    Oh...my darling pooch disemboweled the sofa years ago. That wasn't too pleasant.

She has improved since the antibiotics. I think she's got an infection that the vet can't diagnose so they've plumped for a diagnosis of pancreatitis because that's the easiest and most money earning from their perspective. I cannot effectively express my contempt for this vet

    We are considering raw food - we are 95% likely to go this route. If this isnt an infection and is food related then I think it's down to dairy and a lactose issue.
    According to my reading there has been a massive growth in the cases of pancreatitis in dogs over the last 10 years - and I do wonder whether it's the label vets assign when a dog presents with stomach issues that they can't accurately diagnose.

    Thanks to everyone for all their kindness this weekend. Mia is a LOT better - she's started disembowelling toys this morning, so we know she's on the mend. xx
    Hi Linda, so sorry to hear about Mia and the terrible advice and attitude from the vet. I feed my dogs raw food and the more I’ve read about the fake dog food industry the more it compares with our fake foods and I’m sure they’re probably all connected. One of my dogs has allergies and her skin and outbreaks have greatly reduced since eating a raw diet.
    I get mine from a company called Honey’s a nice company to deal with. Great customer service, if you call them with Mia’s specific needs they’ll advise and help. The food is delivered frozen with the right balance of meat, bones and organ meat needed. There is a small amount of seasonal veg in it. You just get one out to defrost overnight and it’s ready to use the next day. Another good company I’ve used is Jack Wolf. They’re also good to deal with and do a veg free selection specifically for dogs that can’t tolerate them. If you use them here’s a new customers discount code (JACKWOLF25)

    I’m on a Westie Advice Facebook Group and there’s some great advice on this (it’s like doggie Harcombe ). A couple of things from the earlier posts:-

    Dogs can have kefir and they love it. Mine and lots of dogs are lactose intolerant so when I do it I used goats milk, which they can tolerate. I also use a probiotic (biokult) in their food daily.

    Dogs have no nutritional requirement for dietary carbohydrates. They can get everything they need from a diet that contains only protein and fat. Energy metabolism in the dog can be based on fat oxidation and the breakdown of protein to produce glucose.

    The sugar content of Kibble - there’s not one under 40% and the grain free brands seeme to be even higher!!

    I’ve attached something about pancreatitis from the group from an holistic vet https://healthypets.mercola.com/site...pets-life.aspx

    I do hope she recovers and think she’s in good hand with you. X

    Yes she does a lot to expose the dog food (kibble) industry. I can remember having dogs back in the day, before Kibble and them never suffering with the things they do these days. They are mirroring what happening with humans - obesity, diabetes and allergies. It must be connected to processed fake food.
