Just a quick question–Lily’s stomach was upset about a week ago. I took her off all supplements so her stomach could settle with the intent to start her back on her supplements and introduce them one at a time.That way I can figure out which one is upsetting her. Her stomach was great the last two days. I started her back on artemisinin last night–today the upset stomach started again. My question is: Has anyone experienced the upset stomach with artemisinin ?
Thanks so much-I want her on the supplements, but not if they are making her sick.
Our beautiful Lily was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her front leg on 12/14/11 at age 8 and had amp on 12/16/11. She completed 5 rounds of carbo. She was so brave and kicked cancer's butt daily! She lived life fully for 4 years, 3 months, and 15 days after her amp. My angel is a warrior princess. I miss her so much.

Hi Joan – sorry you are having troubles. We never had problems w/ Abby’s stomach on the arte. I know a few people who used it and as far as I know they didn’t have troubles either.
Are you giving it with a whole milk product?
Of course you are right though – we want our pups to take their pills – but not at the expense of feeling good. I hope you can get her sorted out.
Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman.
