    Did they determine that it's definitely mega colon? Chunk turned out not to have it ... We think it was the grain free diet; since we switched off grain free, he's been fine.

    Sorry I can't offer any advice or help regarding this, but I learned something new on here again. Great article from JAKEISGREAT. Just want to offer my thoughts and prayers and send my love, I hope your baby gets better soon. Keep us posted as to how she's doing.

    Treatment


    Most patients affected with megacolon will need to be hospitalized for initial fluid therapy, both to rehydrate the body and to correct electrolyte imbalances. The colon can then be gently evacuated. Your veterinarian will administer anesthesia to your dog, and then manually inject warm water enemas and water-soluble jelly, allowing for the easy extraction of feces with a gloved finger or sponged forceps. If the problem is recurrent or especially severe, and is not responding to medical management, as in the case of irreversible colonic inertia, surgery may be necessary to repair the colon. Most dog can be cured of recurrent megacolon after undergoing subtotal colectomy surgery.
    **muah** Thank you.

    I have no experience with this, but from what I have read it sounds like it is manageable.

    My baby is home. She has passed 10 lbs of bowel!!! Now the doctor wants to keep a close watch on her. X-rays every couple of days and small meals. This has been a nightmare. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers!!
