I've had Ziggy for 3 years now and he is 11 years old. He's in fantastic health - the only issue is chronic bowel problems. I've fed him Steve's Raw Food for about a year and a half and most of the time he does okay on it, although about a third of the time, his stools are either loose or actually runny.
What I've already tried:
- canned unsweetened pumpkin
- cooked rice
- mixing the regular raw food with chopped veggies
- getting him to eat slower (he gulps food down)
He recently had a full workup at the vet - blood panel, checked for Fanconi (negative) - and everything has come back okay. The vet's only recommendation was to get him on a "unique protein", that is a protein/meat source that his system has never been exposed to. She suggested venison.
Anyone on the list who has dealt with a confirmed case of irritable bowel? If so, what have you done to treat it?
Thanks in advance.
