Default Pets thread.

I recently got a dog and I thought we'd start a Pets thread so we can help each other out with any issues we have with our pets.

I'll start with one i'm having with my 6 month old Lab/Dalmatian mix Louie. He has diarrhea and he has puked once this morning. This all started around 2:30 this morning where I let him outside and he made it without making a mess in the house. But then around 4:30 this morning he woke me up again to take him outside but he made some messes in the house before I got him out. I've let him out twice more since then and he has very little crap coming out. Kinda squirting like a skunk. He's squats like he is going to crap more but nothing is coming out. I just watched a YouTube video of a vet and she said not to worry that it's not constipation.

Anyone know any remedies to help my little buddy feel better and to keep him from getting any sicker?

(Sorry for the gross and graphic first post)

Very normal puppy behavior, usually can happen from a change in food or him eating something he wasn't supposed to.

I wouldn't overly worry about it, it'll pass over time. Just try and get him outside as frequently as possible before incidents happen.

Yeah I think that is pretty normal for a puppy. As long as there isn't blood you should be OK. And if you're changing foods make sure you do it gradually over a couple weeks. Also if your dog tends to eat a lot of grass that usually means they have an upset stomach.

Yeah I got him a couple weeks ago from a family and they gave me very little details about his health and diet. I can tell they did a good job training him but he's still going through his typical 6 month old puppy phases.

I have him on Purina dog food right now and he likes it. I don't give him any people food.

Assuming you just got him, the food change will take awhile, I'm not sure if they told you what they were feeding him but typically it's a painful, messy process when it comes to changing foods unless you can ween them from one to another(mixing the old food with the new little by little).

At this point though you're probably just best to deal with it for awhile until he gets used to it.

Today will be 2 whole weeks that i've had him and i'm just now going through this problem, so could changing foods really be the issue? I'm thinking he just ate something he shouldn't have.

I just let him back inside after letting him sleep for almost 3 hours and he still has it but not that much is coming out. And boy is that a foul smell. He keeps squatting like he needs to crap more but nothing is coming out. I'm thinking his ass is just burning a little and he thinks he still has poop in his ass.

Have you taken him to the vet for check ups since you got him?

No because the family told me they took him to the vet 2 weeks before I got him. I'll schedule him an appointment this week.

Might be a little upset stomach or some thing more serious like a parasite bug that need antibiotics to clear up. My dog ate part of a dead frog and was no better after 3 days. Ended up being parasite. After treatment was on white rice with the water used for two days. No doo doo for 2 days because she had nothing in her gut. Keep close watch on its water intake. We just became owners of mutt 3 month ago. Thought she was a little breed. Now at 5 months she weighs 50lbs. Dammm.

Let's see a picture of that guy. We had a dalmatian once. She sure was protective and smart.
