mooselips - do you recall how long the diarrhea lasted?
I just gave Olive her Trifexis 4 days ago, and she's STILL having loose bowels. It's gotten a little better, but still - awful. She had me up at the back door 4 times overnight - she hasn't had to go in the middle of the night in about 3 months.
I've been giving her pectin in case it's something bacterial, plus adding lots of sweet potato to her food, but it's been 4 days now...
She's always had a little bit of diarrhea after the Trifexis, but only for a day. BUT, since she just passed 40 pounds, the vet gave me the larger dose (for dogs 40-60 pounds). I think it might have been too much for her tiny tummy.
I've called the vet and they don't seem worried, but I'm becoming concerned about dehydration or something more serious causing it.
Otherwise, she seems perfectly normal.
