Ok I have a question I hope you guys can help. I had a rescue that got adopted and right after they got him at 7 months old he started regurgitating all the time. They took him to the vet and the vet put him on metronidazole and Albion and a special food. She said it helped for a while then right back at it. He is telling her that it could be a muscle in his stomach and that it needs surgery. Now I have a 5 month old male puppy that is doing the same thing. I am taking him to the vet tomorrow. He does it after he drinks water. I seen him eating cat poop right before this started. It has been going on for about a week. The two dogs are not related at all. I am thinking that I have some kind of parasite around here that maybe the cats or other wild animals are carrying. Do any of you have any idea what it could be and what meds will fix it. I know that it is probably not the muscle that is making them do this any ideas are greatly appreciated
There is a really nasty cat parisite issue dogs can get from eating their poop. the name has escaped me right now, but it is the same thing pregnant women can get by cleaning a kitty litter box while they are pregnant. my understanding is it shows up when a pup is much younger, and usually kills them if left un treated. I will google and see if I can find what I am looking for lol.
Oh my god I think that is what is going on. I have been fighting all kinds of stuff with my dogs and giving all kinds of meds all but what they say fixes this. I have just had trouble with my litter and mom all my other dogs are not holding weight. Soft stools, red eyes the list go's on. I feed raw to my dogs and my cats. All this started after I fed dear meat a couple months ago. All of them have different symptoms so I did not connect the dots till my puppy started doing the same thing as the rescue that left two months ago. My puppy got very little raw at the time because he was so young. I am going to get my vet to let me try the clindamycin and I hope it works. I am also sending the other people some for there dog. Thank you so much for the help!
The cats are outside cats that came from the shelter. I have a lot of land that is far from the road so I told them that I would take the cats that are to wild to find homes for! They are not so wild anymore LOL. They know who feeds them. I called the vet and he said that toxoplasmosis is not real common in dogs but we are going to run some blood test just to be sure. They have to be sent to Idaho I think that's were he said. Anyway I have to take them in next Thursday for the tests. If any one can think of anything else is could be please let me know so I can get tests all done with one visit.
I'm sorry that your dogs are feeling badly. Sometimes, when a yard is treated with pesticides, a problem can occur, or perhaps your dogs are eating something dangerous which is located in an unknown place in your yard. Keep an eye on what they may be getting into all the while when they are outside. What kind of food do they eat? What a time for you...I hope you get to the bottom of their problems soon. B.B.
