    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.

    Most commercial diets like raw diets have sufficient Selenium But lack Vitamin E.

    Autoimmune Disease does not just happen it requires a trigger. an event that starts the disease process.
    Some sort of stress from another disease, an injury, exhaustion, emotion distress, toxic exposure..
    Its usually temporary and the autoimmune reaction will cease as the body recovers,
    So this is why he had bouts of agonising pain..

    Even with treatment the condition can flare up at anytime..


    Conditions that can come along with Autoimmune disease are.
    Hypothyroidism
    Pemphigus Disease
    Canine Lupus
    Auto-Immune Hemolytic Anemia

    Genetics play a huge part in animals that have this condition.
    Vitamin E is given because most foods lack this Vitamin
    Omega-3 fatty acids help maintain healthy skin, coat, joints, heart, eyes and brain function as something going on with one of them could also be the trigger...
