Thank you Patti hugging I know, I was so surprised and grateful to the vet! I said when I get a (another) job I should get a plaque made saying this room was donated by Cooper lol!

He seems to be doing better I think. His poops are fine and on the mornings walk, it is getting better! Still a bit yellow (compared to Molly) but much better! Thank you for asking after my Moose!

I know how frustrating this can be. I have a new pup who became sick the 2nd day I had her. Diagnosed with parvo- hospitalized 3 days then coccidia and tapeworm. Washing my yard with bleach and H2o for weeks. She had to eat low fat diet from the vet. She was on reglan flagyl antibiotics pro-biotics.
She is eating Blue large breed puppy and her poop is cow-pies. I may try pumpkin
and cook chicken and rice. I worry that she is not absorbing nutrients from
her food. She has had so many changes which I did not want to do. I was hoping to stick to one food.Not to mention she could not be socialized-had to keep her
away from other dogs.

Annie I am so sorry you are going through this. It is so frustrating and worrying frown

Lisa thank you for asking hugging I really don't know frown This morning he had a poop at home 15 minutes before our walk and it was good. Then on our walk he had a revolting one. When I cleaned up the dog yard (forgot to do it yesterday) there were 2 really awful ones.

He's still on probiotics. I think from tomorrow I will go the cooked chicken/rice route and see how that goes.

I need to get their titers done (will wait until the house settlement goes through) so would it be worth doing a CBC? Would SIBO/EPI be reflected in bloods? Low B12 etc?

Bianca there is a specific test for SIBO. They will need to test Folate/Cobalamine for that. This is B12 levels actually but it is not included on standard tests. Also might look at testing for EPI. The tests are often done together.

I was hoping he was beyond this now.

Bianca, the test for SIBO might be pretty expensive, considering how much everything costs there. And there might be intestinal bugs there that are technically not SIBO.

You might want to ask your vet about treating for SIBO without the tet, though I think I would rather spend the money on a regular blood chemistry and cbc, whatever your full panel is (ask how much to add on thyroid, might be worth a check).

My guess is sibo, or something from the kibble, but the vet may want the regular bloodwork to rule out things like low-level pancreatitis, etc.

When he is relaxed, and you feel his stomach/abdomen (not after a meal), is it oft and upple, or does it have a firmness to it?

Bianca, Grimmi and I are sending good vibes that Cooper's tummy settles and that he improves. Grimmi had SIBO. Horrible! My German vet refused a course of Tylan. She instead pleaded with me to try an all-raw diet. (Because Grimm was in to the vet's office every other month for a different antibiotic or a new refill of one that didn't really solve the problem completely anyway)The raw worked.

Whatever is happening with Cooper's tummy, may is soothe itself well soon. You've been through so much with your big black pony! I'm wishing you both only positive things! hugging
