Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I'm also starting to think he doesn't have IBD but more of a food intolerance.

That's what I think about Dizzy too, and he also has a nervous tummy. If he gets really excited or wound up, he gets the runs. It used to happen every single time we went to the dog park.

Funny that this came up because Gus re-joined his dogwalker yesterday after having stayed home for 3 weeks due to giardia. Poops have been normal since he finished his giardia medicine. But then yesterday, after his playdate, he had major runs. But the bedtime potty break was improving already.

I've read that it's possible that they can get diarrhea after too much excitement or exercise. But does anyone know if that eventually goes away? Gus gets a small meal after his playdates with his dogwalker, and i'm wondering if maybe we should just not feed him after all that exercise.

Well, I've noticed it's gotten a lot better with Dizzy as he's getting older, but I only feed him once a day now, at night after I get home from work. We take a short walk after I feed him (but nothing major) and then later at night a longer walk, but usually he has a couple of hours of inactivity after eating. I don't think activity before eating is necessarily a problem, but I have found its an issue if I exercise him after eating. Generally though, I noticed much better stools with only feeding him once a day. Maybe try cutting out the midday feeding to see if that helps.

haha he actually gets 4 small meals a day because i find it helps with his bowel movements. But i have been thinking about trying to get it down to 3 meals a day. But the timing for that is tough because we don't typically get home from work until 5:30 at the earliest.

I'm going to see how he does this week, and if it doesn't get better, then i'll cut out the post-playdate snack and see how that goes! He hasn't seen his buddies in awhile and he tends to overexert himself when he's excited haha.
