Spoke with a vet tech at a different office - better hours. She actually recommended meeting with 2 of the 5 vets that work out of the office - the ones that are willing to listen. Will talk with gf and make an app't for when one of them are in and we can go together.
Spycar, to me it makes sense that amylase would be low but what do I know.
Kibble really only existed for the last hundred years, stemmed from steel shortages during the war. I have to chuckle when people or vets try to make you believe that dogs evolved in the last hundred years. They can adapt to survive on different food items, but my oh my, vegans eat more that some of these kibble fed dogs.
I have broken the PMR diet for a few days, and will continue to do so for at least a couple more days. This dog hasn't been getting enough water, boiled down a whole chicken in a gallon of water, removed the bones and have been feeding broth and chicken as small meals. Last night I made dog soup - cut up some sirloin, couple of organ blocks, little bit of grated carrot and celery. He loves it. And it's mainly to get the fluid into him, and give him GI a rest.
His feces has been thick, dark and gluey. Finally had a poop this morning, size of my index finger and 8" long. This is the first poop in 2 days, not good. Hoping the extra fluid will help him along - then he goes back to raw.
As a side note, still feeding a bit of thyroid here and there, he's doing great so far. Think the next step is the full T3 panel and anything else missed.
