[Share] Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Bloody Diarrhea

Hi all,
I like to share with everyone my experience that I and my fury go through these few months.

My fury is a 8yr old JRT (@ 2014), he was diagnosis with Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
It so stressful. Till to now i visit 4 clinic. What i learn about this disease, is all about finding correct diet (for my case) .
*IBD can be Bloody Diarrhea or just Diarrhea only, on & off

So i google (the more i read the more i confuse), i also join IBD Facebook to find out more.

Some owners give long term steroids (which I don’t want) therefore you can see the number of times i visit pet clinic. I tried, Hill's Z/D, Hill's I/D, steam chicken/pork all dont works.

You can see the list of food I tried.

Before his IBD start, he was on Solid Gold kibble (till age 6), i switch to K9 natural dried because i notice he always had yearly normal Diarrhea. He was good for a year when he is on K9 natural dried but sadly, he is diagnosis with IBD now

Current Diet @ 2018
Current Diet:
Raw Rawr Venison Frozen Pure - one protein raw diet. (i give the lowest fat, Venison is around 2% fat only)

Supplement:
1. bene-bac plus powder (probiotics) - i ship from tb, but seller import from USA. USA now nt able to ship powder so no choice.
2. Hepavite Capsules (Liver Supplement) (Since he got Steriods before, had to add this to protect his liver)
3. Milk kefir (once a while) - he seen to be dont like to eat this now.

Works well but try other diet (for backup)
1. Ziwipeak Venison
2. Royal Canin Anallergenic
3. Probiotic Miracle by Nusentia

Tried Diet (Maybe not suitable for him)
Duck + Potatoes (HCF)
The Honest Kitchen
Science Diet Z/D
Science Diet I/D
Organic Oatmeal
Royal Canin Hypoallergenic
PRIMAL raw Freeze-Dried

Thing that he had to be avoid now
- Corn (base on allergic report)
- Rice (base on allergic report)
- Barley (base on allergic report)
- Tomato (base on allergic report)
- Carrot (base on allergic report)
- Chicken (when I am doing eliminated diet)
- Pork (not tested but he got flare up even after med so also must avoid)
- raw Iceberg Lettuce (he got flare up when we random feed this to him)
- Fish Oils omega 3 (Nt sure isit this cause it as i only give 1 gel, nt to give unless u know the source where it come from)

A Must Med for every flare up
Steriods
B2 injection
IV drip (gd to give)

--------------------------------------
What is Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)?
I been google and it say to do with their intestine. Asked vet, vet say is something like sensitive stomach, allergies to some foods that cause the intestine to had inflammation for most common dogs. So try to fix the diet first before try other things.

Fifth time visit vet (United Veterinary)
As usual, my dog start to show some symptom like vomit and bloody Diarrhoea

Had a chat with vet, she told me she suspect IBD or cancer, but saying my dog was too young to had cancer.
To cfm both, i need to do endoscope & Biopsy. I was pretty confuse not sure what to do. As it been on and off, I decide to go for steroids 1 month treatment.

When give steroids, it always a must to give liver supplement

As what i go through, my advice for u is go for endoscope & Biopsy thn steriods. Because it need a mth to wean off steriods before you can do endoscope & Biopsy.

I lost my bill somehow.
Here is what Vet prescriptions:


bloody Diarrhoea

The day of endoscope & Biopsy

It really a hard decision to do endoscope & Biopsy as IT IS NOT CHEAP!
but than i had no idea what i am dealing with (after visit vet clinic 1 & 2), it on and off. The clinic is open concept so i was able to view how they do endoscope & Biopsy. I see what inside my fury, vet was shock as he find no bleeding inside as he tot he poop bloody. I wait for about 1-2 week for lab result.

If i able to meet vet clinic 4 (if he come back early), i save alot



I went back 2 day later as he seen to be not OK after endoscope


Biopsy Report


Diagnosis by Endoscopic:
Stomach: Mild to Moderate Lamina Propria fibrosis, Mild Lymphoplasmacytic Eosinphilic Gastritis
Duodenum: Moderate Histiocytic, Plasmacytic, Eosinophilic Duodenitis, Mild villus blunting
