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.

Help! Excessive pottying  Empty
PostSubject: Help! Excessive pottying    Help! Excessive pottying  EmptySat Feb 20, 2016 11:41 am

Alpha has pooped 8 times this morning and it's currently 9:30 AM. His poop is really watery, and I found a bit of stuffing (from a toy most likely) along with red blood in one. He's acting fine, playing, ate his breakfast. He also finished his coccidia treatment so that should not be an issue however we were going to follow up with the vet. Does this many bowel movements sound like something that requires urgent medical attention or would you all just watch him? His vet isn't open today, he provides after hours services but the fee is really high. I'm gonna run to the store and grab some pumpkin to try and settle his tummy. It's just been so long since I've had a dog this young I'm second guessing whether or not this is urgent.

As a refresher he is about 9 weeks old.

Thanks in advance!

(He has only had one set of shots that we know for certain because we had those done ourselves, but it doesn't smell like parvovirus, I know that's gross but I think parvovirus is very distinct.)

Coccidia and giardia have a smell all their own too. If it still smells rank he may have reinfected himself. I would try the pumpkin first and just monitor him. If he's got some toy working through his system that will upset his belly and diarrhea will happen. I wouldn't make a trip to vet yet. The blood will be a result of being raw from all the diarrhea. Hopefully that little bit of stuffing is all there was. I would try to find the toy though and see if it looks like much more is missing you need to keep an eye out for.

Update: He ate all of the pumpkin and he has only gone potty twice since this morning. They have both been solid so hopefully we are feeling better.

Yay. Puppies have a lot of ups and downs. So much change for them when they are young and in a new home. Glad he's doing better.
