Remember Your Beloved Pet
Ellie is not feeling well

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?
