managing bowel disease in my dog
I just joined these forums out of desperation to help my dog. She is a 13 year old lab mix and we found out recently she has a tumor on her liver. It was operable, but she also developed serious bowel disease around the same time, so was not a candidate for surgery. I'm working with my vet, she receives acupuncture and injections about every 2 weeks, which have been helpful. She's mostly on a home cooked diet, though lately she gets whatever she'll eat. I give her a medication for nausea, and one for diarrhea whenever she seems to need it most. In the last week, she seems to feel bad/no interest in eating about every other day. The plan is to keep her comfortable until she lets us know she's had enough. Any ideas on how I can comfort her during this time, or anyone have experience managing bowel disease? Thanks for your time.
