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.

PostSubject: How much pumpkin?   Wed Oct 24, 2012 11:48 pm

Hello,

Milla has developed the runs over the last few days, she starts off solid-ish at the start of the day but by the end of the day its just liquid. I've been giving her pumpkin and mashed wheatbix trying to firm it up a bit but don't think it's been helping. My question is how much pumpkin should I be feeding her at a time, I'm worried I'm over doing it as her and Hunter both love it. We don't have the pie filling in australia that I see mentioned so have been boiling up pumpking and then just mashing it for her. Any suggestions are welcome, she's going to get her second shot either tomorrow or Monday so if I don't see any improvement I'll ask the vet for suggestions while I'm there.

TIA

I give mine about 2 tablespoons full when they are having problems. YOu might also want to give then some yogurt inbetween giving them the pumpkin. That is what I do. greek yogurt the plain stuff. It sounds good boiling it up for then. You can also bake a pumpkin in the oven or cook it in a crock pot and freeze some of it for later use.

Pumpkin works both ways, it can firm up soft stool and help relieve constipation and soften too firm stool. So yes, overdoing it can give an undesirable effect but it's not really harmful to your dog.
