Tummy Troubles

I find Oreo is now pretty sensitive to the stomach because early this morning he had a major poopie monster attack in his crate again. I caught him trying to clean it up AFTER he had already thrown it up, trying to clean it before!! Let's just say, it made my stomach turn. The only thing I can figure it was, was that my 2.5 yr old daughter dropped a piece of avocado, about 1", on the floor and he ate it. We did not give him anything other than that, so I think the cause of the upset was the avocado. Any suggestioins on helping him to firm up his stools? What do you do when you have has stomach upsets? Do havs have sensitive tummies?

I think I read something on one of the treads about pumpkin. Does anyone else remember this.

Pumpkin worked on mine. You can also give them yogurt with the live stuff.
I also hope Oreo gets better. When mine were puppies they would get the poops pretty easy, but I feed them some human food.

Turkey always gives mine runny poop. Im sorry you have to go through that, I would have been sick also.

Stogie is really bad about throwing up, I think he has acid reflux some. He is much better as her gets older.
Good Luck!!!!

yes, a little canned pumpkin should help.

A friend of mine raises guide dog puppies. They get the dog when it is about 10 weeks old and raise it till about 18 months when it goes back for the formal guide dog training. Whenever those puppies get an upset tummy, they have to feed rice and boiled hamburger till they are feeling better.

Thanks so much for the suggestions. I got some canned pumpkin, the pure stuff, and mixed it in with a much smaller portion of kibble. He gobbled it up so fast. If it lasts for more than 24hrs I think I will take him to the vet.
If I make the hamburger and rice mixture, how much should I give him at each feeding? I am wondering because the last time he had that, I was told by the vet to only give him 1 tsp, yes tsp, per hour. That was after his rabies shot, and he didn't do very well. He isn't throwing up, but I am not too sure how much is too much? Thank you again for your quick replies and your kind words of encouragement - that is why this forum is such a great place

I'm not sure how much rice and hamburger to feed. Dusty's never had an upset tummy so I've never tried it. My friend's puppies are bigger than Dusty is right from the start. I'll email and ask how much she gives though.
Maybe someone else can suggest an amount?
