Dog has problems

6 posts in this topic

My 1.5 year old chocolate lab has had diarrhea for about a day and a half now. 2 nights ago, she swallowed a piece of leather. It passed through yesterday around noon but ever since then she has had runny poo. Every hour or so since then she has had to go out. She tries to poop but only will go a small amount and it is extremely runny.

Has anyone had this problem? I understand that I should probably take her in but the vet will not be open Sunday or Monday. Do I wait this out and see if it gets better in the next couple of days? Or should something be done right away?

I would get her to a vet ASAP!, dehydration would be my concern. It could be possible that it triggered pancreatitis?

I took her in and they gave her some stuff to take. It wasn't an obstruction or anything like that. They said the leather just triggered an upset stomach, which is extremely upset at this point. They said nothing about pancreatitis. What would be the symptoms of that? What should I watch for?

Good deal!!! My friend's dog had a Pancreas flair up from being off schedule on his eating and then wolfing down a smoked dog bone. Scarry stuff, his dog lost a lot of his spunk. The main symptom was diarrhea that kept getting worse, he spent a ton of money having the dog treated over night at the emergency vet.

I keep about 10 + lbs of ground turkey on hand at all times. Cooked ground turkey or beef and rice is the "cure-all" for MOST stomach problems. I have used this method to clear up stomach issues on 5 different dogs in the last 2 years. Works like a charm. Plus the dogs REALLY like it.

She is all better now! Either the pills or the lake or a combination of the two and she is all better, just a little tired.

JB,

The vet gave her some food that was ground egg yolk, turkey and some other vitamin stuff. I think I am going to try to your suggestion and keep some ground turkey around. She loved the food also and it seemed to be better for the stomach.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
