Hi, for the past 3 or 4 days, Popeye has had diarrhea, all the time. He is going like 5 or 6 times a day, and he is eating the same food as Hazel. When I 1st got him, the vet said he had worms, so I gave him the meds, and it was gone. do you think he could have it again?? thanks!

I don't know if this helps or not....but from what I understand, dogs can have the "stomach flu". According to my vet., when this happens, you are to cut off all food for a day, with small sips of water.  Then the next day, introduce rice, and if that goes ok, then some cottage cheese.AND, if that works well for a day, then reintroduce their normal food, but smaller amounts to see how their body does with it.  By the 3rd day, all should be well, and things can go back to normal.  It feel like what I have to do for my two boys that I have when they get the stomach flu!  I wish you luck!!

Oh...good luck!!!  I do so hope that this works for you!!  I'm sorry that your baby is sick!  I feel bad for you.....it is no fun when that happens, and they can't vocalize what is wrong.

I'd get another fecal to rule out worms first...

yes definitly get another fecal test....if that is fine, he might have the run from Hazel coming into the home??? It was a change for him. Canned pure pumpkin works real well if you mix a TBS in wih their food for the runs. Good luck and let us know how Popeye is doing.

Sadie had diarrhea two nights ago, what I did was substitute white rice for half of her kibble portion with 1 tbsp pumpkin and now she has solid stool!! She loved the pumpkin too.

Good luck and I hope Popeye feels better soon.
