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.

so my husky has had diarrhea the past 2 times she has pooped, as long as she's been with me she's never had this. i feed her bule buffalo salmon recipe 2.25 cups per day. she does have an ear infection though but i doubt that has any thing to do with her diarrhea. today was the first time she didn't completely kill her food, their's barely anything left but she usually licks it clean. any knowledge on this could be very helpful

Is she on an antibiotic for the ear infection? That can sometimes upset their stomachs.

Also, don't worry too much about her not finishing her food, just make sure she gets plenty of water!

She may have eaten something outside that's upset her stomach. A little bit of pumpkin can help firm the stools (not too much as it can have the opposite effect) and plain yogurt is supposed to help too.

You can also feed her a bland diet to help settle her stomach. People feed rice & chicken or veggies & eggs. Be careful of the rice though if she's used to a grain free diet. I made that stupid mistake myself haha

If it doesn't stop in a day or two or if she stops drinking, I'd take her to the vet. It could be something like worms.

Hope she feels better soon!

Shots don't prevent worms, they prevent diseases. Sometimes even deworming meds can miss a particular type of worm if that one isn't covered in the medication.

Worms are passed along through the fecal matter of other animals or almost anything she can get outside. Has she been anywhere new recently?

Also-- how old is she and how long has she been on Blue Buffalo Salmon? 2.5 cups a day is a lot. Koda is a 60lb male and on Blue Buffalo, he only got about 2 cups a day. It could be that the food is too much or too rich and that's why she's stopped eating as much.
