Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Hello. My name is***** and I am an avian veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand that Louie has had watery feces since after a long-distance move. Alkaline water and liquid probiotics have not been helpful so far. Is that a correct summary?
It is also possible that what likely contributed to the watery feces is the sudden stress of the move. I recommend in order to help with this situation is to add apple cider vinegar. "Bragg" is a good brand. I like the idea you had of giving probiotics and yogurt with probiotics is often used for intestinal health. Finally, a natural way to help support the body from stress-induced intestinal inflammation is to change the environment. Increase the ambient temperature to 85-90 degrees Fahrenheit and the humidity to about 85%. That will help to restore the body's immune function. A complete recovery is expected within 3-5 days. If this continues longer than that then a fecal exam should be performed to rule out parasites or stomach yeast.
I hope that answers your question. I am happy to answer more questions if you have any. If you are satisfied, I would appreciate a positive review. You may leave up to 5 stars when ready. Thank you.
Yes, you can give the carrots, corn, and peas, which should not exacerbate the current issue. The ratio of apple cider vinegar to water is 4:100. Therefore, 4 mL of vinegar to 100 mL of water. That is approximately 1 tablespoon per 1/3 cup of water.
