He was operated on & internal biopsies were taken & the results are back that he has lymphangiectasia & protein losing enteropathy. The poor baby has certainly gone through so much ..he is still very very weak & has lost so much weight that it's heartbreaking to see but we are still hoping for him to make a recovery as there is no way we are giving up hope. Will post again at some point with another update, sorry again for keeping you waiting. X
    Thank you.... We will all be praying for sweet Wilson and your family

    Thank you for the update, we were all praying & hoping for good news. While the diagnosis isn't the best, its also not the worst. Now that they know what he's dealing with you can start treatment. From what I read, this can be managed with a special diet & meds - we are all still praying for that baby. Hugs to Mr. Wilson.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Hi, I have a dog now diagnosed with the same issue. Did you try the Herbsmith probiotic and, if so, what was the outcome. Hoping the puppy recovered.

    Hi @daviesdru and sorry you are here on such a scary note! I think your best bet is to make a new thread with you questions. Hopefully some folks with experience with this issue will be able to advise you. Best of luck! What is your pups name? and we love pictures!

    If lymphangiectasy is a reason of PLE, you must feed him very low fat diet, in fact, high protein is also difficult to digest. Fat absorbs via lymph vessels, so itís not good for him. The best would be chicken and rice or potato for now. I would Discuss with doctor therapy with prednisone, and metronidazole (tablets) which is antibacterial and anti protozoan med which also facilitates healing of intestinal wall. There is data that antibacterial therapy can help in some cases, so I would give metronidazole a try.
    Diet you can assess after 2 weeks, so donít be discouraged if it wonít help right now. If his blood test after 2 weeks shows higher level of albumin, then you know he is improving.
    Dont give probiotics now, his system is so upset they wonít help and can even do worse. I would recommend though to give him this capsules with food

    https://www.amazon.com/Herbsmith-Mic.../dp/B009EUZ9LW

    they contain enzymes for digestion ( he cannot really digest himself now and you can see him losing weight, these enzymes will do the job for him) and will help him to absorb more nutrients. They are quite effective.
