    DA, I have found PAW Pro Biotic to be VERY successful for the rescues and my own delicate little Bella's sensitive tummy.

    Paw actually allowed me to purchse some of their Pro Biotic which has a use by date of Jan '10 for less than half price at the vet. I paid $22 per tub and they have assured me that this will be fine (if kept in the fridge) for another couple of years. I purchsed a box of 24 and am happy to send a couple over to you if you wish for the price I paid + postage. PM me if you want some, otherwise, you can purchase at the vet for about $49

    Thanks Shar *hoping you would be here soon* Lol.

    I wasn't sure if the vets sold it or I could only get it online. I knew you sued probiotics, and Cleas posted which one above.
    If you have found it works well, I will go and check at the vets if they've got it. If not, I will PM you re payment instructions. VERY appreciated!!!

    Thanks Greys, much appreciated. She's (Inca) just had her daily dose of yoghurt with no issue, but really isn't interested in eating. Groan.
    Could be a good thing to clean her system out, in hindsight.

    Shar, nobody around here seems to keep Paw Probiotic. However, I have managed to get some Prodexin for nothing from a local pet store. It is past it's use by date in a few weeks (hence the giveaway) but at least will give me the chance to grab some immediately and see how I go.

    Thank you so much though for your kind offer of assistance.

    Quite honestly I think animals go through a time of not being terribly interested in food for a while, just like lots of us humans can. I know at times especially in summer that I could not be bothered eating. Maybe experiment more with diet and see if that is encouraging.

    Pretty goes through these, sometimes I think she is not eating at all but she does have choices of the puppy dry or hers and I notice she never knocks back raw.

    I agree with you there Di. Same as my son and I, if we're hot or bothered, the last thing we can do is eat.

    But no, this is looking more serious than that. Getting quite concerned TBH, and have spoken to my vet this afternoon. She is drinking electrolyte fluids this afternoon, and has perked up a fair bit. At this stage, 24/7 monitoring. If no further improvement tomorrow, tests are just going to have to be done. Don't want this happening to her repeatedly.

    Gosh DA didn't realise it was getting so serious.

    I know I worried over the setter for about 6 months, then bang she just changed.

    I can't say she was lethargic, not as high energy as the Kelpie pups I was used to, and she never had an upset stomach or the other end, just used to drink so much that I think she actually filled up on water.

    Hope it all works out and you get some answers soon.

    Yea, does sound like it could be more serious. Can the breeder report if this has happened to any others in the litter or previous litters from this mating?

    Di, the breeder and I are supposed to be catching up together at a show this coming weekend. At this stage, I don't think I'm going to be making it.
    But I will be talking to her this week, nonetheless so will see what feedback she's getting from any of the other buyers who've stayed in contact with her. The vet recommends that when we get to the end of this bout, we keep her on probiotics permanently (well for a fair while anyway) and see what difference that makes.
    She ate this afternoon, a bowl of roast chicken with rice and a spoon of yoghurt, so that was great news for her worry-wart old Mum. Lol.

    It's a hard one, all right. No vomiting or diahorrea (?) whatsoever. Still can't feel any temp, is drinking fine. Just so darned lethargic and off her food with what appears to be an upset tummy again.
