Hope your find the problem soon.
Thanks for sharing the info, and we also were wondering about the same. Since he has a tender stomach, we have been giving him pretty much a fixed diet from past one year. Innova Evo duck, chicken, fruits and veggies mix (no corn, no gluten, no grain) kibble once or twice a day (as he wishes), milkbone biscuits (2-3 a day), and two slices of wheat bread every morning. Sometimes, say once or twice a week, he gets to chew on raw hide for 15 minutes or so. The only variation that happened in the past two weeks was a different biscuit when we ran out of milkbone (last to last week) and a small portion of raw hide (on wednesday). The vet suggested a possibility of a piece of raw hide stuck in the intestine and causing the distress.
Could you please share what tests they do for inflammatory colitis as well as whether Metronedazol would address that in case that's the case? Thanks!
