I am so very, very sorry. Please, please don't feel any guilt thinking that the IBD was in any way caused by what you fed Lola. I've read everything I can get my hands on about this disease and lived with it for 16 years with my Rotties. There is absolutely no doubt that this condition has a genetic link. It has been listed as a hereditary health condition of Rotties for ages and it is now being listed as a hereditary disease in poodles.

While it has been my experience that, once diagnosed, IBD dogs do better on a novel protein, very low-fat homemade diet, this only manages the symptoms, it does not cure, or prevent, the disease.

Default I am so sorry..

Dear Nathan,
I just had time to read the whole thread from beginning to end, and was hoping that somewhere in there, I'd find the news that your beloved little Lola was on the mend. I know how deeply you loved her and how wonderfully you took care of all her needs.
OMG! this isn't the news I was hoping for. I am so, so very sorry for your loss and just want you to know that I am grieving with you. Dear sweet little girl, may she rest in peace.
I wanted to add this in response and affirmation to Nathan's warning about commercial dog foods.
Such a timely article..

I just read this thread for the first time, so sorry about the ending. Just know that you did everything that you could.

I rescued a shih tuz that would go a day or two sometimes without eating and you could hear his tummy across the room. I too tried differant foods. It just became something that we lived with, when he did this (maybe once or twice a month) I just left him alone. IF I could get him to eat something, most the time he would recover quicker. Most of the time that was a cooked egg. We never got involved with medical treatments or vet recommendments and he lived to be 16 years old. He started to use the potty in the house at that time and though I tried really hard to fix this problem, I ended up putting him to sleep. Had this not started I think he would have easily lived a few more years.

So sorry for your lost. I hope to hear that you have a new rescued Poodle soon. I think the best thing to help us heal from this heartbreak in a new little face to cuddle.

Im so sorry. It sounds like you did everything you could for her.

You did what you thought would ultimately get your pup better, you obviously very much cared. It is not a commercial food that causes IBD, and its extremely risky to feed raw food to pets with a compromised intestinal tract due to bacerial translocation. You followed the right steps in hopes that she would respond.

I will be honest in saying that it sounded like she had some other major disease present (gastrointestinal lymphoma?), unfortunatley not always caught with biopsies.

Hugs to you, you obviously loved her very much. :(

I am so sorry. You must be exhausted and frustrated that after all you did you still were unable to save Lola. My heart goes out to you. I know how empty the house seems once your dog has crossed the rainbow bridge.
