has Ace had a diet change?

Customer
Start

so a start of a diet change?

Customer
No

okay how long has this been going on? there is a few thing that can cause vomiting and diarrhea

one cause of vomiting and diarrhea is Gastroenteritis. here is a link that tells you more about it.

Customer
Awhile. More than a few days

another cause of diarrhea could be intestinal parasites. has ACE had a fecal recently?

Customer
No. We can't get him in to be seen anywhere we have tried

okay You can give Metamucil which is a fiber supplement that can help firm up the stool. I would feed boiled chicken and white rice for the next few days. It is a bland diet that can help when they are having GI upset. You can also syringe feed some Pedialyte to help with hydration. You can also give some canned food or chicken baby food to help with appetite if the chicken and rice isn't appetizing. If you don't see improvement of symptoms within 12 to 24 hours, or if symptoms worsen, please take your pet to the closest veterinary hospital.

Customer
Thanks. We'll try that and pray

if you have any more question feel free to ask. and if you can please go rate my service. I wish you and Ace the best of luck.
