Roxy, Roxy

Well I finally heard back from our friend in the States regarding Roxy. She passed all the info to a Vet friend. The response was less than I had hoped for although I guess I wasn't expecting a diagnosis of her condition. Basically it said to see my Vet and follow his advise. Well I've decided not to have a biopsy done. Instead after many hours of research I have started Roxy on a homeopathic " ". Cure is not the word I looking for but it is supposed to help ease the discomfort. We started with a weeks supplement of Sulphur 30x which will be followed with about 8 weeks of Aurum Met 30x. The sulphur tabs are to help boost the immune system and the Aurum Met is supposed to help with the nasal tissues. We have previously tried applying vitamin E from capsules directly to her nose as suggested by many people including the Vet. When I was at the Nutrition store I asked if there was some type of ointment or cream I could try. The lady, from personal experience, told me to throw away the capsules as they were not strong enough. She suggested a vitamin E skin oil which from her own use was very effective. We have been using it twice a day for just over a week. What an improvement. Is it the oil or the supplements? I don't know but I'm going to keep using both as neither has any side effects. Her nose looks so much better.
