Ike started doxy last night. I am a bit nervous because of his history of GI upset and how tough doxy is on the belly. However we made no midnight runs last night. Knock on wood, it continues!!

Dr. F says he usually treats high C6s with immune boosters and homeopathy and retests in 6 months. Given what happened with Bug I just don't feel 100% about that method. Dr. F said it was fine if I was more comfortable with the doxy to do that.

We are supposed to talk this morning and I would be interested in what immune boosters he recommends. I started Ike on Puriphy (milk thistle) and Standard Process Immune System Support this a.m. I will continue it for a month after the doxy, I think.

ps: Emma is having her babies right now (8:47 a.m.) ! You can watch via Holly's webcam. One so far - almost all black girl at 6:55 a.m. Good luck Emma!!

Hi Jules,

Can you give me info on Puriphy? I am interested in maybe starting Stewie on it.'

Sure thing. Here is a
to Hilton Herb’s web site.

Smartpak carries it, and that’s where I usually buy it.

I hope Ike continues to do well on the doxy.

I don't know Emma, but I thank you for reminding me that it's MareStare season! It's my only way into the horse world nowadays.

Just realized Emma is a Cardi - I couldn't stream the video because my internet is on the fritz. Either way, congrats on the pups and it still stands - once I get my internet back in shape I'm going to have so many cams open :)
