Thread: Dog Gastro - Any Advice?

  1. #11

    thanks again for all the advice coming through.

    Jax had another bad bout of poo this morning...pretty runny and he strained quite a big but seems in much better spirits since the pain relief has worn off!

    we ended up buying a syringe from the chemist last night and force feeding him some re-hydration solution. he's managed to take a couple ice blocks this morning and even did two really good pees (so funny how happy things like this make me!!)

    so hopefully he's on the mend. my OH is home with him today and will make sure he has more liquid in him.

    funny thing - i tried the vegemite water last night and he refused to touch it, but when i just put vegemite on my finger he licked it right off! must be some bad associations with drinking at the moment?

    I would be definitely going back to the vet for more investigations as this seems to be continuing.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    azuresky

    I'd have another chat with the vet about this. Like Di Dee said, it should be cleared up by now if it was just a tummy bug or bad food. If it's a blockage - your dog could die.

    Agree with Di-Dee.

    Anything lasting over the 24 hour mark with young/littlies is an extra care factor as well.They go down oh so very quickly.

    If he is doing enough wees & will take fluid & is more active again that is a good start. If his poos & appitide are not 100% by days end I would be seeking another vet opinion though.
    How is he going today?????????????????

    we rang the vet late yesterday arvo. she said we should expect his poos to still be runny for the next couple days and to make sure he was kept hydrated. She did say if he wasn't eating by today that we should bring him in.

    His appetite came back this morning - ate a good amount of chicken and rice soaked in chicken broth and had half an ice block. he was also a lot more energetic...unfortunately both OH and me need to be back at work today but i will try and leave a bit early to check on him. He definitely seemed better though...tail was wagging and he was keen to play

    That sounds promising Azuresky ie not a blockage...

    You can also freeze chicken stock in iceblocks for hound to keep the electrolytes up (vegemite water would help too...).
