I’m a CVT and have a 14 month old lab that has experienced bloat 2-3 times daily for the past 7 months. He has been scoped twice, had a barium series twice, had an ultrasound, and been to Tufts. He has been on a variety of foods from hydrolyzed (Z/D), to his current – a straight turkey diet. He’s been treated for helicobacter twice, and been on autoimmune doses of pred for IBD with no positive effect. Simethicone does nothing to reduce the severity of the bloat. The maldigestion panel is pending. From many Dr.s the same response – “an unusual presentation”. A big note – there is [b]NO diarrhea or vomitting[/b].
Have you ever seen anything like this before, or have any ideas?
