Elgin, IL Audie 9 Month Old Female to rescue stories

It kills me to have to do this, but I need a new home for by pup. She is 9 months old, beautiful, and playful.

Unfortunately she is sick, and due to current life conditions I cannot afford to keep her and pay vet bills. She has soft stool all the time, peeing inside, eating her stool, and weight loss. I had her stool checked (negative), ran a dose of antibiotics from the vet, and tried stomach friendly food. Nothing has helpd.

She is pure bred and I have yet to fill out her paperwork, so you can do with it as you please.

I would prefer a home with other pets so she has someone to play with, and whoever takes her must be able to afford to treat her.

Have you contacted any rescues?

Have you tested her for EPI? SIBO?

She is a beautiful dog.

Is there any way you can give us more detail about what's been ruled out and what is being tried to correct the problems.

There are a TON of people on this forum that have experience with about anything you can imagine when it comes to GSD's.
The more specifics you can give, the better the chances are that someone can point you in the right direction and maybe get the problem taken care of so you don't have to re-home the dog.

I would be interested if it were't 8 hours away and if I know a bit more about her problems.

CassandGunnar - you can search her threads that she's posted. I know she has a couple regarding the problems she is having with the puppy. btw - she looks just like my Jax!

She really sounds like she could have EPI or SIBO at the least. Although, when Ursa had a constant UTI she also developed diarrhea and she always ate her stool. But I had her checked for EPI/SIBO and she was totally normal but the vet said that sometimes a UTI that is not treated will lead to diarrhea as well. So it may just all be linked to the UTI - if she has one. What type of antibiotics were you given by the vet and what dosage and for how long? Might be just not long enough or strong enough.

Here are my prior posts:

I had her stool checked for parasites (negative), changed her food (rice & pumpkin), gave her Metronidazole (500mg for a week) which was prescribed by the vet. Nothing has helped, and I cannot afford to keep having tests run. It breaks my heart to give her to another family, but I would rather see her go to another home that can afford to make her healthy than to see her continue on like this.

Have you tried contacting GSD rescue?
Here is the contact info for several in the area:


German Shepherd Rescue of Illinois
German Shepherd Rescue, Inc. - Home Page
Phone Number: 847/677-0561
Email: [email protected]


Chicagoland Shepherd Rescue

Email: [email protected]


Another possibility would be to look into low-cost vet care or programs which help owners pay for vet care for their pets.

Have you tried Hills ID?

I'd also give her digestive enzymes. Try 'Prozyme'. You can get it at Animal feeds and needs over in Arlinton Heights:

Animal Feeds and Needs

You can also try giving her Metamucil ( I used the generic stuff from Walmart). That should help form the stool.
