See your vet. Could be a couple of different things. Giardia, intestinal parasites, foreign body, bacterial overgrowth, etc. If going on for 24+ hours, time to get some help. How old is your pup?

3.5 months means most likely an intestinal parasite but could be parvovirus or a foreign body. Any vaccines yet?

I'm voting for Giardia. Take your pup to the vet.

My pup had it.... I started to become concerned as I never had a pup that had diarrhea before. I've had my lab have severe diarrhea in the past but nothing when she was a puppy.

It turned out to be something he ate.

What I did was took him off food for the entire day. (The serving should depend on the size of your dog my pup was 10 lbs)

The next morning I fed him a 1/2 cup of rice. I feed my pup twice a day. I was feeding him a cup of rice a day for three days.

He was getting back to normal stool's by the second day so I added a little (small handful) of his food to the rice. I continued to add a little more of his dog food each feeding. By the fourth day he was 100% better.

I know there could be 1000's of different reasons why your pup has diarrhea this method worked for me. I've added boiled hamburger meat to the rice for my lab in the past.

I would have to say if your pup is playful, eating normal, drinking water, happy, playful, acting normal the pup should be ok.

If your pup is acting out of the ordinary there defiantly is something wrong.

I hope that it turns out to be something your pup has ate also!

My 5 mo Lab had it 3 weeks ago. It was really bad. In the crate every hour overnight. I called the vet, since I had done a previous stool sample she prescribed a med. the dog took for 5 days and it did the trick after the first day.

When you say she's been wormed once, do you mean one dose of dewormer or one dose, two weeks apart, three times?

I deffinitly would bring a stool sample in to the vet and make an appointment Get him/her checked for parasites etc... If nothing is wrong I then would Attribute it to the food What are you feeding? Food is a biggy here. A low quality food like Science Diet can sometimes cause that.

Canned Pumpkin will often do the trick. A guy at a kennel up in Chisago recomended giving it a try and it works great. That and the dogs love it.

Hard to get a post in working long hours and the problem is hopefully already cured. Will post this up anyways so someone can use this home remedy in the future. Has worked for us everytime the squirts show up. Day one - no food. Day two - half ration. Day three - back to normal diet. If symptoms are still there, it's time for the vet.

For a grown dog, we take them off food and give a tablespoon of Pepto-bismo twice a day. On the second day we feed white rice and ease back to dog food the third day. With a young pup I play it safe and see the vet if it lasts more than a day.

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
