My Puppy had Diarrhea from 3 months to 8 months...Finally solved
I dont know if I am submitting this thread correctly or not but I wanted to share our story about our GSD puppy Scout in hopes to help someone else and save a TON of $$$ in vet bills!
When we got our puppy from the breeder her stool was completely normal. Our puppy loved to swim and we go to lots of lakes here in Texas... in turn she got Giardia and thats when the issues started. We went to the vet and got her on panacur... she still had diarrehea and vomiting in the mornings on occasion. back to the vet we go, got her on metroconozol... same story, went back to the vet and the vet wanted to run blood test for pancreatic insufficiency among other test. this cost about $700 alone. Our puppy was not eating much and losing weight. Vet seemed to not have a clue what it could be and wanted to put her on prescription science diet, we followed instruction... this food is trash, she didnt like the food and her stool improved but it was soft slightly runny and very light brown... the color of the food. vet wanted to keep her on metro, it seemed that our puppy had been on medicine her whole life, there were a ton of pills that we had to shove down her throat.
about 3 months of this and we decided to switch vets. the new vet gave us the same GUESSES and said the tests that were run were good and would like to run one of the tests AGAIN for pancreatic insufficiency. I realized i needed to take action myself, the one thing this vet said (which i thought originally) was the far out chance it could be food allergy and he wanted to get her on a different kind of prescription food that his clinic pushes. He also wanted to put her on tylan. I took to the forum, got our puppy on BLUE SALMON AND POTATO, and KOCCI FREE an anti parasite medicine. It took about 3 days and her stool is back to normal, eating well, gaining weight!
NO TYLAN, METRO, PANACUR, SCIENCE DIET or any other food the vet pushes.
This was part me venting about the vets and part me being excited that our pupp is healthy again!! I hope this helps someone in the same situation.
