Pet Questions? Ask a Vet and Get Answers ASAP
I know the care you take of your baby and it is primo. This may be an issue with parasites or digestion, because of the times it occurs. You may need to bring in a stronger proboitic to help with this problem to help restore the gut Flora. the acidophilus may not be enough to help get things back on track. I am including a site about Probiotics and the effects they have on the gut flora and digestion. Please let me know if I can be of further help. Joan
The Diatomaceutous Earth is fine and very safe for the pets. I am concerned about the hay you are using. The hay quality may be causing the loose droppings. Have you considered tring to order some of the oxbox critical care and hays online. This is a place that sells the hay online. It may make a difference if there is something wrong with the hay. http://www.americanpetdiner.com/ I am also feeling the Probiotics will help with the problems as well. As far as the parasites, I am concerned that this could be something picked up from the hay, (not the ants) but coccidia, giardia, hook worms, or round worms. I just have (not to mean a pun) a gut feeling a change in the hay may be the answer to what is going on. If the hay you are getting has ants it can be exposed to other problems as well. Please let me know your thoughts. I will also consult with another expert for her input. Joan
I do not think we are going to loose him becaue of what is happening. I did give you a link for some probiotics. http://www.medirabbit.com/EN/GI_diseases/Probiotics/probiotics.htm
Our biggest problem is getting the right products to you, since Singapore is out major problem. I am wondering if we can swiitch to a more pelleted diet of Oxbow products.
If we disect what is happening the problem is happening in the morning which means this is something that is being eaten at night so by morning we have the loose stools. Is there any difference what he is getting at night from what you are feeding in the morning.
Lets break down the diet taht he is eating in the morning , Vs what he is eating at night and we can see where there is a difference. Joan
Lets try using the same diet in the eveing as the morning. Use the exact same amounts of everything. This way we can see if it is something that is being fed at night is causing the loose stools in the morning. The fecals at night are formed because of the morning diet. THis way we can use a process of elimination to see what may be causing the problems. It is worth a try to do it this way. Joan
