    Exclamation PLEASE HELP!

    Kimbo will be 7 months in just under two weeks. He's been housebroken fairly well and has learned a wide range of different tricks. About two weeks ago he got sick. He had diarrhea and even threw up. We had not changed his diet and we were stumped. We later found out that the food we bought from the pet store near the house was expired. I gave them my two cents and worked that all out. I had fed him some white rice and boiled chicken as instructed and that seemed to do the trick. He has been fine up until last night. We woke up to find poop everywhere in his crate and on the kitchen floor. I know its not because we left him there too long. He is always in there at night with no problem. My husband and I take him out after every meal, after we play with him, and at least twice before bed, sometimes more. We had tried to put one of those crate beds inside but he pees on anything thats soft to the touch, regardless if its in his crate or not. He doesn't pee on the carpet or on the couch, but if its a pet bed or anything to that sort, he will pee in it. I don't know if its the food that's the issue again or if its something else. can anyone offer some insight? We don't know what to do! He is only crated at night because he likes to chew up the walls. During the day he is not in there. Only when he sleeps. He is still a pup so he is bound to chew if we are sleeping because we can't keep an eye on him. He has had a fecal exam and he does not have worms.

    Hi! When they did the fecal, did they check for giardia? Did you put him back on the same food after the first issue? I am guessing it is what he is eating or giardia.

    Could be food related, or could be just a one time thing. See how he does tonight.

    Agreed..... you have to ask for them to test for Giardia ... some vets do not test for it unless requested.

    He is feeling a bit better but I will bring him to rule out any sickness. I feed him the Royal Canin brand. That's all hes ever eaten since he was able to eat solid food

    Update: So I was told by a fellow ebd owner that feeding him so boiled rice and chicken will help solidify his stool and ease his stomach. I gave him some of this yesterday, just a bit. He did poop but not enough to be able to tell if he is back to normal. I fed it to him agaib this morning. Should I give this to him for a day or two more and see what happens before I bring him to the vet? There is no trace of blood in his stool that I can see since this has happened. Although he seems to still have a bit of trouble eliminating, possibly because I only fed him a bit of the rice and chicken?

    Rice is great to help soft stools become solid. If the blood is bright red I think it means a disturbance in the lower intestine... It's the dark blood you dont want to see. Tidus had a bout of colitis and a 5 day treatment of albon, added fiber and yogurt helped get him back on track. There are certain intestine bad bacteria that dint come out on a fecal unless looking for it specifically, so maybe you can discuss with your vet about doing a 5 day with Albon or Marquis. My vet says don't do more than 5 days because it will kill all the good bacteria too. Thus adding the yogurt to help aid in good bacteria. Keep us posted
