Congratulations on the weight gain. Yes, see if the color of stools improve after a longer regimen of Tylan.

You have done such a good job with him.....thinking of his future surgery, he is lucky to have you!

Another update - a further 500gram weight gain (we have hit 8.0kg). Continues on 4 meals per day and medication regime appears to be working. Poo still remains yellow/ brown and low odour so will remain on tylan for now. Just had 6th vitamin B12 injection - for fasting B12 and folate levels next week ( fingers crossed that levels are increasing).
Will have a look at the information here about appropriate B12 oral meds as I am sure we will need to add those in at some point.
Thank you

Hello that a great gain and isn't it a great feeling.....my gal had problems with b12 or holding the levels eventfully i was able to swop to the wonderlab tablets .https://www.wonderlabs.com/itemleft.php?itemnum=K9688

It may be something you want to consider after you get the next test we have seen that in smaller dogs they can more effective than the jabs....some do a combination of both.

We also went to Wonderlabs pills with Intrinsic Factor for Kolby and he began to gain weight steadily.

A great update!

Quick update - weight gain static . b12 levels have gone from 68 to 150 so will continue on weekly injections for now. Continues on the Tylan for another 45 days.
Continue to make his food which at 3 kg per week is rather labour intensive.

Thanks for everyone’s help..
