Piper Is Sick

Piper is our 6 month baby. She is in the hospital right now. She was not herself for a couple of days and not eating. She also had a few little bumps on her belly and her belly was a little red at times. I took her to the Vet on Tuesday of this week. He did blood work and Allergy Testing. That evening she began with very loose stools in fact it was like water. I gave her our rescue recipe of Slipery Elm Bark, but the next morning she continued with the diar. I took her back to the Vet and she has been in the hospital since then. The thinks she is allergic to things and this has caused her to build up toxins in her system. She is on IV and continued to poop blood and bright yellow water all day yesterday.

I am so concerned about her. He did a couple of muscle test for food allergies and says she has a very low tolerance to Beef, Pork and Salmon.

I hope to bring her home later today. Any information you may have about similar situations would be appreciated.

Oh, I'm so sorry. You must be beside yourself with worry.

I'll say a little prayer for Piper on my end.

So sorry to hear poor piper. You may want to feed her something like Natures Variety Raw Chicken Medallions. With allergies to food, I found that raw seems to help quite a bit. With Nature's Variety, you can feed lamb, chicken, turkey, I think Bison too.

I hope she gets well soon!

Chances are if your parents never had kids...you won't either...

My heart goes out to you. I also have a 6 month old and they are so young and precious~still a baby! Ask you vet about HGE. Bloody stools are a worrisome thing and if it is HGE your vet needs to be aware and treat for it right away! I hope they get a firm diagnosis and your little one will be healthy again soon. Hugs to you and Piper.
