Gracie Update

Hi everyone...I just got back from the vet. We are still dealing with off and on mucous stools with Gracie...they go from soft, to really runny with mucous, to normal...over and over. He wants to put her on Flagyl. They have run two stool tests, both normal...but he suspects giarrdia.

She is doing great otherwise...eating, gaining weight, and full of energy.
When I got her at 18 weeks she weighed 6lbs and now at almost 21 weeks she weighs 6.11. Her mom is 10 lbs and dad is 8. I suspect Gracie will be more then 10lbs though at the rate she is gaining...lol.

Here she is a couple of days ago. Still dealing with the tear stains, but with the daily face wash, they are getting a little better.

Is it a liquid or a pill?
If it's a pill you can wrap it in cream cheese to hide it.

Karla--both of my dogs have been on flagyl and it worked wonders to clear up the diarrhea. It came in a square chew--chicken flavored. Roxie was small so she only had 1/2 per dose.

Did Gracie get the chew or a pill? If Gracie hates the version she has, you have to hide it in something else. Some dogs love their pills in peanut butter.

It is a pill...I'll try hiding it in a wellness treat or some thing...bummer that my vet didn't have the flavored one...but he isn't that sophisticated. LOL
She seems to feel fine...so that's the good news...
