In the past few month's our ten year old lab, Baylee, has had rapid weight loss, puking, and diarrhea. The vet says it is a reaction to the food he was on (Nutro--senior) and had recommended that we put him on Purina H.A. (Hypo Allergenic) dog food at $80 a bag. The dog hates it and will not eat, which has made him lose more weight. The vet has done all the blood tests and x-rays and has found nothing wrong in these areas. Does anyone else have any ideas??? It is getting to the point that we are now thinking of putting 'Baylee' down but hate this option. He is still very alert and gets excited to see people but cannot move around.
If your Lab has had something similar, I would love to hear how you handled the situation.
Get another vet.
yup....get a second opinion.
