  1. Hey everybody! This is my first post. My older boy, Cooper, is 4 and a half, and we've had him for over a year. About 2-3 months ago, he rapidly and suddenly lost a LOT of weight (he went from a healthy 75 lbs. to about 62 lbs) and he has also starting going #2 in the house, which is honestly pretty shocking as he's always been perfectly housebroken. He's got no energy and is clearly uncomfortable. We brought him to the vet and his blood, stool, and urine came back clean. We've been following all of the vet's suggestions--we've been giving him pepcid, we've increased his food intake quite
  2. Hi all, New grey owner here! Have posted once about bonding but having some health issues we need advice on please. We have had our 3 y/o boy about 11 weeks now. He came to us at a weight of 82 lbs and his racing weight was 80 lbs. He had mostly soft stool from the beginning with some with slight form. We put him on eukanba when we first got him, which was a switch from Purina dog chow adult from the rescue group. He was put on doxy for about a month because his white cell count was high and the vet thought maybe he had tick borne disease. He also was diagnosed with hooks, which

  4. Our 6-year-old female greyhound Zoe was diagnosed with Protein Losing Enteropathy in April. Backstory: Zoe had been having diarrhea on and off, but nothing serious, and then I came home from work one day and she looked like she had swallowed a watermelon she was so swollen. Got her to the vet, and the fluid was ascites. They did bloodwork, and found her total protein levels were low, as was the albumin, and the vet suspected PLE. They did an x-ray of her heart, and drew more blood (B12 level and some more detailed liver values). B12 was low, so we started supplementing. Heart appeare
  5. I don't post on here but am desperately looking for help. Maybe someone has had the same experience...hopefully not for you and your pup. Murphy will be 11 on May 13, 2016. He has been losing weight since Dec 2015. Was at 90.4 pounds and March 3 was at 79.0 pounds. Appetite very poor and lethargic. No diarrhea now but did have some in December. I have tried eggs, chicken breast , pumpkin, chicken broth over kibble, peanut butter with and without kibble. As a last resort I made satin balls last night. He tried a little of a satin ball last night but refused them this morning. Xrays
  6. We have been having some issues with Teddy, our nine year old boy. He has been favoring his right rear leg recently and has lost ten pounds. He is avoiding steps (but has always hated steps, ever since he came to us). The only finding on x-rays (under sedation) was some 'flattening' of the head of the femur. No other signs of possible osteosarcoma were present. Our vet didn't really know what to make of this finding, and thinks it could be from a possible old injury or osteoarthritis. All his lab/urine studies came back within normal limits. The vet feels that this is not something serious or
  7. Hi everyone, Winnie, who just turned 4, has been having soft stool for the past three weeks or so. It started with a bout of explosive diarrhea, which resolved relatively quickly after I put her on a rice and pumpkin diet for a few days. But then every time I tried switching to her normal kibble her stool will get totally loose, unless I mix it with massive amounts of pumpkin. I have been feeding her Zignature (grain-free, potato-free, limited ingredient) for about 6 months with good results and I don’t know what could have suddenly gone wrong, assuming the problem is her kibble. I tried s
  8. Kipper's become a conundrum. The horrible corns that we hull are not the issue now. He's got food allergies and we did a full-blown food challenge his first year to isolate the allergies. (most grains including rice, beef, mild intolerance for chicken but not duck or turkey, fish no allergies but poor coat and weight, pork great coat and weight, duck great coat and weight, turkey good coat and weight). For five years, all was fine except he's an extreme picky eater. His hero was the famous Breakfast with Bill. And veggies of any type -- even potatoes -- are disgusting in his opinion,
  9. Will drive me nuts using incomplete sentences, but will do so to detail as much as possible. Greytly appreciate anyone's feedback/suggestions... Our 12 yr old Grey girl, Molly, vomiting & diarrhea started Feb 1st. No more vomiting other than that 1st day; diarrhea every time she poops--sometimes squirting out (no visible blood to date), frequent nausea; still eating (better the last coupla days); on bland diet since issues started--boiled chickn & rice, canned i/d or canned Iams intestinal . Molly has lost at least 8# so far, is losing muscle strength & is more unstable on her
  10. I've posted about our poor guy Mika and his chronic diarrhea before. We're still having problems, and so far he's done the best on home cooked meals. The main question I have is how much to feed him - I can't find any information about how much food he should get. Background: We got Mika in December, and he was a bit underweight (68lbs; racing weight 72lbs) and having pudding poop while on the food his foster family gave him (Purina One Lamb & Rice). I tried gradually switching him onto Iams Lamb & Rice (which our other grey eats) and when that didn't work, tried the green bag
