He has had diarrhea...

He has had diarrhea today and is showing a little blood but he is acting fine. He’s eating drinking and playing

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?

Male chihuahua

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the Chihuahua's name and age?

Mickey, 3 yrs

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

He just got neutered a couple weeks ago. I’m just confused because he’s not acting sick, the blood is just alarming

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

This sounds like acute enteritis and colitis

No chance of eating anything out of the ordinary?

I kept his toys and rope in his kennel when I was gone today. He also has a blanket he digs at.

Okay thanks

I am not too worried

Lets do this:

NO food till tomorrow night

Water is fine

Give Imodium at 0.1 mg/kg three times a day

Then feed cooked hamburger and rice with some probiotic (fortiflora) for a few days

Then introduce the regular diet after that

Okay?

Paul
