|So I have looked all over the internet, and everything seems to say the same thing - The 'Aller G3' supplement has no side effects.
My dog has been on this supplement at the recommendation of the vet (I work there, so I have easy access to the vets), as he has an ongoing allergy problem and I'm trying various methods to help reduce them or eliminate them before going to a cutting-edge dermatologist who has a specific injection for environmental allergies in the area. (This injection is quite pricey, and I'd like it to be one of the last methods I use, although it is looking progressively more and more like I will be moving in that direction)
Recap of my dog - Allergies expressed in his skin, primarily between the pads of his feet and between his toes, and on the sides of his jaw. Have done multiple diet changes, protein isolations, etc. We were in Alaska (usually in Oregon) for 3 months last summer and the allergies did not go away (he was also on a completely different diet during those 3 months as well, and due to the last of heartworm, ticks, and fleas, he was not on flea meds or heartworm meds). The only time they went away was from December to the beginning of February, although we had him on a course of antibiotics and a strick skin cleaning protocol and he was wearing an e-collar 24-hours a day for weeks. So it's hard to tell if it was improved by the season change or by how I was handling his allergies at that time.
Anyways, he was on a raw only diet until 2 weeks ago when I started to shift him onto a half kibble diet and a new raw diet that are both gluten free.
The big thing is has has been on probiotics since November and Aller G3 capsules for about 60 days. He vomited his dinner up about a month ago, which is really odd - he's not a vomiter, and he only did it once. (Cleaning partially digested raw food that now has the consistancy of a puree out of the carpet is incredibly challenging, btw)
Tonight, he did it again, and it was his dinner again (this time I was able to grab a plastic bag that was magically within reach and caught it all!).
So now I'm wondering why he is occasionally vomiting his dinner. (I am 100% certain he has not eaten anything other than his kibble and supplements today.) And they've both been within the last month - the newest item to his diet that would explain both vomit episodes is the Aller G3 capsulre, which he gets with his dinner.
He has also been have random episodes of reverse hiccups, which is not normal, and those started within the last month as well. I know fish oil can cause gastro upset in humans as well as burping issues, but every website claims the Aller G3 capsule has no side effects.
Has anyone else used this supplement? And has anyone else had problems with it? Everything seems to say that it's not the supplement, but when putting all the pieces together, my dog seems to be saying otherwise...
