Can anyone help please. I have 9 years old boy , Freddie who has IBS. The vet gave this diagnosis few weeks ago after tests. Blood, poop, ultra sound scan. Nothing found, no infection. But his poo is so up n down. 4 days or so firmish, then back to cow pat! He's not having anything to eat other than chappie as he won't eat the royal canin. No treats at all, not even his teeth cleaner as it's liver flavour. But now she's not mean on chappie, he was eating it if I made a soup out of it. But he's lost more weight. He's 8.5 today..has been 8.8 kg for few weeks but although he's eating he's not gaining weight. It's such a worry. The vet see him every 3 or4 weeks to check him over . He goes again Tuesday..but 8.5 is very low, he's always been a good size 10 kg.
Could stress have caused the IBS ? I'm going to ask vet Tuesday. Looking back on last years season dates. He suffered really badly. Wolf howling even when we were in with him and on walks it was nose down, licking and sniffing every blade of grass...
Does anyone have any idea as I'm at a loss. He's happy most of the time and plays, his tail is down quite a lot tho so ... excuse the gabbling but I don't know what to do next
