About Me:
We've had Irish setters in our home ever since we picked up our first puppy when we got back off honeymoon in July 1972. After a few years we bought another puppy to keep our boy young, and then never looked back. Started showing our 4th boy in 1990 and have shown on and off since then. Bred a couple of litters too and had some lovely times rearing them.
Only showing occasionally now.

What can I say about our beautiful, funny, loving, sweet girl? She loved people and bossed the boys (K9) around if she needed to. She played all her life, even when the going got tough for her, which it did in the last couple of years. She never gave…

Thanks a lot Sue! Unfortunately we had to stop RC for a while (still an almost full 15kg bag in our storage) since, after Oberon get sick in October, he became a bit fussy with eating and he never get back 100% ok with his belly (I still have to see 10days in row without a bad stool day...). Maybe at some point we'll try again with RC, but for now he seems better with blander diets (as naturediet with plane meat/rice, actually he's ravenous with this new food;)). Indeed, I have been told that for some dogs dry food can become an irritant, so maybe he's been a bit unlucky and that's just the case for him..Reason I asked is because I was really keen on RC and I was wondering that these blander foods are not enough structured for the growing age, but judging from your answer that's not a big issue, so we'll better stick with what works well for the belly :)

Thanks for the other suggestions as well ! Slippery elm seems to do the job, indeed!

And a big hug to wonderful Steo from his brother :)

Thanks Sue, very interesting and useful to know! I really hope is just a matter to adjust a little bit the diet: since last week Oberon seems ok with the new regime, but yes: he started to be a bit sensitive and refusing RC after he's been sick last October, so finger crossed, I hope its' not something a bit more serious as it was for your girl..

If we give biscuits again he'll look at us as we gave poison.. In part he may have associated them with the bad belly or it may have irritate its stomach, so we don't want to insist.. But we'll never know: also, I guess he now knows there is meat in the fridge, so you can see him thinking "I'd better refuse this and wait for the meat" :0 :0

But, as I said, at least the last week we stopped completely the RC food and he was fine and this is what is important.. so far so good, so finger crossed and thanks a lot for the suggestions, we will try :) Always appreciated from somebody with a so long-standing experience as you :)
