Please check with a holistic vet if that fits into your belief system  
and feed the absolute best diet you can.  It does not have to be the  
most expensive, but one full of vitamins (C especially--grind up  
veggies and mix with the food).  Avoid grains.  Stick with this  
group.  People don't always agree and belief systems vary but the  
information and support is great and will help you find your way.
