Guest cuddlebug117 Posted August 29, 2016 Share Posted August 29, 2016 (edited) I have a new greyhound, I just adopted him on Friday but have had him for a little over 3 weeks now. I started him on his second set of dewormer along with a time released tape worm pill the agency had given me instructions for. I gave him his first session of dewormer when I first picked him up as a foster and he had runny stools which I expected because of the diet change and the dewormer. I started the second session of dewormer with that time released tapeworm dewormer pill on Saturday as instructed. This greyhound we have worked hard to get him house trained and I thought we were there, until Sunday morning when he had a runny stool in the living room (shampooed and deoderized) then another in the evening same spot (he had marked there in the begining of housetraining so maybe it still had a little scent. Then this morning my husband failed to stop him from going again in that same spot ( so the shampooer came out yet again followed by generous sprinkles of baking soda to help neutralize hoping that will cut any more scents. About half an hour ago I caught him walking over to that area he didn't go but I could tell he needed to go so I shoed him away from that area and he went and waited by the back door to be let out. I let him out and followed with a treat. He defecated and I rewarded (trying to keep positive reinforcement). I then went to go clean it up (I like to keep the yard cleaned up)and noticed there was a lot of mucus (really slimy). I had never seen so much and am not sure this is normal with the wormer? He has been vet checked prior to being dewormed and was given a clean bill of health, he also isn't in any discomfort and is acting as normal as he has been while in my care. I'm new to greyhounds but know they have a sensitive digestive tract. Tonight is the last dose of his 3 day wormer so should I just wait it out and see if it gets more normal when the wormer has run it's course?
