I'm sorry to hear Grizzlie is having this issue with diarrhea and vomiting. The first thing we would want to rule out is an intestinal parasite. This can be done by submitting a fresh stool sample to his veterinarian. It would be a good idea for them to check him out and make sure there are no other abnormalities on his physical examination. They will be able to send home an antibiotic for the diarrhea, and a dewormer, if needed. In the meantime, you can give a bland diet of plain boiled white rice and white chicken meat, mixed with a little plain nonfat yogurt. Has this helped?
