ugh. i should have known it when this morning kuma actually pooped before my eyes inside my room, no less .. very loose stool because he just couldn't hold it.
but when i came home this afternoon there was diarrhea ALL OVER his crate and his blanket and the carpet all around the crate and AHHHH i was going nuts. i had to hand wash his blanket and my scarf that was near the crate just so i could get it decent enough to take to a laundromat. and then i promptly put kuma and his crate outside on the balcony.
the smell is overrrrrwhelllmingg. i've opened all the windows in the house and the smell just won't go away.
and then i see kuma going poo again on the mat on the balcony. sigh.
so everytime i went outside to clean something up kuma kept looking at me like, "so can i come back inside NOW, mama?"
and for now kuma has been banished onto the balcony with a bowl of water and a puppy pad until i can muster enough energy to wipe off his feet. and bring him back inside.
Oh ok. I didnt know he had something funky to eat. The other day rocky was puking everywere Found out the kids gave him to much food forom the birthday party. Usualy he will pick up what ever drops but they were giving them all there food and he was happy to take it. The parents didnt think much of it thinking a little wont hurt but alot of littles is not good.
Do it like a bandaid. Fill the tub up toss him in and befor you knwo it it will be done. There are times when i hate doing things and I put it off put it off put it off and i get stressed thingking about it but once its done Im fine. If i lived neer you I would come over and help (i knwo how bad cleaning up nastyness can be) but i can So if you like I can be your cheerleader and pop in this message to cheer you on now and then
I am very sorry. My dog did that the other day, and ruined a nice new 5x8 rug I had bought. I tried all sorts of things on it, I threw it in the bathtub and bathed my rug. Smell is still in it. So the rug is in the garage.
I feel for you!!!! Hope your puppy feels better soon.
Well the puppy may not be doing this JUST for attention. Diahrrea isnt for attention. It is definitely a medical issue. Try him with baby rice for a few days, if not go to the vet as he may have a common parasite called Giardia, most puppies get it and it is easily cured!
haha, WHAT?! i don't think i ever stated, or even IMPLIED, that my dog was doing this for attention.
then i clarified that i fed him something that upset his stomach.
well, anyways, update:
everything's fine and dandy now, just that i can't get this slight lingering smell of poo in the air in my room. i'll give it until tomorrow afternoon, but i'm gonna be doing some serious scrubbing if it doesn't get better after that.

I'm glad to hear that your dog is fine now. You said that you fed him a "shed stop thing", what on earth is that?
Perhaps the only solution is to do a search on the internet for products that are especially designed to get rid of pet odours from carpets and hiring a carpet cleaning machine so that you can spray ample amounts of the product into your carpet and you can suck it back up with the machine. I don't think that doing it by hand is going to prove successful unfortunately.
Careful with the vinegar, it's okay for hard grounds but I wouldn't take the risk on carpets, besides which I have found that it doesn't really take the smell out at all, it only seems to emphasise it somewhat.
You'll have to strip down to the basics and get him into the tub. But let him sit out there for a little while to make sure hes done, then clean him up, and I would take him out for a good walk. I would rather clean up a poopy dog then a dirty diaper -"ew"
I'm glad Kuma's feeling better! This happened to my American Eskimo (Kai) after I put Frontline on him. That's the only thing he had that was different. He had it so bad he'd try to come back in the house and the back of his legs (his fancy pants, as I call them) would be covered. I had to stop him at the door and hose his behind off. The next time he needed a dose of flea meds, I was nervous. I tried Advantage instead and he didn't have a reaction. It was weird because he's had Frontline before without any reaction.
there's a lingering smell.. not because my dog smells, but because the carpet had been saturated with feces for a few hours.
and the shed stop thing is "Mrs. Allen's Shed Stop" which is a dietary supplement you purchase at pet stores, and it has a lot fish oil and whatnot in it and is supposed to help your dog shed less. i fed it to him after many months of not feeding it to him because he had starting blowing his coat. guess it just didn't agree with him.
but yeah, i mean, the overall bulk of the mess cleaned up, i guess it's just that i saturated the carpet so much that the wetness is bringing up the smell, i should probably put kuma's crate elsewhere so the carpet can air out but maybe later because the rooms a mess from all the chaos before.
we had to make another "potty run" after i had fallen asleep for about 3 hours.. kuma was making an awful ruckus in his crate and then i swear i smelled poop again. so i put on his leash and off we went outside. i guess he just had to pee really bad and then he had a little bit of the runs again, followed by gas. sigh. poor kid lol.
i might just borrow my mom's carpet steam cleaner this weekend, but she had advised against it because it supposedly weighs a ton. now back to sleep ;)

It would be best if you fast Kuma for 24 hours so as to give his tummy a rest and then resume with 1/2 the amount of the usual food that you give him with 1/2 rice; I know that some vets suggest chicken and rice but if your dog is not used to that then you will find that he will still get the runs.
