    Green Feces - Losing weight
    paulas posted:
    My 13.5 year old miniature poodle (male - unaltered) has been very sick for the past 2 weeks. Started with diarrhea - extreme - then a few days later came blood with the diarrhea (quite a lot - to alarm me). Vet suspected pancreatitis. Test came back neg. He is still having spells of shivering (and it is not cold). His stools went to normal until this last night. I noticed they were getting loose again. He also went to the sidewalk and scooted his butt (he never does this). This morning his stool was completely green and not firm, but not diarrhea. I noticed it looked very strange so I put it in a zip lock bag and examined it. I found 3 pieces of small object that looks like rice kernels. Nothing was moving, but I am concerned it could be parasites. He has been on a diet of only rice and chicken over the past 9 days, but I thought all rice would digest. He also was on a medicine for a viral bacteria and finished those. Right after he finished those the Vet put him on antibiotics because during all this he broke a nail near the root. He has been on those antibiotics for 3 days now. Do you have any insight on what I should do next for him. In the past 2 weeks he has lost over 1 pound and is now down to 8.1 pounds. I am very worried. Thanks you
