Is there anything more we can do to stop Tara becoming depressed, obviously she cannot tell us whether or not she is in pain and the PDSA can only offer limited services, she is currently suffering with diarrhea.

Hello again, Very glad to talk this over with you further ... Unfortunately there will be very little you can hope to do to help Tara on a home remedy basis, it does sound as if she really needs specialist veterinary help. Over the counter pain killers such as aspirin are contraindicated in cases of colitis but there is probably a range of prescription drugs your vet can arrange which can often help. Sorry I cannot offer anything more constructive ... Regards, Scott
