Diahrea problem  
Last week Harmony got into the garbage and had a huge problem with diarea. My husband ended up taking her to the vets because it didn't look like it was going to stop anytime soon (she had continual probs for over 2 days). They gave her a shot and gave us medicine to give her, and a restricted diet. We were feeding her a 1/4 cup of rice and boiled hamburger after giving her her medicine. Then on Monday we were supposed to start mixing it with her dry food. Well, at first it did the trick, but ever since Monday she's been leaking, so she keeps staining the sheets, carpet, etc even though she's not pooping in the house. I really hate to take her back to the vet and spend another $89. She's still energetic and playful, doesn't act sick at all. Do any of you have any tips? Thanks!

Something like this happened with Lola last month. We eneded up having to bring her to the vet 4 times. She had reacted to the meds and needed an injection. The only tip I have is to again take her to the vet with a sample of her stool... They might need bloodwork and x-ray her too.

when Major gets sick and we don't know what is wrong, I have the vet give him a shot of electrolyte fluids. It's like $30-40 and I swear it has done more good than any test could. He always gets better within a day.

There are doggie diapers you can buy at pet stores if the leaking is continuing to be a problem. Be careful though, because some are just for peeing problems, and have poop holes in them.

Good luck.
