I am new to the forum and really learning a lot. I have had many dogs over my 60plus years. My 2 new Havies have had diarreah on and off for 21/2 months. The 4 dogs, that I have now, have all been treated for parasites with 2 different meds. (Flagyl, Panacur & Albon for diarreah ) the 2 new Havies had bacterial infection in stool so were on Clavamox. The new Havie pup, has been tested positive for MRSA in the urine and is now on chloramphenicol! Fortunately all the other 3 dogs tested negative for the MRSA.
The 2 dogs I have had for years are doing fine. The 2 new Havies continue to have diarreah. I will put them back on white rice and chicken (cooked).
Have you found that this breed needs a chicken diet? The kibble is top brand (Fromm) 3 of my 4 dogs are on it. The new Havie pup is on Wellness puppy canned in addition to the Fromm kibble , the new Havie adult has Wellness 95% chicken with the Fromm kibble. ( Both Havies came from the same breeder just before the Christmas holiday.)
My eldest dog, an American Eskimo Dog, 14yrs old is on raw Instinct. Doing fine.
In addition my 2yr old Havie/Cavaleir mix is doing fine.
Any thoughts for my2 new Havie girls?
As a post script:
I am also having a heck of a time potty training the new baby, who is now 5 months old.
