    Wow! Thank you so much for getting back to me with all these great links, and info. I really appreciate it. Yeah, the biggest thing is getting the pancreatitis under control, then I can concentrate on the better diet for the Diabetes. The problem is getting there, this pancreatitis, is a real struggle for dogs, I had no idea. She is on antibiotics for it, and unfortunately it's just a waiting game. ugh ! I have to be so careful what I feel her right now.

    I'm so glad to hear someone else, talk about these nutritionists, although I am sure they can be a good resource, the one I called just put me off so much, I can't even consider them.

    Turmeric is such a great product for humans and pets, however I would feed it raw, only because there are so many fillers in the powder/pill forms. I know when I eat Turmeric, I just chop it up and add to salads, etc. I know it's difficult to get dogs to eat it raw, I know it's not for everyone ,raw ,either, so yeah, it's just a matter of trying i guess. I'm sure I will have to find a way, once they pancreatitis is cleared up.

    I cannot thank you enough for forwarding me all this info., so grateful.
    TTFN~

    With pancreatitis, the big thing is to go slowly and feed small meals... don't try to feed too much too early or you stress the pancreas all over again. I hope she starts feeling better soon and can make a full recovery from the pancreatitis.

    There are some supplement versions without fillers. Or, if she won't eat it sprinkled on her food, you can buy empty capsules at a pharmacy or on Amazon, then chop your fresh turmeric up small (maybe shred it with a cheese grater) then stuff it into the capsules to make your own pills. That way you know exactly what is in it.

    Yeah, this is tricky due to the pancreatitis, so I have to just take it easy until she is over that. Good idea about the capsules. May I ask where/what brand you get of Turmeric?

    Wonka takes "Thorne CurcuVet-SA50" My vet had recommended the brand for something else and then when I was looking for Turmeric I chose this one because it was easy to dose for a pug and is supposed to be a highly bioavailable form of turmeric. I looked at the ingredients list and there are some other things in there besides Turmeric... stuff that keeps it from caking/clumping.

    Has anyone heard of bone meal powder & no salt ?

    My vet recommended me a diet today, just until Bean's pancreatitis is healed, but the recipe calls for bone meal powder and no salt ( a salt substitute)

    I've never used anything called no salt,( I understand why they want me to use it) I assume you can get it anywhere? I have no idea where to get bone meal powder. Any suggestions, or has anyone added these ingredients to any home cooked meals?

    Thanks ~

    I just Googled Bone Meal Powder and saw some information on it. Some seems a bit concerning especially for dogs with Pancreatitis.
    Most Vets get very little training in Nutrition so it is up to us to do our own research.

    I use both Bone Meal Powder and no salt supplements in my guys home cooked diet, I get them from Amazon

    They are both recommended in Lisa’s crystal protocol, don’t know about pancreatitis though.

    Thank you. Yeah, my vet said that this has the right balance of nutrition and other benefits Bean needs, so... You are correct, we do have to do our own research and ask tons of questions. This is why I'm glad I'm here as well, so help~
