Default Diarrhea help :(

In the past five days Runy has been like crying and screaming and I'm guessing it's for pain or I don't really know why. Until today he has only done it once or twice a day but today when I took him out to take a walk he started doing it and then when he pooped it was diarrhea. After pooping he ate grass and two minutes after he was pooping again and it was the grass. He's been screaming and crying for five hours or so. I am taking him to the vet in aboit two hours but doess any of you have an idea pn what could be happening to him? I am very worried I don't want anything bad to happen to him.

I don't really know why that could be.. Have you made any recent changes in his diet or daily schedule? Those things can sometimes cause diarrhea. I know that canned pumpkin in their food helps with diarrhea, which the vet may suggest, and chicken and rice is also a suggestion that the vet may give. Is he eating and drinking normally?

It sounds like he has a really upset stomach. Canned pumpkin may help, but the vet should be able to tell you for sure what's going on. Keep us posted!

If he is screaming in pain it isn't just diarrhoea. I would be worried it might be a blockage, please update us after the vet visit.

I would take him to the vet as soon as possible. A bit of diarrhea can be treated at home but if he has been in serious pain for days a vet check is really in order.

Hope he feels better soon.

It's the screaming that's worrying me. I'd take him to the vet as soon as possible.

When my Chi's are vomiting or have diarrhea, I give them a little canned pumpkin mixed with white rice. I also sprinkle Slippery Elm powder (can find at any health food store) onto the mix, as slippery elm is safe for dogs and helps with digestive issues. It has helped in the past.

Keep us updated and good luck!

Thank you for your help and support and also sorry for not keeping you updated. After the vet visit, little Runy was under observation for a day to control the screaming and I had no Internet access until yesterday.
Thank God everything is good now. It turned out he had parasites and was developing an infection, that was the reason for the screaming. Poor Runy was in pain but after taking the meds, I'm glad to say that his stomach is doing so much better!

OMG poor little guy. good think you got him to the vet. Glad he is feeling better. The chicken, rice and pumpkin may be a good idea for a few days until he belly is back to normal. I give mine pumpkin and plain yogurt to keep thier digestion in order.
