Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) When was Buck's last veterinary appointment? last vaccines? last fecal?2) How long has he been on the kibble? 3) What was he eating prior to this kibble? 4) Any vomiting? 5) Any blood in the stool?
Was Buck adopted from an adoption agency or layperson?Do you have a copy of the veterinary work that as performed?Is he still on just the chicken and rice kibble? No human food? no treats? Just his kibble and water?
Thank you for the additional info. Have his stools improved at all?It does not look like a fecal exam was performed, although dewormer was given.
I think until you can have him examined by your vet the treats need to be removed from the diet, they likely aren't helping solidify the stool. Additionally, I would personally move forward to having a fecal exam done. It doesn't appear that it was performed beforehand and he could have any number of intestinal parasites contributing to the symptoms. You've really done as much as you can at home and this has not resolved in over a week.
Checking in. How is Buck doing?
