Hopeful News for Degenerative Neurologic Diseases - Dr. Allen Schoen â€“ Holistic Integrative Veterinary Healthcare
The good news is that an innovative, progressive, renowned neurologist at the University of Florida veterinary school, Dr. Roger Clemmons, has developed an integrative approach to this disease that appears to be helping many more dogs!
Dr. Clemmons also has his specific diet on his web page.
His goal with his diet is to provide excellent quality of ingredients along with the protein source coming from soybean curd (tofu).
However, some dogs may have an allergy to soy or it may cause gas and bloating.
If your dog has these problems, tofu should be avoided.
He also recommends using extra virgin olive oil has a source of essential fatty acids.
This is an excellent source.
However, some research suggests that evening primrose oil, black currant and borage oil may even be a more appropriate source of essential fatty acids in immunocompromised animals.
These are more expensive and more difficult to find sometimes.
Dr. Clemmons suggests two cloves of raw garlic freshly crushed.
Dr. Clemmons has extrapolated many of his other suggestions for degenerative myelopathy (DM) from Dr. Andy Weil's recommended program for human patients with multiple sclerosis, a human disease that appears similar in its pathologic model to degenerative myelopathy.
Dr. Clemmons likes walking and swimming as his preferred exercise programs.
For DM dogs, Dr. Clemmons suggests a higher dose of 100 mg.'s.which is a good idea.
He also suggests one tablespoon of nutritional yeast in powder or flake form as a good source of B-complex vitamins, trace minerals and some protein.
