NUTRITIONAL PROGRAM FOR AKITAS WITH "SEBACEOUS ADENITIS"

Use capsules instead of tablets whenever possible. When no amount is given, follow the directions on the bottle. Strained baby food meat is a great way to give supplements. Mix the meat with the pills, scoop onto your finger and give to your dog.

Unless otherwise noted, everything should be given twice daily with food

Vitamin A--from fish oil: 25,000IU for three weeks, then 10,000IU for three weeks. Rotate in cycles of three weeks.
Vitamin C: Ester C with bioflavanoids: 1,000mg twice daily
Vitamin B complex: 50mg twice daily
Biotin: 5mg daily (Country Life has a 5mg capsule)
Choline and Inositol: 225mg each twice daily (can be purchased as a combination capsule)
Isoflavone: 10mg

Full Range, Free Form, Peptide Bond Amino Acids including Branch Chain Amino Acid group- all in capsules. At least 5 capsules daily split in AM and PM, Plus:

N-acetylcysteine - 500mg
L-methionine - 500mg
L-tyrosine - 500mg
L-glutathione 50mg

Selene E (this product is by Schiff and is a combination of Vitamin E-400IU and selenium-200mcg) one daily.
Zinc 50mg with Copper 3mg once daily
Chromium: 400mcg once daily

Salmon Oil from Wild caught salmon (Eskimo brand or Grizzly brand)

Dandelion herb: 3 capsules twice daily
*Pau d'Arco: 3 capsules twice daily
*Echinacea: 2 capsules twice daily
*Burdock: 3 capsules twice daily

Silymarin: 300mg twice daily
Kyolic garlic (a deodorized form) 2 gelcaps twice daily
Grape seed extract: given by weight, follow directions
Co-enzyme Q10: 50mg daily twice daily

One-half cup cottage cheese (cottage cheese is a sulfur based protein used by the body to bind to the fatty acid supplements which makes the fatty acids available for use by the body.)

Complete digestive enzyme: Give two capsules with each meal.... this is very important

*Note: 3 of these herbs can be withdrawn AFTER all odors and crusts are gone. If there is a flare up, reinstate the herbs.

Everything listed above is there for a reason. It is this combination of supplements that has been successful so please do not leave anything out.

Buying vitamins mail order is a saving. Vitamin Discount Connection is one place I use: 1-800-848-2329

DO NOT VACCINATE: Use homeopathic nosodes instead of vaccines. Your dog's immune system is already damaged and modified live vaccines will further damage the immune process. The nosodes are available by mail from Dr. Charles Loops (919) 542-0442 or Newton Labs 1-800-448-7256.

DO NOT GIVE chlorinated water. If bottle water is not convenient put a filter on your water supply or give distilled water.

DO NOT USE PESTICIDES:

DO NOT USE MONTHLY HEARTWORM, use daily if you live a heartworm area. 

You must feed an all-natural diet. Raw fruits and vegetables should be ground up; fresh fish, brown rice, tofu, miso, sea vegetables like nori, wakame, dulse are excellent additions. If you do not feed a home made diet, use a dry food that is manufactured from ingredients "for human consumption."

You must be patient. It can take six months or longer before fur returns IF your Akita responds to the program.
