Pup has the runs

Recommended Posts

I have a yellow lab a little over 5 months old. Yesterday morning his #2 was solid. However, I get home in the afternoon and there is the runny stuff all over his kennel. Mind you he has only had one accident in the kennel before this. Since yesterday afternoon, he is needing to go out about every hour to squat. Is there something I can do to help him out with this?

Can dogs get sick from humans? The reason I am asking is I had the same condition over the weekend (it's going around the family).

How long should I let this go until I take him to a vet? He probably just ate something he shouldn't have...but that is still a mystery to me as to what it could have been.

Thanks for the help!

I've had this problem with my pups. I don't know that they can get sick from us, but I can see it happening. Anyway, we buy the pepto bismal tablets. If it's a younger dog or smaller cut it in half. Put the tablet in peanut butter and they'll munch it down. Works like a charm. Got this from my vet so it is safe for dogs.

My pup had this and my vet said to boil some lean hamburger and rice, separately, and then mix them after they cool. The blandness of them is supposed to calm down their digestive system is what I was told.

When my dog has the same we give him white minute rice for a day or two to get his system back in check.

He may have gotten into something that sent the system out of wack. Happens. My kids once gave the dog half a hot dog and that sent his rear end into hyper drive. White rice for a couple days brings it back to normal.

It took a while but the family now knows the dogs eats DOG FOOD and that is it. No matter how he begs. It is for his own good.

I have also noticed that if I take him to the doggie cutter he gets nervous and this can trigger an "event". If I have something like that planned for him I give him white rice the day before.

You just never know.....it is a big drag.

I forgot about that. That works too. I pepto and do the hamburger and rice. Clears them up in a couple of days.

Posted this simple remedy before but bears repeating as the runs are more common in warm weather. No food for day one, half ration on day two and then resume normal feeding. Works like a charm, doesn't cost anything, and no special preparation of food.

If the rice and hamburger don't work after a few days he could have giardia caused by protozoans. My pup had it twice in 2 months last summer. It can come from waterfowl droppings and some rabbit [PoorWordUsage]. My Vet had to use a strong antibiotic(Flagyl) to clear it up. Next day he was much better. Disreguard if the diet helps your pup.

I would get your dogs feces tested at the vet. It is only $15 at my vet and you will know if you need to let it run its course or need to get him on medication. My dog had giardia twice and with in 24 hours he was feeling better with medicine

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
