I am not good with comforting words. I can only be grateful to you looking for ways to extend Prince's life . One of my girl is also on Artemisinin besides being on Keto diet. (grade 2) And so glad found someone on the forum who is pro Artemisinin. She has been using it since May 2017 which is about 2 years
I'm glad it is helping your dog. I will do anything that will make my dogs live a quality life. The instant I know my dogs aren't doing well and quality of life is not good and impacting them, that is when I make the call. My dog didn't even know she was sick. So what I can do to extend that I will do.

With that said anything I can offer to help others with their dogs I will offer. The more information people have the better the decisions people can make.

I'm also glad others know about the Artemisinin. No one has ever heard of it before when I've talked about this. My vet isn't a holistic vet, but very progressive. She was the head surgeon at a high end vet and started her own practice a year ago, but when discussing the Artemisinin. She took a few days to look into it and thought it was an interesting possibility. So I'm glad I have a vet that isn't a bit stuffy and too rigid in their thinking. I wish more vets were like this

I totally agree with you. I stick to both classic & holistic vet treatments as much as possible to extend their lives in the best way possible. I heard of Artemisinin also a couple of years ago in Switzerland.Even holistic vets, they differ in idea & practices. So, most of the time I'm really getting confused which protocol to follow or not. Since I want to know what I am doing, I decided to study also holistic veterinary. Am I going to be a vet ? No. But, at least I want to have a better idea what I'm offering to my dogs on their plate. It's tooo much responsibility

It's best to be as educated as much as possible. That way you will have a better knowledge to ask questions of your vet. Plus it keeps you vet in their toes!
That's for sure. Some vets don't like it. However, my children have only 1 life. And imagine the responsibility of my rescue dogs. I am sure I have done so many mistakes and accepted wrong treatments taking each vet's diagnosis as bible. They have a very difficult job. We expect too much from them. They cannot know everything. However, they should not either pretend. And I always stick to the vet which does not claim to be the best but who is wise and open minded enough to think throughly, discuss all options with the dog's owner and if necessary forward to another vet. As Bertrand Russel said " The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts."
