    Yes, this is what the vet said I had to do. While I somewhat bought what she was saying...i couldn't help but snicker every time she said "hot dog" hehehe

    Anyhoo, so like I said...i went to a chinese medicine vet.

    Oakley was prescribed "shen calmer" & a crockpot diet. Anyone ever heard of either? I can post the recipe for his diet if someone requests...it is supposed to be all 'cooling' foods.

    I bought all the ingredients, but can't make it til tomorrow cause it has to be in the pot for 8 hrs. We'll see how it goes!

    These pills are REALLY freaking annoying though. I have to give 5pills/2x day!! I have to hide everyone really well, cause Oakley is the master at finding them...so I just ended up with my fingers covered in PB, lol.

    LOL! That whole phrase, "cooling my hot dog . . . " just sounds so WRONG :rofl1:

    It's going to be fascinating to see how this goes, though. :)

    Post the recipe! It will be interesting, especially if others try it and compare results.

    mary was a hot dog too. There are three acupressure points that the vet I went to showed me that will help release the heat. I wish I was closer to show you but the vet might be able to when you go in.

    ahh make me type it out (jk jk)

    Here it is:

    16 oz turkey
    16 oz whitefish OR pork (i'm using pork, cause she said the fish smells HORRIBLE)
    16 oz ground beef
    4 tbps EVOO
    3 cups total of spinach/collard greens/green beans, other greens (another q i need to ask...cause I am using canned...that doesn't translate very well...so I just used 1 can)
    1 can kidney beans
    1.5 cups carrots
    1/2 tsp dried turmeric
    1/2 tsp dried mustard
    1 clove uncooked garlic
    7.5 tums (250 mg strength)

    Put it all in the pot, add 4 cups of water...let cook for 8 hrs. After than, add 1 cup barley, then mix it up with a potato masher. Let it steam for another hour....then EAT..mmmmmmmmm TASTY!

    I'm supposed to give Oakley 3/4 cup 2x/day
