Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Did your veterinarian get a sample of the urine to test? What is the name of the powder she was put on?
Okay thanks for the additional information. Is she still having the diarrhea? If she is than she may need a little more time for the medication to kick in (maybe or day or so) or she may need to be placed on a bland diet for a couple of days to rule out if the change in diet may be causing the problem. Also you may want to have the urine tested if she is still urinating excessively to rule out an urinary tract infection
She seems to be on the right medication to cover any intestinal parasites or other causes of diarrhea. Seems like the next best thing would be to try a bland diet like boiled chicken and white or preferably a prescription diet to see if it helps. Also you may want to ask your veterinarian about prescribing a probiotic as well. What type of dog is she?
Okay she is a nice looking dog. It may be a dietary sensitivity which can be easily confirmed with the bland diet Most veterinarians prescribe the diet Hill's i/D or Purina EN to help in those cases. The common probiotics that are prescribed include Propectalin and Proviable.
