Our pup has much more manic episodes than shown in the videos. Gulping, licking the floor/walls and trying to get anything in his mouth (carpet, grass, etc). Had emergency surgery as a result the first time before we knew what was going on. He had eaten grass, weeds, small sticks and couldn’t throw them up and nearly caused a blockage. Many trips to the ER. Visits to specialists.After much trial and error over years with our vet he’s on a medication and food protocol that has reduced (knock on wood) the gulpies to 2-3 times per year.Daily:FluoxetineOmeprizoleMetronodazoleBudesonideProbioticsGabapentin (added recently - that somehow fixed his soft stool that he had for years - which doesn’t seem to make sense but actually worked)Food - Only Hills Z/D Wet (He wouldn’t eat Ultamino :-(

When he gets the gulpies he’s incredibly manic so the only way we’ve been able to get him through the episodes and not have them last many days is a combo of Buprenorphine, Cerenia, Trazodone, Reglan, Silio when he’s in true manic state. It eventually gets him in a zone where he’s not as focused on the gulping and stops being a danger to himself. He kind of zones out and stares and then gulps much less regularly and stops licking. It usually takes a few hours to kick in and he zones out and eventually gets comfortable enough to lay down and sleep after about 3-4 hours. Usually he then rests with now very occasional gulps and licks. And he’s usually back to himself after resting for 24 hours.When he’s not having gulping episodes he’s the happiest, friendliest, most loving boy.We are blessed with an amazing vet who treats him like her own and wouldn’t give up until she found a protocol that would reduce the gulpies episodes and get him though the episodes much more quickly.Hope that helps.

So what is your recommendation for a dog w mild IBD?
Pat Williams
02:02:03
Could water impact IBD? Can I place the same type of dog food, but canned as a treat/topper? My dog only eats at night, but a nit here & there through the night - is that okay?

02:03:25
Thank you for your advice on raw diets, and reminder of threats to family members - dogs lick us, etc.
Ian Lopez
02:04:06
How do we sign up our dog for these studies if they are started? Is there a way to be notified of their initiation?
Dorice Stancher
02:04:26
Thank you Dr. Littman!
Lianne and Henry
02:05:06
Have you seen the gulpies in puppies as young as 14 or 15 weeks?
Tamara
02:05:42
Thanks for your comment Mike! My wheatie recently had his first manic episode that sounds much like that, so that is very helpful information...

Wheatens used to be more allergic in the past. I think it has not been as much lately.

I have a 2-1/2 year old Wheaten that had/have gulpies and now recently diagnosed with IBD through the CE-IBD Assay. Is there a study he could join so the researchers have more data?
Laurie Gomer
02:07:37
Thank you for the webinar! Very informative.
Cindy Kanterman
02:07:59
how nutritious are the prescription foods?\
Tasha Shaw-Verbic

Interesting info. We eliminated poultry and the gulpies have stopped for months. I feed raw ( for almost 2 decades) and cooked with veterinary input. We did try chicken again recently and got immediate gulpies.
Sharon Levin
02:09:18
When my Wheaten gets the gulpies, she demands to go outside to eat leaves and grass. Can you comment if this is a problem? It seems to be the only thing to calm her (have tried massaging on neck, blowing on nose, general distractions, Pepcid).
Monisa Nandi

I have a 10yo wheaten whose gi/ibd symtoms are triggered by environmental conditions (spring, fall temps just above freezing). Does this relationship make sense? Possible increase of gi diseases, moulds etc.

02:11:38
I guess I missed this. Can someone send me the link to the recording? Or where will I be able to find it somewhere.

My wheaten gets the gulpies and frantically tries to eat everything in site. Dirt, clothing, dust, grass, anything. The only that stops it is a Cerenia shot at the ER.

The recording will be on the SCWTCA.org website under education in a few days.
