It is life threatening, it can be controlled with Prednisone (taking a lot of that is also not a picnic, believe me) but that is not always successful.
So, watch the onions in table scraps
I never knew this about onions!! Occasionally my dad gives her leftover potatoes, and sometimes they have onions in them, and she always eats around the onions. We won't give her anymore though!
Thanks for all of the suggestions! I'm going to see what I can do...everything seems reasonably priced, but I am not sure if I can drop $30 or $40 on a bag of dog food right now...I realize that over time, the price is good, but $40 is a lot to spend at once right now. We have been giving her more table scraps, and I am noticing that she is eating a lot less of her actual dog food, so I might try to get a small bad of higher quality food as a supplement.
Thanks again for all of the suggestions!
