He looks like he is starving to death, his hair is falling out, and he isnt the happy dog he once was. He has been treated for Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency and Irritable bowel syndrome, but nothing has changed. If anyone has any ideas please led our family a hand. Thank you for your time!
What was used to treat EPI and IBS?
Malabsorption syndrome (a catch all phrase) - this do to the weight loss and hair loss as body is not taking up valuable nutrients - this obviously starts in the gut and could be a result of damage prior to treatment and/or ongoing from parasites like giardia or bacteria secondary to a now hospitable enviroment for microbes from abx. if abx. were used.
What are you feeding? Have you tried RAW?
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown
