    DefaultQuestion about diarrhea in my Lab

    My pal, Brody, has had diarrhea for nearly 3 days. He hasn't eaten his dry food since Wed evening (Avoderm Vegetarian - he's allergic to nearly everything).

    BUT - he eats his treats, jumps around, plays, is active, drinks lots of water too.

    Unfortunately, when he goes out to use the can, he eats grass - grass which he later vomits.

    I have been giving him K-P Anti-Diarrhea Kit every 4-6 hrs since yesterday morning.

    I wonder if he needs to go to the vet or if there is something I can do for him here, we really can't afford to go to the vet this week - we get paid next week.

    Any suggestions?

    Worried Lab Mom,
    Heather

    Diarrhea is a symptom. It means there is something going on causing it and leaving it untreated can make your dog very ill.

    Call the vet and try and work something out so you can pay them when you get paid and get the dog and a stool sample into the vet ASAP.
