Thanks again!
Lol early for once! Usually Im a night owl, but I've been ill and was in bed by 8 o'clock last night.
Tree Barks powder is mostly Slippery Elm, you can get it in health food shops, I get mine in pet shops, about 6 for a big tub it is made by Dorwest. Harley has a sensitive tummy, and it really makes a difference to his recovery.
I would fast Mylo for no longer than 12 hours as he is a puppy. possibly less, depends how severe the diarrhoea was.
I always feed bone in chicken without fat/skin after an upset tummy, but really tiny amounts. If it stays down and no more diarrhoea, he gets another tiny amount. 4 tiny meals, then 3 the next day, gradually upping the fat levels again, back to his regular 2 meals on the third day. I purposely keep the bone content high.
It has taken a while to perfect, but this is what works for Harley. .he used to get really thin after an upset tummy, with the Tree Bark he bounces back so much quicker.

Thanks Kay, I'll take him in the morning. Am I ok to wait? My vet should be open in 3 1/2 hours.
I forgot to say Stella, I'm sorry you're not well. Are you feeling any better now? I know you're normally up late but I thought 5 was a bit late even for you!

I use the Tree barks at the first sign of sickness or diarrhoea.
If he is well in himself, don't worry too much, it may be whatever has upset him passing through his system. That is why fasting helps, to rest the digestive system.
If he starts to act poorly though, he needs to see a vet.

I just have a bug thing, but thanks for asking. It is passing, but the contant nausea keeps me awake. Harley is up with me, making sure I'm ok, but Bambi stayed in my bed. She gave me the 'I'm not getting up at this ungodly hour' look and went back under the covers.

Haha. Least Harley is looking after you! Hope you're feeling better soon. Thanks Stella. I've been reading some webvet articles and they said not to be too worried unless there's a lot of vomiting or any blood and there isn't. I'll fast him like you said and see if our local health food shop has any of that tree bark stuff. What dosage do you give? Will he just eat it? Do I mix it with food after fasting or give him it straight away? Do I need any of the electrolyte stuff? Do we have any here and if so where do I find it? Sorry for all the questions! Really worried and now very tired too! He still seems ok in himself though. Thanks so much for all your help. I really appreciate it
