I am looking for some advice and guidance for Whiskey (1 year and 5 mo old mini golden doodle). He recently had 3 bile vomiting episodes in the mornings spaced over 2 weeks. His stool also started becoming a little soft at the end. He was a little gassy which he has never been and has not been very interested in food. He usually gobbles it down and I have to slow him down using a slow feeder. Now, he takes some coaxing to start eating.
I took him to the vet and they did a fecal, pancreatitis test, and CBC to be on the safer side as he has recurring issues due to a sensitive tummy. The fecal came back negative, the pancreatitis test was also normal. His CBC was normal except for a high lymphocyte count which the vet thought was not of any concern as it has been up and down with him over the last few times we had a CBC done and he is always scared whenever we visit the vet.
The vet's treatment plan right now is to put him on antacids for 5 days and continue with his original food and add the probiotics once the antacids are done. Its been 4 days and while we have not had any vomiting so far - his stool has improved but it is still a little soft at the end.He is still a bit gassy too. When I spoke to her about it today, she recommended putting him on Tylan powder. Is that the correct way to go here? I know Tylan is milder than metronidazole but I guess I am checking in with you guys to see if it would be the right decision here.
Food Choice: I have been wanting to switch his food from Purina Sensitive Skin and Stomach Salmon to Wellness Simple Salmon and Potato but have been delayed due to his senstive tummy.
Probiotics: I have tried proviable with him for about 30 days but that just gave him softer stools. He does very well with Well and Good Probiotic Soft Chews.
