Our 9.5 week old Lab Tasman has been having diarrhea for the last 36
hours. I have not changed her food but did give him a little bit more
(according to weight) starting on Monday. He has been eating an awfull
lot of little stones... Any advise?
Oh of course when I see him gobble up the stones I try to take them out
of his mouth but I'm not always quick enough.
We are using Eukenuba for large breed puppies.
Our CoCo had diarrhea, and we did the following as per the vet's instructions (but you should still call your vet):
1.) stop feeding and give gatorade and water for 24hrs
2.) slowly start to feed a diet of plain white rice and boiled chicken breast (75% rice to 25% chicken)... begin with 2Tbsp every 2 hours, and then over a 2 day period we worked up to 1/3 cup 3 times a day. After that, we started mixing in her kibble very gradually into her meals. It took us 4-5 days to reinstitute her full kibble meal.
Things to watch out for are vomiting (this can be caused or lead to dehydration), blood in her stool, and lethargy. If she is acting and playing normally, isn't vomiting, and has no blood in her stool it probably is just an upset stomach from who knows what, and the above diet should settle everything for her. It worked for us!
