Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

These symptoms that sweet Marley has sounds like Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). This condition is related to abnormalities in the immune system and can only be diagnosed with biopsies. It is a common condition in this breed. The treatment for this can be complicated but a hypoallergenic diet such as Hill's ZD and Metronidazole along with corticosteroids.

Ask your vet about this. This LINK will explain in more detail.

Does that make sense to you?
