Thanks Dori. Our girl Sydney is also on the denamarin for life. Being a large breed she had developed some hip trouble and of course by her age some degenerative arthritis. The vet she had before had put her on rymadal but didn’t tell us she needed regular blood tests on that because it could damage the liver. Thankfully we have a new vet who found the problem with her liver right away but she will be on the denamarin for good most likely. Glad you and Cheryl let me know rice is inflammatory. I didn’t know that. I’ll check out the vitamin site you recommended. Think the vitamin will help her. Her hair has thinned a lot. Probably needs that vitamin e.
Thanks Cheryl I’ll definately give it a try. I think your right as they get older it gets hard for them to digest the kibble. I’ve heard pumpkin is good for inflammation. Don’t know why I didn’t think of that. Thanks for the info and I’ll check my email for your link.

Hi Sue this is Kelly. Just read your post and we are having similar trouble with our dogs. We finally had testing done for food allergy as along with bloody diarrhea they get yeast and bacteria in their stomachs constantly and we could find no reason as to why. The vet had initially put them on hills ID for sensitive stomach however since troubles continued and they actually would turn a little pink a short while after eating we did the allergy test. It’s just a blood test that they do and then see if their blood shows positive reaction to certain foods. Came back that they are actually allergic to corn, soy and potato. Apparently if your pet is allergic to something in their food or environment it can cause an allergic reaction that makes an overgrowth of yeast and bacteria in their stomach. Not sure if this will fix your babies troubles but if nothing is working maybe an allergy test might help to determine if their food is causing the problem. Best of luck to you I know how hard it can be seeing your baby struggle
