Diarrhea to Constipation & Back Again
Sebastian, my 1.5 year old Siamese, can go from diarrhea to constipation, and then back to diarrhea all within 24 hours. As I posted in another thread, he's been checked for HIV, leukemia, and various parasites including giardia, which we had to clear up. I've tried adding pumpkin (one teaspoon twice a day) to his protein, no grain diet. This helped for a few days but then runny stool returned. I cut back pumpkin to one-half teaspoon every other day and added a smidgen of lactose free yogurt to his pumpkin. Also adding fish oil every other day.
The vet did not say Sebastian has IBD, but I'm proceeding as though he does. Any ideas? Where do I go from here.
The vet wants to do an ultrasound and then possibly a scope at the tune of $375 each. After spending $500 on previous tests I can't keep throwing money at a fishing expedition.
