    Exclamation Make it Stop!

    Well it looks like it wasn't the yogurt........ We had another rough night, Brutus woke up at 12:30 crying and barking to go outside. As soon as my boyfriend opened the crate, he made a mad dash outside to Not only was it super smelly, but very runny We didn't hear another peep out of him, either from us trying to get some sleep, or he couldn't hold it, but we woke up at 5 to all over his crate again

    Needless to say I'm super worried about our baby, and just don't understand what is wrong. He has been on BB Wilderness for quite a while now (2 bags) We have always fed him yogurt in his dinner, which we didn't do last night to try to make it better. The only change he has had is we stuffed his kong with peanut butter Saturday night and then again last night, but that wouldn't cause this reaction would it? I also put 2 tablespoons of pumpkin in his dinner last night, but it didn't help

    My boyfriend and I both work together, so one of us had to go to work. So I'm here worried, and Jay is waiting to take him to the vet when they open..... oh poor Brutus.

    I completely understand your worry...this has happened to both of my bullies...once even on the same night. I took stool samples to the vet, and it turned out they had an increased amount of a certain bacteria in their poo...it was a bacteria that's always there, just more. They were both put on antibiotic and it cleared up in a few days. I have to say it did come back a few times though, so they went back on the med. The vet said it could have just been something in the yard or something that was causing this...maybe even something seasonal. I would get a stool sample to the vet. Good luck and keep us posted on your baby!

    Oh NO, both on the same night, you poor thing! I called my mom, and she said it sounded like a bacterial issue too. I'm just hoping he didn't eat something he wasn't suppose to, and hasn't passed it yet. I don't think I can take him having to have another surgery. He loves rocks and sticks, we've tried REALLY hard to make sure all of that stuff is out of the yard, but you just never know.... it's like they can hunt those types of things down

    This totally sounds like me night last night! I got a bit of food poisoning and barfed and all night. While I was reading the insane amount of causes of food poisoning, I'd imagine it would be the same as dogs. I would definitely take your baby to the vet if it doesn't stop today, and check for things like Gardia. Good luck!! Keep us posted..

    I hope you feel better @ModernFemme. We are taking him as soon as they open. Brutus is a celebrity at his vet, so they love anytime they get to see him, I just wish it was under differrent circumstances! I wonder how they test if it's food poisoning?

    Food poisoning is apparently caused by a lot of different bacteria/virus. If the yogurt was bad for example, that can produce symptoms even 48 hours after consuming (at least in humans)

    Sunday night when we gave him the yogurt, all three dogs got it, could it only make him sick? We feed non fat 100% pure greek yogurt. They also had the same yogurt a few nights before

    I would say spoiled yogurt or yogurt with a live culture out of whack could totally make your dogs sick. Definitely mention that at the vet. Oh, and maybe bring a small sample of the food and the yogurt with you? (And don't feel bad. The stuff I ate last night tasted awesome, i could have gotten something from someone not washing their hands!!)

    I'm going to make sure that yogurt gets thrown away ASAP. It's weird because he is running around playing like everything is perfect, but I also know EBDs have such a high thresh hold for pain, sometimes you just don't know. When Brutus had his fractured tibia he never even cried

    stop everything except his food...and give him the pumpkin again. Actually you might want to start bland diet for a few days then introduce things back in one by one when his poops are a bit more solid

    I agree with @Lucy-licious I would switch to bland diet asap until things get back on track. If he is still having issues after a day or so of bland diet I would go to the vet and get him checked out. Is he still drinking plenty of water as well? One thing we found with Bacon is when he is on the bland diet he doesn't drink a lot of water so we add water to his food to make sure he stays hydrated. Good luck, hope Brutus starts feeling better soon.

    whenever Amber has problems (on a rare occasion,like when she stole allthe biscuits at Thanksgiving) I strip her diet, break out the rice cooker and feed her rice for a couple of days to bind her back up. I would get him checked out to be safe. Good luck.
