Dog has IBS and diarrhea. Could it be a bowel obstruction?

I have a 3 year old Boston Terrier. He has IBS. We saw the vet last Monday. We increased his prednisone to bid 5 mg and Flagyl bid for ten days. He was doing great and for two days had two large formed bowel movements. Over the weekend, he started with diarrhea again. Pure liquid but only twice per day. He is eating and drinking. Vomited yesterday for the first time in 4 days so we started daily cerenia. No vomit today. He isn't as energetic but still wants to play and has gone on walks. When he has had IBS flare ups in the past, he wouldn't eat, would be febrile and he has had no temperature. Just shaking sometimes and still wants to eat and drink. He also was tested for Giardia and parasites which is negative. I am wondering if it is possible that he could have an obstruction even though he has no tenderness in his belly and has had a few normal bowel movements before going back to having diarrhea?

My nine week old maltipoo puppy was diagnosed on Wednesday

My nine week old maltipoo puppy was diagnosed on Wednesday with Giardia. She weighed 1 pound 14 ounces. She was prescribed 0.3 ml orally twice a day with MetronidZole Susp for 7 days. Can this cause a distended belly or am I just seeing a normal puppy belly? She is eating and drinking fine and I do not see the diahrea anymore.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?Customer: LuluJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Lulu?Customer: She is acting fine, she runs around. I only got her on Sunday afternoon. According to the paperwork that came with her it looks like the owner wormed her with one dose of Nemex on 9-12 and gave her a Parvo vaccine on 9-12. Because she had a Parvo vaccine the vet did not give her anymore vaccines at this time because he said the vaccines had Parvo vaccine in them and he did not want to make her sick. He wanted to hold off on any vaccines until Oct. 3rd. He did deworm her again.

My 9 yr old female border collie, Diamond, has had anal

My 9 yr old female border collie, Diamond, has had anal gland issues for over 4 years. She has had to have sutures placed in one to repair a rupture two years ago. The repair did not hold and she now has issues every few weeks. We've tried more dietary fiber (green beans), sits baths and monthly expression by our vet. We are now considering surgery to remove the right gland that was ruptured. There seems to be a collection of puss within this gland and the old sutures that complicate the condition. What other options do we have? What are the pros and cons of removal?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Diamond?Customer: She doesn't have any other known conditions, though she hasn't had a blood work up as yet. As with most borders, she is very athletic and an Alpha female. She doesn't tolerate other companions well. She spends most of her days with our two male dogs, another BC and a Sheepdog. She is a "ball dog". Hyper is one way to describe her.

I have two American Bulldog sister puppies at 7 months old.

I have two American Bulldog sister puppies at 7 months old. My problem is since I've had them, they have not had solid stool. The vet I take them too has had them on dewormer, and there rounds of antibiotics, and I've also changed their food to a gastroenteric dry food. I usually feed them twice a day at 2 cups each pet feeding, four cups total. I'm kind of at a loss here. After stool analysis and colon swabs, he seems to think they have no worms, and no antibacterial infection, but as of right now they are supposed to be taking antibiotics (Metronidazole and amoxicillin), plus a probiotic (Well & Good), and Coprophagia deterrent because one and maybe both have taken to eating their stool. My Veterinarian seems to be grasping at straws at this point and before I shell out even more money, I would like to get a second opinion. Their stool isnt mucous filled, but it's the consistency of peanut butter and it smells horribly.And help would be appreciated.BM
