    Default Salmonella

    Since we had Tess about month ago she's had a diarrhea issue and we tried everything and I mean everything. Thanks to Bella'sMom she has even held my hand through everything. My vet talk to the store owner who we got Tess from just so happens that 2 other dogs in the same liter have the same symptoms. The other 2 dog went to Florida so there Vet did a culture and out they had salmonella. So my family and I are hoping our Tess girl is moving on the right track of good health and nothing serious. So when I add to my family be asking all of you for advise

    Default Re: Salmonella

    Dogs are usually very tolerant of mega bacterial load. So salmonella and such don't affect them like it does humans. But, if your dog already has a compromised immune system then salmonella can be a problem. What I'm trying to say is... If your dog is sick because of the salmonella, that's not the only problem. You may have bigger problems.

    Man, I sound like such a wet blanket! Hope your baby gets better soon!

    Just keep fighting for the correct total diagnosis. Don't accept just Salmonella. Knowledge is power and you will figure it out.

    I would go to a different vet if you haven't already done so.

    Have you done a food trial on her? I'm thinking maybe her tummy's not agreeing with the Blue Wilderness.

    Blue Wilderness is pretty good food... but a month of diarrhea on it is not good. Do you notice if she's scratching a lot, red/pink face, etc.? This diarrhea could be an allergy. But, man, this would be where a good vet could really help.

    If you want to try a food switch just to eliminate the possibility of it being the food, you just go and find another good food (there's been a lot of members here lately that are trying out the Earthborne Holistic Grain-Free brand as it is cheaper than the other highly rated food including Blue Wilderness) and slowly switch her over. I'd go for a 3 week transition - week 1 - replace 1/4 of the Blue Wilderness with the new food. If there are no issues then week 2 - replace 1/2 of the Blue Wilderness with the new food. If there are no issues move on to week 3 - replace 3/4 of BW with the new food until finally you only serve the new food on week 4. Of course, if the problem persists or becomes worse past the 3rd week, you're going to have to make a decision whether to stay with the old food or continue looking for another new food to try. It can be really tedious especially if in the end, you find that the problem is really not the food.

    Okay, sorry, I just don't have much good news here. Grrrr. How about if we get a picture of sweet Tess, then we can ooooh and aaaaahh and have reason to feel loads better?
