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 wish I had thought of giving Finn probiotics when he started antibiotics. 8 days after he started them, his gut is thoroughly unhappy and so is he. Now he won't eat (but he's still drinking plenty) so I'm having a hard time getting the probiotics in him. Any body have any suggestions? Of course if he doesn't start eating soon we are going back to the vet. The probiotic comes in a powder so I've been adding it to his water today.

If you can pick up a 12cc or bigger syringe from you vet, you could try syringe feeding the water and probiotic together, that way you know how much Finn is actually getting. Hope your baby is feeling better soon! Sad

Have you tried chicken broth? I know it's sort of the opposite, but when Sky got dehydrated once and I wanted her to drink, I mixed some chicken broth into her water. Maybe Finn would go for it since it's liquid. It would be a step towards real food, at least.

Dogs can survive weeks without food, so don't worry about starving him. When Kale has an upset tummy I fast for 24 to 48 hours to make sure all the bad stuff has gone through his system and during that time syringe feed pedialyte to keep up his electrolytes. I never give him stuff that his tummy is going to have to digest cause that seems to make the bad "bugs" overstay their welcome lol

Hmmm, that could explain why Sky seems to have low energy levels for a couple days after a tummy problem. I'll try that next time!
