4 days of diarrea
« on: August 04, 2008, 05:20:47 pm »
Marley has had diarrea for about 4 days now. He hasn't changed his behaviour at all - but the loose stool just pours out ( sorry to be graphic). I have him on boiled rice and hamburger as I read that is what usually clears it up however it doesn't seem to be helping? any other ideas or should I be taking him into the vet?

Boiled rice and hamburger always gives Lily diarrhea  :(
Also, have you waited 24 hours before giving it to him?

Grace and Lady would get coccidia once in a while.  the vet said it's a soli born bacteria that if left untreated will clear up in about 2 weeks, but 1.) who wants to deal with that for 2 weeks and 2.) should be treated with antibotics that will improve the issue very quickly. 
I would suggest a visit to the vet also.
