After posting the latest entry on my blog and on the Splitcoast Stampers website, I have probably received 20 or so comments, emails and PM’s with kind words and questions about Jack. Most people are just so happy for us. Other people are sharing their stories with me and want to try the powders as well. One person even thanked me for not giving up on Jack. I don’t have any medical answers, but just the story of what happened to us.
I am just so thrilled that we did that “one more try”. We had tried everything and I did not have hope that this would work. Once again, I am a firm believer in medicine. I have Crohn’s Disease and I know that I need my medicine. But I also know that medicine (the allergy shots, mostly) did not work for Jack. The steroids helped him with the itching, but it wasn’t keeping it under control and there are long-term side effects.
I am not an advocate of boycotting the veterinarian. However, I am a believer in trying other things when what you are doing doesn’t work.
