No expert as I have just got my first puppy but I tried to (very gradually) switch him onto JWB and by day 6 and a 3/4 mix of JWB and old food his poo was liquid. Swapped back and immediately the next poo was fine. Googling suggests that a few dogs do react to JWB like that.
Poor thing. Hope she's better tomorrow. Mine went straight back to a properly formed poo as soon as food changed. Mine came on Eukanuba which I wanted to change but I'm abit wary now whilst he's still little as it wasn't nice.
I started my own thread earlier as I've had a pukey pup tonight. Hoping it is because I've overdone training treats.
rice and chicken or fish for a day or two until tum starts to settle down - you can buy pet mince for 90p or so at pets at home, frozen in a block - should last two days as main meal with rice, but stick to white meat (turkey doesnt agree with my pup).
If puppy is still squitty after a day or two, take to vet please as they can get very dehydrated. Also may have a bug or paracite causing tummy upset
How old is pup? I think many breeders send them off too early, before they are fully weaned. poor little things.
We have always given puppy own food for first week, then gradually introduce new food over the next two weeks, in ever increasing proportions (90:10 old to new > 80:20 etc).
Mine? (I presume as I don't think Meerkats is a pup?)
He is nearly 12 weeks. We got him at 8 1\2 weeks and I switched food after a week. Did it gradually and was at vets on day 6 of switch when soft poo had finally turned to liquid. He was still on a mix of old and new and vet advised to go back to old.
Mine hasn't got the runs now. But he has been sick tonight. I'd (foolishly) decided he was ok with the treats I'd got as he's had a couple a day over last few days and used half a dozen when training. I think it was possibly that and would take him if he is ill tomorrow. He seems fine in himself though.
How old is ur dog, sorry I can't seem to see but would suggest as others, when my 15 yr old gets the runs I don't feed her for 24 hours then give boiled rice and egg or plain chicken - no skin. I have occasionally had to go to the vets who give a painkiller as she has a crampy tummy IYSWIM. If it doesn't settle go to the vet. Is ur dog drinking, hope it passes (excuse the pun) soon.
My dog is 4 1/2 so not particularly a pup (although acts like one sometimes!).
It is yellow and runny. DH gave her a bit of rice earlier. She's at the vets tomorrow tea time as that's the first appointment I could get.
She had poached chicken fillets with plain rice yesterday. I will hold off giving her anything else to eat until we've seem the vet. She hasn't drunk today that I've seen. She keeps trembling which is something she sometimes does when she's constipated, I feel awful for her.
She is covered anyway midori She messes when she's sitting down, hence having to sponge her down a lot, poor thing. The nappy wasn't very effective anyway unsurprisingly!
Yep just swapped straight to the JWB, I know it wasn't the best idea, but we realised we had run out of Skinners duck & rice (thought we had another sack in the store but didn't) and our friend gave us the JWB duck & rice - we assumed it would be similar enough not to cause an issue, plus she was on it for a long time with no problems.
She's at the vets this evening, it was the only appointment I could get, have called again today to check if there have been any cancellations we can fill but no joy. She's very listless and I'm worried.
My dog has had a bad tummy since Wednesday night. I'm giving him just white rice and a smidge of gravy today to see if it helps. No blood in the poo, and he's still running about like a loon (just had us up for the last two nights at 2am to let him out/clear up cow pats). I think it might have been the behaviourist's treats. I didn't think at the time
Vet suspects parvo. She is vaccinated and up to date (although due next one at the end of this month) so really upset she's managed to contract it. Vet is sending stool sample off for tests, she's had an antibiotic shot and has rehydration sachets I'm syringing into her mouth. We're back at the vets in the morning. Scared.
Don't get too scared. I had a litter of puppies that contracted it at six weeks old, this was when it was just rearing it's ugly head in the late seventies, before they developed the vaccine. They all recovered with careful nursing.
The vet said that because she is vaccinated she shouldn't have it as badly as if she wasn't. I feel so bad for her because she just wants to sit with us where it's warm and cosy (sofa) and I don't blame her but she keeps leaking liquid poo and blood so she has to be confined to the kitchen. I gave made her a little bed with an old cushion covered in towels in front of the radiator (she has messed both her beds and they're wet from washing) so hopefully she's a little more comfortable now. I'm spending most of my time with her just stroking her wee head and hoping she feels better soon.
