    DefaultBoomer has the runs...

    He's had the runs 2 times today...he woke me up at 6:00 this morning and then he just went for a walk in the woods with Nick and had it again. He seems to be acting totally normal though, so I don't think he's sick. ??? ??? ???

    This is only the 3rd time in the whole six years we've had him that he's actually had the runs...so I'm a little unsure about what's going on. I don't think it's possible that he's eaten anything bad...don't know what to think! Any ideas?

    Both of my dogs have had the runs a few times, and it's always something they ate. Peanut has a sensitivity to beef, so she'll get the runs if she eats just a teeny tiny little peice. :-\

    Dan and I monitor Baloo pretty much at all times when he's out of his crate. He had the runs a few times in the last few months. The one time he had some brightly colored poo with foamy peices in it, he ate something, neither me or Dan had any idea what it was or when he could have gotten it.... :-X

    So maybe he just got into something when you weren't looking...?

    I would not feed for 24 hrs, then do bland diet until his poops harden up, and then wean back to regular food. It's always worked well for us.

    Hope Boomer feels better soon!!

    ETA: For us, bland diet is boiled chicken and rice.

    Maybe an upset tummy from something he ate. They are so quick. I hope he feels better soon. resting his tummy is a good idea.

    Making rice and chicken now. He was begging for an apple slice earlier...so hopefully his normal behavior is a good sign. We'll just take it easy for a couple days.

    We recently bought a new bag of food...I think I'm going to buy a new bag...just because I'm paranoid. :-\

    Oh, I'm sure it's just a passing thing. Hopefully the chicken and rice will get him right back on track
