    You’re right, that was my mistake. She’s on Fluconazole twice per day. They said it could be up to a year.

    Tonka's medicine costs between $40-$55 a month.

    We did bloodwork every three months. I think we should have done every six months though. If it seems like the dog is feeling so crappy I think they should try something for an acid stomach and see if he perks up. The prednisone and fluconazole were affecting Tonka's and she took Pepcid or something similar for a while.

    Tonka is turning into a fatty again! She gained 7 lbs. since her last Dermatologyappt. At the end of March. The Vet said we should put her on a slimmer food for senior dogs. I have no idea what to do? Right now she is on 3/4 cup Acana Mackerel 2X daily. She also gets a couple of TBS of Eagle Pack turkey 2X daily. They are lean TBS. then she gets two glucosamine chews every day. She also gets 1/8 cup kibble at lunch time.

    So far I took 1TBS TURKEY AWAY IN THE MORNING AND THE EVENING. I LIKE EAGLE pAcK CANNED BECAUSE IT CONTAINS LIVER AND I THINK IT IS REALLY GOOD FOR THEM.

    I forgot I've been giving her golden paste several times per week. So she is getting 1/2 tsp. coconut oil 2X daily (about every other day?).
