Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, I'm sorry to hear about your dog.
It sounds like your dog has some bad colitis (inflammation of the colon). This can be due to infection, stress or even food allergies. Usually it will resolve on it's own over 7-10 days but it sounds like your dog is not getting any better. I would hope that one of the meds your dog is on is Metronidazole. This is what I would put the dog on as it will resolve diarrhea in 2-3 days. If she is still within 24 hours of going to the vet then it may not be resolving yet. I'd keep giving them and usually by 48 hours it starts to firm up some and have the consistency of soft serve ice cream- sorry for the analogy.
If it's still not any better tomorrow, then you may want to try some Immodium. I would check with your vet first as I don't know what she was given. I dose Immodium at 0.05-0.1 mg/lb twice daily.
I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
Thanks for your reply the antibioticsI have are metro.Liquid and Albon Liquid. Is her anus so swollen an inflammed due to all the diarrhea? It is really swollen and she keeps scooting and licking? Blocked anal glands wouldn't have caused this right? And the vet would've noted that on exam right? You have given me some hope.
Thank you. She is doing great! Solid stools finally and I have been putting Vaseline on rectum. God Bless U! Best of Luck!
