Customer Question

my yellow is 10 and he's being going through bouts of loose stool. We automatically start him on chicken and rice. The last time we took him to our vet who said he had what they call Garbage gut. We were given anitbotics and probioctics and all was good until this morning 7/22/16 he has it again. I must explain that he has the fatty lumps all over him and I get him checked just about every three months. But as far as his energy and playing and mooching food(which we really dont give him junk) just some fruit and veggies and plain greek yougart. Iam so worried because he's like a service dog for me, because I have PTSD from Viet Nam and he" always with me.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Did the vet do any tests?

What does the diarrhea look like? Any blood?

If you press on his belly, does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, rocks, plants, chemicals, etc)?
