Our vets office is closed on Wednesdays. Should we be concerned?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the puppy eat anything unusual?Customer: He has not been eating very well and so we gave him some cooked chicken which is new for him other than dog foodJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the puppy?Customer: His energy level seems to still be ok - he plays but seems somewhat tired
My 13 week puppy was recently having diarrhea. The vet gave
Hello, my 13 week puppy was recently having diarrhea. The vet gave us Metronidazole (2x/day every 12 hrs), we gave him one dose friday noon, another Saturday noon (forgot the morning dose), then once dose around 730 am. He had lack of appetite this morning, was able to eat lunch, but then vomited twice toward the evening. He just had diarrhea about 30 minutes ago. What should we do?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the puppy eat anything unusual?Customer: I gave him a fingernail size piece of banana to see if he'd like it, otherwise just the usual food and treatsJA: What is the puppy's name?Customer: KonaJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Kona?Customer: He was only dewormed twice, which I'm not sure what is required. His diarrhea contained a worm-shaped object, but it seemed harder than a worm. about 1 inch long.

My dog may have worms and had her first dose of frontal
My dog may have worms and had her first dose of frontal plus. Took it with dinner and vomited about 4.5 hours later. She has emptied her stomach and wants water which makes her throw up more. Should I let her have the water! Are there any serious side effects I should worry about? Also will the dose be effective even though she threw it up? Thanks
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
My Havanaise had diarrhea for about three days and I took
My Havanaise had diarrhea for about three days and I took him into the vet. I did not have a stool sample with me but they did go ahead and put him on five days of antibiotics. Within a day and a half of being off of the antibiotic the diarrhea started again. I waited a couple more days and then I had a sample which I took to the vet but it tested normal. The vet then decided to go ahead and put him on 10 days of antibiotics to see if that would help. He just finished a day and a half ago and again the diarrhea is starting again.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?Customer: LouieJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Louie?Customer: No
We have been struggling with a few bouts of diarrhea with
We have been struggling with a few bouts of diarrhea with both our dogs on and off recently. One had it about 3 weeks ago and got over it without treatment. The next had it about 2 weeks ago and had to go to the vet. She was given Metronidazole 250mg tablet giving half a tab every 12 hours for 8days. Her stools seemed to harden for the last few days but than she had two looser stools somewhat like ice cream consistency and greenish. Finally it seemed to get better but both were displaying sneezing more often and backwards kind of coughing and hacking. Once the medicine was over she was better for a day or two and than the diarrhea started up again along with our other dog. We still giving them chicken and rice and no new food had been added. We took them back to the vet on Wednesday and they did all blood work and full fecal exams and everything came back normal. They were both prescribed the metronidazole for 14 days and put of royal canine food. Stools are back to normal in our male dog but still a little mushy and yellow in our female dog! They are still sneezing here and there and have some eye boogers as well. I thought I maybe saw some sesame seed like white grains in I believe both of their stools. I called the vet and they gave our male dog Drontal Plus 68mg 1.5 tablets and our Female dog Cestex 100mg 1 tablet 1 time. Is there a reason these are different. Could this be something else and should I hold off on giving those dewormers and just stick with the metronidazole?
