Hi Dorothy,

Glad to hear Mikey is feeling a bit better.

Quote:
Scott's (gpgscott) Moria and also Steph's (corgipallie) Pallie have both had the melatonin implant.

I think Scott stopped using it because he had no way of knowing when the effectiveness was wearing off.

And I believe Glynda is also inquiring about it.

Belly rubs to Mikey

Hi Dorothy,

I'm glad Mikey is doing better! Your vet should have the recommendations listed on the UTK test results. They will list treatment option numbers and those numbers correspond to this list (on their website):

Wylie normally didn't have runny or loose stools, but I did switch to raw (Primal with some Nature's Variety). His poops in the past would be formed with medium firmness or somewhat "fluffy", but when I switched to raw... they got really firm and dense (no fluff). Just recently, I picked one of his poops up, and I thought "geez, that's hard as a rock" and then I thought, "that's odd, it's a rough shape". Then I realized...it WAS a rock...the poop was about a foot further than where I picked the rock up!

Hi Dorothy and Mikey,

I was also interested in the Melatonin implant for Harley, Scott posted in my thread
Quote:
Concerning the melatonin implant, Stephanie (corgipalliesmom) still does it, I do not.

As has been mentioned there is no concensus concerning the effective life of the implant, and the needle is large and can cause bleeding and scabbing.
For me, the large needle was the major reason I decided not to go with the implant, Harley hates needles. I really have a time with him when he has to get his shots. The scabbing and bleeding I don't know, like they say, every dog is different.

Good luck Dorothy and Mikey.
