Default Help with diahrea!!

Bella has always had a really tough stomach. I say that because aside from her normal food she , despite my paying attention as much as possible she will still manage to get ahold of stuff the kids let fall on the floor or leave within her reach and she never had any bowel problems. We went on vacation over xmas and left her with a friend and on the last 2 days she was there she started having diahrea which then continued at home. I thought first it was the stress but it just continued. I tried giving her nothing for 24 hrs ( read this somewhere) and then just rice and slowly introduced her normal food again. It seemed to work for maybe a couple of days vut then diahrea again. She got an injection from the vet which also seemed to help for more than a week and now since yesterday , she has diahrea again!! Dont know what to do!! Otherwise she is totally normal, playing normal and drinking normal. Always hungry when i feed her. Really no other symptoms than diahrea. What should i do??? Is there something else i could feed her that will clear this up? Also, there is no blood in her stools. Normal color just very loose and she goes several times a day. Please help!

Did you get a stool sample tested at the vet? What is she eating? I would try a little bit of pure pumpkin or pure yam puree. Make sure that she's drinking water and if you're worried, you can add some plain, unflavoured pedialyte to her water which will help her stay hydrated.

I second this advice. Just to be sure.What are you feeding? I had an Irish Setter YEARS ago that had ulcerative colitis, and she finally got better when I introduced her to kibble!!! She was on raw beef. The kibble gave her gut something to work on, that the beef just went through. good luck with her.

I would have a stool sample tested, just to rule out a medical issue. A lot of vets will allow you to drop off a sample to be tested if you follow the right protocol.

I give mine a little bit of kaopectate 1 ml per pound of animal in a dropper after they have a runny poop and keep it up till they are pooping normal.

Dont hink i can get that here. Oh well. Made her cooked skinless chicken and rice yesterday and poo looked better this morning. Will just keep at it. My best friend is a vet and thinks it might just still be a bit of stress from having new dog in the house. They love each other but does change thimgs a bit for her. New baby has more energy than she does and she has to share my lap.
