    Thanks Alysser. {{hug}}

    Not good news from the vets I'm afraid. He's lost more even more weight and is now only 33lbs (approx). We're keeping him on the same drug, as it is working well to keep him comfortable, and we go back in a month.

    Bob is keeping happy and pretty frisky and as long as that continues ...

    I'm so sorry to learn the news wasn't good. But if he's in good spirits, that helps. I hope he gets better. Hug him for me.

    I did the right thing by setting you free
    But the pain is very deep.
    If only I could turn back time, forever, you I'd keep.
    I miss you


    I hear you whimper in your sleep
    I gently pet you and say, no bad dreams
    It will be alright, to my dog as dark as night.

    Fur as dark as the night.
    Join me on this flight.
    Paws of love that follow me.
    In my heart you'll forever be.
    [/SIZE]



    How I wish I could hold you near.
    Turn back time to make it so.
    Hug you close and never let go.

    Just a suggestion but maybe your vet could try Bobby on Pancrease -V powder. I've seen that work miracles on some dogs. Seems like their system stops producing enzymes to help assimilate their food but with enzyme replacements some dogs go on to live quite a few years. You might be right in assuming that he could have eaten something harsh to destroy his digestive tract.

    Pancreatitis? Celiac's disease? Is it B12 or Omega 3s that do something to maintain the gut? Chris, do you have access to a vet other than a surgeon? If it is food related, or digestive tract related, I haven't had much luck with traditional vets.

    I don't know about Celiacs in dogs, but in people, I have heard that sometimes the things you think would not have anything bothersome in them does. Does it come and go? Or has it just gotten worse, and not better now for a while?

    What are you feeding him, Chris?

    Johanna, his symptoms don't point to Pancreatis but Celiac's may be playing a part. His body cannot tolerate any kind of grains including rice and even gluten free dry food is a problem for him.

    I now feed him on a canned food called Butchers tripe which he seems to tolerate very well.

    Sorry to hear the news wasn't the best. I'm glad he's still in good spirits though. I hope he starts to feel better and puts on a little weight!

    Bobby has gone downhill very fast, over the last 24/48 hours. He can only walk a few paces and can hardly stand. That awful decision, the one all of us dread having to make, has been made, a vet will be here at my home to do the deed sometime after 10.30am UK time.

    Oh Chris, I am so sorry to hear this. A tough decision for you, but one I know that you make totally out of love. Give Bobby a hug for me and take one for yourself too.

    Oh Chris i am sorry . Give your gorgeous boy a hug from me. As much as it hurts and breaks our hearts it's the least we can do for them after their years of friendship and love. Look after yourself.
