Diarreha


Buster has had diarreha for the past two days and nights. He woke us up at 4 am by going on our floor and he has proceeded to keep it up every couple of hours. He's eating and drinking and playing and my husband is convinced that it's just the turkey hot dogs that Buster ate working its way out of his system. (how did he get turkey dogs? my husband fed them to him under the table when I wasn't looking ).

I'm worried, but should I call the vet yet? Am I making a big deal out of nothing?

yes bring him to the vet.

when this happened to Henry a few weeks ago I fed him boiled chicken and rice only.
The vet gave him some little pills that took care of everything.
Also made sure I let him rest and I had him stay in and use pee pads.

feel better Buster

Hope he feels better. I'd at least call the vet since it's Friday, they can dehydrate so fast! If my DH did that he'd be the one doing all the cleaning involved! LOL

I tried to get my dh to clean up the mess, but I just have to reclean it afterwards. My dh, no matter how many times I show him, always 'forgets' to use a wet cloth to clean up after spraying the urine gone. Consequently, I end up with all the puppy cleaning duties and my husband learns nothing and keeps feeding the dog human food. My dh is in the dog house!

Update: just called the vet, it was the turkey dogs for sure. Buster is fasting for the rest of today, and getting a bland chicken and white rice diet over the weekend. Nice going dh!

you might want to call yoru vet and ask if you can give your dog peptobismol. we are having diarreah issues with django as well and he suggested a 1/4 teaspoon to help balance his belly out. just an idea.

Hope Buster's diarrhea improves quickly. The bland-diet chicken and rice usually works very well.

DH would be fasting too because I sure wouldn't be cooking for him!

My kids and my husband don't realize why I get so upset when they do things like that. They just don't seem to understand how much extra work they create for me!

Petco has an antidiarrheal for dogs. Basically contains the same thing as Kaopectate but takes the guess work out of how much to give. I couldn't get either of my two to take it though. It doesn't smell very good and obviously tastes worse.
