Re: Firming Up Manure

Hi Cindy,

Please keep me posted on how things are going with Succeed. Yes, you can increase the B1 to 2500 mg/day.

All the best,

Thank you Dr. Getty. My vet examined a fecal sample and found no parasites nor any bacteria that would indicate an issue, which was helpful to know. I have been giving her 1,000 mg of B1 for a couple of months now. We are now looking to start her on Succeed to see if that helps with both the ulcer and manure issue. I can also increase the B1 daily.
Thanks much!
