After the week, she seemed better but started up again after 4 days. She's not allowed anything but the Pro Plan, rice, egg whites, and boiled chicken. The Vet put her back on some of the metrozidasole until the first when we can afford more bloodwork and tests.
She gets really sick and the poop just runs out of her. The gas is very strong and she just doesn't seem to feel well. Had anyone else experienced this with their dog?
Last time my dog was that bad it was a combination of colitis and a sensitivity to chicken. Stress and anxiety triggered the colitis and the chicken just kept it going. What worked for my dog was fasting him for 24 hours (luckily he was off his food) then getting all chicken out of his diet. I made him homecooked food of lean ground meat and cooked sweet potatoes, kept him on that for a good 3 days, then slowly started mixing him his chicken free dog food.
Try 50% lean ground beef cooked and what little fat is in it drained off, and 50% baked sweet potato (discard the skin) mix together and see if that helps.
