Hi!

Our 5 months old puppy have endless diarrhea. I think she could have just sensitive stomach, but I want to know what do you think.

In a one week Laika have only two or three none diarrhea days. Then poop is normal, but mostly it's pretty wet or diarrhea. I've noticed that dirty water (outside), berries, soil and most of the dog treats are making him stomach reacting like that. Does she just have very very sensitive stomach or could it be something else? Her fur is normal, she eats, drinks and sleeps normally and she is active. Nothing isn't change since this starts. It started when she was something 3 or 3,5 months old.

What should I do? Should I just give her regular dog food (Planet Pet, Profine, Sammy's Field) and hope that this will end or give raw? Could it help? Or is this something really bad...?

She have her vaccinations and we dewormed her just few days ago. I don't know is it same medicine name there, but with Axilur.

Hi Pasasdf,

Oh the diarrhea posts.  Love'em Smile.  As you've mentioned huskies do have a more of a sensitive stomach than others.  But while, it's ok to have diarrhea on occasion, maybe not constantly.  I'm sure it's causing you lots of stress. I know I did when Echo had waterfalls coming out of his bum for the better part of his puppyhood.

First off, I think we need to discern whether or not this is a diet thing or a medical reason.  If your dog is acting normal, eating well, and otherwise healthy post recent vet visit, I'll assume diet for now unless he shows otherwise.  Also a cheaper and easier quick fix and avoids a vet visit which means bills >.<.  You need to stop feeding your dog everything and switch to a bland diet of chicken and rice.  Nothing else.  No treats, no kibble, no human food.  Just chicken and rice.  Prior to the bland diet, I also recommend fasting your dog for 24 hours.  This allows all the bad stuff to be flushed out of his system, allows his GI tract to rest.   I found this to be one of the most important steps in recovering from a bout of diarrhea.  As a little caveat here, if your dog won't eat the chicken and rice, (my dog wouldn't), my bland diet typically consisted of rice, chicken, 1 tbsp of puree pumpkin and 5-10 nuggets of his regular kibble...Keep feeding bland diet until you get a couple days of solid poops.  Then start slowly transitioning him back to his regular diet over the course of a week like you're switching food.

If you're wondering what puree pumpkin is. It literally is 100% pumpkin that has been mashed. You can find it in a can at the grocery store typically in the baking aisle. Make sure you buy the stuff without any additives and sugar, etc...(the one and only ingredient labelled should be pumpkin).

Now let's talk food.  What exactly are you feeding him?  I would recommend a grain free diet (grain usually being the culprit) of a high quality kibble like Orijen.  There are a lot of other brands out there...just do some research. https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/  That's a good place to start.  Find your food.  Check your rating.  How much are you feeding your dog? Over feeding can also lead to lose stool.  While it shouldn't be watery like your pictures, it could still contribute to loose stools.  

IF your dog still has diarrhea despite your attempts with a bland diet...I would then consider medical and you'll have to bring a diarrhea sample in and go see your vet.

Now to share some of my experiences with my dog & finding the right diet balance.  Echo had terrible runs as a puppy.  He ate everything he could find outside which made it worse.  The older he got, the worse it seemed to get.   I would fix his upset tummy and have relief for 2-3 weeks and then he would eat something he shouldn't like a leaf, and waterfalls out of his ass again.  This kept cycling until about 2 months ago when I switched him to raw.  I considered trying out different kibble brands, but was worried about him having diarrhea during the transition and the duration it took to transition. So I decided to try RAW. The effects were immediate. After fasting him for 24 hours and feeding him his first meal (100% immediate transition was recommended), his poops came out rock solid.  I was amazed.  While RAW is not for everybody, it's definitely a consideration you may want to take throughout this process.  But this is more of a future consideration.  Fix the diarrhea first, because I would not recommend you switch to RAW until you know his diarrhea is only diet thing and make sure his GI is back to normal before switching foods.

Good luck! Keep us posted!

Not sure what you are feeding right now, but you mention water outside and that can be a host for giardia which won't be fixed by a standard deworming. If the diarrhea smells really bad that is a sign that it could be parasite related and will require a vet visit with stool sample.
