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 started using pumpkin today to firm it up and it worked at first, but after the second meal with the pumpkin, we're back to pudding. I have a vet apt tomorrow, by she was just at the vet 2 weeks ago and was given a clean bill of health... What could it be?

Could she have eaten something that upset her tummy in the past couple of days? How much pumpkin are you giving her because too much can have the opposite effect. If she does not correct herself within the next 24 hours or so, you could try 1-2 tablespoons of plain non-fat yogurt (any kind with active cultures) and see if that helps reset the healthy bacteria in her digestive tract.

What are you currently feeding her? And has she done well on it prior to this tummy upset?

I had her on Iams puppy, which she did five on. But I switched her to Nutro Natural Choice Puppy, which I thought would be better for her, but it dosen't seem to be the case.

And I think I may have given her too much pumpkin...

Try backing off the pumpkin and give her at least 24 hours to see if she corrects herself. If she isn't getting better, try 1-2 tablespoons of yogurt. If that doesn't help, I'd see if a bland diet helps her.

Freya had really wet BMs all day yesterda, she wasnt eating or drinkng so I syringed some chicken broth into her. I boiled up some chicken nad rice, she ate that last night and also for breakfast and lunch today. I added some of her dry food to it for her lunch time meal as her poos are starting to firm up again.

It dosen't seem to bother her. Her mood/activity level/overall demeanor is still the same which is why I'm not too too worried, but it can't be that great to have a diarrhea squirt gun as a bum. I'll def update after the vet apt tomorrow.

That was the same as Freya. She slept most of the day (althought I think htat may be because she only came away from her litter mates on Saturday and she was a little unsure of the environment) but when she was awake she was playful nad happy.

Jinx has a bout of COCCIDIA. She's on antibiotics and should be back to hard poppies in a day or so Smile
