Oh my gosh! I didn't realize a dog could get lupus! I heard someone else on this board talk about
a dog with lupus, but didn't realize it was an actual dx . . . . I just thought it was an autoimmune issue. I'm so sorry you've had so many problems with your pups. How very sad for you. It is so hard to watch a pet suffer . . . we always wish they could talk so they could tell us how they are feeling.
For sure, I would try using a holistic food. This would be a food, at the very least, which does NOT contain by-products or byproducts (which contain anything from bowel contents to tumors). You will see an increase in energy and personality in about
a week when you make such a switch. If you need some sources, just let me know. They sell several good brands in Pet Supplies Plus. The other big name pet stores may carry some now, but they didn't when I was on the hunt. Some good names are Merrick, Solid Gold, Wysong, Newman's Own, Canidae.
Keep us posted on how they decide to treat your pooch. OY!!! So sad!!
