My puppy with diarrhea?

My puppy with diarrhea? Topic: My puppy with diarrhea?
January 22, 2020 / By Kendal
Question: My four month pup has "pudding"-like diarrhea. I know, it's really gross, sorry! But I have no idea why. He was dewormed, and we got him worm checked twice anyway, and he was all clear. The vet said to give him plain yogurt, which I've done and it helps a little but not enough to make a difference. He acts just fine, not sickly at all. Very playful, has an appetite, drinks water. So the only conclusion I can come to is that his diarrhea is caused by his food. I feed him Taste of the Wild, and I really love this food. It has done wonders for my other dog and it's very affordable for a high quality food. But I feed him the High Prairie flavor, if I switched to the Salmon flavor, would it help his diarrhea? Or is it just the brand and not flavor? Specific ingredients make the food have a flavor, so I think it might help but I'm not sure. Also, if I just switched flavors and not brand, would I need to do the gradual 2 week change? Please help if you can!

Is it flavour or ingredients.........if its flavour then its an additive and that won't help him at all............sounds like he needs his immune system building, giving him milk thistle daily will do this, so his immune system is fully functioning and he can fight whatever is causing the problem naturally.

Issy Originally Answered: My puppy is suddenly having diarrhea?
The vast majority of dog owners have experienced an animal’s unusual bowel movements, namely diarrhea. Although some causes of diarrhea are easily fixed, some cases require immediate medical attention. Although diarrhea is more common in puppies than adults, irregular bowel movements in adult dogs need to be addressed as soon as they arise. When combined with other symptoms, diarrhea can be a sign of very serious problems, especially if it is ongoing. Adult dogs, however, can experience occasional diarrhea. Common causes for occasional diarrhea in adult dogs include: * Sudden changes in diet or food (can cause diarrhea for days) * The dog chewed and ingested outside material such as grass and twigs * Rawhides * Rich treats * Change of owners * New people or places that cause stress * Irritable bowel syndrome (causes chronic diarrhea) If the dog is always outside, he or she may have access to dropping of other animals. Besides keeping the dog fully vaccinated annually for disease, you should also deworm the dog every year as well. Annual dewormers kill intestinal parasites such as hookworms, roundworms, whipworms, and tapeworms. All of these parasites can cause diarrhea if your dog has a severe infestation. Puppies usually have worms and get regular doses of dewormer when they are young. Puppies that have a lot of worms in their intestines usually have a very swollen abdomen and bouts of diarrhea. Beware of blood in the feces. Although blood can be a result of a irritated intestine and resolve on its own, bloody feces should always be addressed by a veterinarian immediately. Blood in diarrhea can be a sign of injury to the intestine, disease, parvovirus, or a high infestation of worms. Keep your dog vaccinated annually with a DHPPV vaccine to keep him or her safe from parvovirus – a deadly virus that causes bloody diarrhea. You can also protect your dog by monitoring his or her rawhide intake and gradually switching to new foods over a long period of time (7-10 days). Also, if your dog is prone to chewing, keep any small objects out of reach. Even ingesting spare change can result in severe diarrhea and an expensive surgical bill. Always consult a veterinarian if you have questions or concerns regarding your dog’s health. This information is not meant to be a substitute for veterinary care. Always follow the instructions provided by your veterinarian. Canine Coronavirus (CCV) is the second leading viral cause of diarrhea in puppies with canine Parvovirus being the leader. Unlike Parvovirus, Coronavirus infections are not generally associated with high death rates. Canine Coronavirus is not new to the canine population; it has been known to exist for decades. Most domestic dogs, especially adults, have measurable Coronavirus antibody titers indicating that they were exposed to canine Coronavirus at some time in their life. Its importance as an infectious disease and killer of dogs has probably been overestimated by vaccine manufacturers and some veterinary authorities. Canine Coronavirus is a single stranded RNA type of virus with a fatty protective coating. Because the virus is covered in a fatty membrane, it is relatively easily inactivated with detergent and solvent-type disinfectants. It is spread by virus shedding in the feces of infected dogs. What are the symptoms? The primary symptom associated with canine Coronavirus is diarrhea. As with most infectious diseases, young puppies are more affected than adults. Unlike Parvovirus, vomiting is not common. The diarrhea tends to be less profuse than that associated with Parvovirus infections. Although canine Coronavirus is generally thought of as a milder cause of diarrhea than Parvovirus, there is absolutely no way to differentiate the two without laboratory testing. Both Parvovirus and Coronavirus cause the same appearing diarrhea with an identical odor. The diarrhea associated with Coronavirus usually lasts several days with low mortality. To complicate the diagnosis, many puppies with a severe intestinal upset (enteritis) are affected by both Coronavirus and Parvovirus simultaneously. Mortality rates in puppies simultaneously infected may approach 90 percent. What are the risks? As previously stated, canine Coronavirus has been widespread among the canine population for many years. Many dogs, especially adults, are either naturally immune and not susceptible, or develop a very mild, oftentimes unnoticeable, case of the disease. Puppies less than twelve weeks of age are at the greatest risk and some especially weaker ones will die if exposed and infected. Most puppies, however, will recover after several days of mild to severe diarrhea. What is the management? As with canine Parvovirus, there is no specific treatment for canine Coronavirus. It is very important to keep the patient, especially puppies, from developing dehydration. Water must be force fe

Hi! There's no miracle food out there that every dog can tolerate, and even the high-end ones can cause trouble to specific dogs. However, I wouldn't switch flavors until you make sure there's not something wrong with the puppy besides a food reaction. For the next day or so, try feeding him cooked rice with some boiled white meat chicken mixed in. This is the most popular "tummy friendly" food people use. Just make sure it's plain - no salt, pepper, etc. And use a ratio of about 3:1 of rice to chicken. Give it to him tonight and tomorrow and see what happens with his poop starting tomorrow afternoon. Also, keep on with the plain yogurt - just mix it in. If there's no change, then your vet missed something, because it's not the food. It's probably not serious or you'd be noticing other signs, but it needs to be checked out. If it does change and his poops look normal, keep him on it a day or so more and then try gradually introducing the salmon flavored. If he runs into trouble again, it's the brand, not the flavor (which I personally am guessing is the problem).

When dogs get diarrhea,the best thing you can do is to give them some cooked white rice.I've had dogs all of my life and have done this every time,make sure the puppy is drinking and has lots of fresh water so he doesn't get dehydrated.Try it,it really works.

Could be the food is too high in protein. I would also get a second opinion from another vet.

Apple juice is a natural laxative so three cups would give him diarrhea. And a lot of fiber at one time (i.e. the cherrios) can cause major gas. The only thing you can really do is wait for it to get out of his system. He should be fine tomorrow--until then just let him do whatever he feels comfortable doing whether it's resting or playing. Oh and from now on, I'd only stock the house with Pear or White grape juice (both are a lot easier on little stomachs) or buy the Mott's for Tot's juice that is already diluted with water.
