Crying diarrhea

Post by SunnyB on Fri May 10 2019, 01:32

my baby is sick. Sad we transitioned her to dry food for over a week and 2 days ago she is on 100% dry food.
i noticed her stool is a bit loose last 2 days but this morning it's all watery and i can see that she still wants to release more but nothing comes out. she rubs her butt on the grass, on the floor....

what to do? novice mum here Sad

Poor Sunny! 

You may have transitioned too quickly. What have you transitioned her on to & what was she on before? 

She's quite young, isn't she?

If she is that loose, really watery, I would probably get her checked by the vet. I wouldn't expect changing food to have such a big impact and it sounds like she's getting worse not better. Just in case, I'd make sure she's not got an infection or anything.

Just seen she's 14 weeks.

I'd really get a vet's advice, to be honest. At that age they can deteriorate very quickly & it's best not to take a chance.

I'd still ask what food she was on, and what food you've transitioned her on to?

How worrying.
Aside the runs, how is she behaving ?
It may not be the kibble but that she’s eaten something she shouldn’t (toxic plant, snail, bird poo, etc).

My Nifty gave me a huge scare after eating a snail, rushed to vets as she became ataxic.

Ensure Sunny is at least drinking well to avoid too much dehydration after a few days now. Do check her environment to ensure it isn’t something she shouldn't eat (including human food !)

Good luck and do let us know how it goes

Is it the Ivory Coat puppy food you're feeding? If so, it isn't the best food around. Although it's grain free, the meat content is poor in as much as the actual quality is poor (meat meal rather than actual meat).

That's not to say that it's causing the stomach problems, it may be something totally different. 

However, a puppy should normally be transitioned from one food to another over at least two weeks, preferably three or more.

Yes, how is she? 

Just a thought - has she been wormed?

she's eating & drinking well, plays for a few minutes and then back to her bed... 70% today is cuddles.
went to the vet and was given antibiotics and probiotics for 5 days. also have to feed her boiled chicken and rice for a week.

yes, she's up to date to wormers.

tomorrow is another day 🤞🤞🤞
