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.

PostSubject: Runny Poop and some other random questions   Runny Poop and some other random questions EmptyTue Aug 14, 2012 1:36 pm

I Just read someone elses post about her doggie having bright orange runny poop. Well, for the past 2 days, my puppy has had runny poop. It's not orange or anything. It's actually greenish brown. I called the vet and they told me to wait a couple more days and if it still persists, to bring him in then. They also said it could be because of the food change. When we got him from the breeder he was on some purina dog food, but we switched him to blue buffalo large breed puppy food. I don't think it's the food, because he's been on it for almost 2 weeks now, and this just began a couple days ago. I also read some peoples suggestions that they started feeding their doggie that had similar issue rice and chicken. If i do this can i use turkey instead of chicken, and do i shread/chop or grind the meat before feeding it to him? Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

Some additional info: he's 9 weeks old, and I just realized as i'm typing this that the runny poop started the day after he got his 2nd round of shots. Could this have anything to do with it? Thank you! Also, since i'm here lol do any of you use trifexis flea/heartworm medicine and if not, which do you use? The breeder used revolution, but i'm wanting a pill and not something topical. thank you so much!

Your pup may just be reacting to the shots he just had. If he has been doing well on his food without issue prior to his second round of shots, I wouldn't change it - but maybe try giving him a little canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling) with his food - about 1/2 tablespoon since he's only 9 weeks old. He should get better in a couple of days if it's because of his shots.
