I have major issues with Banfield. In no way, shape, or form would I ever go there. This is the first time I've ever heard anyone say anything positive about them.

Toby has health insurance, so I get reimbursed for nearly everything from any vet and it is a much better deal than the Banfield insurance.

We just got home from the vet. She was great! Not a super fancy office but clean, the staff was nice and knowledgable and the vet was fantastic.

She did all the tests, and everything was normal. His bowels were normal, he was a little gassy though. No fever either.

She thinks Toby just got into something he shouldn't have. She prescribed medication and a bland diet for five days. She told me it was up to me whether I wanted to do plain chicken and rice or get science diet id. I went with home cooking. She wants to see him again Friday or Saturday if I don't see any improvement.

If it doesn't clear up with the meds and bland diet, we will have to do further testing like an allergy elimination diet. Hopefully, this is just a temporary ache and nothing else- that's what the vet seems to think.

Well I am glad to hear it is nothing serious! Can you get a probiotic or Fortiflora to add to his bland diet? It really helped when Penny had ongoing diarrhea, along with the meds.

I have fortiflora from when he had tummy trouble before and he's been on it.

I am glad Tobys new vet seems so attentive and caring...It is so hard to see these little ones under the weather....a simple remedy for gas that sometimes helped Bella was Oval drops for babies ( simethicone ) they won't hurt him even if they don't help and are cheap to buy...after Bella died I found out our family vet is going back to school for emergency medicine, she was dreading having to tell me, so we soon will be starting to look for a new vet who meets our criteria for care of the girls...and I am not looking forward to it

Hope Toby is feeling better soon. I know how you feel, my two are my first dogs so I panic a bit too. I still need to find a vet I'm happy with. Keep us updated xox
