Metronidazole, probiotics and poop

Started this discussion. Last reply by Karen, Jasper and Jackdoodle 1 hour ago. 22 Replies

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…Continue

When to neuter

Started this discussion. Last reply by Connie Apr 19. 28 Replies

We have an almost 5 month old male Doodle.  I haven't seen any recent threads about when is the best time to neuter him.  My vet says 6 months but our breeder was more in favor of waiting until 10-12…Continue

Bladder infection or starting to mark?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Karen, Jasper and Jackdoodle Mar 27. 6 Replies

Cannoli is 17 weeks and the past two days I've noticed he's been squatting more with only a few drops coming out.  His first pee after a decent wait has a pretty normal stream but then he continues…Continue

Pea Gravel in a Dog Run

Started this discussion. Last reply by Karen, Jasper and Jackdoodle Mar 25. 14 Replies

We're building out a dog run as there is a door off our mud room to the side of our house.  Our yard gets very muddy so I don't love the idea of using our backyard for potty with Cannoli off…Continue

"How old is he now?I'd go back to the psyllium until you can get a fecal test done. If he does have giardia, the psyllium alone will not fix the stool issues. I don't think it's the lack of psyllium causing this, or it would have…"

"So Cannoli has been off the psyllium for about two weeks.  He still takes the probiotic with a little pumpkin or sweet potato once a day.  Everything had been going well and his stools was generally firm until yesterday though there were…"

ks-man replied to Kim P.'s discussion Advice - Loose Stool + Vomiting
"What does it mean when the first few pieces come out well formed and firm and then some soft mushy stool follows?  This happens a lot for Cannoli where 75% of his poop is firm and 25% is soft (just an approx..).  Do I consider this a firm…"

"Cannoli's about 30 pounds.  I use this harness https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078N3FCHT I like that it has a ring on both the front and back so I can clip the lease on the front when he's pulling which turns him towards me."

ks-man replied to Kim P.'s discussion Advice - Loose Stool + Vomiting
"It just becomes very tough because most of us aren't familiar enough to debate with our vets about these antibiotics and what type of treatment we'd prefer instead.  My vet said that she likes to prescribe metronizadole along with…"

"And maybe the Florastor is not the one I'm thinking of...  In humans SIBO can be caused by low stomach acid."

Adina P replied to ks-man's discussion Metronidazole, probiotics and poop
"Maybe that depends on the amount of psyllium vs. the mushiness of the poop (without psyllium)?"

Karen, Jasper and Jackdoodle replied to ks-man's discussion Metronidazole, probiotics and poop
"Your plan sounds perfect to me. Keep up the probiotics, but once you feel confident about his digestion and diet, you can discontinue the psyllium. You can even try cutting back the amount you are using. "

ks-man replied to ks-man's discussion Metronidazole, probiotics and poop
"Cannoli has been on the Proviable and 1/4 teaspoon of Psyllium Fiber along with sweet potato or pumpkin twice a day for about a week now and his stool has definitely firmed up.  There are the occasional looser stools but they're still…"

"GBK.... I am in Henderson, NV and our Vet wrote a waiver letter for us when we licensed our Beau. She highly recommended waiting until he was at least year old and stated the studies of early neutering on large breeds. I was a bit worried being new…"

"It would make more sense to me to move the fighting breeds out of the city instead of an arbitrary spaying/neutering age. But I know there's a lot of controversy along with that too."

"When you get the rabies vaccine the vets are supposed to let the registering place know the dog and address and send a bill.  My vet doesn't do this, because I never got a notice after the puppy got his rabies shot. When you show or breed…"
