    Well, this morning I'm still a worried mommy

    The poop today was pudding-like with some blood in it. Friday was when he had his first episodes of bloody diarrhea; he's on day 4 of a 5-day course of metronidazole. I guess I was hoping he'd be all "cured" by now! But like I said before, it does look better than the first episode. Not so much poo either and he goes his usual 2x/day.

    His energy level is very good. He sleeps soundly, he has an appetite, and he just seems like my old Tate. He may get a little more tired than usual but he's eating less so that could be why.

    Do u think I should add anything to his diet? right now he only eats boiled chicken breast, white rice and some chicken broth. Nothing else than that.
    Tate is such a good little boy, always so sweet even when he isn't feeling well. I worry about him so much, I just want him to get better soon.

    I think I would call the vet and see what else, if anything, they want you to do. I am praying for him.

    Yikes I thought he would be better this morning too. Maybe call the vet and tell them what's going on, maybe there's something else they'll go with. I'm so sorry he's going through this right now.

    Yeah, I would call the vet again and let them know you'll still seeing blood - just to see if what they recommend. Oh Tate, don't they know just what to give you for your birthday? A anxiety attack! Tyson gave us that gift for Christmas this past year. Ugh. So sorry Henny, hope you get some answers and he starts getting better. Its so hard when they are acting normal otherwise.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Oh NO… I was so hoping to hear he was on the mend. I would say add pumpkin to firm him up, but I would check w/the vets to see if that would make things worse. Do they think this is a stomach virus or something else like a parasite?!! I'm so sorry… I'm praying

    they did a test and it didn't show any parasites or anything out of the ordinary. The vet says to just continue w/the bland diet and the medication, and that it would be okay if I do want to give him some pumpkin mixed into the food. She was also saying something like the canned ID food I went home with might be better for him than my homemade food (??) Anyone want to give me feedback on that? Maybe b/c it contains ingredients that are made for a dog's digestion?? I don't know. I actually didn't speak to the vet herself but to the vet asst who relayed all my questions to vet.
    She also said it could be 5-7 days until full improvement is seen.

    I'm thinking I just want to keep him on the chicken/rice/broth diet and not add pumpkin for the time being. If he's still showing blood in the poo on Wed which is when his flagyl treatment ends, I will need to call them again.

    Thanks again everyone.

    I think it's safe to say that you as his mom have to go on your gut feeling. I think @ddnene suggestion about the pumpkin is really good advice. I would try that out before I would give him that canned food but that's just me. With that length of time I wonder if it would be a good idea to get a second opinion if there is still blood by Wednesday by a completely different vets practice. I'm praying big for Tate. XO

    Yes, have been thinking more about the pumpkin and also reading that this might be easier on the stomach than rice (?) I might give him some of this and less rice with the chicken.

    I had been thinking of a new vet for some time actually. This vet I'm seeing now was considering prolonging his flagyl if he still has diarrhea but I really don't want that b/c I'd like to know what the underlying cause is or if trying something different might be beneficial. My head is rather foggy right now
