Well crap!!!

Postby rebelmdb69 » Sun Jul 13, 2014 6:41 am

Literally lol my 6 month old female lab has the squirts. Waiting for my vet to open at 9 so I can call but figured I would ask for help here as well. Yesterday did some water work and she retrieved her first real live duck (yea I know it's later than I wanted as well). I'm sure she ingested some water from the pond but has before as well. I also gave her bottled water in her bowl and from my bottle which was cold. Is there something I should be doing/not doing at this time. I haven't fed her yet today only a bath and watered. She's on PPP sport 30/20 if that matters and has been from day one with me. TIA oh and here's a pic of her trying to drown me after I went and got the duck in the pond when she blinked on it. Like I said first time lol Image

I'm not a vet but I've used rice with some bacon grease (to make it taste better for a dog). Usually dries out the craps in a day or so.

Also you can give a dog pepto bismal I believe and it'll help it's stomach and poop.

Well vet didn't seem too concerned just have to keep an eye on her. Never mentioned anything about giving her pepto.

I've heard plain, unflavored yogurt can help as well.

Diarrhea is a pretty common problem with hunting dogs. My dog's tend to get the runs about once or twice a year. If it doesn't go away on its own in a few days of feeding a bland diet (most cases do) then I evaluate and treat it. Basically I just do a fecal exam/giardia antigen test. If it is negative then I give metronidazole and high fiber food (hill's WD works great) as my first line treatment. Early last week my farm dog got the runs and I treated him with 4 days confinement to the kennel with a bland diet and it went away on its own.

Rice is good for settling the stomach. My dog has the squirts all the time after playing in the salt water. I think he's just now starting to learn how to avoid drinking it while retrieving. I don't get concerned with the squirts unless it carries on for more than a day.
