Re: Another Finn Update

I should add that even if Miles retests positive for Giardia, I'm not giving him Metronidazole again. Once was too much and I was hesitant to use it at all because I feared it would destroy beneficial bacteria. It didn't change how his poop looked at all anyway. Finn got that several times in the be...

Re: Another Finn Update

Thanks Judith. The vet is unsure what's going on and wants to wait to run another fecal for Giardia at the end of this week. A week after he finished the medication. I'm the one that wondering if it's SIBO.

Re: Another Finn Update

Hi, I’ve been meaning to come back and update this old thread and I was surprised to see my last entry was Sept 4, 2019. Sadly we had to let Finn go on Sept 4, 2020. The GI issues only got worse. I tried fecal transplant pills from the US and I think they helped and bought us more time, but then Cov...

Re: Sid after a round of antibiotics ?

Hi, we're in Canada and got Tylan from our vet. The first time the vet pharmacy compounded it (put the power into capsules for us) and it cost a lot more (twice the cost) for that service. The next time we got the powder in a bottle (still not what I would call a cheap drug) and we put it in capsule...

Re: Another Finn Update

I think the suspect additive in that raw rabbit meal was eggs, everything else was a vegetable. Makes sense since he reacts to chicken and turkey. We've been feeding him cooked rabbit and plain raw rabbit and have not noticed a reaction yet. Soon we may branch out into other proteins he's not had to...

Re: Another Finn Update

We lasted 7 (out of the 10) days on Baytril. Finn stopped eating and drinking, and lost 3 lbs so I said that was enough. I will never use that antibiotic again. Luckily after stopping the med, he went back to eating almost immediately. I got some answers via blood work and I've realized a few things...

Re: Another Finn Update

You'd think I'd learn by now not to get my hopes up. Finn seemed perkier this morning and more like himself again, but he refused the raw food he ate yesterday. He's lost a couple lbs since last week. Had blood taken and maybe tests with show something. Until we are off the Baytril, which could stil...

Re: Another Finn Update

Maybe they are related :) We couldn't stop him from drinking disgusting mud puddles or licking our deck after it rained but he won't drink standing water in the house. :roll: It has to be fresh or terribly dirty, but no in between. Let's call him quirky! Once the snow falls he will only eat snow out...

Re: Another Finn Update

No he's not on Metronadazole. He got that before he got Tylosin when he used to have diarrhea. He's eaten raw rabbit meal a couple times now with no allergic reaction. He liked it, so it was nice to see him eat something. The Internist emailed me and she is against feeding raw because of increased r...

Re: Another Finn Update

That's an interesting article Patsy. Thanks for posting. I wouldn't be surprised if he has a variety of deficiencies. How can a dog be deficient in B12 but not other things too? Do vets test for vitamin/mineral deficiencies other than B12/folate? I'd love to have some answers from test results. Finn...
