Question: Mass Lesion in Colon & IBD
My five-year-old Havanese, Coco, was just diagnosed with a mass lesion in her large intestine/colon as well as probable IBD and symptoms of food allergy in her small intestine (this, after upper/lower scope). She has also been having seizure-like incidents where she can't support her upper back leg; this may be due to pain from the lesion.
Has anyone ever experienced such an illness? Our next step is a special CT scan so the internal medicine specialist and surgeon can determine exactly where the mass lesion is located: in her colon or pelvic cavity.
We're also having a really hard time getting Coco to eat. She was doing well on Stella & Chewy's raw freeze dried; then she started having the "seizures" and the neurologist made take her off of it. A nutritionist started her on home-cooked, which she didn't do well on - and then we tried 2 kinds of Hills Rx, now Royal Canine Rx. Today she's going back on Stella & Chewy's.
Any advice would be appreciated.
