Sigh, it feels like the "Gizmo problems" never stop….back and forth to the vet we go...anyways;
Gizmo has been having some stomach or colon problems. His stool has been very soft, on the edge of being diarrhea, it's color is very light/yellow, also some blood has been turning up in it, as well as small amounts running out of his rectum. He didn't want to eat, and looked like he had problems while pooping....looked like something big is trying to get out.
On Monday 23 (today is Thursday) I went to the vet. She took his temp, and did a finger test, there was blood on her finger when it came out, not much, but it was there. Poor Gizmo pressed his face deep into me and breathed real hard as she did this! I think he knew we wanted to help, we was very good about it.
I was then given something called Diarsanyl, which is an oral pasta which protects the colon during prolonged diarrhea since it can damage the organ.
I was also told to give Gizmo a Rice + Chicken diet. I think it was to clean out his system of any dog food, and give his stomach something new to work on.
Needless to say Gizmo LOVES this diet and I dread the day I have to serve him his dog food again. He licks his lips constantly as I prepare it! And he actually does 3-5 spins around in joy as I walk over to put the bowl down for him. Haha, what a nut!
Well after 3 days, still no improvement, and I called the vet today and we are going back tomorrow. She mentioned they might keep him there.
Besides his stool being loose, and with signs of blood. He is playful and awake. I know dogs usually become "depressed" if something is wrong, but he seems fine.
What I wanted to know if anyone have some tips/suggestions on things to ask/inform my vet to do. Like tests etc... Or if anyone has experienced the same thing?
