What food (commercial or otherwise) would you reccomend for a Toy Poodle with colitis?
My dog Abby had done well on Iams Low Residue but I was fed up after hearing there was a recall on the dry food. Then i made homemade food without wheat and beef (a recipe from Dr. Pitcairn's book) but with other quality grains and proteins (mostly milk and cheese). Abby did not do as well on the homemade diet so now I am feeding her Purina's EN and she is doing really well. As concerned as I am about the low quality ingredients in these commerical foods, they seem to really help all her symptoms. In your experience, though, have you found something else just as helpful that is "high quality"?
An excellent food to try is a Prescription diet called Hill's I/D. It comes in dry and canned. It's basically a bland diet for dogs with intestinal issues (vomiting, diarrhea and colitis.) It's made to be a nutritionally balanced food and can be fed as long as necessary. Because it's a prescription diet, you can only purchase it from a veterinarian. You can also order it online from the Hill's website.
Hi, Puppyluv. Thanks for answering. I was under the impression from what I read on your hub that Hills was low quality. I did some research and it seems that EN has better ingredients than Hills so we're sticking with that, especially since it seems to be helping. Thanks again for your response, though.

My dog (miniature Poodle) keeps chewing his hair off his hine quarters, how do I stop this?We have tried Dinovite, which my dog won't eat, sulfodine which only give him temporary relief and even bathing him once every other day. Anyone have a better way to remedy this?

It is said they don't make music the way the used to anymore especially if you're my age (30+). What do you think about the quality of music these days in terms of beat, lyrics?
