Max the Dachshund
Age: 8 years old
I adopted Max when he was 4 years old. For 3 ½ years, we struggled to get his diarrhea, vomiting and allergies under control. He is now an energetic 10 1/2 year old pup! I’d like to thank you for providing the test. You improved the quality of life for my dog Max and me.
Max had loose stools and bouts of extremely painful diarrhea. In addition, he would not finish his food. His mom tried several high quality, grain-free foods and even started to cook a limited ingredient diet for him. The attending veterinarian would run a battery of tests for pancreatitis, parasites and other conditions – none of which were causing his symptoms. Eventually, the only thing that would alleviate his symptoms was Metronidazole. He was also diagnosed with seasonal sensitivities and was on allergy medication for up to 5 months per year.
NutriScan showed that Max has sensitivities to beef, rice, and white fish.
After finding a suitable food, Max improved immediately. Now, his stool is firm, his seasonal allergies are almost nonexistent and he gobbles down his food as if there is no tomorrow. He occasionally has biannual episodes of sensitive stomach (slime in stool), which is treated with a 5-day antibiotic treatment. However, it never gets bad and he doesn’t seem to be in pain.
