So Just as we thought we were getting back on track with Poppy the vet has now told us that she has Colitis. She has been put on antibiotics and pro-kolin+. We have also been told to feed her a bland meal of chicken and rice for the next two weeks.
Through reading other posts on here though I really don't know whether I should be feeding here either of these because of allergies etc. My other problem as well is I have absolutely no idea how much I should be feeding her.
Poppy was spayed in the last six weeks and one of the outcomes of this seems to be that she is always looking for more food. So while feeding her, her normal food I could cope with this as I knew she had eaten the correct amount and would just ignore her looking for more, but on the chicken and rice I am just guessing what I think she should have, then when she is looking for more it makes me wonder if I am actually feeding enough/too much.
Please give advise as to how much you think a 30kilo dog should have, and if you think that we should change the rice for potato, and the chicken for fish.
It's two weeks since we have been to the specialist regarding her limp, and we have got Poppy up to two 45minute walks a day, with a 20 minute warm up on the lead and then 25 minutes off lead, this had been going really well until yesterday. When now we seem to be back to square one again with her unable to put weight on her foot at all and feeling very sorry for herself.
Just as we seem to get somewhere, and start to feel like we are getting our 20month old dog back there is something that gets in the way of this. Feeling very down today with all of this.
