Dog´s testimony - Julie had sebaceous adentitis
I have a standard poodle, Julie, that had been diagnosed with late stage sebaceous adentitis in 2004. It is a disease in which sebaceous glands secrete oil into the hair follicles which is then deposited on the coat. In sebaceous adenitis, these glands fall victim to an attack by the dog's own immune system and are eventually permanently destroyed. Symptoms vary between dogs but the end result is permanent hair loss. The dog may have a strong, musky odor; thickened skin; and lesions, either as a result of the disease or from skin infections. My standard poodle lost almost all her hair, and was full of bloody scabs. I was told the treatment was a drug that the side effect is kidney damage.
I was told by our vets that our standard poodle will never be in full coat again, and that the medication can maybe help her go into a remission. The poor dog was so itchy, scaley and pathetic looking, but it wasn't worth it to use a drug with such horrible side effects.
I was recommended to give Julie organic coconut oil, hemp oil and supplements that included probiotics, enzymes and organic whole food ingredients like oat and wheat grass and wild grown blue green algae to add to the food we were feeding her. She eats Newman's Own dog food, mixed with organic juice and veggies I prepare. In about 6 mo., we couldn't believe that Julie was actually starting to grow her hair back. We use the Nutrabeautiful Lotion with Beta Glucan on her skin and was shocked to see her hair grow back. It has been about 18 mo. now, and Julie is back in full coat. No one can believe this is the same dog.
We have a mobile groomer that comes to the house and grooms Julie. For months we didn't have her groom her, because there was no hair to groom. At the beginning when she was grooming Julie, she said the truck was covered in hair. Now, she can't believe that she doesn't shed at all.
Julie is a true miracle!
