    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
    I beat it is, don't worry you'll get to the bottom of this one way or another. Tate's a strong guy.

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.
    Did they test him for giardia?!! (sp?!!) That can cause bloody/mucous stools… I'm not trying to add more worry, just thinking out loud!!! Lol

    the fecal test didn't show parasites; the medication he's on, flagyl, is used to treat giardia as well as other bugs and irritable bowel so I'm hoping it will help whatever Tate has.

    (I'm eating grilled Tuna as I'm reading about bloody poo. Goes to show how nothing fazes us with these Bullies anymore).

    haha!! I know, we're all immune to what the general public would think of as "gross!"

    how long did it take before Wellie's poop cleared up? did he also have some blood in it?

    He had a lot of blood in it. It started as regular diarrhea then progressed into very bloody diarrhea.
    He had it for about about two days. Once he started the metronidazole, it cleared up pretty fast. But he bled every 1-2 hours. We couldn't get him out fast enough.

    Oh wow, very scary, @nycbullymama!

    The first day of Tate's episode there was no blood but a lot of very soft poop, that's why I thought it was a reaction from the strawberry sundae the night before. But then later that day when I came home and there about 2 more piles with the blood interspersed throughout, that's when I went into a frantic mode. Since then he's only been going either once or twice a day, not like he's runny or has a sense of urgency. Hopefully whatever he has is slowing down and whatever that has been irritating his GI is getting released.

    Yeah, somethings definitely upset his system.
    It is scary, but apparently not all that uncommon. Fingers crossed it clears up quick!!

    Here's the little bugger right now; he's hoping some of my leftover birthday cake that I'm eating will fall to the floor. Not a chance!!
