Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi this is Dr. Hill. I was an emergency veterinarian for 15 years before going into day practice. I have a couple of questions for you about Pepper. Did he have any bloodwork or a fecal exam? Was the medication metronidazole? Does he get any people food, chew on plants or has he had any aspirin or anti inflammatory medications?
Hi this is Dr. Hill. Sounds like Leela had a large amount of stool. If it is not soft, or contain mucous or blood and Leela is eating and drinking okay, then I am not typically concerned with an occasional larger volume than normal. If she is straining and only producing small amounts of stool, but more frequently then there is the possibility of colitis (inflammation). I recommend that you drop off a fecal at your local veterinary hospital to screen for parasites. Keep and eye on her eating and drinking as well. If you note any mucous, blood or straining, then she needs to be in for a physical exam. Feel free to post additional questions. Take care.
I apologize, this got cross posted.
