My 7 year old male shih tzu has had diarrhea for the past…

Customer Question
My 7 year old...

My 7 year old male shih tzu has had diarrhea for the past two days. Over 24 hours ago I started him on a chicken breast, rice, and chicken stock diet. He still has diarrhea. What should I do?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the Shih Tzu?

See previous

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the Shih Tzu seem to hurt?

He does not seem to be in any pain

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious pain. What is the Shih Tzu's name?

O

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

He has pancreatitis
