    Unhappy Diarrhea and Throwing up every other day!

    Hello Everyone.
    First time caller here.
    I have VooDoo Lou Nanne. 3 1/2 yrs. Male
    This started two weeks ago. Every other day, Lou wakes up to throwing up yellow bile and diarrhea. His stomach sounds like star wars, and he would not eat! On these days (Lou Eats, lol) This happned Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Also eating grass, understandable. Tuesday, Thursday totally fine.
    Saturday, made him chicken and rice. Fed this diet morning and night, and Sunday morning. I changed his food on Sunday night, thinking his food went bad. Changed to Canidae wild boar limited ingredients.
    No problems till Wednesday morning . Same issue but throw up was broken down food, stinky like barf.
    Took him to the NEW vet, (because we just moved last month from Florence, Oregon to Minot, North Dakota)
    Had vet do blood work and exray, $400 later, tests all negative and started him on, cephalexin and metronidazole. Antibiotic and anti diarrhea, throwing up meds. (He has also lost 6 lbs. Was 70, now 64 lbs.)
    Thursday, Friday all good. Eating fine but stool kinda soft.
    This morning woke up to throwing up again.
    Sorry this is sooo detailed, but wanted to give as much info as possible.

    Please help me with my big baby boy.

    I'm sure someone will come on with some great help,,,,Is there something new in the yard that he's getting a hold of??? and they didn't see any blockage?? only other thing I can think of is he's upset from the move... And why i'd even say that is if all tests are coming back normal, i'd have to think mabie it's his discomfort with the move.. they are so touchy about these things but others will have better input.. I know when mine have done the 'morning bile' thing, it's because of empty tummies... And!!!!!!!!!!!!!! its perfect that your detailed! Best wishes, and soon to hear from some experienced bully lovers here..

    Blood work negative, X Ray negative- if they did proper blood work, rules out gall bladder, liver, kidney issues and intestinal blockage. Did they do fecal exam to rule out parasites ? If it doesn't resolve I guess they will have to do more diagnostic tests.

    In the meantime I would put dog on bland diet of boiled chicken and rice for a week. Give dog good doggie probiotic , especially good would be herbsmith microflora plus since it also has enzymes. If you can't get a doggie probiotic, try kefir, sauerkraut from the refrigerator, or DanActive liquid yoghurt.

    Thank you for the response. I feel you on the move thing, but he went almost three weeks and was fine. He eats everything!! I thought about the small branches that fall on the back porch as well. I have made that area unavailable for the time being to rule that out. All good thoughts, but have kinda ruled these out.

    It's so hard when things are not obvious and able to be fixed right away. Wishing you luck. Maybe stick with the bland like was mentioned for a little bit longer

    Funny you say that. I took pics of stool but not sample. May be next step.
    I use plain yogurt as his "somtimes" snacks, so I know he's good with that.
    Thank you for your input.

    I also vote for comprehensive poop sample analysis! There many ugly parasites that can cause problems, like Coccidia, Giardia and many many more. Actually, giardia can cause bile vomiting.

    You know, it lasts long enough to think about parasite, not just stomach flu. As you said, you ruled our surgical pathology.

    But poop sample must be very fresh, the best no more 30 minute old, still warm. Then your chances to know what is wrong are the best.

    Good luck and hope your baby will get better soon.

    WOW... poor guy, sounds like a lot is going on. First off... I would have them check his stools to make sure it's not a parasite. Secondly you have to do a food change very gradually, if you do feed him a bland diet you need to give that several days. My Walter was vomiting a couple of weeks ago and he had a bland diet for almost a week and I gave him boiled rice and ground sirloin. I'm not sure about Canidae dog food, but we always advice to check on www.dogfoodadvisor.com for their food ratings, and we also recommend a grain-free food. When you add his new food give him 1/4 cup at a time w/the bland diet and gradually add more in to see how he reacts. You can also give him PURE pumpkin (not pie filling) to his food to bulk up his stools. I give my guys a tablespoon at a time and see how they react.

    I hope this helps, and keep us posted on how he's doing... Welcome to EBN, we are so glad to have you here!!!

    Thank you for your input.

    How is your baby doing? I wondering if it is related to the new environment, something in the area that is messing with his system
