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.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
