If you have a dog with IBS and you home cook, can you PM me? I'd be very interested in what type of things you cook for your dog.

My friend has a 7 year old Malt that has been very sick and just diagnosed with severe IBS, and I'd like to help my friend gather info. Thank you.

Thanks.

I have a feeling she will just go with a prescription food, but I am hoping she tries home cooking. Right now, the dog is on an anti-inflammatory and a steroid.

The dog doesn't have IBS then, it has IBD. While IBD often has a dietary component, it is an inflammatory condition hence the steroids. It is important to know the type of inflammation and any concurrent problems before working on a diet.

Thanks Jackie, I am sure that the owner knows. I always get those things mixed up.

Dr. Harveys as a basic diet has worked for our Zoey.
Ditto here. Feeding Jett Dr H's Canine Health is what is working best for him. I'm thinking due to his digestive issues, he is one that needs some good carbs/grains in his food. He can't be on a true grain free food for an extended period of time. Nor can he do raw. The tiniest bit of raw throws his system for a loop. Probiotics is what was a life saver for Jett. I truly believe had I not gotten him on a soft diet and discovered Probiotics, Jett would not be with me today. He was literally starving to death even though he was eating well. He would eliminate everything he ate by vomiting and massive diarrhea. I was really scared there for awhile.
