IBS / Colitis
Our gorgeous boxer pup Kellie was not doing great. Immediately after we collected her from the breeder there was blood in her stool, which was also very loose. She was very very small. She weighed 3,5 kg. according to various boxer sites, she was supposed to be around 7-9 kg. After a week the digestive issues were still bad and the steroids and antibiotics began.
By the age of 5 months she had been on steroids twice and antibiotics so many times that I had lost count. The blood in her stool always returned once the antibiotics stopped. And now new problems emerged as she turned coprophagic (starting eating her own stool).
She was strictly on the vets sensitivity food, but the problem remained. She defecated more than 10 times a day and as a result she did not grow very much. At 5 months she was barely 10kg when she should have ideally been 15 kg. She had undergone so many tests of her liver and digestion yet the vet couldn’t find the cause of her awful health.
I was referred to Conor by a friend and I sent him an email explaining my troubles. Generous as he is he spent a lot of time explaining to me about canine nutrition. I started feeding Kellie exactly as he recommended. He was my last chance to get her back on her feet again.
The most amazing thing happened to my dog two days later – she starting having normal stool, morning and evening. She has is now 11months and we have not been to the vet since. She is growing, she is happy, she stopped eating her stool. She is now a very healthy dog! She is still a small dog but she is great at 21 kg. She is still growing and gaining muscle and is slowly catching up to reach her ideal weight.
She only eats raw, and I would never give her any other dog food. In terms of money it is not an expensive food, especially not if you compare it to sensitive diets and vet bills. I recommend it to any dog owner.
I am so fortunate that I was introduced to Conor. He and raw probably saved my dogs life.
