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.
Unfortunately I live in a very small town, and have exhausted my income so no wild meats. I do however feed her spinach. I stated lettuce before but It's actually spinach. I also feed her 1 whole egg with shell for some calcium.
