My dog has runny poo

My dog has runny poo she has had it since early thursday morning (what i now of) i am worried about her because i thought she was losing weight but my vet told me to just feed her abit more which i did this was about 2 weeks ago but now she has started to get runny poo and she drinks loads more then she used to i don't think there is any blood in her poo and she gets wormed and deflead and she has only just had her booster in september i am just wondering how long i should wait until i take her to the vets she is still eating and has about the same energy and she still plays with my other dog but now she has started getting runny poo the last two nights she can't hold herself at night now and ends up pooing on my bedroom floor which is really runny i can't pick it up in a poo bag it is that runny i am probably over reacting but i just want to make sure she is alright i also forgot to say she is 17 months old and eats wet food (pedigree) with biscuit (pedigree mixer) on top she has this morning and evening and a treat and a denta stix too

Re: My dog has runny poo

I'm not surprised feed it a good quality dry food I've always used Oscars and never had any problems with my dogs website is Oscar Pet Foods UK - Nutritious quality pet foods delivered to your door and its free delivery and will be alot cheaper than wet and dry as it goes a long way as you feed less

Shazza your answer to everything is feed Oscars you wouldn't happen to be a franchisee would you? Presumably Oscars, like most non-multinational brands, is made by Red Mills or one of the other own label manufacturers using their "off-the-shelf" recipies. If its that good why are the owners selling the products via franchise rather than through the normal pet-shop / supermarket channels. Looking at the website it is no cheaper than most of the premium brands on the market!!

Re: My dog has runny poo

If your dog has blood in her poo and is losing weight this is not normal - I had one hell of a fight when my dog was showing the same symptoms, the ignorant vet blamed it on food intolerance!!! alas my dog paid the price dispite my attempts and hefty referal bills to cure her - I am not for one moment suggesting that the situation you describe is the same as mine - BUt- my only advise to you is to persue the vet again, request tests and if still unhappy seek another vet.
Please keep us informed - if you want to pm me feel free to do so and I 'll speak more but off to bed now.
regards
Sue

IMO oscars is not a patch on AG - but I think this dog needs the advice of a vet - not us throwing is wild suggestions relating to diet . To the owner of the dog - I am not in any way getting at you regarding feed - I really do think that professional advise is needed. (again) (Love sue)
Sorry

Re: My dog has runny poo

I agree with the others possibly time to try a different food, a dry food perhaps and althou your pooch may not like it straight away give it time...

Possibly, again as someone mentioned it could possibly be a reaction to the jabs...

If you still are seriously worried and your dog shows no improvement take him back to the vets, thats what there there for if only reasuance.

Keep us updated hun.

Re: My dog has runny poo

I think it is bad advise to say try another food in an issue like this - and I would never suggest such.
examine the facts
Losing weight
Blood
innoculations.
Personally I think the only person qualified to give advise her is a vet.

Is that before or after you suggest changing the food? Ifeel time is an important factor here.
