    Hi...i've been a long-time lurker, but thought i would finally join and say hi, especially as i've found some of the advice given out on here really useful...so thought i'd repay my debts!:thumbup:

    I have a 1 year old staff-cross who has had issues, but coming along very nicely and wouldn't be without him for the world!!

    hey, hun! :--)
    he looks like a chronic worrier, here - relaxed bodily in this photo, but not mentally
    or emotionally relaxed. :huh: does that sound accurate? has he gotten less-anxious with age?

    curious,

    He had mange when he was young and when he's a little run down, i think it's still reflected in his coat.
    Terry, i can't work out whether he's anxious or not....hard to explain, but he "talks" a lot and often has this look!!

    hey, ty! :--)
    i am going to guess he had Demodex (not Sarcoptes) - Demo-outbreaks are a strong indicator of auto-immune issues.
    Pitties, Dobes, Boxers, Min-Pins, Doxies, + some other smooth-coat breeds (and their mixes) are more-susceptible vs other breeds -
    there are a number of things that can help to support + improve his immune-function, even now at 12-MO -

    * raw garlic peeled + minced fine
    i buy the minced packed in water + keep it in the frig in the jar ;)

    * probiotics -
    as many species as U can lay hands on :lol: and high-potency/REFRIGERATED not low-potency shelf-stable

    * digestive-enzymes -
    human-grade and many specific types in one capsule; they help with digestion + absorption, *both*

    * organic-yogurt -
    which can be used to trap the powder from the probiotic + dig-enzyme capsules, so they don;t fly off when the dog sneezes
    after sniffing :lol: just stir the powder in well before offering it, or mix the dosed-yogurt right into his meal

    RenewLife Digest-ULTRA is an excellent digestive-enzymes blend;
    Udos-Choice is a wonderful line with incredibly high-potency probiotics -
    some have Billions with a B organisms per capsule, Wow.

    full-disclosure:
    for anybody wondering, i do not get a dime or any other consideration -
    i use em, i like em, i recommend em. ;) i bought them for my elderly mother, when she was ill,
    and they really helped her, too; me, my pets, my family, my clients have used them, with good results.

    cheers,
    --- terry
