  1. Hi all, I’ve had my almost 8 year girl for 3 years now, and she had been doing exceptionally well for the last 2 years after the initial one year battle with chronic persistent hookworm, chicken allergy/intolerance, and gastroenteritis. For the last two years, we had her eating beef Tylee’s with weekly yak stick treats, special meals of fully cooked ground beef one weekend a month, and religiously fed her Interceptor Plus for heart worm and hookworm prevention each month. She was happy and healthy until this past weekend. The only things I can think of that happened was: O
  2. Our 4yo guy came down with some kind of bug over the weekend, which had (what seems to us) an odd presentation. I'm hoping someone here might have an idea of what it might be. Short story is that it started Saturday as a couple of peeing accidents inside (not explained by long interval between outside visits or anything like that), drinking tons of water, having to go outside many times per night/day (considerably more than normal), and transitioning Sunday to cow-pie poops and borderline diarrhea (fortunately all pooping occurred outside). He's definitely not himself, he hasn't been s
  3. Hello friends! My five year old greyhound developed soft stools yesterday, and I'd love some help and guidance! He is still acting normal- his appetite and energy are unchanged, and he is still his bright, cheery self. We're 99.9% certain he hasn't eaten anything unusual (he's always leashed on walks with us, and is well-supervised at home) and we haven't changed his diet. However, his last three bowel movements have been unusual. I'm still able to pick it up, but the consistency is quite soft (like soft serve or a "cow patty"), and there seems to be a bit of grey mucous on the exterior.
  4. Weve had our boy for about four months. Earlier this week we gave him his quarterly dose of Sentinel. It was his second dose with us and he was receiving it at the adoption group. First time we didnt notice any side effects and had not experienced any with our previous pooch. This time our boy didnt eat for about 24 hrs and has had diarrhea for going on two days. He slept most of the weekend as well. Was very worried but hes improved today quite a bit. Was curious if others have experienced this and suggestions about alternatives to sentinel. As always thanks in advance.
  5. Hello, I have had my greyhound for a year now. For the first 6-7 months he was having diarrhea and stomach upset almost every month and constant excessive gas. I changed his food to a prescription purina one - gastroenteric formula and I also add a probiotic. He's been on that food for about a month. It's helped with the excessive gas and his stools are much firmer. HOWEVER, he is still having a gurgling stomach every few weeks and HAS to go outside and eat grass. Every time we stay the night at my boyfriend's house (where we are frequently, so he should be used to it by now) he will wake
  6. Before we talk about canine vaccination schedules, first let's talk about poop! You'll have to excuse my french as I'm a retired RN and BM's are very near (but not so dear) to me! Let's just say that although some of this post may be speculation, poop analysis is my specialty! I fostered 3 retired racers (from Florida) over the last 4 months and adopted #4... GM's Felix! (I failed at fostering as they say!) Interesting fact: All of the 4 dogs had (and have) EXACTLY the same bowel patterns (progressively worse diarrhea as the day progresses.) No matter what I fed (feed)
  7. My recently adopted 3 year old boy is currently being treated for hooks, so his stools have been irregular but getting a lot better, but seems to get worse with high temps. We live where the weather is usually very cool and mild throughout the year, but this is the second heat wave we've had while having him and he's had loose stools both times. Is this common? Tips?
  8. I have discovered a miracle supplement for the battle of the soft stool! It's a digestive supplement by Honest Kitchen and it turned my dog's pudding poop into firm pick uppable by the third dose. He had to have surgery last month for foreign body obstruction (ate a cat toy, it was a terrible time) and since then I've had to hose down the yard constantly so I know you all will understand my elation and hope I can help others by sharing this. Wish I'd known about it when we first got him and took ages to sort out. They also make a powdered goat milk probiotic/digestive enzymes which I'm also gi
  9. My 11yr old girly was seen 11/30 for a variety of issues, mainly my questioning pancreatitis from her previous bloodwork results when seen by the oncologist and a torn dew claw. Her vet suspects pancreatitis related GI problems. He prescribed a bland diet of boiled chicken and rice including metronidazole. She's been eating this diet for two weeks and finished the meds but still has loose bowels, this can be a side effect, but I had hoped this would resolve sooner. I suppose it takes several days. ??? Anyone experience this? I found she needs to eat at least 3-4 breast halves per day. No
  10. Hello, We have hooks and diarrhea and have gone through multiple treatments of Panacur and one treatment of Drontal Plus. Reading through some posts, there seems to be some vets that have put them on long term treatment of Panacur, etc. Could anyone tell me what your protocol was that finally rid your grey of these vile parasites? Thanks in advance!
  11. Hi all, New grey owner here! Have posted once about bonding but having some health issues we need advice on please. We have had our 3 y/o boy about 11 weeks now. He came to us at a weight of 82 lbs and his racing weight was 80 lbs. He had mostly soft stool from the beginning with some with slight form. We put him on eukanba when we first got him, which was a switch from Purina dog chow adult from the rescue group. He was put on doxy for about a month because his white cell count was high and the vet thought maybe he had tick borne disease. He also was diagnosed with hooks, which

  13. Hey All, I've noticed that my girls stomach has been swollen. At first I thought she was just getting fat, I adopted her about 3 months ago. But after giving it a good feel she appears to be bloated and swollen. It's been about three days now. Otherwise she is acting normal, and does not seem to be in any pain, not even when I gently squeeze her belly. I called her vet and they said not to worry, but of course, I am worried and would love everyone's opinion here. A week ago I got her anal glands expressed, she was licking back there and that seems to be good now, maybe this has som
  14. Hello - I apologize for the lengthy post and a possible repeat topic but I've been reading similar threads and my head is all over the place because there's so many different opinions and variations My 7 year old guy (Truman) has been having varying forms of D for the past month. I've had him 4 years and he's almost never had a solid stool but it's typically still formed. But this month it's been no more solid than pudding on his better days and straight brown water the rest. His appetite has been normal (hes been on wellness chicken and oatmeal since I got him) he's drinking water his tem
  15. Hello, Our Grey is about 4 years old, and has tested negative for parasites. She poops and at first it's hard and "normal" and then the last bit is just super runny and she strains to get the rest out. I have Psyllium Husk powder I was considering giving her (not sure how to give it to her yet, though) but was curious if there are other OTC solutions? Do you give your grey a daily probioitic or anything to help firm things up? Sometimes she lays around like her belly might hurt so I need to find something cause it's not getting better. Thanks!
