gracegirl Posted August 21, 2008 Share Posted August 21, 2008 (edited) Hi Greytalkers, This is the first time in 2.5 years of owning greys that I've had to deal with bloody D. Bummer for Fenway! He and Grace were boarded in a "crate free" boarding facility over the weekend (it was not planned, it was last a last minute decision to have them stay there). Last time I went out of town Fenway got the runs while staying with a friend, but was fine with some rice added to his diet for a few days in addition to kibble So here's the current story. I'm in the process of switching foods. From Canidae Lamb to [crud I can't remember] timberwolf Beef (?) and we are at about 50/50 after 10 days. Fenway got home from the boarding facility with looser than normal stool on Sunday. Monday night after work/after dinner (including a turkey neck) he had watery poo. So no breakfast on Monday and then chicken and rice with a bit of yogurt for dinner last night and breakfast today. Still liquid this morning after breakfast. Left a note for the dog walker today and she said "he was grumpy today and is not feeling well. He pooed and it was D again." So tonight after work I took him out, he was straining, and now it's liquid with bright red blood. We are going to the vet tomorrow morning. But, should I feed him chicken and rice tonight? He's still going out on his regular schedule and is not having accidents or needing to go more frequently. I don't have any pepto or immodium here (I can go get some if need be) and I'm not sure what else to do. Any ideas as to what the problem could be? He's thrown up some bile too, last night before dinner. But just that once, and he's kept all other meals down. I also noticed that tonight's poo started out slightly formed...before it turned liquid and bloody. What does the bright red blood mean vs. darker red blood? Help please, Fenny doesn't feel well! ETA: He's still drinking, still whining for dinner, and still playing (just not with the same exuberance as usual)...
