Unhappy Upset stomach issues

Hello, I was wondering if anyone has a little one with a sensitive stomach. My Molly will be 1 year(this week) and we have been dealing with stomach issues for the last three months. We have been to the vet several times and she is on special food and lots of meds. I thought we were doing better but last week she got really sick. We took her to the vet and she thinks it may be to much stomach acid. We go back today for a recheck. I wasn't sure if anyone else has dealt with this but I would really like any advice from someone that has had this. My husband kids me that I am now developing stomach problems worrying about Molly

Hi, Molly's Mom - mine had trouble till I got her off wheat and all other gluten-containing things; she's been fine ever since until, as it happens, this evening when she suddenly went floppy and lackadaisical and I rushed off to the vet; she's got a 'puppy stomach bug'. They scanned for any gut problems but don't think it's serious. It was horribly scary, though! Have a look at a food called Ziwipeak, it's what sorted Cuba out (until now, but that's not a food issue!) It's the nearest thing to raw that you can get, seems to cost a lot but v little needed. Keep us posted!

I would also look in your area for a holistic Vet. Just google it for your area. I just moved and that's how I found our new Vet. I had one in the past with my poodle who was having trouble and she had amazing ideas, with no drugs! Hope thing get better soon for your sweet little Molly!

Thank you for the advice. Molly's stomach issues has been she throws up several times in a day. It was just first thing in the morning so we thought it was because her stomach was empty. Then she started throwing up at other times. The vet xrayed her and she said the X-ray was fine. She is now on special food and several different meds. She has been doing better but last week she had a set back. She is doing better again so I am hoping we may have the right combination of meds and food. She is the most amazing fur baby we have ever had so it is twice as hard on all of us,lol. Thank you all again.

Hello, Molly's Mommy here again. We are still dealing with the vomiting . She seems to have good periods of no problems and then we are back to square one. She is on lots of meds and special food but still the same problems. We are going back to the vet tomorrow . The vet has never did blood work on Molly. I just wondered if we should have done this earlier. All I know that Molly's stomach problems are giving me stomach problems. I have talk to her breeder and she said she has never had this problem with any of the other babies. I am just having such a hard time worrying about my baby. I lost my golden this time last year and she had been sick for a long time. She was 11 yrs and I guess I was praying to have a healthy baby. I thought this breed were pretty healthy. Thanks for letting me to vent(and cry) on here. I know you all understand how important these babies are to us.

Poor Molly. I hope she feels better soon. If it would make you feel better why don't you ask the vet to run some bloodwork? I'm not expert on tummy troubles so I'm not sure what an odd bloodwork result could mean. It seems like you're doing everything you can, what does your vet say the problem is?

I am so sorry Molly's Mom that you are going through such a tough time with Molly. I can feel you pain. It's very upsetting to us when our little ones are not feeling well and we don't know what to do. Poor Molly. I hope the vet can figure this out for both of you. Hang in there and vent or cry to us whenever you feel the need. We do care.

This is so sad to hear. My heart goes out to you and Molly. I'm so sorry your little Molly is having such problems. Could it be an allergy to the food? It sounds awful to be on so many meds. Can't help but wonder if they are also causing the nausea! Maybe a second opinion should be in the plan? I'm saying a prayer for Molly! Please keep us posted.

Teemo also has sensitive stomach. He probably has solid stool 5 days out of the month =/ He's sensitive to everything and worst part is he's so picky with food.
