Thinking of Tee this morning. I mixed rice with yogurt and ground cooked chicken. Frankie loved it. It helped him get some nutrition when he was so sick. HUGS!

Glad she likes the fromm. Sorry about the diarrhea but not surprised with a sudden change. I would stick with the chicken and sweet potatoes and build up the amount of fromm slowly with that. Really, try boiling up some sweet potatoes!

In our experience it takes a few days for everything to normalize in the GI tract when Andy starts having diarrhea. It was suggested we give his bowels a break for a day then feed little bets at a time rather than two big meals. Metronidazole (anti-diarrhea med), rice with boiled chicken, and spoonfuls of pumpkin got Andy's diarrhea and/or loose stools under control ... finally. Every time he gets diarrhea it's the same story. Takes several days to get it under control.

With Tee having runny poo, she may have a bit of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). It's gonna take time for her bowels to calm down. Hard to see when it's going on, but it will get better.

Thinking of you both, you are doing such an amazing job, i can't imagine how hard it is for you right now as Barnaby is our first golden retriever, but with him being the same age as Tesia I know just how much love you feel. We have lit some, T Light candles for you which will be known as Tesia Candles from now on. Sending you both our very best wishes, we are praying that things will get better. Take care x

Sweet potatoes are definitely on my shopping list. She turned away from the Fromm last night - I was so dismayed - maybe because I mixed in some rice? She didn't want it this morning either - so I offered her rice and yogurt instead, and she ate some of that. I have left about half the Fromm down, though, and she went and sniffed at it. I'm hoping she might get hungry at some point in the day. (Right after I posted this, Tee came out and started eating the food I left down. But she didn't eat much of it, in the end)

I called my vet yesterday to get advice about whether to start her on the Metronidazole - even if it was simply the food change. She said yes - even though it is an antibiotic, it has anti-inflammatory agents, which Tesia could also benefit from. There is clearly some inflammation, as there has been a bit of blood (tiny bit). And she said she knows that the drug is sometimes used simply to help a food change. So Tee got her first dose last night and gets her second one in about a half hour. As with your experience, Danny, the vet said it will probably take 2-3 days to start seeing a difference. Poor girl woke me up at 2am to go out (at least she wakes me up!) and had more liquid. But at 8 this morning, it was a *tiny* bit better.

That is just so sweet. I'm really touched. Thank you. Tesia is so lucky to have so many people pulling for her.

Tesia

Praying you and Tesia have a good day.
What about some canned meaty dog food, like Pedigree, that smells good.

Excellent! She should come around the next few days. Our vet also had me give Andy some Pepto-Bismol to soothe his GI tract. I put it in a large syringe, opened his mouth, and shot it down slowly as he lapped it up. It did make the stools look darker, so if you do that don't be alarmed if you see dark stools. Sounds like Tesia is on her way to a full recovery
