Gustav started losing weight and literally went from 132 to 107 pounds! Additionally, he had chronic diarrhea with gas rumblings in abdomen. The poor thing was also suffering from the stress of a loss of housemate as well as reluctant to eat and play. Whenever he was taken off a turkey and sweet potato diet his bowel problems returned. The attending veterinarian confirmed that Gustav had inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and prescribed corticosteroids and Zantac before meals.
Nutriscan showed that Gustav has reactions to chicken, corn, white fish, lentils and oatmeal.
The reactive foods were removed, especially oatmeal, which he had been eating. His new diet includes turkey, sweet potato, and added bison, venison and marrow bones, plus mixed vegetables. He gained back 20 points rapidly, has a firm stool, and resumed his playing and eagerly eating.
