    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    We have been taking Ellie (German Shepard), 5 years old to the vet all summer with chronic diarrhea. It has been foul smelling and frequent and uncontrollable. She does better when she is on a prednisone and antibiotics. We have had lots of lab work done and her pancrease and thyroid are fine. She has lost about 20 pounds and looks anorexic. Food allergy testing includes allergies to fish, rice, corn, and chicken. Tried her on Natural Balance duck and potato - did better for a brief period of time but now refuses to eat it. Tried Bison and potato and the diarrhea is back. Any suggestions?
