doggie dirrhea
aussiemom01 posted:
I have a 4 yr old Australian shepherd. He has been throwing up yellow bile and suffering from dirrhea for sometime now. I have taken him the vet and they ran all the test she could think of and they found nothing! So we left with no anwers, the vet suggested having him nurtured. She said he is a breed that hyper already and that could help. So I dont know what to do? Please help..

I hope you've seen a vet. If not, take your dog now!
zotie6 responded:
Did they do a stool analysis to check for worms/parasites? Do you change your dogs diet alot? Some dogs digestive tract can't handle frequent changes in food. I have never heard that an intacted dog (not neutered) would cause vomiting and chronic diarrhea??? Definately get a second option.
Ernie Ward, DVM responded:

Poor boy! Some key medical history information to help your vet help your pet include:

1) When is the diarrhea/vomiting occurring? Is there a pattern? After feeding? In the morning? Etc.

2) Characterize the vomitus/diarrhea.

3) What is your pet's current diet? Include any treats, table snacks, supplements, etc. VERY IMPORTANT because diet is often a key cause of chronic, intermittent vomiting and diarrhea.

4) Medications, including heartworm and flea preventives.

5) Any previous medical history/illness/injuries.

Aside from this issue, I also advocate neutering your baby unless he is being used for breeding.

Take this information to your vet and see what the next steps are. Many of these cases can be readily identified and corrected with just a little work from everyone.

Good luck! Dr. Ernie
