Advice/Help.
Hope someone can help me, Yuki gets Diarroria every 3 or 4 weeks, like water, we have taken her to the vets the last time and was given anti biotics which cleared it up,she also had blood tests which showed no abnormalities now a few weeks later its back, we feed her James Wellbeloved since a she was a puppy with a scambled egg in the morning a nd tinned meat in the evening, at the moment she is off her food, i know that we should starve her for 24 hours, but is this common in Akitas or not, should we change food!

Any help advice would be appreciated.

Thanks All

I do find that Akitas have dicky tums/bowels.
Sometimes it can be the feed, i have changed foods several times till i have found the right one for that particular dog.
You can get pro biotics, which has really help get rid of this problem
www.hyperdrug.co.uk/Protexin-Pro-Kolin-for-Dogs-Cats/productinfo/PROTEXPK/
My vet has recommends and sells Imodium capsuls, which also is very good.
I think alot of this is colitis and it is trial and error as to what sets it off.

Hi
We are having the same problems with Kiri. The same as Yuki, about once a month. Been to the vets a few times and got antibiotics and injections. Fine for a few weeks then back again. We have found that through trial and error the least deviation away from her usual food will set her off. She now only has boiled rice with chicken and half of her usual Burns , and a tablespoon of plain yoghurt. Fingers crossed this seems to be working for now. It's a boring menu for her, she doesn't even get treats of any description, as this sets her off again but she seems much better now.
I hope you can get Yuki sorted out, it's a real chore trying to eliminate certain foods but I'm sure you will get there in the end.

athena as always had a very sensitive tummy, if she ate anything she shouldn't then she would be alittle loose. i switched her on to a totally raw diet 3 weeks ago and i can't believe the difference in her. not only are all her poops solid but also don't smell half as bad as they use to and are much smaller. so it may well be worth looking into a raw diet.

Thanks everyone for the good advice,

I think we do need to change Yukis diet, a big decision, raw! or rice and chicken etc, what would consist of a raw diet!

I think it is just finding the right one.
