  1. Thanks for the replies. Looks like I have to reconsider and likely ditch the Pro Plan we have been using for now, as my dog who eats it has been put on a vet diet for serious GI problems status post rabies vaccination. She was PERFECT before the vaccine.
  2. For those of you who have started feeding a new Pro Plan kibble formula with probiotics, has anyone had issues? I’m planning on a slow transition regardless, I’m just wondering .... . Thanks
  3. Oh god, I am so sorry. That’s just devastating.
  4. In addition to a good exam and whatever other assessments your vet recommends, I’d also ask the vet specifically about a full thyroid panel. Sometimes sudden aggression is linked to hypothyroid.
  5. I’d like to think that these sorts of supplements help, and I am wishful enough to possibly use them again in the future, but I just haven’t seen results in any of my dogs. my vet says, “probably won’t hurt, but might not help, either”
  6. A rubbery soft plastic horse curry comb. Soft on skin but effective.
  7. Maybe that’s why they’re called “grey” hounds 🤪 ...
  8. Borborygmi! My IBD dog gets like this when his IBD is bothering him. Squelches, inappetence, nausea, obsessive grass eating, vomit, and usually stool issues a little later. It was SUPER bad before we got him diagnosed and on IBD meds.
  9. Hi Bizzibee- What’s going on with your dog? Edit: sorry, I just saw in another thread that your dog had no “GI symptoms” but had weight loss, low folate, and low cobalamin, and that you had started a hydrolyzed diet last month, which caused worsening of stool. Have you done any further testing or have you tried anything else?
  10. Glad she’s been better eating only the hydrolyzed food. Metronidazole is an antibiotic, but it also has anti inflammatory properties. I just meant that if the hydrolyzed food doesn’t continue to maintain things, you might consider the longer trial of metronidazole, as recommended by your vet.
  11. Hi Busderpuddle, How’s your girl today? Among the other many things I’ve learned having traveled a long, hard, and actually totally worth it (worth it because we’ve had this time with our boy) journey with an IBD dog for the past 6.5 years, is that upper GI inflammation causes vomiting! The fact that your dog has confirmed (biopsied) upper GI inflammation leads me to believe that its probably the upper GI inflammation that’s causing the vomiting. Treating the inflammation will help control the vomiting. It’s worth trying medical therapy if the hydrolyzed food isn’t cont

  13. Did she have GI biopsies when she was scoped? Stomach, small intestine and large intestine? If biopsies weren’t done, that’s what I’d suggest next. Just my opinion, but this sounds a lot like IBD (my dog has IBD). X-rays, ultrasound and standard blood tests can all be normal in a dog with IBD. You might test her blood protein/albumin (because of the weight loss), folate and B12. But those can also be normal in a dog with IBD.
