    Took Brooke and Stream to the old vet. He gave them a really good check over.

    He said they look fine, Took their temperature which is normal, listened to their chest and said all sounds normal and felt their abdomens and he said that feels normal.

    He said they are not dehydrated and they are lively and look very healthy.

    He thinks the runs are due to the change in food so he said to carry on with the chicken and rice for a few more days and gave me some Pro-kolin as mine has not come yet.

    He said if by Thursday they have still not improved to go back and they will try more things.

    So fingers crossed their bellies are on the mend now x :D:D:D

    Awww I know how you feel - I worry myself silly over the silliest of things.:001_rolleyes:

    Loads of hugs to you and your puppies and I'm sure they will be fine and you will feel better now the vet has checked them over. That pro-kolin is good stuff and I'm sure they will be 100% in a couple of days with poo's as hard as rocks.:laugh:(well okay maybe not that hard.:lol:)

    Yes it doesn't smell right good does it.:laugh: I had a couple of accidents with it - it didn't seem to be coming out so I took it out of her mouth and squirted and it went all over the carpet. The second time I was trying to give my eldest Bichon some and it didn't seem to be coming out again so I had a look at it and then pressed it and it squirted all down his face.:eek: :lol: I had to bath him the next day cos I couldn't get the smell out of his hair.
