Rocky's been ill :/
Hi everyone! Rocky has been ill for a few days and I was wondering what you guys think. I'm calling the vet in a bit, but it's always good to hear what others think.
He's basically had diarrhoea since Monday, but no other symptoms. He's happy, energetic and acting normal. There is no vomiting, no bloated belly, no sign of pain when you touch his belly, etc. His gums are pink and healthy. He has a good normal appetite.
The first day was bad, he pooped so many times, even if there was nothing left to poop, that blood started to appear in his diarrhoea (probably due to irritation?) and that carried on on and off. We withheld food for the day (even if he was hungry) and by the morning after (Tuesday), his gums were getting pale.
But, we fed him boiled minced beef and rice and it went down well. His gums went back to a normal colour (so we held back from going to the vet).
We've basically fed him that since and he's gotten better each day. Yesterday he only went twice, with no blood at all, but it still diarrhoea.
Any idea what's going on and/or what we could do to help his poop firm up again?
Other info: he's a monthly worm and flea prevention/treatment drop (Advocate) so worms seem unlikely.
