Maria, good luck with your puppy. We took Daisy to the vet not long after this post and learned her liver was inflamed. She was taken off her prednisone and other meds which can be toxic to the liver and we lost control of her IBD. Had to say goodbye a couple weeks later.
So her lack of interest in the Sojos was probably a coincidence. We did learn near the end that delayed stomach emptying is not uncommon in IBD and were just about to try metoclopramide (?) to speed up movement through her stomach, but we didn’t get a chance. It’s all about getting the right combo of food and drugs -a lot of trial and error – hopefully before it’s too late. I wish you and your puppy well.Stephanie SMember
My lab/golden has IBD. We’ve been trying for a year and a half to find a food that doesn’t cause vomiting or diarrhea. Through trial and error we’ve figured out she needs very low fat, very low fiber, no white or sweet potatoes, and no kibble. Our latest experiment has been with Sojo’s original pre-mix with cooked chicken breast (I’m afraid to feed raw meat to a dog with a compromised immune system.) The first three days she loved it and her stools were firm. Then she threw up but it looked like just the chicken so we wrote it off as a fluke and persevered. Now she doesn’t want to eat the Sojo’s – she tries to pick the chicken out. She hasn’t thrown up in two days and her stools are still excellent. She behaved the same way with Honest Kitchen and Grandma Lucy’s. Meanwhile we’ve tried several canned foods that she will eat enthusiastically despite the gas and cow patty stools they cause. Does anyone have any idea why these mixes might not sit right with her, despite the good output? I’m soaking the Sojo’s overnight. Our vet has no idea why she stops eating it. Also wondering if the oats, etc., in the Sojo’s are cooked – they don’t look it, so might it be causing bloat
