Customer Question

I have a 12 yr. old Pom male that has loose bowels for the last two weeks. I've given him Immodium 1/2 tablet every 12 hrs. and ProPectalin. Nothing seems to work. He acts normal with everything else, eat drinking playing ect.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?
Customer: Sorry. 12yr. old male Pomerain
JA: Maybe I'm confused. I thought you had a problem with a pet. Is that correct?
Customer: Yes. My Pom has loose bowel movement for the last 2 weeks.
JA: Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about and ProPectalin?
Customer: I dont think so. The dosage is 3 units one at nite and one during the day

any new food or treats?

what is his current diet?

any access to free standing water, puddles, lakes, streams, anything like that?

any other meds or illness?
