Hi all, we are dealing with an upset stomach with Kiko. Her belly makes all sort of rumbly noises she doesn't want to eat and sometimes she is in lots of pain. Yes the dreaded Shiba scream. We have taken her to the vet several times for this. With no clear answer to what's wrong. She was given Tramadol for pain and we were told to give her Pepcid also. We have also been given a probiotic to add to her food. All blood test have come back normal. So once again we have a real Shiba puzzle going on. Was wondering if anyone else has seen this or have any ideas on what else we can try?

Other than her belly Kiko is doing great. Most days she still acts like a pup. We haven't changed her food and we were thinking that it may have been some human food that we occasionally give her a taste of, but we have stopped all human food and still seeing the issues.

Kona is doing good also. We are seeing him aging. A little slow slower and more stiff. Poor guy it's tough to get old. Both Kona and Kiko are now both 11 years old wow where has the time gone.

As for little Kaia, well he has good days and bad days. He will be on pain medication for the rest of his life. We are doing everything we can to make sure he is comfortable and happy. With all the pain and such he is dealing with, he is still a lovable little guy. Always so happy. The pain medication for the most part helps him out really well. It's just something that he will have for the rest of his life. It really breaks my heart when I stop and think that he will never get better. I will see if I can remember how to upload some pictures and post some updated pictures.
