dodgy tums

My poor baby is unwell and has been for some time now. he's very loose and at times blood is present. He been to the vets and was prescribes tablets and a paste and vet thought that he had colitis and would clear up in a couple of days but gave extra tablets incase of a flair up. Unfortunately he's back on them again after only 3 days and is back on a light diet. Does anyone have any other suggestions on what to try.
He lost weight and can't really afford to lose anymore as we'd just managed to start bulking him up!!!!!

Please help

A very worried Amanda and an even sadder Chaos

Re: dodgy tums

Aww bless him.

First thought is ............ is he eating anything he shouldn't do? Sasha kept having this and we discovered that she was finding mushrooms in the garden!! He isn't eating your plants or anything is he Amanda? Or drinking from stagnant puddles .... that's Sasha's favourite trick!

My last girl used to get sore tums and we just starved her for 24 hours and then gave her rice and/or chicken with a bit of egg - but that was down to her age.

Other than that - I can't help sorry.

Really really hopes he gets better soon!

Re: dodgy tums

Hi Amanda

Had a similair experience with Molly when she was about 12 months old for a period of about 6 weeks.

Has chaos been wormed recently???

We changed Mollys diet and fed her boiled chicken breast and rice until it cleared up. The rice is very natural and provides loads of carb's for energy and the chicken has a good balance of protein without being too rich a meat ensuring that the gut / stomach is not upset.

The above diet was suggested by our vet who I have the utmost confidence in and a lot of respect for her professional opinion and diagnosis. As is usually the case her advice was spot onand within a week or so molly was no longer passing blood or having an upset stomach.

Worth checking Chaos does not have access to anything undesirable as per Karens advice.

Good luck and I hope Chaos is soon back to normal.

Take care

PAul

Re: dodgy tums

Hi Amanda thought you were going to go back to the vets if it didnt clear up this time. We are heading off to see the nice vet man on Monday as Heskey keeps going off his food, has grumbling tummy and eats more grass than a cow! Fortunately he is neither sick nor skittery, but is loosing weight, so thought we had better get him checked out. Thank god for the first time in my life i have dog insurance.

Re: dodgy tums

Good grief it must be something in the water - probably quite literally!

Sasha was off her food yesterday and day before and has been a bit runny.

Today she was rushing around the garden, dragging her bottom like her life depended on it and desperately trying to go to the loo. When she did manage to expel something, with was just blood and mucus.

Rapid phone call to the vet and one appointment later, guess what ................ she has colitus!! She has anti-inflammatories and anti-biotics - starving today and light diet in small amounts for 24 hours.

Apparently though the vet says that there is a lot bacteria around at the moment which is giving dogs colitus which may explain why Chaos keeps getting it.

Does Chaos drink from puddles etc while he is out - Sasha does!

Re: dodgy tums

Good news Chaos is much better.
I've put him back on eukanuba after futher scrambled eggs and pasta and he's now eating as if he's never seen food before!!!
Think the culprit has been too much good living when he's been at my sister's for his hols so she's had her knuckles well and truely rapped and warned again not too do it.
Chaos is havin a weekend there next week and if he comes back poorly she's paying the vets bill and cleaning up his deposits!!!!!

A much happier Amanda :rotflmao:

Re: dodgy tums

Glad to hear Chaos is better.

Sasha is still struggling with her colitis. Did the same as Chaos and went completely squitty as soon as she was back on her Burns. Have put her back on rice today and will see what happens.

Does it take a while for colitis to clear up - I don't remember my last girl suffering with it for this long?

Perhaps I should try the scrambled egg and pasta approach rather than chicken and rice? How long did you give it to Chaos for Amanda?

Re: dodgy tums

I kept him on it for 2-3 days and he seemed to improve even before I gave him eukanuba.

I tried him on chappie when we first got him and a few times since but it goes right through him. The beta chicken and lamb flavours semed to be ok for a while but will try again when this bag is finished.

Liz I'm off to Kate's next weekend as its her 30th birthday so I reckon we may have the odd glass of wine or bottle 3, 5,7 or 9 ha ha

Re: dodgy tums

Hi all
Katie has it too, fortunately not a the mo. Some dogs are just terribly sensitive to anysort of chang in the diet. /some cant take dog biscuits [esp the lovely sausage roll types that they all crave. I had ne Boxer and the only biscuit she could have were plain rich tea, anything else and she was back to the bad colitis. If you have food that agrees stick to it and dont change it or add to it. Somekeep part of the daily ration to one side for "treats" rather than risk upsetting digestion again.

Chaoss mum = Chppie didnt agree with our girl [above] either. If i ere you i wouldnt change his diet if what you are feeding agrees. Katie is fed on tinned dog food [she refuses dry and any time we forced the issue, colitis so maybe she knows better than us what is and what isnt good for her]. We feed her on Winalot tins which seems to be as good a food as any. Just have to watch the teeth on tinned [soft] food.

Hope all your babies are better soon.

Helen

Re: dodgy tums

Chappie - yuck!! Have bad memories of my Mum's lab being fed on that and the resulting wind and mess in the garden! Disgusting stuff but each to their own!

Sasha's colitus seems to have cleared up - thanks for the pasta and egg tip Amanda, I had been just giving her rice and chicken which didn't seem to fill her up.

Anyway, she is now back on her proper food and the best thing is, she has stopped refusing her food and being faddy at mealtimes!! I guess starvation focuses the mind somewhat and she isn't willing to risk missing a meal again!

Re: dodgy tums

Chappie complete doesnt have quite the same devistating effects though it does get a bit windy here at times! I did have a lurcher who couldnt eat meat at all without having the raving runs...ended up feeding him on Vitalin Royal which worked a treat

Re: dodgy tums

Unfortunately chaos's tummy problems have flared up again without warning and if its at all possible i'd say it's marginally worse god love him he's looking very sad for himself - it must be an awful feeling.

I've not given him anything to eat as yet today and was going to go to vets tonight but will leave it till tomorow to see if it'll settle down fingers crossed

Re: dodgy tums

Poor wee soul - something is definitely getting to him? Not the heat Amanda?

If we take Sasha on the beach, she seems to think it is her duty to drink the whole of the Moray Firth! She then comes home, drinks three gallons of water to remove the salt and sand from her system and spends all night weeing! You can always guarantee that she has the runs the next day. I can't understand why she needs to drink the sea water, when we always have a bottle with us.

I hope Chaos feels better soon and doesn't feel too sorry for himself today.

Re: dodgy tums

I've taken CHaos to the vets and he thinks that he has an infection, he doesn't think it's his colitis flaring up which I'm relieved. Caught it early so is on anti-biotics. Poor soul hasn't been allowed anything to eat but i've just cooked him some eggs and pasta so i'm sure he'll scoff the lot.

Got 5 days of meds so hopefully that'll clear it up

Amanda

Re: dodgy tums

To be honest it sounds like an adative alergy. Go for something like James Wellbeloved or Arden Grange. Chicken and rice varity.
It's all pure, no addatives, coulorents or anything. Plus I bet if he's a bit hyper it calms him down. If you want to discuss this any further it's 0131 258 0082. No problems with you phoneing or anyone else for that matter.

Re: dodgy tums

just been reading about all the dodgy tummys!jake used to get them quite alot.tried medication for this that and the other and got no results.in the end i put him on a gluton free diet and have never had a problem since.i also found out through trial and error that starving him for 24 hours made him worse,having nothing in his belly made him rearly uncomfortable,so i used to give him chicken so he at least had a bit of something in his belly.putting him on a gluton free diet has definately sorted the problem out for him.
