Dog has probs!!!
since having my dog from a rescue home, hes poo has been really bad.
he has liquid poo, he has been to the vet and had jabs and pills for the last 3 months.
hes now only eating potatoes and cottage cheese and was better for a little time but now has the problem again.
hes not sick at all! just got back from a 4hr mountain trip and has so much energy and loves to play still.
he had worms when we first got him but he had the pills etc and now hes got the probs again.
any vets or ideas??

Whats all this about dogs with delicate stomach`s about
they have acid about 20 times stronger than ours and can digest bones and stuff
mines just dug up and ate a rib bone which I know he was given it 3 months ago .and his poos are a pleasure to pick up
try feeding him on the stuff it would eat in its natural environment
not spuds and cheese Dairy stuff is well known for giving dogs the trots .Posted 7 years agotrailmoggyMember
don’t feed your dog human food……our westie had problems with sloppy sh!te..and we found out the people that had him before us used to feed him what ever they ate and it took us ages to get him off it and stop him begging for our food
we tried just dried food and he got bunged up so he now eats tesco’s own dog food or winalot, with a little dried food and mix it acording to how sloppy his sh!te is
certain dog treats will do it also
my advise is get him back on dog food and dog treats fast, no matter how much he refusesPosted 7 years ago
Recommended this by a friend who runs a kennel – ex police dog handler (not that that matters, I guess).
Our dog (lab collie x) is 7 and has been on this since we had her. Ran out once so went to Tesco and bought her some other dried stuff, can’t remember what, it was in a yellow bag, stuggled to pick up the debris the day after – not pleasant. Back to burns the next day, back to normal.Posted 7 years ago
I think it’s more expensive than most, but she’s worth it!
Occasionally she has a bit of boiled pasta when we’re camping, but other than that always just Burns, same flavour, twice a day.vondallySubscriber
sensitive stomachs……well what breed pedigree or mongrel? some dogs will take ages to find a brand that agrees with them, also check the contents of the dried food, more protien more active dog, more ash more poo.
agree with boiled rice and dried food, combination of 75 rice to 25 food bunged ours dogs up, dalmatian and then collie. Dalmatian would eat anything and then eject its bowels with a vesuvian expolsion. Collie could not stomach anything with fish in it.Posted 7 years agoNick_ChristyMember
the cottage cheese and potatoes was the recommendation from the vet….. so thanks for that 😉
this is confirmed here also so, cant be that bad can it. (dont have children comment, clearly a prick!)
im guessing he was on dried food. we tried a whole lot of different food since different brands, cheap and expensive. bit at a loss at the moment …..
is burns an english brand? might take a look and see if i can get it here.
btw hes a lab mix, 1 year oldPosted 7 years agobigben69Member

mines just dug up and ate a rib bone which I know he was given it 3 months ago .and his poos are a pleasure to pick up.

Why is it bad to feed your dog human food??
we have just started feeding our dog left overs for breakfast. we have a full house and leftovers are normally quite small but all piled together makes a nice doggy meal.
normally inc meat, potatoes and veg gravy stuffing all the usual stuff.
he does eat butchers for diner though (and normally wiskers if the cat is not hungry.
oh and his offerings are still solid and look “normal”Posted 7 years agobigben69Member
The trouble with most dog owners they don`t research about diet…Posted 7 years ago

Often dogs from rescue centers come from home where they where not fed proper food ect, this can make them poop some pretty nasty stuff once on a proper food, try the dog on some sensitive food or James wellbeloved burns. I have a kennels, we take in strays and this is pretty common with rescue dogs, it often takes a while for dogs to get use to proper food so its unlikely to get sorted overnight. good luck< hope you get it sorted soon..Posted 7 years agoInbred456Member
Stress is a major factor for dogs as well as changing their food regularly. Look online pick a reputable brand with the correct protein level for the breed of dog you have and stick with it. Variety is not the spice of life when it comes to pet food. Differing levels of bacteria in different brands of food cause upset tummies. It’s taken 3 months for our rescue greyhound to settle down and his poo’s are still runny sometimes. Dogs need a good firm poo to keep there anal glands in trim. Keep the treats to a minimum.Posted 7 years agoBarney_McGrewMember
We used to feed Eukanuba or Burns. We’ve now moved to ‘Barking Heads’ with no drop in condition/performance.Excellent protein figures, and has been great for our eldest dog who has a touch of arthritis.Posted 7 years ago
I also feed them on raw chicken. I get whole birds for £1 or so from the nearby chicken factory shop, keep the breasts and then take a cleaver to the remainder and balance that off with some veg.
Feed a dog crap and you’ll get crap crap. Feed a dog well and they will absorb all the goodness and produce nice, stiff crap…LoveMyBikeLadyMember
My puppy had a similar problem for ages when I got her, also being part lab she would tend to try and eat everything and anything.
Every time she had a bout of diarrhea (sp?) I would starve for 24 hours (another vet recommendation) and then give chicken and rice or white fish and rice for a few days, that would clear it up completely for a week or month then it would happen again.
After some trial and error she settled on burns-everything else seemed to upset her stomach,
Now 2.5 years she hasn’t had an upset stomach for about a year or more.Posted 7 years ago
