Poor Mylo! Hope he feels better soon! Being that he is still young, I would skip one meal and then boil plain chicken breast with white rice, this always works for my guys when they get diarrhea. I wouldn't go too long without food only bc I don't want his sugar to get too low (when Lola was a baby, she was vomiting and had diarrhea, later that night she has a full blown seizure and was foaming at the mouth- I was mortified!)

You can also feed willow the same thing if her tummy is upset or even just to get her to eat bc she cannot afford to miss meals.

He may just have a little tummy bug just like we get from time to time. How is he doing today?

Get well soon Mylo!

Thanks Zorana. There's still some diarrhoea but it's decreasing and he's going longer in between. He mostly seems his usual self; nosy, tail wagging, playing with Willow. He's maybe a little more subdued than usual but I'd put that down to getting less sleep.

I tried to get emergency leave from work but my manager wasn't in so I've asked Rich to come home as early as possible. Hopefully he shouldn't have to be on his own more than hour or so. I just feel so worried about leaving him

You can get the electrolyte stuff at any pharmacy. Get the unflavored stuff. Just ask the pharmacist where it is. Some carry it in the nausea section for children. I give a teaspoon a couple of times a day. Water is fine, but doesn't have the electrolytes in it. Electrolytes sometimes make the difference between a very sick pup and one that has diarrhea. Just remember electrolytes are what the heart needs in proper amounts to beat! That's why in people, babies and elderly are more apt to dehydrate faster than healthy adults.

Hi Melissa, sorry Mylo's not well, the electrolyte stuff here is called Dioralyte and I think you can buy it over the counter. X

From then onwards Mylo kept going the toilet and it was very loose. We've now been up at 3 and half 4 to go the toilet again. He seems absolutely fine. It's business as usual...chewing, playing with Willow, taking treats and tearing around the house. He was chasing her around the bedroom before bed. He didn't really seem to be able to get comfortable in bed but then went to sleep for a couple of hours. Willow is fine other than eating less than usual. I wonder if he generally has a sensitive stomach. His poos have always been very stinky and frequently a bit loose. Since we started venison ZP his poo has been solid 99% of the time but still very stinky. Willow eats exactly what Mylo eats but her poos are always solid, compact and virtually odourless.

What do you guys think I should do? I feel so sorry for my poor guy


my gizmo is not feeling well today either . hope mylo feels better

Thanks everyone. Sorry to hear that, I hope Gizmo is feeling better.

After a it of fasting, slippery elm and some bland food Mylo seems to be acting just like his normal self. He's regained his appetite and we've only had one trip to the toilet since this afternoon and it was mushy but more solid than it was. His little tail is wagging, he's running about with Willow and he's trying to get into my food!

So I feel much better now. I've been so worried all day. Hopefully we're on the path to recovery though.

Thanks to everyone for your advice and well wishes. I don't know what I'd do without the advice and reassurance of this forum.

Hey Melissa, just wanted to say so sorry Mylo has not been feeling well, but I hope he is doing better now. I wish I could add something to the great advise you have been given, but I would have to ask as well if Lulu was ill. Keep us posted.
