He told me I could come in if I thought it was bad enough if not then come in at 8 when they open. I told him I was giving her the rice and ground beef and he told me not to give her anything else and to stop doing that. He told me no table food. Im not sure what I should do! Im going to wait and see over the next hour or so if it calms down if not I will bring her in. I just dont know how she went from soft serve to water in the matter of a day! She was fine on the pink fromm and I had no reaction from it!

    I wouldn't give her anything..maybe ice cubes so she gets water. You don't want her dehydrated. And no reason to feed her while her system is so irritated. Let it calm down. Make sure and tell him how she got into the trash. Obstructions can be hard to see..even in X-rays. I'm a worrywart and that's my worry for her. Take her in ànd let's hope for the very best...

    Lola is getting a little better its now soft serve yet but harder than last night! She is loving the rice and hamburger! Also another question, after I get her new food in I slowly start mixing it with the rice like 1/4 cup at a time?

    Just keep bland diet going for a week..then add 1/8 cup kibble at a time..if she has any reaction at all..stop kibble and wait couple more days on bland diet..then try kibble again. Are you using beef or chicken with rice? Then don't go to just rice..leave mixture as is.

    Did I miss vet report?? You took her right?

    I took her this morning even though she was fine through the night and didn't make a mess of her crate but he checked her poop and told me it was dietary that he didnt think it was anything major. I feel stupid for taking her now because I panicked about it all but oh well. With bulldogs you never know and I rather be safe than sorry.

    Poor Lola! I just went thru a similar thing with Bogey (with MULTIPLE posts on his poop, runny poop, vomiting, food changes etc, etc) Here is what we did:
    Vomiting and loose stools started. Took him off food (he was on Fromm's large breed puppy) put him on boiled hamburger (lean) and white rice (I read that brown rice is not good for the bland diet because it still has the hard outer shell of the grain which is harder to digest). Stool firmed up, no vomiting, so I started adding small amount of kibble after only 2 days (mistake!). Stools loosened right up again. Back to rice/burger another 2 days, good stools, added kibble, yep you guessed it, loose stools and another vomiting episode. Called vet- stool brought in for parasite check (neg). He felt that his GI tract was irritated and I did not give him enough time to let it heal. we also started thinking that he was reacting to something in the puppy kibble. So, vet put him on Flagyl to help heal the GI tract, and kept him on white rice and boiled hamburger for 7 days! Even his treats- I made some concoction of hamburger, rice TINY bit of pumpkin and Egg whites. Finally, this past Monday, I was able to start introducing kibble, but the vet did not want me to go back to the puppy food, so since his GI tract was "clean and virgin like", he felt I could start him on anything as long as I did it SLOWLY. So, I opted for Fromms Beef Fritata. I started with just a Tablespoon with each meal, then 1/8 cup, then 1/4 cup(it's been 4 days and that's where we are now) the rest is rice and burger. He is doing fantastic! Small, formed stools! Never so happy to see good poop in my life!! I have added no other new treats and will take this very slowly! I hope this helped. Situations sounded all too familiar!! Good luck!!

    great info and so happy for you and Bogey. This is exactly how you try and isolate the problem. If any problem at all..go back to bland diet. The beef Fritatta is a great protein to introduce. Puppy food is very rich for a lot of them.
