History

In the fall of 2016, a 19-month-old 25-kg (55-lb) spayed female crossbred German Shepherd Dog was evaluated because of sudden onset of lethargy and inappetence. In March of the same year, the dog had undergone endoscopic biopsy, and examination of the specimen resulted in a diagnosis of eosinophilic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). At the time of the evaluation, IBD was being managed medically. This dog had regular access to the outdoors and was known to consume coyote feces. Regular deworming was performed including administration of a 14-day course of fenbendazole (50 mg/kg [22.7 mg/lb], PO, q 24 h) in
