    Dog is Sick again any help?

    Thought i had this whipped
    but the blood in the feces and trots are back

    Off to the vet again another 180$ and they tell me its his food again

    ya know 8 frigging times it cant be the food yes i have changed his food that much nothing i haven't giving him is the same as before

    Right now he is on Duck and potato and Horsemeat to help hold the wight

    he has been dewormed again treated for parasites a few time the vet says they can basically find nothign wrong with him other than

    wait for it


    he' sick

    I took today off because he kept me up all night i know he don't feel well and after no sleep nor did i

    Today he was pretty wound up and i thought we were on the flip side again then he came and sat on me started shaking and drooling like he was gonna vomit back out side we went for another bout

    Try feeding a dog pepto i have prescription stuff for the trots and gave it to him yet again its almost to the point where I'm gonna have to take him to the damn vet again

    Think i might have my dad come get him and take him to his vet just about a hour away

    None of us have had this with any dog and we have always had this breed

    He is holding weight at 60# for now

    The vet says Naw to irritable bowel Syndrome


    So any dog lovers got any ideals I'm out of them there no more different food i can really buy him that doesn't have one ingredient or another that is supposedly making him sick

    Bud,
    Is he eating anything other than his food, chewing wood, bones, digging and eating grubs, insects etc...

    Blood in the stool is usually a parasite, food allergy/reaction or foregin object in digestive tract.

    A different Vet might be the best.

    at the risk of sounding stupid : your pup is worrying too much , and as such has an ulcer, more toys , I take it on faith that you cannot spend more time with your 4 legged child . IMHO tho its either that now , or the pup ate something no animal should , such as insulation .

    Nope

    All stuff we have checked i gave him a bone now not a real bone for him to chew he cant even leave scratches in

    The neighbors think im nuts i got out with him or the wife does everytime he goes out and we stay on top of him to keep him from anything

    Other than the occasional french fry he will snag i don't feed him any human food

    Ya know i wondered about that as he does not like it when i leave espically

    i wonder if i could try to cure him like you would a normal ulcer

    Now would a ulcer be ok for a few weeks even a month and act up ? i've never had one so i don't know

    I never thought of that good ideal RR

    Bud,

    RR advice sounds good. Check with the Vet and see is Bi-carbonate or other tummy meds are ok for dogs. At leasit won't hurt to rule out a worry ulcer

    Bud the ulcer will act up when the pup feels anxious be it a month or even longer . The thing is a " need " for the pup is not satisfied and if you do that thro behavure , or chemicaly you have to do it . I dont have the answers , but am familiar with lots of critters and how they behave lol .

    Are there any new cats in your area, dogs love to eat cat crap, they think it's candy or something, and there is a bacteria they pick up from it that upsets their stomach.

    My wife (a vet tech) had someone bring in a dog that was suffering from salmonella poisoning. It's not something they typically test for, because most dogs aren't bothered by it. Took quite a while to diagnose properly. Similar sounding symptoms...

    Good luck with your dog!

    Always tough since our 4 legged friends can't talk. Hope he gets better soon.

    Have your vet check for a pancreatic enzyme defficiancy. It sounds like what we went through with our pup about 2 years ago. Now on daily meds. and other than the $100/month in meds, is doing great. By the way. our vet refers to our dog as a chow something. You can tell the chow part, loves us and our families and friends, not real friendly to unkowns and for some reason the UPS guy. Good Luck!

    The good bacteria in your dog’s digestive system could have been killed off when the dog was dewormed and treated for parasites. Some cottage cheese or yogurt mixed with cooked rice would help build up the good bacteria in the dogs bowels.
