I am with a canine rescue and coccidia is very common. We used the SMZ and Albon and it is like giving them water...I switched to Marquis and it has been great. Just wanted to get your opinion on how to mix. I saw you can have it compounded. Can you tell me the formula for compounding? The marquis has saved many puppy lives for us.

I am a breeder of Airedales. The puppies are now 13 weeks

Good morning. I am a breeder of Airedales. The puppies are now 13 weeks old all puppies are healthy but last 3 of 2 I have sold. For the past three weeks they have had diarrhea. I have had stool samples checked...nothing growing. They have horrible diarrhea. Gaining weight, playing, eating. The new owners are angry. Have been treated with panacur, flagyl, probiotics.... Giardia, worms, coccidiosis,...nothing is growing, but this continues. My vet wants to finish this course of panacur and flagyl...then go on to clindamycin for 10 days. I do not have a ton of money..what do you think is going on

Our Dane puppy has been losing weight and has a bloated

Our Dane puppy has been losing weight and has a bloated looking tummy, he is quite a bit smaller than his siblings, we have been giving him Gatorade and electrolytes anally for the past two days as we thought maybe he had an obstruction in his rectum from worms (we de-wormed him and his siblings 5 days ago, just now we were giving him more Gatorade anally and he looked like he was squatting to poop but a big red mass kind of shape of a round hot dog starting coming out and is halfway out of his body, he looked like he was trying to pass it but it's either attached to the inside or its too big, what could this dark red mass be?

We have two puppies of a litter of four which are still

We have two puppies of a litter of four which are still living, but one more is becoming lethargic and clumsy when she tries to walk. The first two lived for about five weeks and died several days within each other. The two remaining are six weeks old now. The same happened with two other litters by different mothers but all the same dad. Makes me think that this is a genetic defect. A little karo syrup seems to help in the short run, but does not stop the outcome. It is now the weekend and I am not sure if there is anything I can do to save this puppy. I have Albon on hand but not sure if it would do any good and not sure I can give it to the puppy since she is only six weeks old. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you, Gary

My 1 in a half year old pointer terrier mix has been

My 1 in a half year old pointer terrier mix has been experiencing intermittent diarrhea for the past few weeks. It started about 2 weeks ago and she was taken to the vet all fecal exams came back negative and she was put on metronidazole 250mg for 8 days. This seemed to clear the problem up for a few days but then she began having loose stools again which turned into diarrhea again. She was taken to the vet again and blood work was completed along with all fecal once more and everything came back normal. They switched her food to Royal Canine High energy gastro and started the metronidazole 250mg again for 14 days. Her stool is still loose and a darkish yellow but much more formed. I called once more because I was thinking I may have saw what looked like grains of rice in her stool so they gave her cestex 100mg last night. Her stool this morning was a little firmer but still darkish yellow. What could be going on?
