I am pretty anxious to get an answer to my previous question. I have a 10 almost 11 month old black lab mix puppy who is exhibiting stomach issues- diarrhea to be exact with white pellets (could be the rice I am feeding him, bland diet); in addition, he is evacuating less and less, drinking less water and shaking. He is on lomitil and amoxicillin. Is there anything more I should do? And is it normal that he is sleeping more? I know the antibiotic is supposed to make him sleepy.
