7 month old - no weight gain in 6 weeks
I'm reaching out to see if anyone has any ideas or similiar experience. I've been doing this 30 years and have not had this issue come up.
I have a 7.5 month old that has not put on an ounce in 6 weeks. He is VERY thin. He gets raw in the am kibble (Earthborn/Fromm) in the pm. He is on probiotics, prozyme, fish oil, vit c, glucosamine. Active, alert, eats fine, normal puppy except he has had loose stool the last 2.5 weeks.
Fecal parasite/coccidia/giardia negative. I did a 10 cycle on metronidazole, no improvement. Xrays showed fair amount of gas, no claring blockage but a possible small area of something...intestines inflamed. Question being is the loose stool causing the inflamtion or the inflmation causing the loose stool.
Full gut blood panel, all negative (no IBD, EPI, pancreatitis). B12 and folate both in range. Next step is fecal occult which I will take in tomorrow. If it's inconclusive, intestinal scope will follow.
Anyone have any ideas???
