Yes, the title was intended to get Karen's attention ;) Thought it was better to do a thread rather than PM in case others have similar questions.
Cannoli had giardia 6 weeks ago and was put on Panacur, metronidazole and Proviable DC. We continued the Proviable (and a little pumpkin) for 18 days after he finished the metronidazole. Within a day or two of stopping the proviable his stool got very soft and eventually diarrhea.
Our vet put him on a bland diet of wet RX canned food which firmed up the stool. We gradually weaned him off the RX food back to his kibble but the day he had all kibble the stool started getting soft again.
The vet recommended that we give him a quarter can of the RX food with every meal or 2 tablespoons of pumpkin with every meal for the foreseeable future to get him some extra fiber.
I'm now wondering if either instead of or in addition to the extra fiber if he should go back on a probiotic. His stool is firmer then it was but he still has some soft stools here and there.
Also, this morning was the second time that he has thrown up in his crate at around 5am. He usually gets up between 6:30-7am. I took him out and he pooped a ton. I think the throw up was simply a reaction to waking up or else because he had to poop and didn't want to go in his crate. He didn't whine or cry to get out first, just heard him gag.
So two main questions, would you recommend I get him back on Proviable for a while and any reason I should be concerned with him throwing up in his crate (previous time was about a week ago).