  16. Hi everyone, I'm just back from an emergency visit to the vet with my girl Winnie, who had a pretty bad bout of explosive, bloody diarrhea and vomiting this morning. She also refused to eat her breakfast, wouldn't even touch boiled chicken breast and, worst of all considering how hot it's been in the last few days, didn't want to drink at all. Winnie had a similar, but much less severe GI episode last month and it seems like they are both connected to the Sentinel heartworm medication I switched her to this spring. Both times Winnie started acting weird two days after I gave her her Sent
  17. OK, so the quick version...we adopted Newt and his kennel sister Vesta back last August. Both had great tummies. We were feeding Purina ProPlan Sensitive Skin and Stomach. The kennel we got them from feeds whatever they get donated. Things were good for several months then in about January Newt started having soft poops. We didn't rush to the vet but were there within a few days. Tested positive for Giardia. They said he had quite a load. We were given metronidazole and Endurosyn. That didn't seem to work that well. Needless to say we've been through 7 rounds of antibiotics over the last 6 mon
  18. Winnie gets Heartguard and Frontline Plus on the 15th of each month. We usually have at least loose stool the day after to 2 days after. Tonight I woke up to Winnie needing to go out at 2am with diarrhea. This isn't the first time - 2 months ago similar issue. Gave the meds to her on the 15th, early morning diarrhea on the 17th. I'm planning on holding off food in the morning or giving her chicken and rice (it's in the rice cooker as we speak). The Heartguard is the only "out of the ordinary" thing she gets and I don't feed her beef (flavor of chew). Are there other options for me that mi
  19. We have a sick pup on our hands We've been trying to diversify Sam's diet a little by adding some large, raw bones. We started with turkey necks, he loved them and took them well, no GI issues. Yesterday afternoon, we gave him a relatively large beef joint. He enjoyed chewing slowly on it, no gulping or choking, and he left the majority of the bone itself uneaten. The first stool he passed afterwards was normal, and we gave him 1/3 his usual kibble dinner that evening. This morning, at about 1am, he threw up, and has been doing so about once an hour (it's 7:30 where I am now). He
  20. Hey Everyone - I'll admit that after everything we went through with Maya (rare intestinal cancer) I was hoping to have a couple of hounds with no intestinal issues. It appears this is not to be. If you wouldn't mind I will recap a synopsis of what's been going on and would love some opinions, experiences, and thoughts about what could be plaguing Ashe. It's a long read but I could really use some advice. Thanks everyone! - leigh Synopsis: Pup: Ashe 4yr (almost) male Problem 1: A recurring problem with seasonal allergies (undiagnosed - assumed allergies). He will just break

  22. My boy, 4.5 yo Desmond, adopted June 2013, had a bout of very urgent diarrhea early this past week (Tuesday). Water consistency poops with immediate urgency to go. (I suspect he may have gotten into something in the snow - he currently likes to put his whole head into a snowbank on walks and while I usually assume he's just sniffing who knows what he might have grabbed up to swallow - a good search of the house found nothing he could have gotten into inside.) I removed his food for 24 hours and then started him on the bland diet outlined in the "Greyhounds for Dummies" book - though after
  23. I just don't get it. Nico has been eating the same food for months!! The kibble is Nutro Ultra and we mix in a bit of W/D canned to make a nice mush. Plop on canned pumpkin as a dollop on top. That seemed to be the ticket. After our Frappy passed 2 months ago, he had diarrhea from all the upheaval. But it went back to normal pretty quickly. Now, within the last week, he is starting to get pudding poo again! What gives?? Do you think I should take him to the vet? I've added back in a probiotic. I was thinking he needs Tylan again--he responds really well to that. I saw a previous thread ab
  24. I thought I would share a product that I recently discovered. My boy Badger has always had loose stool no matter what food we feed him. He's also had awful flaky skin regardless of any type of oil we've added to his food. Our vet was stumped and just told us to keep giving him the salmon oil and eventually it would kick in. He had super shiny black fur, but it was still flaky. We've had him for over a year and it's always been like this. So, I started him and our others on Victor brand dog food, after Acana was getting too expensive with 5 dogs. I also added a tsp. of coconut oil and hi
  25. OMG. The saga never ends. Most of you know about Frappuccino who was diagnosed with meningitis. Welll she went through a period of anorexia where she didn't eat anything. The poor thing looked cachetic: ribs sticking out, all fur and bones. In an attempt to boost her appetite, we started doing boiled chicken and rice or potatoes. Nico, our other greyhound ( 11 years old) started turning up his nose at his kibble because he "wanted what she's having". So I started butting maybe a 1/4 cup of the chicken/rice I not his kibble,(plus a spoonful of wet, mixed with water) just to appease him. Well, w
