Awww,he's home already,he is the cutest little guy,I probably would have picked the boy too,if I could not take all three.
I expect to get daily reports of the progress between Brandi and the kitty

Most definately The three littermates are very pretty amazing colours. I chosed him although very affectionate he's quite spunky. He follows you around like a dog just way cute.

I am wondering I showed him where his litterbox is but he hasn't went yet. It's been over 4 hrs, he ate, nibbled on Brandi's and drank. Being so young you think he'll remember where is it rather then me keep sitting him in it, he looks at me like

GG,in my experience with kittens,I put them im the box once and they know where to go.
I was thinking the covered box might be the problem,if he's not used to it
I never used a covered box,so I don't really know..
So,what's his name...

Well congrats on the new addition! Hopefully he's figured out the litter box thing by now.

Kandy, I called GG Monday to find out how it went, poor her, she was just sick over it all and is heartbroken because the foster didn't work out....she really tried, she was so exhausted from handfeeding the kitten, I think it was just too lonely for its mom, littermates and colony that it wouldn't sleep except for mini catnaps, it wanted moms milk, it was still nursing when she picked it up and I think perhaps the kitten was stressed because it wouldn't use the litter box, you know GG, she wouldn't give up on a whim and it really hurt her to have to return it. She thought it the funniest little bossy kitten *S* she did everything right, but to no avail

CPietra was right he'd of done better had I taken two but that was just not possible at this time. Sending they all find homes soon.

btw Brandi is doing better not 100% but her feces came back negative again so we just wait and hope

How's Bree these days Breeze

Brandi is doing better?? I'm so glad to hear this. little by little.......now that she is off the medicine maybe her system can go back to being normal for her.

Bree is much better ( knock on wood or my head which ever is closer) I am decreasing the grinded kibble and uping the solid kibble, she is still eating so this is good but I am still adding the mince meat.. one thing at a time. *sigh*

sorry the kitten didn't work out :sad:

I've been gone for so long and since this thread is 4 pages long I had no intentions of checking it out yet but just accidently clicked on it.

I didn't read it through thoroughly but just wanted to say that when I was checking out zinc deficiency a while ago because of Logan I remembered reading something about IBD dogs not absorbing zinc properly.

I'll see if I can find the info again and if I do I will post it in a new thread.

Hope Brandi and Bree are continuing to do well.

Don't ask, I'm so fed up that I can't get it under control. The article is really good but where to start

Can't keep adding or deleting or I'll never get it right The one thing if I didn't know before, no rice. I give up

I understand, I was there, and every morning I keep my fingers crossed that Bree doesn't go back.

what about going back to the begining.

Cooked mince meat and digestive enzymes ?? nothing else for three days

Sorry my post sounded so crabby, frustrating as you know.

Maybe it isn't food related, she has always ate anything and everything. I'm still home cooking and changed nothing, just adding a bit of kibble to it. Same as last week yet she was better

Maybe enviromental?

thats ok, I've been there..I have sat down and cryed my eyes out, out of fustration. trying to find a solution.

anything is possible. something is not agreeing with her, but what?? thats the ultimate question isn't it..


have you tryed to take out the kibble for a few days?? if that is the only thing you changed. maybe try that, I know with bree sometimes I can change little things and all is good for a week or two then it turns on us and we have to go backwards.

Sorry to hear that Brandi still isn't better. I remember very well how frustrating it was to have my son's newf with constant diarrhea and not being able to figure out what the problem was. Hopefully the IBD article will give you some insight.

I'm sorry about the kitty too. Maybe sometime in the future you can try that again - any kitty would be lucky to get you as a momma.

GG, I don't know if you've read this website but there is tons of information on it and if you click on the stuff written in blue it elaborates even more ....

http://www.dogaware.com/specific.html#ibd

Click on "IBD, IBS, Colitis, and other Gastrointestinal Disorders" ....the IBD info is a little over halfway down the page.

Rainbow I did read the article it has excellent info, thanks for posting it. In reply to your earlier question no Orijen Sr doesn't have any rice

Brandi fasted for about 24 hrs on her own. So I decided no pumpkin, no probiotics, no fortiflora. Added Orijen to extra lean minced meat X 3 daily and that's it ... drumroll it's been solid since that one last explosion.

Maybe it just took awhile for the antibiotics to kick in and/or took longer to replimish the good bacteria who knows. It's now solid and I'm so excited.

Thanks so much Kandy for helping me through (emails & msn'g) to read ingredients properly. SG Hollisque Blendz is a good food just too grainy for my liking. Thanks everyone as well for your knowledge/help and good wishes

I hope Bree is still doing good

GG. just out of curiosity, has she ever been tested for pancreatic issues, they have the same symptoms as IBD. When Harley had his blood work done, some of his levels were too low, others too high, so they assumed it was pancreatic insufficiency. after many more trips, we found out was/is IBD.
