Customer Question
We rescued an (almost...

We rescued an (almost 2 year old) Morkie approx. 6 weeks ago. She has had diarrhea for almost as long as we have her. When we got her we were advised by our Vet to give her Boiled Chicken. didn't help. Pet store advised against that and to give her kibble (tried Blue Mountain Salmon and Blue Mountain Beef) Not working either. any guidance would be appreciated.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the Chicken?

Pet store (representative for BLUE) advised that sometimes Dogs are allergic to Chicken (She does scratch a lot) and also may not be good for her teeth. additionally for weeks with the chicken she had the diarrhea as well.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the Chicken seem to hurt?

Diarrhea!

Veterinarian's Assistant: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?

Well yeah, diarrhea. Mustard brown in color, soft to watery not normal dog stool.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Chicken's name?

WHAT?

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

So, I'm guessing this is a computer and not a real live person, thank you anyway.

Hi, my name is***** and I'm a real person and a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. Sorry about Pearle, she's our bot that collects initial information to pass on to doctors, but she gets confused sometimes. Sorry about that. I would be happy to help. Has your dog ever had a stool test done at the vet's?
