I know this is totally unrelated; but the pic of your mastiff pup in your siggy is the cutest. Thing. Ever.

God. ****. It.

My dog's blood panel told us nothing. Her vitamin B12 levels are the low end of normal but still within "normal." Everything else was basically normal.

And yet she still looks and feels like crap. The vet was like, "I dunno, wanna put her on Hills I/D?"

Ugh.

I'm really sorry you didn't get an answer.

I am so sorry. I hope you're able to figure out what the problem is. Poor Blossom and you.

Ugh. That is the worst. Could you give her a supplemental B12 injection and see what happens? Or maybe start a treatment for SIBO? Can't remember if you did a round of Metronidazole or not, or if you've tried any pre/probiotics.

It never hurts to seek a second opinion. If this vet is stumped, going to another vet for another opinion never hurt anyone. I work at a multi-vet practice and there are a few times one of the vets says, "Huh, I don't know." and confers with the other vets in the practice. Through that discussion and input of other experiences, ideas/thoughts can be gathered that may have otherwise been missed. Even having her bloodwork re-evaluated by someone else may be beneficial.

Yeah we did discuss potentially trying the Vit B injections to see if it yields any results. We did discuss treating for SIBO as well and I have some Metronidazole, however, her stools are firm on the turkey and sweet potato mix so I've held off on that (Metra's not my favorite drug for a lot reasons. I may ask for Tylan.)

I'm definitely open to another opinion and I'm considering seeking out an integrative vet who might have some holistic ideas for supporting her digestion.

Why did I get a boy puppy-Lip stick all-the-time EWWW!!!!!

On the plus side, watching other peoples puppies and dogs makes me appreciate my dogs so much more. My dogs rock!

And I am pretty sure JRT puppy thinks I am an evil ruler, because I have rules and talk in a authoritative voice ah ha!
