    Default Problem with Bentley this morning

    So to start off with I need some help/advice. Bentley was just at the Vet last Thursday for a ear infection.. He gave him some drops and his last puppy booster, along with a rabies shot and the worm meds. while we were there he checked his stool and everything and all was good and healthy. Everything has been fine since then and stools were hard. well starting last night they were real runny... I woke up this morning at 3 am to him stomping around his kennel needing to go out which was odd for him.. so I took him out and he did his business and it was like pure watery diarrhea. So we came back in and he went back to sleep in the kennel. Well about 5 am we heard him move around again and before I could get into the living room he went all over the kennel.. Im not sure what to do about it. We haven't changed anything in his food and like I said before everything was great even yesterday morning his stools were fine and then bam last night diarrhea bad.. There's no throwing up and hes still eating and drinking fine for now. he's still playful and all. But I would like some other opinions. Id hate to take him to the vet again and just be throwing money away for nothing when just last week he was fine.

    Hmm that seems strange, I would think it would have nothing to do w/his vet visit because that was a week prior. Has he eaten anything lately besides his kibble?!! What about kid's toys, or doggie chews?!! Rawhides?!! Bullies are prone to obstructions because some love to eat EVERYTHING!!! How old is Bentley?!!

    Totally random, but I see you are from Bristol, TN. My grandfather lives in Bristol, VA… been going there for years. Beautiful area

    yes actually we just moved to Abingdon va but we are right on the state line. and that's great.... and to answer your question no the only thing he has had is his kibble. We give him a treat every day or two as well but they are just blue buffalo biscuits and he has been doing fine on his food and those up until now. We did notice yesterday that he has been chewing the underneath of his kong crate pad but from what I could tell he didn't eat any of it. Would something like that all of a sudden cause him to have diarrhea? We never give him any rawhides. the only toys he gets are his rope toys and balls, the occasional stuffed animal because he loves those.. but as soon as he tears them to where the stuffing is exposed we take them.

    If your totally sure he hasnt eaten anything he shouldnt and no change in diet etc and is up to date with all shots etc he may just have an upset tummy. Give him canned pumpkin that helps with both diarrhea and constipation xx

    It is possible… I'm going to tag some members that have more experience w/obstructions to get their take on this. I know that sometimes they have vomiting & diarrhea… just in general NOT feeling well. Is he eating/drinking normally?!! You can add pure pumpkin (NOT the pie filling) to his kibble to help firm up the stools just a couple of tablespoons. Sometimes they are just getting too much kibble, and this is especially the case w/puppies... I cut back my Winston for the same reasons.

    yeah i'll give the pumpkin a try. We give him a cup and a half of the morning and then another cup and a half in the afternoon. I've heard everyone say not to feed them that much and I've had people say to feed him a lot more than that. He gets the Blue Buffalo fish and potatoes. He is still drinking like a fish,which he always has.. My wife just called though and said he hasn't touched his food yet but some mornings that's normal because hes lazy in general. She is suppose to let me know though if he don't eat. I just know the pooping like he did is not like him at all.. he was going every 2 hours and then this morning couldn't even make it to the door.

    I would definitely cut down on the food… how old is Bentley? Is he overweight? I would give him a cup in the morning, and a cup in the afternoon. Many of us on here have given our bullies various fruits & veggies to keep them full, but not pack on the pounds.

    He just turned 9 months old. He weighs 54 pounds. The vet said he thought he was really well balanced right now but he didn't want to see him get much bigger. I thought about cutting down on his food to that but it seems like when I try to give him less when he gets done with it he looks up at you and gives you that look.. like really is that all I get? haha. But i'll cut down and see how that goes. I thought that might be an issue if I was giving him to much protein. What kind of fruits and veggies do they like the best?

    My bullies liked bananas, blueberries, strawberries, watermelon, apples, green beans, broccoli, carrots and snap peas. Make sure to ONLY give him one variety at a time so you can see if he has allergies… redness, bumps, patches of hair loss, vomiting and diarrhea.

    Do you give the peas, green beans, etc. to them just raw? We tried giving him apples once and he wasn't to fond of those lol but i'll try the other stuff to

    Yep… just raw!!! Cut them up in edible pieces, because of course they swallow them whole!!! LOL
