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. Alki went to the vet in Friday for his shots. Yesterday he had a mild runny nose (or it could have just been extra wet). Today he doesn't have that but he's having pretty explosive diahrrea and he JUST puked ONCE. Hes not lethargic or acting really different. My mom did feed him a bunch of fat scraps from some ribs she was cooking. Could that have done it? I'm worried. :/

I am no expert by any means and my example is a different breed, but my sister's Pit Bull did the same thing after being given bacon grease and the fat off of some steak. Granted that's just the one case, but since you said he isn't acting any differently I'd just keep an eye on him just in case.

It could be the meat scraps, Ghost got pretty bad diarrhea from that (marinaded steak) once when she was a puppy. Is he on the same food he was on at the breeders, or are you transitioning him? It could easily be something food related as well. Keep an eye on him and make sure he is properly hydrated, and if he does start acting even the slightest bit off I think a trip to the vet would probably be warranted.

A sudden increase in fat content can cause severe diarrhea and vomiting, and also pancreatitis. Watch him closely and if you notice any changes in behavior or mood, I'd take him in to get checked out. I'd withhold food for a good 24 hours to let his system rest and recover, then slowly start to introduce his regular meal with maybe some live culture yogurt or pumpkin.

Thanks guys. I was so worried. :/. He's running around and playing like normal. I've put his food up and just letting him have some water. We're also considering changing his food. He's in BBWP and like I said before, it's been having horrible gas. I'm thinking it all might be connected and the fat just wasn't helping? I'm hoping anyway. Haha.

The gas is probably from one of the ingredients in the kibble. BBWP is chicken based, and I know a bunch of dogs who don't handle chicken well including our cocker Lulu. Try a different food, you'll probably see a decrease in the gas. We got some sample packs once of the TOTW flavors (you can email them and they'll send you a bunch of samples), and Ghost got awful gas on the High Prairie formula. Good luck, food can be a tough one with these guys.
