Hello everybody, I am in some serious need of help. My puppy olive has been dealing with colitis for several months and i just dont know what to do anymore. First off she is healthy otherwise, but continues to have loose/bloody stools on a consistent basis. Here is Olives story. When she was around 3 months she had a bladder infection with resulted in blood in the urine. I took her to my local vet when i noticed the problem and around that same time she was having very trace amounts of blood in the stool. This is the start of all her problems. After some antibiotics the bladder infection would clear..then reoccur after the antibiotics where gone. Eventually my doctor found struvite crystals in the urine and said the diet was causing this problem. All this time her stools have been getting worse and blood intensity was increasing. It was clear this was becoming a serious problem. We put her on science diet via our doctors recommendation, i really didnt want to do it, but i must admit i gave her some reliefe. We then went to natural balance as her primary source of diet as she had not wanted the science diet anymore. Anyways after some research i tried some home remedies that may or may not have worked but eventually the bladder stopped becoming an issue. Now we are struggling with her colitis after my local doctor telling me to just keep putting her on science diet and seeing no improvement we had to go get a second opinion. We went to Dr. butchko who is extremely reputable and we really didn't learn anything here either. It was very frustrating. The doctor got a radiograph of her to make sure there wasn't obstructions. There wasnt. She said the intestines where slightly large probably because she was irritated. Here we came to the conclusion that the colitis needed to become the primary treatment. We got ALOT of different intestinal antibiotics that helped alot. But the most current development is that the diarrhea and blood is back again. Brings a tear to my eye. I have had no continuous improvements in her case and its so sad to me. So im asking you guys to help me out with suggestions on what to do. I know raw diet should be considered, but just dont know how realistic that is. Natural balance is good food and supposed to be good on her tummy. I have also tried some plain chicken breast and white rice..that slightly helped. Tried pumpkin that made it way worse. Some of the meds i can think of are Flagyl, omxi-clav, and something called alban suspension. BTW she is a happy dog and besides these issues is very healthy. She is active, gaining weight, and drinking water. So any comments will be greatly appreciated, actually i dont even know if i cant explain how much i appreciate any feed back. Thanks Ahead of time!
