Divina is a 2yo FS Mexican rescue mix. Intensely shy but very sweet. She came to me in the spring with intense borborygmi, grass-eating, vomiting bile, copraphagy, stool balls of grass, mucoid stools, super skinny, and a ravenous appetite. Her tongue was lavender, thin, and moist. Her pulses wiry but toned. I put her on Sulcrate temporarily and YGJ for the ST Heat, Blood deficiency, and Qi Stagnation. It seemed the perfect fit! And it helped some but not enough. The owner has her on a healthy cooked diet and she was still very ravenous with borborygmi. The stools initially didn’t clear perfectly so I tried HZYQS but no change. The o insisted on Metronidazole as it was going on too long. Did a course of that, then Tylosin and stools WNL. Tried some BZYQT. No change. Added Probenz probiotics with digestive enzymes. No change.
I ran a full blood panel - WNL. Then a TLI, folate, and cobalamin. All WNL. I’m at home and can’t remember any other details - I’m sure I’m missing something. She is still very ravenous with borborygmi you can hear across the room! She now is normal in weight at least. She “looks” very healthy. Our next step is an abdominal ultrasound.
