Default lymphoplasmacytic eosinophilic enteritis

Gypsy has colitis and inflammatory bowel disease. She had a colonoscopy and has acute
lymphoplasmacytic eosinophilic enteritis from her stomach to her colon.
WHAT should I feed her?
The ZD ultra has given her the runs which she did not have before.
Her symptoms are blood in her stool since January.
I am thinking a vegan diet Natural Balance mixed with Kangaroo meat.
HELP!
She is ON prednisone and flagyl and primosec and Tylan Powder and oat bran. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OH< and she is still bleedingafter a week on the meds and a month on the ZD Ultra.

I've got no advice but I wanted to say sorry. I hope her symptoms subside and dealing with this isn't too difficult!

I should clarify that she has been on meds and every L.I.D. diet out there since January.
We have taken her to 4 different vets.
She has been on the steroids for a week that I tried so hard to keep her off of.
The Tylan Powder worked in the beginning, but those days are gone.

although the links I am providing are human centric they apply to canines as well -- probiotics -- good read "Gut Solution" The Probiotic Solution for Colitis

Probiotics show promise in treating colitis - CTV News

Medscape: Medscape Access

Probiotic Found To Treat Colitis | Dr. Cutler


canine -- Digestive Problems in Dogs and Cats, Holistic Pet

Probiotics for Dogs, Cats and Horses

Probiotics for Dogs That Help Digestion Problems - VetInfo

I know probiotics and their benefits in reducing and eliminating allergies and for resolving digestive problems including irritable bowel, colitis , etc -- Carmspack Working German Shepherd Dogs

Just wanted to agree with Carmen. The meds are very similar to the treatment for H pylori positive ulcers in humans. Possible that the probiotics might have a similar effect as it does on humans. Also, she may have developed a resistance to the Tylan. Common with the long term of use with antibitotics. I'm sorry your girl is sick, sending you luck

the longer she is on steriods the more difficult it will be to "fix" things. I believe one of the links I gave you does address this.

see a holistic vet with a non drug approach .

Just a quick question ... in addition to these problems, have you eliminated SIBO?

I can not recommend highly enough that you join K9Kitchen : dog diets raw cooked allergies disease to get some real help. Half the dogs on there have GI problems.

I agree with joining the K9Kitchen group.

With this type of inflammatory bowel disease, I would feed a homecooked limited ingredient diet, with appropriate supplements and drugs.

There might be some resources here that can help: Home Cooked Diets, etc - GermanShepherdHome.net
