    We decided to spruce things up and fix some things under the hood. If you notice any issues, feel free to contact us as we're sure there are a few things here or there that we might have missed in our upgrade.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

It's possible my dog has IBD, not 100% sure yet but the signs lead to it so I'm working with my vet to treat the issues she is having.

I'd like to know if any of you have experienced this 'disease' with their dog? How did it go? Was the problem resolved? What was the cause/trigger?
Next step for my dog is antibiotics and changing her diet, hope to see progress.

Here's some pics because I think she's cute :P

She is very cute.

My dogs don't have IBD but I know people who have it. Does she get stressed out easily? Does she have separation anxiety?

IBD is the same in dogs as it is in humans. The vet will probably put the dog on a food specifically for that. Tell your vet you want Royal Canine:

OMG, Tonka loves that stuff! She ate that when she was on so much medication and her stomach was always off. I told the Vet I was exhausted and that I had boiled 30 lbs of chicken breast and rice over a few months. He told me to give her that instead.

My boy Case has it, he was in icu for 3 days because of it. I never knew what triggered it but it was pretty bad he couldn’t keep anything down for days. Steroids and a hydrolyzed protein diet helped him tremendously but the food is expensive so I eventually just switched to limited ingredient diet and he’s only had a few long nights since then. Maybe try probiotics too they really help the gut. Here’s a link to the food I used when he was at his worse. https://www.royalcanin.com/products...hydrolyzed-protein-adult-hp-dry-dog-food/3910
