About Me

I am currently "OWNED" by Doc aka Bubby Wubby, a solid black GSD that is a great big baby who carries a jolly ball around as a pacifier.  Doc came to us May 2014 at 6 weeks old from a breeder and his first week home he was diagnosed with coccidia and a bladder infection.  A few weeks after that he was tested for EPI - that test was negative, however, he was diagnosed with SIBO.  After 3 months on Metronidazole it was cleared up and he was a happy, healthy, extremely energetic little boy.  He weighed 90lbs in January (actually 95 - vet's scale is wrong).  He began losing weight slowly, a pound or 2 a month until we started basic obedience training at a local pet store - the trainer noticed he was losing a signifcant amount of weight.  Within 1 1/2 months he had lost 14lbs.  I questioned the vet about numerous times and was told it's better for a GSD to be thin.  May 1, after 3 days of diahrea he vommitted and we rushed to the vet.  He was given the general tests, put on gastro rx food.  After seeing him eat his poop several times I again questioned the vet only to be told it was a behavior issue - funny because he never had a behavior issue before.  Ultimately I asked for him to be tested for EPI again and this time it was positive, along with SIBO.  We have another dog, Roxy (lab/collie mix best we can tell) who rescued us with the white cross on her chest - she's my perfect princess.  When Doc was three months old we lost my beloved Boston Terrier, Bugsy aka Boo Boo (14yrs), who had been through more medical procedures than a dog should have to bear - he was a fighter and the most perfect dog ever - even after two major strokes he knew the rules and obeyed them.  In my heart I believe Bugsy was paving the way for Doc and he left us so that we would be able to take care of Doc.

Thank you so much for her help....I am so happy to have discovered this sight and this means so much to me to have people like you who can help. My vet really hasn't dealt with this type of thing and it is great to meet people who have. Becky

Maybe you already tried this, but i saw about the yeast problems of Doc. Did you ever tried apple cider vinager mixed with water. To put on his paws and muzzle? It often helps. Also coconutoil helps against yeast.
For his muzzle you can also use white vinager mixed in water

Good Morning everyone: Thank you for everyone for all the great advice for my GS Rain. I have been feeding him a grain free diet along with fresh cow pancreas to which I also add powdered pancreas enzyme that I purchased at the health food store along with salmon oil for his fur & folate which I also purchased at the health food store. Rain is doing much better. His poops are averaging 1 or 2 a day instead of 6 or 7. The colour of the poop is also changing colour.. His fur is much better looking & he has gained some weight. I am just waiting for the b-12 pills to arrive from wonderlabs so I can start adminstering those into his food as well. Again thank you everyone that has given advice. I really appreciate it. This is a terrific sight & I am very happy to be a member of....

Thank you Jennifer

Madelon- I just sent you a message from DiRepucci.DiReppucci .

HI- I wanted to give you an update and was thinking of posting online as well about Quincy's progress. I would love your thoughts. I am happy and incredibly relieved to report that Quincy is recovering. He has been mis-diagnosed from the beginning by the doctors. I must say, the EPI website was a HUGE help for us in time of need, and I will always direct people to this site since there is SO MUCH great information available. If it was not for the website, I would not have insisted on the EPI testing, and I would not have been so diligent about journeling and monitoring his stool, even with 4 recent fecal samples coming back negative. After 2 rounds of deworming (wow, the amount of and different types of worms this guy had was enormous), and approaching our 3rd round starting tomorrow, Quincy now weighs 21 pounds, no longer shows signs of cramping, needs very little enzymes in his food, is off tylan and flagyl, and nearly sleeps through each night. It feels like a mir...
