Guest Lygracilux Posted June 28, 2016 Share Posted June 28, 2016 (edited) Fusion has always had tummy issues since we got him (as most of you know) It was really bad the first year or so-big d (with blood), vomiting, lethargic, etc. We finally got him on a good food about 6 months ago that he likes, gives a good output, gives him energy, and keeps his skin clear and fur soft. We also added in Olewo carrots and that did wonders. He hasnt really had an issue since unless he gets into something hes not supposed to. Quick background refresher: He tested positive and was treated for hookworms when he first arrived at the rescue-and since then he hasnt had one positive stool sample for hooks and we've done about 5 or 6 over the past two years. But because of his symptoms I have dewormed him a few times anyways. The last time being about a month ago-right before we started moving he started getting the grumblys in the morning and showing symptoms again. So I did 3 days of panacur, and then did it again after 2 weeks-his last treatment was about 3 weeks ago. He was great after that, back to normal. Now again, the past few mornings hes been getting the morning grumbles, going out and eating grass, and not eating his breakfast right away-takes him about an hour to finally start eating and thats after I give him a pepcid and some bread. Other than the morning issues hes fine-been active, happy, etc. No problems eating in the evening and no grumbles at night. His output has been a little softer than normal-but I just thought it was nerves as we just moved into a new home a week ago. Do you think this is still the hooks, even though we really dont know if he has them? Or does he just get a little acid reflux or something in the morning. Maybe its been the stress of moving? I really dont know what else to do...I really hope its not the food, it doesnt seem like it is because he eats it fine any other time besides morning...I dont want to change it on him again. I have more panacur-but dont know if it will make a difference if I do one more treatment...I dont want to over do it :/ What makes your hounds get the morning grumblies/not eat breakfast?
