Hi Marie!  Well, my Freckie passed away in late August from her heart disease, but she had a really good life and I did all I could for her.  I've since gotten another baby, Mary, a now 5-month-old beagle/terrier mix from a rescue. She's such a good girl, but unfortunately came from a place where she was not taken care of and had worms, mites, fleas, you name it.  Revolution for the mite/flea problem appears to be working and the pimple-like lesions on her skin are gone (after a course of prednisone), but she has bloody diarrhea on a daily basis, which her vet doesn't seem alarmed about.  She's on metronidazole for the second time now without any real improvement.  She's also been on Panacure twice and Droncit for the tapeworm, with the second dose due in a week. She just tested negative for Giardia. I've been feeding her boiled chicken and beef with white rice since this started (almost two months ago)with plain yogurt in the morning and the same with a whole boiled egg added at night.  Sometimes I throw in a little pumpkin.  She eats great and has been running around like a regular puppy until about yesterday when she started sleeping all day.  She's not lethargic but almost seems bored, though she still loves to go out and walk and always wants to eat.  Anyway, her doc suggested IBD/IBS, and I've been reading up on it and her symptoms do sound like this, so I need to know what she can and can't have.  I've heard that treats (and I've only given her the most natural ones I can find) shouldn't be given to a dog with this condition as well as yogurt or egg yolks. Its all so confusing!  If you have recipes for food and treats for dogs with this problem, I'd be most appreciative.  Thanks so much for your help.  Evelyn

The Hill's ID is awful stuff and yes, there are alternatives to the Hills RX diets.

I would like you to cook the following option at 3  small meals per day:
( 3/4 of a cup to a cup at each serving)

To start : very easy ** feed this the first 3-4 days - then Graduate to others:

You can make a low-fat "chicken dog food" by mixing:

*4-5  boiled( Cooked) and chopped, skinless chicken breasts, 1 1/2  cups cooked ( steamed) carrots, 3 cups cooked white rice and 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese. ( Must be 2% or lower in fat**
You should refrigerate any leftovers.

YOU will need to Give 1 Wafer of NuVET Plus Per day
