    Hi All, just hoping some of you nice people can put my mind at ease.

    FYI This is where the dinner warning comes in

    so I have a 10m old puppy bullwhip. In the past (At around 4m old, so 6 months ago) he has been put on the chicken/egg/rice diet for diarrhoea which seemed to work well.

    His poo’s are sometimes loose which is usually fine and unconcerning. But yesterday he had a poo which was very discoloured, partly runny partly firm, with bubbles, yellow bile and dark red spots. I called the vets and they put him on the same diet as usual. Today he has had another poo which was much the same.

    This is very concerning and the vets still refuse to see him and just have him on the diet, and have only consulted me over telephone and haven’t asked to see a sample or even a picture.

    I know vets are skilled and know what they’re doing, but do you all agree with their course of action?

    I’ll try and add a picture


    thanks

    It could be a bug the vets may be waiting to see if it passes.

    What's 'the same diet as usual'?

    You should consider a stool examination. It can be Giardia or some other parasite. Add probiotics and keep him on rise and chicken diet.

    A foamy, bubbly dog poo suggests either bacterial, Or parasitic Problem in intestines. You need to return to the vet for this one I think .

    It could be Colitis. I'd have another word with your vet.

    When Amber had bouts of Colitis, chicken made her worse so I gave her steamed white fish instead.
