When you find the article copy it and if needed I can
OCR it, no reason for you to retype it. We will have
to be careful regarding copyright, I think we will
have to just email it to those who want to read it. I
live close to the University of Cincinnati's Med.
School but I'm not sure if they subscribe to vet
periodicals. Anyone live near Ohio State? A lot of vet
cardiologists come from or are associated with that

that my vet gave the OK for raw baby clams for Rudy
but he is asymptomatic. I looked up iodine content and
it s comparable to chicken. Seaweed is off the chart
for iodine as are snacks like tortilla chips.

high in CoQ10. Has anyone had luck feeding raw organ
meats or know of any reason not to feed organ meats? I
am trying to find food sources of nutrients as I don't
want to stress Rudy by pilling anything larger than
