Houndtime Posted August 22, 2013 Share Posted August 22, 2013 Fuzzy has had diarrhea since the weekend. I had him to the vet on Monday. They used some kind of hook to gather a stool sample and said no parasites. He was not fed on Monday night and we started him on Metronidazole, 750 mg, 2 times a day as well as Diphenoxylate/Atropine which makes him very loopy. He is eating Hills WD and he is getting worse instead of better. I added rice today and made him some oatmeal tonight for tomorrow. Tuesday, after the fast he did have one solid poop, now it is just water. You can't pick up; Len just hosed the yard. I think we are switching him to a Purina prescription food tomorrow, but, I am not sure what they told me over the phone this afternoon. I am very worried about him. He is a very thin dog as is. He is very tired, but, I think that is the meds.
