    DefaultBlowing coat and diarrhea

    So here's the story. We were able to hit the beach last Friday and our George had great time, running and jumping of the waves and play with few dogs there. Then Saturday was very cold so we just had less than an hour play outside then George take his usual nap on this tiled floor near the kitchen but he seemed limping on his right back leg when he woke up, no redness or bug bite as we check then he had light diarrhea later that night. He's fine and playing the next morning but had lose stool again then he seemed had lot of falling hair, as far as we remember he had the coat blowing early October, does anyone had experienced with that? He still having occasional diarrhea especially in the morning We were worried too with his limping right after his naps for almost a week now, probably the floor might be too cold for him since fall so we are ordering this orthopedic bed at Pet Supplies, Pet Accessories, & More on Sale Now! from the coupon we got.
    Glad he likes pumpkin and yogurt on his meals now, then a friend suggested the coconut oil which we would try. He will visit the vet on his scheduled shot this weekend so we will mention this but would love to hear any ideas from you guys. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Loose stools could be from swallowing too much water or from too much pumpkin. Shedding is something that goes on daily! Sometimes a lot, sometimes a blizzard!

    Could be from swallowing water (salt water can be dangerous). I would not give coconut oil until his stools are firm. You need cold pressed virgin CO and must start slow to avoid loose stools.

    Thanks for the replies, he's better now and been playful as before, it could be the salt water. Also no limping since he used the new bed but still we are surprised with his shedding, we've been crazy with the hair all over the living room but able to control somehow, he's enjoying the brushing and petting.

    Read this link on the symptoms of dogs swallowing salt water.

    And this one on how dangerous it is if too much is ingested.

    The orthopedic beds are really a great gift for your dog and especially if it has injuries or any form of pain. The thermo orthopedic beds also make a great addition for dogs that need a bit of warmth. I am not sure what to do about the hair though.
