Its a HIVE update!!! And its not the food its the water!
We were at the vets on tusday cuz of Titan's neuter and we were all talking about his hives...they had done a biopy on one...we were talking about environmental issues and allergies and got on the topic of water. Well... about 3 months ago (when the hives began) we stared Titan on tap water..not thinking about the water softener for one second. So the vet had said that sometimes the salt in the water can have a reaction on animals. Just like humans. So we have RO (reverse osmostis) water in the house that hubby and I drink (Titan was drinking too) so we started feeding that to him and guess what NO HIVES!!! Its only been 4 days with no trace of hives so we are still keeping our fingers crossed. So if it is the water...I need to have a garage sale for all this food we have been testing these last few months! I called the local humain society and they can accept it unless its in a sealed bag!  Undecided Let me tell you from all the stess this week with Titan and his neuter this is defently a BREATH OF FRESH AIR or should I say A NICE COOL GLASS OF RO WATER!!!  Grin

EVERYBODY around me is prego.... dont "plan" on having a baby for a couple more years...one giant dog is enough worry on me. LOL  Grin
Yes; the water softner adds huge doses of salt to your tap water...plus we live in a rual area and they also add high doses of cholorine to the water as well..so still no hives today! So EXCITED!! Plus Titan is back to his old self again...he was just not himself with hives...so glad to have him back!
