Customer Question
I think he is...

I think he is having colitis and I need if there is a safe pain med like Tylenol that I can give until I take him to vet in morning?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?

12

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Max

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Max?

No, this is his only problem. But I have started him in a new diet that Dinovite recommended about 8 days ago which consists of found beef, boiled eggs with shell puréed, white rice, Dinovite & Lucky chops (an oil or fat).

Hello and thank you for using this site to help you . Changing the diet can cause diarrhea.

Why did you change the diet?

How long has this been going on?

Has the dog been tested for parasites or protazoa?

Is there anything new in the dog's life that would cause stress?

My dog is having colitis related problems. He had a colitis
He had a colitis flare up on 19 Feb. - Initial symptoms were passing a lot of wind, discomfort. His stool started off okay, but by the third one it was mucusy. I went to the vet and she gave him a steroid injection. He responded within a couple of days and went back to normal. 7 days later, the symptoms returned. He was gassy again and his stool comtained a lot of mucus plus a small dot of red blood. The vet prescribed prednicare tablets - 2 a day for 5 days, and then 1 a day for 10 days. He responded very well, until day 8 (today) - he won't eat today - his stomach is making gurgling noises, and he is eating grass. He hasn't vomited so far, and his stools are normal. What do you think is happening, and what can I do to help him - should I withhold food for today? … read more
