What can my boss do to help a huge dog heal?
Months ago my boss took her Mastiff to the vet because of an oozing inflamed foot. They did surgery because they thought it was a tumor, turned out not to be. It's been infected and not healing ever since. They've tried antibiotics and special washes and vet specialists and nothing works. Today they tried another wash and stronger antibiotics with steroids. The next step if this doesn't work is amputation. The poor thing has been in this condition hurting and restrained from walking or running for so long now that her muzzle has gone gray from it and she's very depressed.
Is there anything she can give the dog at home to promote healing? Any kind of special diet or supplement or anything that can promote healing and ease the stress?
