he has yet to have another flare up! Judging from the numerous sites I visited during my year of research this seems to be a wide spread problem that often goes undiagnosed because the symptoms could mean a variety of things. My vet has shared this remedy at conferences and now I'm sharing with you all. I hope it helps someone else out there.
