Both Ludo and Ricky mentioned they have colitis and I wanted to let you all know about my experience with this and just to help their moms be aware that it can have on going problems.
I started suffering with this after going to Colorado on vacation eight months ago and still suffer with it. The vet also thinks I picked it up from sniffing around where wildlife had been.
It has left my tummy and intestines extremely sensitive and it is why I have to now eat a limited ingredient diet ALL the time. My food is Venison and Sweet Potato and is made by Royal Canine. It can only be purchased from the vets and is rather expensive at $26.00 for a 5 pound bag.
Luckily after much hunting mom found Natural Balance L.I.D (Limited Ingredient Diet) it is also a venison and sweet potato food and I can tolerate that okay too. They also do a salmon and sweet potato but I don't like fish. We get that at Petco and it is $14.00 for a 5 pound bag. Because this food doesn't have all those fillers in it, I don't need as much, just a half a cup in the morning and half a cup a night. The bag says a dog my size should get 3 cups a day....but without all those fillers it is higher in calories so we found I didn't need that much.
The other thing we really found that helped is not to give me straight dry food. Mom always adds a quarter cup of water to my food. This stops the dry food from absorbing all the good bile in my tummy and also stops constipation. We have found that any food that has chicken, chicken meal or rice/ rice flour in it triggers off the colitis again. I also can't tolerate beef or lamb and even chomping on a yummy beef bone will upset my tummy now.
The mom spent over a $1000 dollars at the vets before they finally found what it was and it was only when they sent all my samples to the Vetinary School at Texas University that we finally got an answer.
The other thing that is very important is the bedtime cookies - I get two of them and they stop me from throwing up that icky yellow frothy stuff. There are cookies and treats available for sensitive tummys, you just have to read the ingrediant labels carefully. We have found some vanilla pretzel cookies at Petco (at the cookie bar) that only have 3 ingriediants and I love those and the girls in there know they are the only ones I am allowed to have. The hard thing for moms and dads is to be very strict about treats and table goodies - no matter how pleadingly we look at them.
Hope you guys feel better soon and please if it continues, talk to your vets and ask them about food sensitivies and if it could be triggering your upset tummies.
