Racquet has the runs need help

Racquet started throwing up Sunday and yesterday he had the runs all day and night.

I tired chicken and rice and it is not working. I looked up info on the forum and noted to try beef and rice which I gave him this morning.

I had a pet sitter with him from Thur. to Sunday evening and it looks like she was feeding him alot of Tripet ( I give him only one tablespoon).
Should I give him pepcid?

Thanks for your help.

Elayne and Racquet

You might want to try pumpkin - not the pie filling variety but plain. Also, you may just want to withhold food and just let him have water until his tummy settles down.

Elayne, Kubrick went through something similar and I wound up just taking him to the vet, though I waited 3 days on chicken and rice before that. It turned out to be an intestinal bug. He put him on a canned Low Residue diet (made by Iams) and antibiotics and it worked like a charm. I would try the chicken and rice (or beef and rice) for another day or so and if it doesn't work I would definitely take Racquet to the vet.

Here's the thread I started when Kubrick was sick:

I'd do the white rice if I were you and keep an eye on him. I don't know what Tripet is? I really feel for what you are going through, Rufus had the runs on Sunday.

Racquet has the Runs NON STOP

Hi All:

I stayed home with Racquet all day because he had to go ouTside every half hour, I finally caLLed my Vet and she was not in to-day, however, another Vet returned my call this evening and left a prescription for him to be picked up in The morning. Racquet went all night on the bathroom floor and tried to make it outside but missed and ruined the carpet with such a huge mess in the middle of the night. I think his "runs" are not normal (like water) and will have to put him on the medicine. Has anyone had this problem of non-stop runs?
I bought the pumpkin but he would not touch it. He ate some meat and rice this evening but it went right thru him..
Thanks for your response.
Elayne and Racquet

Elayne..

Sounds like he could have a bacterial infection. I would take him right in to the Vet in the morning..

Is he drinking water?? Non stop runs can make a dog dehydrated..if he is not drinking, I would give him some water with an eye dropper.

Elayne, I seriously recommend buying the Low Residue diet can from Iams. It really worked wonders on Kubrick and Jane has mentioned that she has given it to Lincoln and Scout and that she now always keeps a can on hand. Get some when you're at the vet picking up Racquet's prescription tomorrow. I hope he feels better soon!

Sure hope Racquet is feeling better soon. I agree with everyone else....make sure he is getting some water, use the medicine and canned IAM's, as that has worked for others, and maybe have a stool sample checked.
So sorry you are both having to go throught this...

Elayne,

I sure hope Racquet is feeling better this morning.
I know it has to be scary.
