PostSubject: Any ideas for chew toys, for IBD dog?   Fri 10 Feb 2017, 11:22 am

We adopted Millie from a rescue four months ago, and she's since been diagnosed with irritable bowel disease (possibly why she was abandoned, we think ... ).  She's on a strict diet of Purina HA food (nothing else), but we have established before she went on to that that she can also tolerate venison.  She's got a huge amount of energy and I'd love to find her something to chew on (she's only interested in destroying things, of course:  stuffed toys of any sort last around 5 minutes) to keep her occupied.  I've recently been trying deer antler, which she adores, but I don't think it's doing her system any good, as the diarrhoea has come back a little bit and she's lost a bit of weight again since she started with them.

If anyone has any ideas for anything I could give her to play with/chew/destroy (bearing in mind her IBD) I'd be really grateful!

Shame about the antler bars as they last for ages.

You could buy a kong extreme, mix her kibble with water and then stuff it into the kong and freeze it.

Would you consider a spring pole in your back garden? I used to tie a piece of cow hide to mine and they went mad for it, I had to ensure that they didn't eat it but it's a good form of excercise especially if she likes playing tuggie

Many thanks - like the idea for the Kong stuffed with frozen kibble - especially as the weather seems to be getting warmer!

She's certainly very pretty - just need to get her to put a bit more weight on!

Thanks again for the Kong idea. Have been mixing some of the food with water and stuffing the Kong with it, unfrozen - works really well!

Great news, there is an old post somewhere with Kong recipes that you may be able to adapt to her diet, I'll see if I can find it
