    I had a dog 30 yrs ago who got parvo, she was in middle of getting all her shots but cought it, omg the smell of the poop is the grossest smell ever. it literally turns to water poop like a hose. By the time i took her in she was to sick and passed away. Hope your puppy feels better and it just ends up being that she may need to be wormed or something like that,

    When we first got Meeko we got him home and he had watery stools we thought due to stress of travel .. He kept havin them and started to get mucus and blood in it. He was absolutely fine in himself tho not lethargic or sick. His belly was hard and looked huge.. swollen and bloated.. We took him to vets and it turned out to be worms. He had a dose of worming tablets and a HUGE worm came out of him then after another dose 2 weeks later lots of little ones. It was horrible bless him. Maybe ur little one has caught worms. I have a pic of how his poor belly went but dont know how to upload. With Parvo it says the symptoms will go from minor to severe and life threatenin within hours so u'll know and if theres no vomit or acting lethargic and is upto date with shots id be a bit less worried of it x

    Hey Guys so I have some updates!

    When I had gotten home that day, his stool was almost ALL blood. I immediately called the vet, washed him up and brought him in. In the waiting room, he had another accident (was again completely ALL blood) so the vet was able to see the severity of the situation. She brought him in, he got a shot of antibiotics and was given Metronidazole pills to take home. She took a sample of the stool as well for tests.

    She called and informed me the following day that the tests were negative (what a sigh of relief!) So he had eaten something he was not supposed to. The only thing I can think of since I have not seen him poop out anything abnormal is the salt from outside. It had recently snowed and it was his first time seeing snow so he was licking everything and I think might have tasted some salt as well I do recall he vomitted that same night but wasn't anything major. The apetite loss soon started after that.

    Today, woke up and he had another accident I'm having a hard time with the antibiotics because of course he doesn't like the bitterness (who does) and he's had this same side effect before where it made him poop more than he already was...As for the bland diet, he doesn't seem to want anything to do with it Any suggestions? I'm giving him the rice and chicken as instructed by the vet but he wont eat it...I dont know its because he can smell his medicine hidden it it or what...He hasn't been acting lethargic, even at the vet he was still pretty jumpy, which is a good sign, but my heart's breaking seeing him sad because I can see that he is...

    Maybe he's allergic to THAT antibiotic, I'd call the Vet and request a different one.

    A good way to get it down him is to cook ground beef, roll into a ball w/the pill inside.

    Feed him a couple small ones so he'll gobble the 3rd one down. If all else fails, ask Vet
    if you can crush it then mix w/water and syringe down his throat. Some pills can't be
    be crushed, it takes away from their effectiveness so do check.

    You can give him 1 tbsp of canned pumpkin (not the pie filling) to firm up his poop.

    Keep us informed, praying for your 'lil guy.

    Actually, put the tbsp of pumpkin IN ground beef also, make enough to freeze extra so
    you'll have enough to give him all his doses. He's GOT to get his meds down to get well.
    Am praying for y'all, Hun

    Such a relief that its not Parvo.. Pups will be pups and no matter how hard you watch them they sneak things in their mouth. Meekos learnt to put his droopy jaws to the ground so they ruffle up and he licks whatevers on the ground. It looks as if he is just sniffin but ive caught him a few times with his tongue on the floor trying to eat somethin hes hidden with his dangly mouth.. Hope she is okay soon. Sendin love from Me & Meeko xx

    Yeah Kimbo is pretty sneaky at times and I've caught him too many times....but of course I can't catch him ALL the time... Thank you and Meeko for the support! We appreciate it dearly.
