hi everyone i am asking for help with my 3 yr old dog merlin(barnellin morris dancer) when he was 13 months old he was admitted to the vrcc hospital in laindon essex his symptons were severe vomiting and lots of bloody poo looked like road kill .he had every test possible bloods scans endoscopes all were normal apart from giardia in the poo this was cleared up but the problem did not go away, he was eventually opened up and biopsies done on all organs all were normal. he was prescribed steroids as a last recort beacause he was by now laying flat on the floor and skin and bone his eyes were dull and i think he was giving up. within 24 hours the symptoms had cleared and he was eating a little lamb and carrot, he came home and continued to thrive and went onto royal canin sensitive diet when i got him home he weighed 22. kg and he now weighs 34kg shiny coat everything normal until easter this year when it started all over again.he was prescribed metoclopramide,salazopyrin zitav and antepsin and after a week steroids again but only low dose and for 10 days only the vet suggested gluten allergy so he is now on gluten free dog food he has been fine and poos best they have ever been but yesterday he became ill again and wont eat poo is grey and revolting no blood yet but i am getting to the end of my tether the poor dog looks so ill and just lays looking pathetic, during all these bouts he has never had a temperature always normal but he does have very pale gums when it happens. has anybody got any ideas as the vet has run out of solutions other than long term steroids but i dont want that obviously as that i believe creates more problems in the end. so any comments would be appreciated thanks a lot
