Yes, we had the endoscope done on our Baxter. His IBD is narrowed down to PLE (protein losing enteropathy). Finding the IBD was purely by accident. He broke out in a horrendous rash on his body, in his mouth, and a paw was terribly swollen. After all was said and done there seemed to be no correlation to the rash and the IBD. But he was put on strong antibiotics which eliminated the rash. He was started out on budesonide. After the protein count came up he is still on the same dose and metronidiazole (flagyl) was added. If the next labs come out with no protein loss the hope is to cut back on dosage of both. The flagyl makes him nauseated tho, even though I give it to him with food. He also lacks an appetite, so I hand feed him, or more like force feed. Currently he is on Natural Balance Duck and Potato. I offer him dry and canned, which he does really detest. He likes the Basics Duck and Potato canned, so I am going to switch the canned over to that. The doc recommended Royal Canin PV, but we have had one dog who died from the RC Ultamino, we feel this IBD with Baxter was brought on by RC HP and another got extremely ill on the RC Renal, so our specialist was very upset we wouldn’t put Baxter on RC. He does not tolerate sweet potatoes and we want to keep him on the cooling proteins (duck, whitefish) as the warming proteins seem to affect him negatively. Any suggestions from your experiences is greatly appreciated.
Several weeks ago, I joined Dog Advisor and upon reviewing the editor’s ratings on dry dog food, I purchased a 5 lb. bag of Natural Balance Sweet Potato and Duck Small Breed Dry Food since it was rated with 4 stars compared to the 2.5 stars for the Royal Canin Dachshund dry food I have been giving my dogs. I’ve been slowing switching and since I was getting low, I just purchased a 12 lb. bag of the Natural Balance. However, I am very concerned now since when I checked the editors reviews this evening, I see that the Natural Balance food I have been serving my dogs is now rated 2.5 stars. I do not understand how it can be rated a 4 star food a few weeks ago and now it is rated a 2.5. Any feedback?

She started with itching her neck until it became raw, and the the itching increased all over. We have tried several dog foods along with benadryl and claritin and nothing seemed to work. I put her on the Hills d/d potato and duck, and what a difference. I had run out, and put her on the Royal Canine Potato and Duck, and I have to get her off of it because of itching again and back on the Hills. Something in it works. For us, Hills is the way to go.
