We have an 11yo Toy Fox Terrier. His ileo-cecal, the valve between the small and large intestine, stopped working and remained closed causing major bowel obstruction. They removed that and a small portion of his colon and x amount of small intestine. Pathology only showed inflammation and no cancer. The vet's called him an anomaly and admitted they really didnt know what caused it. The problem is his stool is very thin, watery at times. They suggested adding fiber to bulk up his stool and made no real difference. The weird thing is there is no odor or very little. The vet basically said we were on our own to figure out what is best for him. We've tried plain yogurt, Bene-Bac (bacteria), Science Diet ID, boiled chicken, rice. and oatmeal. He is gaining very little weight. There are days he doesnt eat much and just lays in his box and other days he cant get enough to eat. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. We dont let him gorge himself just give him the normal amount for that time of day. Oh, and his stool is a yellowish brown.
