Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

Happy Thanksgiving!

Here is what to do:

Dont worry about the food- we dont want to feed till tomorrow.

Buy some Imodium and give 0.1 mg/kg by mouth three times a day.

If wont drink then try pedialyte or NO SALT chicken broth

Update me in two to three hours time

Okay?
Paul

Doc Paul,Just gave Cinn 2nd dose of immodium, she has had only one bout of diarrhea in last 3 hours which is a slight improvement, still listless. Do animals get the flu or what are we dealing with?
Customer reply replied 19 days ago
Dr Paul,
I have given Cinn another dose, she isn’t having the explosive diarrhea, but still has a lot of leakage, will this subside in time?

Yes.

This should continue to improve

Update me later tonight

Dr Paul,
Cinn is much better this morning and is showing signs of wanting to eat something so should I give her some boiled chicken or likewise bland food?

Great!

Boiled chicken or bland food are all good! :)

Keep me posted

Paul

Dr Paul:
Cinn is doing better, ate well. Her stool is still runny and loose and Shevardnadze still has the infrequent accident when passing gas. Should I give her the immodium or wait it out.
Thanks, Alisa

Yes.

Continue with Imodium

Update me tonight

Paul
