I've post about Mya )german shepherd, collie, husky cross) on other threads so some GNers may recognise the name.
About 3 weeks ago she started with a poop problems. Wanting to go out a lot (diarrohea). Everything normal otherwise. Tried some stool hardener tablets from local pet store. No improvement so took her to the vets. He could find nothing wrong with her. Even examined her anus glands.
He recommended a change of food but thought she may have eaten something. She has the run of our woods and spends no time on the lead unless I take her out somewhere different.
Changed her to wheat free diet. Dry food mixed with Chappie (vet's recommendation). After two days she was back to normal -good poos 2 or 3 times a day. I had also decided to keep her on the lead 100% of the time to make sure she didn't eat or drink anything apart from her own food and water.
After four good days it started again. I did a phone consult with vet (temp one) last Friday. Useful chat but she recommended adding probiotic fibre to food. Have done but no effect.
Last resort for vet are 3 stool samples but they said this is eliminate anything she has picked up by eating something, I am 100% sure she hasn't eaten anything; There's an additional cost for the sample test of £120.
The 2nd vet suggested it could be colitis. I think she is right but I'm now worried it is a life long condition and poor Mya will have this for the rest of her life. She does lick her behind a lot. I told the first vet this.
Mya's now 6 years old. She's brilliant during the night and goes on then plastic sheet I have put by the door. She isn't going as often during the day at the moment so I can get short journeys done in the car.
Have any of you had such a doggy problem? I really don't know what to do.
