Progeny registration number:
Comments... Severe weight loss; chronic diarrhea. All of the usual tests were run with additional to determine if there were parasites or bacteria not detected in the usual tests. Nothing showed up. Everything was in the normal range. Vet diagnosed IBD. Different foods were tried. Nothing helped. Grant was a happy, healthy boy until age 9. His normal weight was about 90-95 pounds. He weighed 77 when he died but he looked like a bag of bones. Nothing would put weight back on him. We tried everything. I knew he was going to bloat/torsion, I just didn't know when. His mother died from bloat at age 4. We did get Grant to the vet before he died a little after midnight, but it was too late. He died before he could be prepped for surgery. His cause of death is listed as GDV. Please note answer to above question: Breeder notified of cause of death? I had to put "no" because the breeder is deceased.
