Re: Devastating News....

Try to get a better understanding on what the damage is, if you can get some valid explanations. Pit Bull Rescue Central would help you with some of the vet bills. They can't cover everything but it is a start. You might be able to find a vet that gives you a special discount for a rescue puppy in t...

Re: Low Fat Food Choices

I don't think it is off topic, there are info that concern IBD in dogs and diet/foods. Being on the same boat, thanks for taking the time to type some extra info and links, LMW.

Re: hi from northern il

Their doggy daycare/kennel prohibits pitbulls. Considering the overall lack of knowledge of canine behavior and common sense that many of their employees display around dogs , along with the company "training" material....it is better that way. Cassie, got your other PM.Will be back later...

Re: Low Fat Food Choices

PS Prednisone is known to cause pancreatitis, along with antibiotics. Unfortunately a lot of these "modern" medicines work against the third law of physics which states that for every action there is an equal and opposite action. Every medication creates motion and the "equal and opp...

Re: Low Fat Food Choices

Hi Pitbull-lady. I also looked at a several kinds of low fat kibble, or diets, when my Tux had an attack of pancreatitis and tets and biopsies determined that he has IBD. He was on Horizon Amicus senior and weight magament for a while, which I really liked due to the fact that the company has its ow...

Re: Cyclosporine for IBD

Thanks again, Jazzy. The compounding pharmacy my vet clinic is familiar with (they find the company reliable and never had issues), was suggested because of the dosage they are thinking to start Tux on. Atopica, which is what I would naturally think about when talking cyclosporine for dogs, is not a...

Re: Cyclosporine for IBD

Beware the generic and compounded cyclosporine. The drug has to be in micro emulsion form to be absorbed well, so other forms of cyclosporine require completely different dosing and may not be effective. I ended up not ordering on friday, for the same reason.It is this pharmacy by the way: http://w...

Re: Cyclosporine for IBD

Thank you, Jazzy. I am mainly looking at side effects experiences, so your feed back is appreciated. Cost is often an issue when having multiple dogs, but whatever can help my boy is welcomed and dealt with.Thanks again.

Re: Cyclosporine for IBD

Thank you very much for the feed back, Cherry.I told the vet tech to go ahead and order the cyclosporine yesterday, she contacted a compound pharmacy that should call me, hopefully today, but I'll keep your suggestion in mind as well. I am still waiting to hear from another specialist in LA, for a s...

Cyclosporine for IBD

Just wonder if anyone has had a dog on it, to treat/manage Irritable Bowel Disease. Tux had to go back on prednisone after the scare in May, when he had to be hospitalized ( http://www.pitbullforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=153604&hilit=tux ). He was taken in the first time he vomited, and the...

Re: Help with way to happy tail?

Ill try lightly bandaging it again, I really hope it never comes down to amputation her tail is so cute and exspressive. How is your pup doing? I opted to dock my Jack's tail when every type of bandage did not work, and I tried hard, and he was at risk of infection despite continuous vet care and i...
