I wish I had heard about these sooner.  My holistic vet recommended them and she uses them for all dogs…

…Immunity was filling a need (I decreased the number of pills he got each day as the supply dwindled the last week).

As soon as he took his first mushroom pill, he became superdog and that has continued. He has always been a happy dog (well, except for a few weeks following amputation), but now he is…

…his food, he does not have that extra edge of hunger that seemed pathological last week. It is hard to believe this is all is related to these mushrooms, yet that is the only change we made on the day this change in behaviour was observed (we did start Artemisinin
a few days earlier, but I don't…

…think it would have that kind of effect).

He is only on one Power Mushroom pill per day. I think he should be dosed at 2-3, but this seems enough for now. I was under the impression that it takes weeks for the effects to…

…enable them to spring for K9-immunity.

The change is good (other than risk of orthopedic injury), although one does wonder if these are Magic Mushrooms rather than just Power Mushrooms.

The vegetables that dogs should stay away from are like you said, onions (Whole Pet Diet says portobello mushrooms are OK), and gassy veggies like broccoli and cabbage. There is some controversy about whether or not to give garlic, but Whole Pets Diet

My question is whether there is anything unsafe or certain vegies to be avoided? I know to avoid onions and won't use mushrooms. Anything else I should avoid or any problem with this method of administering WATER? My vet thought it would be okay, and possibly good for his
