I just adopted a...

I just adopted a 2 yr old mix breed. He leaks liquid feces and yesterday he was chewing on a toy and poop just slid out and he didnt notice.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name?

Tink

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

He has been eating dog chow, I am switching him over to proplan. He is on doxycycline 2 times a day, he was treated for heartworm infection about 3 weeks ago. Hes very itchy, drinks a lot and then pees a lot. Other than that hes ok.

Great.

I'm sorry to hear that Tink isn't feel well, how long many days have you had him now?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

It sounds like he has had a lot of changes recently, between being treated for Heartworm, moving to a new home, and all the changes that come with it.

The stress from these things as well as the change in diet are both very likely reasons that can cause a dog to have loose stool and diarrhea.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

A bland diet (boiled chicken and rice, or a GI prescription food) can be very helpful. Also, you can trying adding a tbsp of pureed pumpkin (canned pumpkin can be found at any grocery store - just don't get pie filling). These can help settle and upset stomach and help firm up stool. If it is not improving or getting worse then I recommend going into your local vet as they might be able to get you a prescription diet and/or some antibiotics that can help as well.

Do you have any questions about any of that?

He doesn't have diarrhea or loos stools. They are formed, soft. He leaks. I just did his anal glands and they were empty. I just checked. Thanks going to see my vet Mon or tue.

It is possible the leaking can be the start of having some loose stool and

GI upset. But I do think going to the vet on Monday isn't a bad idea. Until then doing a bland diet can potentially help. Do you have any other questions for me?
