Another option is to get some venison. If you can get some whole duck or goose, then she'll be getting 100% nutrition because you can feed your dog the bones for calcium and other important minerals. I, personally, am not a fan of chemical supplements, I prefer to get my nutrition through natural means.

Another important mineral that I didn't see MaxaLisa mention was magnesium. It is important for cell wall health. Halibut, spinach, sunflower seeds are rich in this mineral (as are raw bones).

MaxaLisa has a great point, the immune system needs to be strengthened to help in the healing.
