Guest Wasabi303 Posted December 1, 2015 Share Posted December 1, 2015 Okay I am completely stumped. Wasabi and I have been doing the diet run around for about a year and a half. She had terrible gas when I got her and after months of trial and error we settled on IAMS green bag and Olewo's Carrots. This took care of the gas and she has been eating that consistently for about a year. Over the summer we tried going 1/2 raw. She loved this but it was too unpredictable for me. I had a good source for chicken, but every now and then she would get sick (and my sick a mean waking me up in the middle of the night urgent need to go outside then howling while having terrible diarrhea. I now affectionately refer to this phenomenon as The Screaming **s). So we went back to IAMS. But the random Screaming **s continue (and yes they did happen sometimes before our adventure in raw food). She will be fine for weeks and weeks, we will be in the middle of a bag of kibble, no diet changes, nothing, and she will get sick. On one such occasion I took a sample into the vet, it got tested and the bacteria in her gut were way off balance so we got some antibiotics and probiotics and she was soon back to normal. That occasion I thought we had a cause because she had eaten a piece of cat poo on one of our walks before I could catch her. I am now extremely vigilant. (BTW this little adventure cost me $200, which is why I don't take her to the vet whenever it happens anymore. It almost always clears up in 24hrs) I am a very clean and organized person. Wasabi never goes on walks with anyone else, trashcans in the house are all hidden from her, and there is nothing she could be eating. So what is happening? I am not sure if this is related or not, but sometimes she will be asleep or relaxing in her bed and she will suddenly whine really intensely for a moment or too, like she is in pain. She then just stops and goes back to sleep. But it is very clearly not a dream, as she was doing it a moment ago and i went over to try and figure out what was going on and she was still whining and standing up. Any advice? Does my dog just have the most temperamental stomach ever? Am I doing something wrong? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
