Holistic Remedies Alongside Conventional Anti-Fungal Medication for Dogs
My question is very specific to medication and using additional holistic support to accompany the traditional medication...
We just started our dog on anti-fungal medication (Itraconazole) for a respiratory fungal infection. On one of your pages, you mentioned there are not holistic cures/remedies for fungal infections like valley fever, but that it is a good idea to supplement the medication with immune support.
We have a product called Del-Immune V which is a probiotic immune system support. We also have OL-Immune drops that contain olive leaf and echinacea.
In general, do you have any guidelines for how to combine these remedies with the meds? For example, do you give them a certain number of hours apart so that the medication doesn't interfere with the probiotics? Would there be any reason not to give a probiotic immune support in the case of a fungal infection?
We are also looking into the other products that are linked on your site.
Thanks for any guidelines or additional suggestions.
