Diet - Vomiting, Diarrhoea

by Pat
(Sloughhouse, CA)

approx. 2 yr old female weighs about 80lbs. Every three weeks for the past 3 months exhibits same symptoms: restlessness, vomiting, diarrhea, low energy, no appetite. After a few days, disappears. Does not exhibit the bloating or other GDV symptoms. Have taken to vet and had xrays, but showed nothing out of the ordinary. Has been on special Hills diet for sensitive stomachs for the past two months. Any ideas?

Diet
by: Donna

If the vet can't find a problem and the food isn't working, get him off it. You need to try something else.

Find a holistic vet in your area who can help you.

Get him onto raw which is the species-appropriate diet.

In addition to what she said consider if you vaccinate or give flea/tick/heartworm meds.

Hills...the worst
by: Anonymous

Your dog is suffering terribly from something she is either ingesting or she is being consistently exposed to. Have you used a flea/tick powder on her?
Is she wearing a flea/tick collar? Has she been vaccinated recently? Where does she sleep? ie: on a foam-filled mattress? If she is outside have you sprayed your lawn with any chemicals?
Her Hills diet is not appropriate for her. All that other stuff could be affecting her entire system.

Find a new vet, asap...preferably one that understands and practises holistic care for animals.
This is really serious and you need to find out what she's being exposed to before it's too late.

Diarrhea, vomit
by: Anonymous

Get him or her off that food you are feeding him. Same thing with my dogs. No corn , wheat, barley etc. They are not herbaceous eaters.
