Re: Jasper no longer stable

if Hills changed the food formula... that could be it.... it happens ... it is almost like a build up something that is no longer working and then you have a mess. First thing you will want to do while still on the same food is increase the enzymes to compensate for whatever formula change happened ...

Re: Recently diagnosed GSD

Hi Sarah... Sounds like Reva is doing really well..... isn't it wonderful when they start doing better??! Fingers and paws crossed that Revaa dosn't have a relapse in the poo dept once the Oxy course is completed... What we do with Tylan in some cases (to avoid a possible relapse) is to slowly withd...

Re: Ruger - New Case Trying to Stabilize

you are very welcome. Ask the vet if they already ran a CBC blood panel and if they did, ask for a copy of it (and share it here, i'll go thru it for you) .... If they haven't then tell then you want a CBC blood panel run (and when done ask for a copy). I am so sorry for throwing so many things at y...

Re: Ruger - New Case Trying to Stabilize

ahhh... just saw the poo pic.... THANKS. Interesting.... this doesn't look like the typical EPI poo..... it almost looks like gastroenteritis without the pink or purple coloring... so that rules that out too........... but... is your dog drinking enough water? Possible food sensitivity to something?...

Re: Ruger - New Case Trying to Stabilize

no you are not going to fast. this is your dog, your family member and you need to be "invested' in his health... You are not questioning the vet's ability BUT you want a vet that will work with you. Just in case this is EPI in the making....EPI is not a "common" ailment, so a lot of ...

Re: Ruger - New Case Trying to Stabilize

Hi Sallie, Thanks for giving us the background information.... that helps us better help you. Although a TLI score of 13.3 is not EPI.... when you see these kinds of symptoms... then you need to leave the door open that one possibility is that Ruger "might" be working his way to becoming a...
