    Default Audrey Update

    A normal bowel movement after 1.5 weeks of noxious diarrhea. Finally! Now we just have to wait 3 days until restarting her meds. Still has the cyst on her foot, but we started her Epsom salt soaks last night, so hoping she gets better soon!

    FML Spoke too soon about the poop. We skipped her Immodium dose this AM since she had a solid BM but now its right back to the runs. *cries* Back on immodium. She has to have solid BMs for 3 days while being OFF the immodium before we can start her back on her meds for her skin infection and mange. Going on 2 weeks of runs now. She had 2 decent poops and got my hopes up and now its right back to runs.

    Aww..I've been thinking about you and hoping things had turned around....hang in there you'll get her straightened out.....just a thought my Schultz (as a puppy until he was over a year would have terribly runny poops on every kind of dog food) home cooking straightened his system out.....or it was just easier to digest....he now is on a combination of dehydrated raw/high protein kibble and home cooked meals but it took a long time to get his system ready to tolerate dog food....hope she feels better real soon.

    My goal in life is to be as good a person as my dog thinks I am ~ author unknown

    When you said her poos were "back to normal" were they completely formed? Like Tootsie roll formed? If they were still soft serve, they had not made it back yet. If you have ruled out parasites and no food changes for a long time...I think you should check out her digestive system. Here are some specific questions to ask: Is she food aggressive? Starving all the time? Is she loosing weight? Lethargic? Are her poos yellowish/gray or light in color? If it is yes to any of these, please go to www.epi4dogs.com. Remember they can have all or just a few of these symptoms. PM me if you have any other questions.

    Always with me

    I'm sorry if this has been asked and answered but have they done a complete CBC on her?

    Her stool was pretty much formed, just a slight layer of "slime" on the outside. Not really slime like mucous, but soft poop coating a solid BM center. She is not food agressive or starving all the time. Her weight is normal and despite her NUMEROUS health issues she is actually very active and playful. Her poop is "normal" in color (as in brown). I have not heard of EPI before, so thank you for letting me know! I don't think that is what she has, though. I really think it might have just been a BAD reaction to the chicken because she was totally fine the first 1.5 weeks that we had her (before starting her on the raw chicken). She did ok on both raw and on kibble until we tried the chicken. As long as she is taking her immodium she is having solid BMs. I am hoping to try weaning her off the immodium after a day or two. She was tested for parasites recently and was negative.
