Meet Archie.  Archie is my 6 year old blue Great Dane.  Archie and I are BFFs.  I love this dog so much that I would trade in my entire record collection if it meant a long, healthy life for him.  A

rchie has a bad infection on his toe and has been on antibiotics, and other assorted medications for the last 4-5 months.  Archie has a great vet, and I trust her a lot, but she's talking about possibly amputating Archie's infected toe.  My wife mentioned the idea of trying a holistic vet (this one happens to be North of Grand Rapids).  Does anyone know anything about holistic animal treatments?  I'm not opposed to the idea at all, but Archie's my buddy, and my wife and I just want what's best for him.  If you've had good/bad luck with this, please let me know.  Email me at
