Feeling SO optimistic!
Ok, here goes. The first enzymes cost me $20 plus shipping and only lasted a week, at way under the recommended dose per meal. Then when I got his antibiotics, we ran out of enzymes for 1 1/2 days. Today the enzyme powder from Enzyme Diane came. Cost me $70 with shipping included. Will last at least 180 meals. I haven't scooped the yard in a few days (gross I know) to be able to compare stools over the past days. All of his stools of recent have been brown, solid, chunks. I checked the fiber content of both his kibble and wet food and as long as I feed the wet in morning and night with the antibiotic, and straight moist kibble throughout the day (treated of course) his diet will be right on track. Now just to get his weight back up! Thank you all for your help and everything you have done to help me diagnose and treat Gunther. I don't want to jinx it, but it seems like we are FINALLY on the right track!

|Ellimaybel||I think we are getting there. We are on enzymes and antibiotics. Unfortunately I'm out of enzymes until the next shipment arrives in the mail, but shouldn't be too long. As far as me, Gunther tried to break my hand tonight. We were rough housing and he grabbed my hand a little too hard. Totally my fault for riling him up. He didn't break skin but now my hand is a little swollen and hurts bad lol. Nothing is broken, I can move everything just fine. Just definitely squeezed a tendon or bone a little too hard. After it happened I showed him my hand and he licked it, which even that hurt but it's the thought that counts! Defintely going to have to ice my hand at some point tonight lol|

|Ellimaybel||So, more for my logging and tracking purposes, my first update. Enzymes came in the mail today at 1:05 p.m. I ignored the vets directions of feeding them by mouth 3 at a time and crushed 5 tablets in with 1 can of wet food and a little water. After it sat for 20 minutes he ate it all. So far, he has yet to have to go number 2. Will feed again in about 2 hours.|

Changes in the Gunther... Bought a small bag of Wellness today to sample for his sensitive stomach. He LOVES it. He used to be so well behaved while I prepared his food, now he's jumping up trying to grab the bowl before I put it in the food stand. I'm feeling optimistic about this. Also bought some chews that are supposed to stop him from eating his stools.
Gunther seems to be getting some red in his coat. Is it normal for them to get new colors after over a year old? Just curious. I'll love him no matter what he looks like.
