It seems some dogs need to stay on probiotics all the time, not just as a "reboot" like other dogs. Like Jackie said, watch the ingredients. In my opinion, less is best. If you have a food with more ingredients, try one with less. Try a sensitive stomach formula? Carsten was also on Tylen powder for some time and that helped a lot.
This is the first Rottie I had that had sensitive anything. They are over doing things in the breeding department and ruining my favorite breed.
I appreciate the prayers and kind thoughts. I love my boys and it makes me so sad when they are ill in any way.
Thanks to you and Jackie for the info. Nothing I've not heard, but have a hard time doing His food is the best we've found, after trail and error, even doing a completely raw diet. I'm "bad" about table scrapes. I can't resist the sad eyes for food, so if I can't stop doing that, I'll never get to the bottom of it. Sadly, it's me. He's doing better with probotics and the acid reducer pills. He still gets the urge to vomit sometimes, and runs outside and eats grass or whatever (leaves in the winter) He rarely if ever actually throws up, I think he just has that rotten tummy feeling. I give him boiled chicken in his kibble each feeding, to keep protein up. I've not heard of Tylen powder - what is that, and where do you get it Inga?
My rottie has just begun being hard of hearing, and I fear deafness won't be far behind, as the on-set seems rapid. Or, he's just showing his stubberness, and is pretending he doesn't hear me LOL.
Best wishes for Carsten!
