I understand IBD very well. I've spent countless hours researching a cure for Lacie who had been on S&C. She also suffers with severe IBD, a very complicated case having both upper and lower IBD. What I do know is this. What works for one, doesn't work for another. Diet alone doesn't work for all, diet alone can not cure all, especially the complicated ones or those suffering with SIBO, PLE, EPI that can be secondary to IBD. Sometimes a dog needs to resort to meds, it's life or death. There are other drugs that work strictly in the gut with less side effects than metronidazole and prednisone. Fecal transplant is what helped my girl most. Ozone therapy another.
So, I'll stand by what I believe most, 'if you do not know that your dog doesn't have an underlying GI condition, then I would not recommend S&C".
I think you misunderstood me. I never once said diet alone will cure true IBS or IBD. It certainly wasn't a simple dietary change that worked for Jett. It was many things working together for a period of time before I even dared try to get him off the chicken and rice he was on. The key is to heal the digestive tract and many things traditional medicine use only mask or treat the symptoms.

And thank you for getting us back to the original post! Princess Sassy Pants isn't dealing with an IBD or IBS puppy so it's good to get back to original questions and issues.
