    DefaultAny ideas??

    I am having cases of intermittent diarrhea between the dogs. It started with Sassy. Hers wasn't just diarrhea though. It was explosive. She and Precious are always together, and they sleep in the same room, but Precious' stools are normal.

    Now, Bo has started having runny gas and is needing to go out in the middle of the night. Luke is not having an issue.

    One of the puppies had an issue, but now it seems to have corrected itself.

    Any idea why it is just one of each pair with the problem?

    I haven't changed food (or feeding habits), and we are halfway in this bag of Natural Balance, so it isn't a new bag.

    Maybe just the two got into something??? It's hard telling I think the normal cure for upset tummy (if it's not severe) is no food for 24 hours then to feed boiled chicken or ground beef and rice for a few days then mix in their regular food again. Good luck getting rid of it.

    Funny thing is, they haven't been around each other. The girls have not been around the other dogs since the puppies came along.

    Bo and Sassy haven't been together in at least 2 weeks.

    Maybe it's something in the water that only bothers Bo and Sassy.

    Bo usually has a rock of a stomach. I just went ahead and fasted everyone yesterday. We will start the bland today.

    anytime we have unexplained diarrhea here, I think giardia and treat them for it with panacur.

    I wouldn't hurt them to treat even if they don't have it?
