Default Still no luck with Chloe's tummy

Chloe has been back on the Carafate for a few days now and she's having the runs again, I really don't know what to do

It also doesn't seem to be doing that much for her reflux, she's still licking a lot after her meals and occasionally gags a bit too. Her poor little butt has been red too.

Next step is a scope to look at her GI tract so I think I will watch her on her current regimen for a few days to see if she stabilizes and if not I will book her in for the scope. All I can say is thank goodness for pet insurance!

What are you feeding? Have you thought about mixing some plain yogurt with food to coat stomach? I hear canned pumpkin is very beneficial.

What else is she taking besides carafate? In people, you treat acid reflux with a medicine that is a proton pump inhibitor like Nexium, Protonix, Prevacid etc.

We can't get canned pumpkin in Oz (we don't eat pumpkin pies, blaargh) BUT Sarah I did find a baby food which was pureed pumpkin & sweet potato I think which I got to see if, being pumpkin, it would help with the runs - I've not used it so can't tell you unfortunately.

This is so weird, that it came on in such an all of a sudden way .... have you tried her on cooked for a few days to see if that helps, chicken, rice etc?

I really feel for you, what a terrible thing to be going thru - I wouldn't hold back on the scope, that should tell you something conclusive instead of all the guess work.

She was on a motility drug for 2 weeks when she first presented with symptoms but the vet was hoping just the Carafate would be enough to reduce her symptoms and make her comfortable.

It's weird, her runs seem to be on and off. She was bad saturday but fine yesterday??? And she was still refluxy this morning even after the carafate. I think she was better on the motility meds.
I'm starting a new job in a few weeks and I have a couple of days off in between so I'm going to get her scope booked in for then so I can be with her afterwards.

I hope Chloe gets better soon and that they figure out what's causing her tummy troubles.

Odie had extreme diarrhea after her spay and we have canned pumpkin here and used that, but we also used the pureed sweet potato baby food and it worked exactly the same. It really is amazing!
