Hi Dr Kara,
Update on buster.
He passed 3 stools this morning,1st stool normal light brown in colour and normal smell,2nd stool same colour but more moist,3rd stool dirrhoea and slightly reder in colour.
The very first time he had dirrhoea over Christmas was black in colour and very pungent.Today noticed that the licking of lips was due to him swallowing partial vomiting stage.
Two nights ago after not eating for over 48hrs he vomited after 8hrs which was partialy digested food and grass.He has not eaten since.
At this moment I am taking stool samples over the next 3 days for lab tests.
Spoke to vets today and rather than wait for stool samples and tests have requested full blood tests.
Blood test taken prior to his teeth removal was profile 13 for liver kidney and glucose all were fine.
Hope this helps in narrowing down his diagnosis.

You may have misinterpreted my info regarding my last email.
Buster did not eat for 48hrs and when he ate his last meal he vomited 8hrs later.
On a further note have noticed his stools have on occasions have been mucus based.
Also previously he has vomited up his water which I thought could be colic.
