Feeding dogs with health problems / Re: Colitis
« on: Aug 10, 2015, 19:40 »
This is an update for Bronte my Lakeland terrier’s Colitis.
Up to the end of Feb we were going to the vets every two weeks, with a minimum spend of £54.
We had switched to different foods has suggested on this site, but nothing seemed to help her.
It was our dog groomer, who suggested we try Canagan Game dry food, as she had a customer, whose dog had Colitis, and it seemed that Canagan Game worked for her dog.
I bought a 2k bag, not expecting the food to help Bronte, but I can honestly say we were amazed by the improvement.
It's been six months now, and apart from her booster, she hasn't been to the Vets since February.

Thanks Dottie and David for your reply.

The vets say "It's a mystery" which is absolutely no help at all to us, or our dog 
They have tried different types of drugs on her including Amoxycillin. Sulphasalazine, and Zantac,plus a fibre powder to add to her food.

Like I said in my last email, the bouts only last about a day, which I suppose compered to other dogs I have read about who have Colitis, it's not that bad really.

We will know as soon as she wakes up that she has a bout of it, as she paces around the house at first, and looks like she's in pain,
she will then try to eat grass from the garden, which we try to avoid. After the first hour she will then sleep most of the day, and will not be bothered to do anything.
She will not eat anything until after 7pm, then when we know she's hungry, we give her a bowl of boiled chicken, and brown rice, then she's back to being a well Bronte again. Any poo's she will do through that day will be very soft, and occasionally mucus or blood in it. 

In between bouts she is really healthy, she runs around the park chasing her ball for well over an hour at a time, in fact the vet said that could be a cause on it, but we have tried to limit her exercise, but this did not have any effect on reducing the bouts of colitis.

Thanks again

Our three year old Lakeland Terrier has been diagnosed with colitis. She tends to have a bout of it every 2-3 weeks or so, which usually take about a full day to recover. She sometimes has blood and/or muscus in her poo.

She has been on different medications from our vet, but nothing seems to work. She is on Burns Sensitive  dry food at the moment, which we mix with a small amount of  boiled chicken breast (otherwise she won't eat the dry food).

I have been looking at the Canagan, and Eden dry foods on this site, and have been wondering if this type of food may help her,Canagan has been recommended by a supplier of these foods.
Has anyone tried either of these food on a dog with colitis, or any other ideas which may help?
