Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
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) What breed is he? 2) How long have you owned him?3) How many veterinary visits has he had? 4) How many vaccines have been administered by your vet? 5) When was his last fecal test and deworming? 6) Have there been any diet changes or human food given?
I can give you some steps to take at home to help alleviate the loose stools which may be due to the acorns that he has been eating. Be advised that acorns can be toxic and can cause kidney problems, so they should be kept away from him or he should be allowed to access areas where acorns are not a concern.To firm the stool, you can use a high fiber, bland diet. To make this, you’ll combine white or brown rice, boneless, skinless chicken breast and sufficient water for cooking in a stock pot. Boil on medium until it turns to mush and the breast is easily flaked. Feed in amounts similar to what he would be eating of his regular diet. If your companion requires a more palatable food, try adding in pureed baby food in chicken, turkey and similar flavors. Avoid those that contain onion or garlic in the ingredient panel.If the diarrhea persists, turns bloody, you notice vomiting, intestinal cramping, etc. he must be examined by a veterinarian.
