Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
I am sorry to hear you are worried Max. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
It sounds like Max has colitis, inflammation in his colon. This can cause the lining of the colon to be swollen so that there can be a lot of straining to pass liquid, runny or mucous stool. How long has he been doing this? Is he eating? Any vomiting?
The best medications for this problem are by prescription, and you would have to have him examined by your veterinarian for things like metronidazole. It is always a good idea to examine a sample of the stool under a microscope to look for parasites as most worms and other parasites are too small to see by the naked eye.
If he is eating, and not vomiting, you could try Pepto Bismal or Imodium. I would need to know his weight to give you a safe dose.
If he is not eating or is vomiting, he really should see a veterinarian.
Let me know what other questions you have.
I hope you were able to see what I sent. Can I help with or answer anything else? Was this helpful?
