I went to the vet two weeks ago and he gave me a shot and some medication for my recurring poopy problem. All was better for one week but it's back again. Momma has tried feeding me hamburger with pumpkin mixed in it but this is not helping - any other suggestions? Daddy is getting tired of having to clean the carpet.
The house dogs here get rice with a little chicken when their tummies are upset- hamburger might be a little tougher on the tummy. Chester also gets kaopectate- he loves the stuff.
I heard recently that pumpkin might add to the problem if you're trying not to poop too much, too often or too runny, although it's supposed to be good for you in general.
You might try different dog foods, too, some have by products or other stuff that's not good for the best nutrition. McKinley loves his new food, but he's itchy again- the journey continues!
Josh, who lives in a barn- what do I know?
Our vet always says that boiled hamburger or chicken mixed with white rice is the trick. Works for us! Good luck and we hope you are better soon!
