Re: Stable for couple of years, now relapsing

I sympathise with little dog problems, though mine is a hefty 9lb poodle cross, non epi. She had dreadful fleas a couple of years ago, whichFrontline didn’t work on, nor shampoos. I eventually was persuaded by the vet to give her Simparica. He said he’d never seen any dogs with side effects, despite...

Re: Trainee Police Dog Rana - UK

Nature diet has a good reputation. My Marti did well with fishy flavours. Forthglade smuggle peas in, which Epi dogs aren’t good with. Also bear in mind that if you are avoiding chicken, the turkey might be too similar. I guess you might be needing 3 wet packs a day. I hope this works, but I still t...

Re: Trainee Police Dog Rana - UK

Re blood in poo, it is not an epi symptom, because it signifies a sore part of the gut. Epi is the pancreas problem causing the lack of digestive enzymes. But it does happen as well. Jeans question is relevant because bright blood comes from the bum end of the large intestines, and dark red from the...

Re: Poorly poohs

Maybe tylan isn’t effective bug, this bug, ask for oxytetracycline.
It could also be a bacteria from puddles with all the rain we’ve had, loads of animal/ bird poo.
What colour is the poo?
I don’t think extra enzymes will help, the gut spasms just blast everything through.

Re: 10+ weeks of green diarrhea-struggling

What are you feeding at the moment, some vet suggestions don’t help epi. Some dogs can’t cope with chicken at all. You could try fish in your mash Olesia said previously that the green colour indicates fast transit of food. So the guts are thrashing around, and the mucous and blood indicates damage ...

Re: New Member Introduction- Help needed

I hope you catch Jean on the phone , she’s not the least bit intimidating! You name it, Kara had it, and Jeans vet is one of the top gastrointestinal experts in the country. From my experience, Lypex never caused vomiting, so there may be something else happening.it could be a gut infection, acid in...

Re: New Member Introduction- Help needed

Hello to you and Jazz from Sheffield. Flat coated retrievers are beautiful. At last you have the diagnosis , so you will gradually get a full return to condition , once the effects of malnutrition are beaten. It seems heavy going at first, but becomes a routine. Enzymes are for ever, with occasional...

Re: Tylan uk

You will have had the cost of the actual prescription included in that bill. About £15. But you could just pay for the prescription to buy off an animal meds website. As Jean said, as it is licensed for farm animals, you have to sign a disclaimer at the vets. The vet is making a handsome margin. I w...

Re: My dog has a fever now????

I agree. Having Mr Slow on holiday, and junior vets unwilling to look after your sick pet is unsatisfactory.

Re: My dog has a fever now????

Have they checked for lupus? The systemic version is auto immune related, which our dogs can collect. Also the IMHA.
