HOLY CRAP!!! Goofy butt just turned into a faucet.

I am feeding him blue buffalo chicken. There has been no change at all in his diet, so I have no idea what caused it. I gave him pumpkin this evening and that didnt help. The pumpkin was about 3 weeks old and in the fridge. Wonder if that is what caused it, does pumpkin go bad?

Any thing else I can use to slow this down?? He went to the vet today just for dry skin, but got no medications at all.

Re: HOLY CRAP!!! Goofy butt just turned into a faucet.

I would think anything cooked 3 weeks ago would be bad by now but I don't do pumpkin.

Could it be stress from the vet? Maybe he sniffed something on the ground and caught a nasty stomach bug? Morgan had one of those last summer, nasty.

Re: HOLY CRAP!!! Goofy butt just turned into a faucet.

You said the pumpkin didn't help, did he already have diarrhea and you gave the pumpkin in hopes it would help?

Any way, my dog I'd fast for 24 hours (give water) and then start the bland chicken/beef and rice diet

Yes he stool looked loose earlier during the afternoon, so I give him the pumpkin to catch it before something set in.

should I try yogurt?

Re: HOLY CRAP!!! Goofy butt just turned into a faucet.

Well, at least you have a sense of humor about it...and sympathy for your dog. Poor pup. Just keep an eye out for dehydration.

I have learned the hard way to keep a stash of anti-poop meds on hand.

Long night ahead for you.....

Dont give him yogurt. Dont give him anything. Stop feeding him.

Wait until tomorrow night and then give him some boiled rice with ground beef or chicken cut into small small tiny bits in it.


Anti poop meds....They can have Loperamide (Immodium).
Immodium Dosage

I keep this on hand in the dog drawer with other meds, leashes, etc for when it is needed.

Hope he feels better. BTW, haven't seen pics of him since Laurie's last fall....would love to see how big he has gotten!!
