Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 4 months ago.

It sounds like your companion is having diarrhea.

When was his last vet visit?
Have they performed a fecal exam yet? If so, when was the last one?
Am I understanding correctly that this has been an issue for 6 months?

Did they perform a fecal examination at that time? Any bloodwork?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I think that one no
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 4 months ago.

It would be worthwhile since he's not responding to the pumpkin to schedule some diagnostics with your vet. At very least, he could benefit from a fecal examination and parasite screen. Your vet may also recommend a culture and sensitivity and bloodwork. A course of antibiotics like metronidazole and a broad spectrum dewormer like drontal would be worthwhile, as well.

Fecal examine do I need bring in his poop?
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 4 months ago.

They will likely obtain a fresh sample during the visit. Fresh is best.

Okay
