Took our two, 10 week old, Chihuahua puppies we've had a
Took our two, 10 week old, Chihuahua puppies we've had a week to a new vet. No previous vaccines had been given. They had very soft stools when we got them. He put them on Alban. They are 1.1 and 1.3 lbs. I took a stool sample to be "sent off." He did not take their temps. He gave them a shot of dewormer and the first puppy shots there and said to give them each 1ml that evening and then cut it back to .5ml for the next four days. Their loose stools and turned into pure diarrhea and today (third day) it is yellow watery. I called the office and was told maybe it was a change in diet. The doc told them to tell me the shots or medicine does not cause diarrhea............but, I feel it has.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is the bleeding a lot?Customer: no bloodJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the?Customer: the 1.1 lb strains like he is constipated, but the doctor knows that.
I am fostering a litter of 4 kittens. They are about 8 weeks
Hello - I am fostering a litter of 4 kittens. They are about 8 weeks old and only about weigh about a pound. They were having severe diarrhea and yesterday they were diagnosed with coccidia and put on albon. My question is, what can I do to help with their sore bottoms? One in particular seems to have quite a bit of pain. I've been putting on Vaseline and neosporin spray. She does lick it off. Is there something else I can be doing to ease their discomfort? Also - any idea how long it takes to start seeing some results from the albon? Thank you!
Our standard poodle cross which we have had for nearly three

His name is***** is five months oldJA: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did Alfie eat anything unusual?Customer: Not that we can see. We have withheld food for 24hrs and fed rice and chicken for two weeks. We have been trying a grain free dry food. He did improve a little but is back to bloody stools. Not as bad thoughJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Alfie?Customer: He is 50% standard poodle,25% dogue de bodoux and 25% Great Dane x mix breed. His original owners separated and could no longer afford him. I suspect he has had a gut issue for awhile and they couldn't afford the vet.
I have a 5 month old puppy that had loose and urgent bowel
Hi. I have a 5 month old puppy that had loose and urgent bowel movements x24 hours. He had small (1-1.5 inches in diameter) frequent (every 2-3 hours) bowel movements over night. I took him to my vet the next day and he prescribed him flagyl 125 mg twice daily for 5 days and diagnosed him with colitis. His stool consistency did not change and actually got worse (went from semi formed to liquid pudding). I called my vet and he increased the flagyl dose to 125 mg three times daily for a total of 10 days, added a probiotic daily for 10 days, and switched him to canned dog food. His stools became liquid with no shape at all, changed in color from light brown to dark purple (?maybe due to the food), vomitted every night since the dose increased, and now is incontinent of urine x2days (would lay down and pee). What should I do? Help!
