Zoesmom Posted February 27, 2019 Share Posted February 27, 2019 Hello, Im new and need help! Long story short, we rescued a GSD end of Nov. and Zoe was having multiple issues which we took to our vet numerous times. Ended up she has hookworms. Our vet ( that I fired) never tested for parasites/ hookworm. My friend just rescued a Greyhound and was dealing with hookworms and has been very helpful which is why I am in a Greyhound forum. It took us 7 weeks to get to this diagnose and she is bad now, As of Sunday she has full bloody liquid diarrhea. We just got her home from emergency care and I am reading up all I can about preventing reinfection. I always clean u her poo immediately but what do I do with liquid bloody diarrhea? Should I spray with bleach/ water? There is no way to pick it up. I have D.E. That I can pour on it...any thoughts? Im so worried about her. Up until Sunday she wasnt bad...stools firm and some blood I. It , but now its just pouring blood! I am so. MAd at the vet for doing full blood work up and no parasite testing...his next step was to do Ultra sound which was normal....we were going to get a scope done...3x in emergency when blood was bad and thought it was HGE. First ER visit fecal float was negative, second trip they didnt do any testing, 3rd trip we got the positive 1+. Sorry for my rant, but my immediate question is how to clean up this I fected hookworm bloody diarrhea? Thank you so much! Dana PS. I think I will be going to the Greyhound Savvy vet listed on this site for her treatment...I think its best to go to a doctor familiar with treating these stubborn worms!
