Rupert Update

Post by Florence24 on Tue Jun 07, 2011 7:45 am

Forgot to update other thread and its easier to start a new one with the info and then I can repost how he's doing lately without it getting muddled in the question I asked Smile

He has some Pro Texin fibre which is something like 49% fibre, two scoops once a day which are divided up for his two feeds. He also has 10mg Buscopan tablets as opposed to the Zantac I was giving which wasn't working.

Vet is confident he has a strong intolerance/issue and we just don't know what to. Bless his heart he wasn't recommending allergy testing because of the cost (£300) but I expected it to be more so its really not that bad!!

Elimination diets I feel are too hard with a greedy dog and a second dog. Plus I have done them in the past and found nothing, his digestive system seems give him a funny number two every couple weeks no matter what.

Seeing how he goes over the next few weeks, so far so good! Since Weds only one colicky twinge but not enough to have a tablet and he has been having his fibre since Weds dinner time or Thurs morning, being a bad Mummy I forget exactly when Embarassed

I think I will write all his colicky episodes down here so I remember them all, wayyyyy too easy to forget!

Just 2nd June 4.30pm at the minute, and a twinge of one not enough for a tablet Smile

You know what it could be that. I also realised it got worse after his Fish4Dogs treats ran out..!

See, so many things it *could* be Rolling Eyes
