JakodaCD OA They can dehydrate fast from loose stools. It could be the food/changing the food.

I personally would take him to the vet just to rule out anything medical

Senior male with the runs

Help, my 10 year old rescue male has the runs..bad
So we have had fritz just over a year, and he has spoiled us for all other dogs, I am sure!! He has been the best !!
All of a sudden, he developed a bad case of the runs, and nothing really changed in diet or home. He eats blue buffalo chicken for seniors...good food..I introduced him to pumpkin, and that helped for a few days, than..bam..runs. For the last week, he has been on boiled rice, boiled extra lean gr beef and has helped a little, but tonight, I fed him kirklands lamb and rice...poor guy was soo hungry. We have never had a senior dog, and being seniors ourselves, know how tummy troubles can be in old age fritz eats, drinks and plays like normal...So we are at a loss. If we bring him to the vet, they will just run many expensive tests.....not a lot of faith in vets. Any info would help THANKS
