Antibiotic induced loose stool


Recommended Posts

One of our girls recently finished a 2- week course of antibiotics which has left her with a loose stool. We've generally had ridiculously healthy dogs, so I've totally lost track of how long this might last. Obviously taking steps to resolve but what has been your general experience? Thanks!

It all depends on how compromised her system is.  A good probiotic like Forti Flora will help a bit faster than natural alternatives like buttermilk or yogurt, but it could take a couple days to a couple weeks to completely resolve.  A few days of a bland diet can also help, and make sure not to stress her digestive tract too much with treats and people food she's not accustomed to during this time period.
