Hi David, thanks for your reply.

I had already been using the Royal Canin with no success so I decided to revert back to chicken & rice, doing small feeds more often.
We ended up back at the vets for a check-up where she gave us antibiotics that my girl was on previously and some Pro-bind.
All of those things together have given us some improvement. It's very small steps at the moment but it is all going in the right direction. The poop is far from ideal but is slowly improving still and the usual dog has just been fully re-introduced also. I'm still occasionally adding some chicken or whitefish & rice to it but that's more so to keep her interested in eating. Our latest visit to the vet was Monday and I'm pleased to say that, although it isn't a substantial increase her weight has gone from 19.0 to 19.8kg in the space of a week. Onwards & upwards I hope  :)

Hello all, I'm hoping someone may be able to help me out as I'm at my wits end and just don't know what to do.

I have an almost 13 year old greyhound girl who currently has chronic diarrhea, IBD and suspected Lymphoma.

The vet gave me Royal Canin Gastrointestinal tins and I've read the ingredients and am less than impressed.
I know her health issues mean that she is on borrowed time anyway but she still has a zest for life and I feel that I owe it to her to see if I can get her bowel movements under control. After all, if she's still fighting then I have to fight too.

She's on James Wellbeloved dry food but only eats it occasionally now. She'd much prefer to eat moist food but so far I'm having trouble finding anything to agree with her. She's also on the Dorwest tree barks supplement powder but we haven't had any luck with that so far either.

I don't know what else to try. Currently, as her bowel movements are so bad I feel that anything is worth a go but it really needs to be something she can't resist, as she isn't eating properly and is a mere 20kg currently.....

Any advice at all would be much appreciated, as I say, whilst she still has a zest for life, I feel that I should do all I can to make her more comfortable.

Thank you in advance to anyone who could offer any advice, it would be so much appreciated

P.S - sorry, I forgot to add - it's been confirmed that she has a mass on her liver, which we suspect to be the Lymphoma but because of her current condition, we are unable to do a biopsy to confirm this. She is also on 25mg of Prednindale steroids a day
