Rainbow daily poop updates lol but in all seriousness constant diarrhea is a nightmare, who would of known? Reading others that have gone through this somehow makes me feel better not a pleasant topic though

Breeze so happy to hear Bree ate her supper for the both of you!!!

Thanks guys I was afraid to post in fear of jinxing but so far it's been perfect I'm up'ing the kibble and adding less meat. She seems to really like the Senior Orijen and it appears to be aggreeing with her ... phew!!!!

Not sure? She had a complete blood count, I'll assume if her pancreas was in trouble it would show high/low? I'm also assuming the UltraSound would should inflammation or at least obstruction which it didn't

With all the tests she has had the only thing that was questionable was the white cells found in her urine which we still dont have an answer for I plan to have her urine retested but at this point I'm scared to ask the vet any questions, it's cost over $1200 so far and no answer.

It's now firm and that's totally good enough for me

GG Like hazel you need an "anti jinx" to be able to say good news so you won't jinx it.
Hazel has some good ones or you can make your own, but just be sure you say it BEFORE an update




for continued improvement and that you never ( ok I should never say never) go backwards.

just thought you or maybe I needed a giggle

I'm glad that Brandi is finally doing better!!!! I wouldn't worry about the presence of the white blood cells in her urine sample. It could have been from that whole area being a bit irritated from all the diarrhea - when something is causing an irritation, the body responds by sending white blood cells to form a protective layer. Doesn't necessarily mean there was an infection present, and if there was - she was on antibiotics for long enough that it should've taken care of anything that was there.

Funny thing about diarhea is that it comes and goes and sometimes , we don't know why. 2 weeks ago , Nelly had it for 2-3 days, then it was Sienna and now it's Bailey

I have stopped trying to figure this out a long time ago

but yea for Brandi !
