    Not sure if it would help but definately worth an email to find out.

    I swear by Pooch and Mutts bionic biotics. Brilliant stuff, with a multitude of benefits.:D

    Mine has, not an exact diagnosis but my vet was 99% sure. We cut all cereals, wheat maize etc out of her diet, put her on a raw diet (read raw feeding diary) and put a spoonful of natural probiotic yoghurt in her food daily. After 2 years of little bowel control messing in the house and horrible runs we have had the best three weeks with her ever. She is only pooing 2 to three times a day and she is so much better. Cereals can irritate the bowel and are found in quite a lot of dog foods and the majority of treats hence us gonig raw i know exaclty what she is getting. Oh and fish4dogs so a cereal free range of treats.

    Yes I had one that nearly died from it. All dogs react to different things in their diet, so you have to find out what is triggering yours. One food at a time, strictly no treats or scavenging.
    This article is the best I've found explaining it all

    Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) in Dogs

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask :)

    My cat has it. She's on a very strict diet and that seems to more or less control it, although I doubt she'll ever be 100%.

    Yes! My coydog was diagnosed at about 1 year. After several $$$ test they finally diagnosed her. We have her on Fromm grain free and a little boiled chicken 3x a day. They put her on prednesone and must test her liver and kidneys ever year. Prednesone can be very damaging, so we keep up on her tests. We also got Healthy Paws pet insurance, best decision ever! Best of luck with your baby!

    Hi and welcome. Did you know you are responding to a post that is over 7 years old? The OP has probably sorted their issue out now and certainly hasn't frequented the forum for a very long time.

    OK. It's just that you have cut and pasted the same response on 7 old threads. It just comes across as though you are trying to promote the pet insurance.

    Consider this your first warning.

    For a supposed 61 year old you post like a petulant teenager.
