Please can you help me with my puppy's poop and a Royal Canin alternative

Post by Rob55 »

Martha is a 15 week old Cockalier.
She came to me at 8 weeks and had loose soft stools, not runny. She was on Royal Canin Puppy mini food and I was desperate to get her off the food as she wasnt keen and i was aware of the low rating
She was wormed and then had loads come out and was not well with it
She was weened onto Lilys Kitchen (over 10 days) and her poop did not improve
The vets put her on panacur and pro kolin as there was blood and mucus in her stools
They feared she had Giardia
Her poop was sent away to be tested and she was put on Royal Canin Gastrointestial Puppy which she did not like at all and would barely touch
At this point, i was concerned as she wasnt growing at a normal rate
3 weeks on she has had more pro kolin, she is still on the RC GI and her poops are the same, very soft, no mucus and sometimes a tiny bit of blood
I am desperate to get her off the Royal Canin and on to something with a much higher rating. The vets will only recommend Royal Canin and I dont know what to do
Please please can you help choose a suitable food for her.....

Hello, what you said means that the animal has a big problem with digestion and intestines. Even if some vets advise to buy this or that medicine, it does not mean that it will help, because there are unqualified specialists everywhere. I say this as a veterinarian with experience. So change the vet clinic you go to and go to another one. They should be able to help you there. By the way, I once encountered similar incompetence when I was trying to treat my dog. And, by the way, after that incident I decided to enroll in a dog training course - https://www.veterinaryschoolsu.com/training/online-courses/, because I realized I was made for it.
