Some of you may have seen that I've posted several times over the last few months about Molly having sudden bouts of diarrhea. It happened once a month for the past 5 months, the most recent being this past weekend. The vet suggested we go ahead with additional testing (she had a blood panel done last month and it was all normal) and she had an ultrasound done today. I just picked her up and he said that basically it confirmed that she has inflammation in her digestive tract. They put her on a course of metronidazole and baytril and she is restricted to her diet which is currently Natural Balance Venison and Sweet Potato. She also gets probiotics and enzymes in her food. Basically he said that it is trial and error with food and they try to control it with diet before taking any steps such as steroids or on going low dose antibiotics. I'm relieved to know there is some answer but also sad that there is in fact something wrong with her and there's no absolute cure.
Does anyone have any experience with this or any advice? I hope we get this under control quickly and it doesn't affect her life span or quality of life. Throughout all the dirrhea, she is always still energetic, playful and always has an appetitie. She never seems sick or in any pain, so I'm hoping she isn't suffering!
