PostSubject: Nothing is working for her tummy!   Wed Aug 01, 2012 9:20 pm

So Trillion was on Wolf King Solid Gold, and as im sure some of you know it's not currently on the shelfs.
so we went about to try other foods and NOTHING is agreeding with trillions tummy, she has had the runs so bad!!

we tried everything the only thing that made her stools somewhat more formed was Pure Vita, and even then it was not looking good.

I tried
Blue buffalo - GAS/Really bad runs/really often
Pure vita- Gas/ a little more formed..
*Purina - Runs
*Science diet (from the vet) - Starts off formed but then quickly turns into mud
*Pedigree - Runs/gas
taste of the wild- runs


the ones with stars are foods id NEVER feed her if i wasnt running out of ideas..

and when we went on a 50 mile radius look for her wolfking we got so much backtalk from people about how it was recalled and its not quality and how it has grains in it (rice and barly)

im just at wits end.

im about to try raw and hope that helps, if i can't find her normal food.

we went to he vet for some guidance that's where we got the sensitive stomach science diet, and we also got some antibiotics and we got a stool sample done which we get results on tomarrow.


(in between swiching food she has had abour 4 days of chicken and rice to settle her tummy) we have been on this dog food hunt for over a month!!

help!

My vet suggested science diet and antibiotics for Kody when he was having tummy issues and that, of course, didn't work. Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Grain Free) didn't work for him and neither did TOTW. Honestly, I would never try Purina or Pedrigree since I learned how crappy they are. The honest kitchen and raw worked for him. As for kibble, what worked for Kody was Orijen at first, then I switched him to Wellness Core Ocean, and now he's on Acana. All grain free and he hasn't had any issues.

How much time are you taking to transition her to a new food? My guess is that since you've tried all those different foods in a month, you're switching her food abruptly without a transition period and it's upset her tummy. It sounds like you can't just switch her food or her digestive system goes wacky.

Have you tried resetting her tummy with a bland diet, like scrambled or hard boiled eggs and green beans or peas or carrots until she's back on track?

Forgive me for asking, but is she still on meds? Could this be contributing? When did it start?

This is the site I use when dealing with commercial dog food.
It is really great and gives you a complete over view of the ingredients and rating of the food.

I was using Innova but am changing to Holistic Select as there isnt anywhere in my area that sell Innova. Both are 4 star dog foods.

Here is a post I posed while at the petstore looking for food.


http://www.itsahuskything.com/t5756-halo-or-eukanuba#92639

It has some more info on her eating habbits.

We have been resetting on a bland diet and we have given some time and it mostly gets worse before it gets better.

She is no longer on meds.

We will see about that stool sample tomarrow.

Ugh. L

How much time are you taking to transition on a new kibble and how much time do you reset on a bland diet? If you did all those different kibbles and bland diet in between, my guess is that you may be switching food way too fast for her.
