16 weeks old, been here 4 weeks nearly. Poos never really that solid but now really runny! He has pooed in the house three times since yesterdy despite being clean for 12 days. I'm guessing this is because he couldn't wait and needs to go more frequently and I wasn't quick enough with a toilet dash. He is eating and drinking fine but I really can't cope with days of diarrhea without a solution in sight. What should I do? He is on Beta Puppy food but was on Royal Canin from the rescue. He drinks from muddy puddles on walks despite my best attempts to stop him as they are abundant with this weather! Help!
If he has never really been solid since you had him has he been wormed recently with a good quality product. If yes then you really need to see a vet to rule out infectious causes before changing diets.
thanks, I have already got vets appt booked. He has been for a walk and seemed fine but when we returned he dudn't even boter dashing to his food bowlblike he usually would and he didn't even pester me when I was preparing my lunch
My boy had the same thing at the same age. It turned out to be colitis. Vet said fast him for 24 hours then put him on Hills I/d food (its specifically for digestion issues). Sorted him right out. Weaned back onto his normal food.
Well he now has antibiotics, a paste for tummy bacteria and three days more worming pills plus royal Canin sensitive puppy food. Hope this works! He has had two of the three doses today and still runny pops so am hoping it'll begin to improve mattes in a couple of days
WTF With Bailey it took 2 2kg bags of food before he was quite right. I can't remember quite how long that took but I'm thinking at least 3 weeks. He was on antibiotics for 6 days as well. I think in the space of 3 weeks he had to be fasted twice. It was a few months ago so can't quite remember.
