Appointment With A Saim Specialist Tomorrow

Recommended Posts

Since Beanie passed Nadir's bladder problems have started again full force. They actually started prior to that, but it was hard to determine if it was him or her because of the prednisone she was on. This problem has always been linked to a food he has been eating. If I eliminate the food the problem goes away. The problem I have now is he is reacting to everything I feed him. He does okay for about a week then the problem starts again. These are the foods I have tried so far that I have been through with him that cause his bladder problems; rice, fish, beef, lamb, chicken, turkey, quail, venison and pork. I essentially have run out of options to feed him. What I don't understand is why is he reacting to all these foods. I've got an appointment with a SAIM specialist at Auburn tomorrow morning. I hope she can given me some answers and some way to help my boy. Having to clean up after him is not what bothers me; the pain it causes him does however.

Homecooked food or commercial food?

{{{{{HUGS}}}}} for you and Nadir! Hope you can figure something out!


Does he react to just the protein source or the carb source or both? Just about the only thing you haven't tried is a vegan dog diet (they do exist, but take some work to make sure the dog gets enough nutrients).

Oh, Judy and Nadir, I wish I had some info or advice for you! You know I'm thinking about you a lot, and hoping that you can find something that will give Nadir some relief. I feel so bad for the sweet guy. I know he can't have the lovely Burpdog treats that he just sent to Lydia, so I am filled with gratitude each time Lydia and her sisters and brother enjoy one.

Please let us know how he's doing, and Lydia says she will keep sending out "telepafic good thots" to her sweetie.
