, I can help you with your question today.
It sounds like Titch spends a lot of time outside, is that right?
Yes, unfortunately it's not legal to prescribe medication without examining the dog. I can help you come up with a plan , things to ask the vet if necessary, and some home remedies and OTC medications that might help.
Do you want to continue, or did you misunderstand the service?
No problem. Let's keep going then. I'll continue to ask a few questions to understand her condition better. Don't worry, I've paused the timer1
How long has she had loose stool?
Any weight loss at this point?
In that case, we can start with a bland diet of boiled white rice and boiled chicken.
Continue this until her stools are normal, then transition back to her normal food over 3-4 days time.
We can also use a dose of OTC imodium. How much does she weigh?
I figured she didn't weigh as much as 12 kegs ;)
OK, she can have 1/2 tablet of Imodium (1 mg loperamide) every 8-12 hours as needed to control the diarrhea.
You can also start an OTC human Probiotic like Culturelle. These are available at the regular human pharmacy.
Break one capsule over her food once daily (of the probiotic).
Yes, human Imodium, 1/2 tablet
No, I prefer the probiotic rather than the yogurt - some dogs are lactose intolerant.
Great! Please let me know if you have further questions. I am happy to continue until I provide the service that you seek. If you don't mind changing the rating, that would be greatly appreciated too (a new rating will override the old one)
