Hello all, newbie here. I have just had to take our boy to the vets as he has been poorly. They diagnosed him as having colitis. We had noticed him being picky with his food. He is on kibble from Tails. We had to start adding water to it to soften. He then just started refusing to eat so we added a wet food to his kibble, also from Tails and then started with the symptoms of colitis. It was awful we thought we was going to lose him. The 1st vet we saw gave him an injection to settle his tummy and omeprazole which we have to give an hour before food and some paste to make his poo more solid. He still refused to eat. After a few days we took him back to the vets and saw someone different who gave him a tablet to help entice his appetite and some antibiotics/anti inflammatory tablets to help with his symptoms and to also help his hips and back legs. His appetite is building back up now but only because we are putting a little grated cheese in his food, Just happy he's eating. I am looking for advice on whether we should be looking at changing his food to something more gentle.
