JeanKBBMMMAAN Thanks on that thread - I am glad Lillie is picking up. It's amazing how quickly they can bounce back from stuff like this. Let us know how she's doing.

DutchKarin My 12.5 yr old Aussie had two bouts of this at about $1000 a piece. We did all the testing and HGE was the final proclamation. They get dehydrated very quickly that is why it got so costly. His system settled nicely with metronzadole and bland meals. Anytime I took him off he started having problems again. This is not ideal for the young dog I know but he has been on Tylan Powder for 10 months now and no problems at all. I decided to keep him on it the rest of his life. He is not doing very well and another intense bout of the HGE would be too hard on him.

FYI Tylan powder is an antibiotic used in the chicken industry and is available without prescription. I know, not ideal but it is working well in this case.

Sorry, it's hemorrhagic gastroenteritis. Nasty stuff.

I'd say pretty bright red. (Saw someone said 'raspberry jelly', like that.
And really foul odor, the diarrhea anyway. And foul smelling gas, though
that has lessened over time, haven't noticed any so far today.
