Medicine Help, Loose Stools and Tear Stains
Marble boarded at the kennel/doggie daycare for 2 days (Saturday and Sunday). I picked him up Mon morning, and he was fine. Tuesday night he started having diarrhea. An interesting side note is that he suddenly developed tear stains since Tuesday. Could it be an allergy to the spa bath he had or a symptom of his sickness? I'm baffled.
This time I didn't take him to the vet. He got diarrhea the last several times boarding. The vet tested him, and he was fine. She said that it was his nerves and anxiety. Well, to get to the main point of this, I am trying to give him 2 teaspoons of a medicine to treat diarrhea from Nature's Path, and I can't get him to take it. I tried to let him lick it, but he only licks a small amount. He won't take it mixed with his food, and I'm trying to squirt it
in with a medicine dropper, and he's fighting me. I've also been trying mixing in a little pumpkin with his food, but he tries to avoid it. Does anyone have any tips? Thanks.
