Natalie,

I am sorry to hear of Jack's condition. I am a big fan of Standard Process but I have not looked into a Taurine supplement, however, where I did hear of this supplement was on Monica Segal's site. She is a huge fan, and has a supplement on her website.

Www.monicasegal.com/taurine.html

I have not had the need to order, nor am I familiar with anyone, but it is a site that I trust.

Keeping Jack in my prayers and thoughts.

Barb

We started the CoQ10 about a week ago and we ordered taurine from LifeExtension. It arrived yesterday and we will start it in a few days. Wanted him to have some time on the CoQ10 before adding in another supplement. So far, I don't see any side effects from CoQ10.

Overall, he seems well. He's going on fairly long walks these days. He just... slowed down back when I first started to worry about him. Subtle changes.

Hoping it helps Natalie. Always love the approach of spacing things out so you know what's working.
Hope Jack got some great presents this year

We started the taurine - no obvious side effects or problems with appetite.

We have all our senior pugs (10) on CoQ10 (Ubiquinol), have never had any negative reaction to it. Hope Jack has a great New Year along with his owner!

Hi Natalie!

When I popped in over here last night to check on one of our joint forum members, I saw these updates about Jack. I'm afraid I have no advice to offer, but I do have plenty of well wishes! I surely hope things will stabilize quickly for you guys.

With my warmest regards to you and a gentle pat for Jack,
Marianne
