My 13 lb Pekingese
dog has been suffering from diarrhea today. She has had 3 bouts of diarrhea and vomited once. She has required 3 baths due to the diarrhea today. She clearly doesn't feel good.
Over the past week she had a change in diet
which she enjoyed: Merrick brand "Cowboy Cookout". She ate this for several days without ill effect.
Over the weekend, she went swimming in a private pool - one short swim on Saturday and another short swim on Sunday. Each swim was less than 10 minutes.
On Sunday, after her swim, she was dozing in the shade, and my adult nephew started to pat her gentlely. She suddenly startled and bit his finger. She actually held on tight and held on. This of course shocked all of us. I am wondering if this was due to not feeling good, although we didn't know at the time that she didn't feel good. It was out of character.
On Monday we came home but she seemed larthargic. By Monday night she had a gurglely stomach
. She returned to her regular diet: Science Diet, but has not eaten much if any of this food since our return. I offered her an ice cube today, to hydrate her she initially was quite excited to get it, but she let it melt on the floor.
I'm worried about the continued diarhea and the posibility of dehydration.
The diarhea continues to be brown and not yellow bile colored.
